Thank heaven for the weekend...'s crafty time!

I thought I would talk embellishments today as I'm in the shop just mooching round and came across some little bargains which I thought you'd like to know about.

One of the big trends with cards at the moment are what we refer to as Accent Pins, some people say hat pins but basically they are pins with a jewelled top to them, largely used with a ribbon tie of some sort they bring a certain amount of glamour and finesse to your cards without being garish.  We currently stock 6 different sorts however are hoping to increase this range as the trend for them continues.

My absolute favourite out of them all is the Pearl Droplet...

To me this one just looks very classic

Below is the Acrylic Crystal

last but by no means least the pink pearl

To view the range of these click here to go to our website

Well I hope you like them and be sure to have a good look around the website as there are things being reduced at various points.

Brrrrrrrrr feels like the depths of winter again!!

But happy Wednesday anyway peeps, how are you all?

We are back to normal now after exhibiting at the Excalibur Craft Fair at the Motorcycle Museum, Coventry on Saturday just passed.  We had a good day and it was very nice to meet a great bunch of people, traders and customers alike.  For us it's a nice local fair to attend and like I say it was a great day and the majority of people seemed happy with what they saw.  The next one is going to be in April (at my last memory) however as soon as I know more I'll let you know too.

Next up.....the first Bee Crafty Crop of 2011 is on Sunday 6th February with myself, and my goodness there will be cake!!! We have some catching up to do!  Now I may have mentioned before but our crops are very friendly with lots of tea, coffee and cake (we have squash too!) and we try and get a bit of crafting done aswell!!!  There are a couple of spaces left so if you fancy it then get in touch, you can book it HERE and all for the bargain price of £2.50, not only that but when you come to the crop if you spend £20 or more then we refund the Crop fee anyway! 

We have already mentioned it on Facebook today but we have reduced some stamps instore by 50%, this will ultimately come onto the website as and when we can.

So there we go i'll leave it there for now

Wonderful Wonderful .....


Afternoon/Evening all.

How the devil are we?  I am great - had a great day at the shop, the sun was shining so can't really ask for more than that. 

We had a lovely lady and her mum in the shop today talking about wedding stationery so I thought that I would give you a bit of info on that and see what other things I can think about along the way.  Here at Bee Crafty we are asked for wedding stationery on a weekly basis, often more than once.  It's the first time that any of your potential guests get a glimpse of your big day and as such needs to be perfect.  Everyone wants something specific for them but as with everything the cost is crucial, doing your wedding stationery with us means you don't have to compromise on either. 

This is the Ivory Linen Collection - you can view the range on our website here we also have samples of the invitations in the shop so if you wanted to have a good look then do pop in. 

I think the thing with this stationery is that it's a great place within your wedding to make savings yet still have the designs that you want.  Also if there is some sort of theme, at whatever level, that you wish to create we will do all we can to facilitate this.

So have a look on the website and if you want a closer look or just to have a chat and work something out.

So just before I go can you tell me what sort of interesting themed weddings have you been to or how was a theme brought to the wedding?  Just comment on this page and let me know.

Take care

Wet Wednesday, weather perfect for....

crafting inside!!!

Hiya Everyone

How are we all? Well I hope.

Wanted to mention a couple of things today, first up VAT.......yuck!!! As you will probably know the VAT went up in January to 20%, not ideal for anyone so what we've done (because we like you so much) is decided that our prices are staying the same!  We want you guys to still be able to get those great prices and still be able to enjoy crafting without having higher prices in the back of your mind.  So thats that!

Next up, I happened to notice that a box of goodies arrived in the shop

The Confetti Collection from Craftwork Cards

Stunning I would say and there are different elements to it all, very nice indeed, this is cardmaking perfection for me, the die cuts are already cut, the paper is beautifully co-ordinated it's all ready to go......which makes for very quick yet good cardmaking.

I have it on good authority that this isn't a one off either so keep your eyes peeled for something similar coming up soon.

Think i'll leave you mooching around looking at that for now, oh one last thing don't forget the Bee Crafty Challenge Blog, you've got to be in it to win it!

4 days late but still wishing you........


To all our customers, friends and anyone else who would prefer another nametag!

So I hope you all had a wonderful festive season and now as normality returns, so do we.  Today was the "first day back" and it was great.  Old (I don't mean in age!!!) customers are finding us and also some new ones too - as ever this is a move that is supported by the very best customers in the world - YOU!!!

We are just in the process of putting together our workshop list so if there is something that you are particularly looking to do then let us know and by the same means any requests (we've had a few strange one's so don't worry) let us know - we'll do what we can!

So here's a few photo's of the very early stages of us moving for those of you that haven't seen it

So there are some varying views - come and have a look - we hope to see you all soon

Take Care
