Hi there, everyone. Stuart here. How are you all doing today?
You can tell it’s autumn, can’t you, because the spiders are EVERYWHERE! I’ve found countless numbers of them in my garden. No longer hiding in the shadows, but spinning their webs between any solid objects they can find. They’re taking over. And not just the garden – the house also. Every corner of every ceiling sees a spider find it’s place. And boy have we seen some BIG ones. Fascinating creatures, spiders are. I have no desire to get too close, but still, there is something incredibly fascinating about them, isn’t there? Did you know that spider webs are made of silk which is stronger (proportionately) than steel! Yes, that is silk as you would think of it. Clothing has even been made of spider silk just like other silk, although it took a LOT of spiders to produce enough and a VERY LONG time to produce it. You find out more here.
Anyway, since our spider friends have indicated that the seasons are on the turn, we thought we’d go for a bit of an autumnal theme with our Products of the Month, this month.
Our Pinetum 3-way Overlay stamp set, Funky Leaves stencil and Fresh Cut, plus our Country Hillside Groovi Plate certainly give a suitably rustic, turn of the season feel!
And each of these beauties is on offer with 33% off for the rest of the month, so why not grab yourself a bargain and see what wondrous creations you can conjure up with them?
Oh, and don’t forget to send us your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org. We LOVE seeing your artwork and we’d love to share it on the blog, too!
And, for a little extra incentive, anyone who sends me in some artwork using any of the above four products to email@example.com – pop your address in the email and I’ll send you out a little surprise in the post 😉 How’s about that? No deadline on that… Just send in a snap of your artwork featuring any of the above and I’ll share it on the blog and send you out a prize.
Thanks for reading everyone. Have a nice day 🙂
