Happy Monday,

I hope you can join me and Lisa Horton for the launch of the One Day Special on Hochanda tonight at 8pm.  For those who may have missed Hochanda it is on Channel 39 on Freeview, 663 on Sky and online (in HD) at! Lisa and I will be introducing the Brand New range of papers from Craft Consortium as well as some Brand New MDF pieces from Creative Expressions.  I thought I would start the reveal with this fab Staionery set which comes flat packed for you to decorate.

This large piece is the first one I will be demoing on the launch show, so you will have to tune in to see how this is put together and covered! lol

This comes as part of a 2 piece set with a smaller holder that is perfect for your pens and pads etc as well as making a really useful remote control holder.  I believe that Lisa has decorated one of these as a remote holder, I'm hoping its in the right colours as I could do with one for my lounge!

I really hope you can Join me and lisa as she has some brilliant demo's planned!  I have added a few more pictures of both units in case you want some inspiration.

We will be on all day Tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and 7pm !
