From little things big things grow!!!!!!

From little things big things grow!!!!  Share our journey and see how A Place to Create is coming to life. From bare walls and floors, add a little carpet, some paint, some design features that had the boys up the ladders (sorry boys), build a wall, add some shelves and a rack or two a counter and our shop is coming together. The stock started arriving last week with the first 7 boxes, then daily from then on with 19 boxes of Kaisercraft wood arriving yesterday.  The back wall is covered with 120 different designs of gold and silver craft stickers, a huge range of chipboard arrived today and cardstock will arrive later in the week.  What a time to shop with complete ranges of all the Kaisercraft papers and embellishments, all the different colours of paints, rhinestones and pearls, the full sets of rub ons large and small and the largest range of Kaisercraft wood you could wish for- be quick to get the best picks of the complete ranges.

Don’t forget we open this Saturday 21st August with our Grand Opening Sunday 22nd August from 10 -3.

 See you all soon,

Regards Gayle & A Place to Create Team

You can’t keep a lid on Creativity!!!

The stock has not finished being racked up, the doors are not open yet – BUT you can’t keep a lid on creativity.  Can you believe it a creative staff member has already started to make my very first samples for A Place to Create.  The Large Desk Organiser, a page layout and a set of cards have all been created using the new paper range ‘Hippy Girl’ from Kaisercraft.  Visit the store from Saturday the 21st of August to be inspired with all the new stock lines, samples, ideas and creativity.

My patience is paying off, the painting is now finished and the carpet gets started tomorrow. I can’t wait to open my boxes of stock that have already arrived that contain 15 full ranges of papers and embellishments from Kaisercraft including the new August collections Hippy Girl and Secret Bird Society.

Hello and Welcome to ‘A Place to Create’

Exciting news- the lease was finally signed today- horray!!! I can now tell you that my new shop will be at unit 24/1147 South Pine Road, Arana Hills, Nth Brisbane. They say I have to be patient and wait until the shop is fitted out, the walls painted and floor coverings down before I can start to put stock in. Patience is not my virtue but I’m learning. So instead I have been busy setting up accounts with wholesalers and finding some yummy stock for you all to enjoy. At this time I expect that I will open early September 2010 if not sooner- so watch this space for all the excitement yet to happen in the birth of ‘A Place to Create’.

There is no ‘i’ in TEAM.

As we all know there is no ‘i’ in team. i know it is only early days of my new venture and already i feel i have to say a big thank you to my team. My thanks goes to everyone who has supported me already and i know will continue to support me, and that includes you Hannah for your lovely gift today, i love it!! But today my special thanks has to go to my incredibly clever and creative technicians who are responsible for this blogspot and what ever else involves computers and that sort of technical stuff. Any of you who know me well will know i may be creative but when it comes to computers, blogspots, facebook, twitter and all that i am hopeless. Today was my very first post (they told me that’s what it was called) let alone they say i have to do twitter and facebook- please help me, posting was enough for one day. So thank you to my technical gurus, you know who you are!!!

Gayle
