The heat is on ...

The heat is truly on!  What an outstanding three weeks, of the most gorgeous weather.  The downside to this, has been the fact that we have been working our little socks off, indoors in soaring temperatures!  I am sure we are not the only ones working with electric fans blowing everything around, while trying to keep cool! 

We have had an incredibly busy fortnight as you may know, with our fabulous special guests,
Sue Wilson and Barbara Gray, but behind the scenes we have also been very busy with weddings!  Lots of weddings in July and August and therefore lots of  requests for table plans, place settings, menus, table toppers etc.  Charlotte is making a very special table plan this week, a very special request, perhaps we may be able to share this later, after the wedding has passed, but it's going to be amazing!

Christmas in July?

Yep, that's right, Christmas in July!  We have already received lots of Christmas stock in the last two weeks and we are making room on our shelves for it!  And to follow on from this, this Thursday's Craft Night is going to be a Christmas one! ( I really must get up into the attic and bring my Christmas stash down ... where do you keep yours?)

Christmas stock wasn't the only thing arriving in the post this week ... we also received a very special parcel from Sue Wilson.  Sue found time in her very busy schedule, and before jetting off, to make some of her special 'cookies' for us.  They are truly delicious and we are making our way through them.  Thank you Sue, they are lovely!


And there were at least four layers of these cookies!



DIY Wedding

This weekend, Charlotte ran another of her very popular DIY wedding classes.  It was a busy one!  Hopefully everyone picked up some tips, techniques and of course some ideas to help them create their own wedding stationery.  But, we are always there if anyone needs some help or advice!

Now, I'm having a week off this week (apart from Craft Night), so before I go, here's a run down of what's coming up at The Papeterie.

Funny when you say christmas in July, i have been hearing songs on the radio and seen movies on TV with christmas theme, probably this is how they try to get that winter feeling in our head in these sunny hot summer days.
