New look.

Hello friends of the Pixies.
We were fortunate enough to be able to purchase some fabulous new shelving for our little shop. This is the little front room you walk into first. These two stands are just perfect for displaying all sorts of cards and of

the page projects.
We have been able to do away with the 'a' frame in the middle of the shop and use our newly purchased racks. It really does open the shop up and makes it bright and airy.
Call in to check out what it looks like in real life. We do have hand made cards by several talented ladies for sale and they are displayed in a fabulous revolving cardrack now.
Our PUNCH SALE is still on with some larger punches on special for HALF PRICE. Specials will be while stocks last.
We have a small selection of new papers in and are awaiting the arrival of some fantastic 'beaded ribbons. Look out for that in store soon.
Thanks for checking in.

Unfold your wings & fly !!
Cheers from the Pixies

Having a blast with Coco.

Christina Leahy [Coco] was our Guest Host on Wednesday 30th June. We ran a day and night class. We created the most beautiful collage card with a christmas theme. We appreciate Coco taking time out from her family holiday to spend it with the Pixies and friends.
This is our night class and their finished collage cards.
Above: Coco, Jane [holding my card as well], Amanda & Lisa.

Our day class was well supported and the Pixies will definately be organising DAY CLASSES on a Wednesday soon, so keep a eye out for those.

The night class was heaps of fun and Jane & myself were able to participate as well due to some last minute non-attendances.
I told you I would Jane .... hee hee. So cute really !!
Our lovely Lisa having some well deserved R & R.
The finished product. Even though we all used the same pieces, we all put our own spin on the collage card and they turned out to be very unique creations.
Once again we thank Coco so much for taking the time to join us.
Don't forget to bring your works in and show us so we can pass onto Coco the fun you are all having playing with collage.
At present we are preparing for KIDS CLASSES as it's school holidays now.
Kids classes are on MONDAY and WEDNESDAY of both weeks. The classes start at 1pm and finish at 3pm. BOOK NOW as we have very limited seating left.
Cheers for now from the Pixies.
