Blendibilities and other news
Good afternoon all!
Have you had a good week? I'm so sorry I've been absent, but I'm back today with Stampin' Up! news and other snippets.
My daughter has been unwell and I've had a super busy week with work. For those that don't know me well I work in an outside clothing shop - we sell camping and hiking gear. We're going from the Autumn Winter season through to the Spring Summer season which means a lot of work! The whole branch has to be moved around and we have tons of new lines in ready for Summer.
I haven't been able to get to the gym much, and I've also been unwell, but I went this morning and Operation Take Back Control is going well! A jump on the doctor's scales last week confused matters a little (they said I was lighter than I thought I was!!) but going by the ones at my gym I have finally managed to lose my first stone. I am so chuffed!
Stampin' Up! news now. Some of you may have heard that Stampin' Up! have taken the sad decision to discontinue the Blendibilities Markers. This is effective immediately due to a manufacturing problem. Not all of the markers are defective, and most do what they are supposed to but there have been some quality standards issues with some of the pens. It was a hard decision to pull the whole line but after some lengthy consideration this decision was made.
They are no longer available as a Sale-a-Bration item, which means that the other items will be chosen instead (making them available while stocks last) so please order soon if there is something you would really like.
Although this is massively disappointing it was absolutely right of Stampin' Up! to withdraw them and must have been such a difficult (and brave) decision to make. Their customers and demonstrators are very important and so it was crucial this decision was made to make sure everyone was happy.
If you have purchased Blendibilities through me please check your stock and then let me know if you're not happy in any way. Those of you that have been buying craft supplies from Stampin' Up! for a while will know that this really was very unusual for Stampin' Up! to have to make this decision.
Thank you to all the people who have ordered in the last week (press the Shop Online Now button at the top of the screen to browse or buy) and thanks for stopping by!
