Hello! I’m back again with an­other round-up of all the crafty go­ings-on here at Crafter’s Com­pan­ion HQ, and it’s been an­other whirl­wind month!

I’ve been ab­so­lutely thrilled to hear all your pos­i­tive feed­back from the re­lease of our brand-new Spec­trum Noir ink pads and our new Gem­ini GO ma­chine – they have been a long time in the mak­ing so it was be­yond ex­cit­ing to fi­nally launch them on HOCHANDA and to see how ex­cited all you guys were too! I’d love to hear more from crafters about how they’re find­ing the new prod­ucts and what they’re cre­at­ing, so please do share all your crafty makes with me on our Crafter’s Com­pan­ion Face­book page. We re­cently reached 60k likes, and it re­ally is a plea­sure to be able to hear di­rectly from so many of you and see what projects you’re work­ing on!

Oliver has been show­ing a real in­ter­est in arts and crafts re­cently, so we took him to do some pot­tery paint­ing and had a lovely af­ter­noon with the fam­ily – even my nan joined in! He ab­so­lutely loved it, and as an added bonus we timed it per­fectly with Char­lie’s nap so we were all able to fo­cus on Oliver and his tal­ents. The look of con­cen­tra­tion on his lit­tle face was just price­less!

We also took an­other trip over to the US this month, and this time even Si­mon came along for the ride – although, judg­ing by his face, I’m not sure ex­actly how de­lighted he was at the prospect of the eight-hour flight! We met up with the rest of the Crafter’s Com­pan­ion team in At­lanta, Ge­or­gia, and it was such a bril­liant, pro­duc­tive few days. To end such a fab­u­lous time in style, we just had to fin­ish with a cel­e­bra­tory drink. I re­ally do work with a fan­tas­tic bunch of peo­ple!

That’s all for now, un­til next time… happy craft­ing!
