The Day Sue Wilson Came To Town

Firstly, I'm going to apologise for my lack of posts lately - we are so busy at work, with being short-staffed and being slap bang in the middle of the busiest time of year for weddings. The time away from work that I have, I'm spending with my family so crafting and blogging are being left by the wayside for the moment. But to make up for it I'm going to be running some giveaways over the next few weeks. But before I do that, I just want to tell you about the fantastic day we had at The Papeterie yesterday. We've been flat out all week preparing the shop, cleaning, tidying, rearranging, pricing and getting out dozens of boxes of new stock, cutting, boxing and putting out pallets and pallets of paper and card. All in preparation for the fabulous Sue Wilson. And it was worth every minute, what a fantastic turn out we got - on the hottest day of the year so far.

Charlotte managed to organise a piper to greet Sue at the shop, as a wee surprise for her - she loved it.

Sue made 20 cards over the course of the day - each one was raffled in aid of The Papeterie's chosen charity for 2013, Archway. 
Here's one of our regular customers who was over the moon at winning one of Sue's cards...

Sue had a great time in Aberdeen, and loved all the goodies in the hamper Charlotte and Pearl presented her with at the end of the day. And the best bit about the day - we've smashed our £3000 target, with well over £400 raised with the day's raffle.

See you later this week for a promarker giveaway :)
