Color Update!

Posted on

Can you believe it was only three years ago that we were all atwitter, a mixture of angst and excitement, with the announcement that some of the colors in the Stampin’ Up! Color Families were being retired to make way for new colors?! Oh. My. Gosh. The cyber-waves were buzzing!

Well, grab your seats Inkee Fiddlers as it’s happening again!

Yes, 10 colors are being discontinued from the current catalog to make way for another 10 colors. These are retiring colors…

Retiring 2013 Colors

BUT... not only are these colors retiring but there’s been a shake-up with the current colors. Yes, it’s been realized that some colors are more suited to other color families so are being moved. This will be the new Stampin’ Up! Color Family as of next June 1st…2013 New Color FamilyAnd these shall be our new colors! As you can see, four of the 2011-2013 In-Colors (naturally NOT my fav Lucky Limeade, dang it!) have been added to the permanent families whilst some old favorites have returned.

PLUS, there is to be one brand newie to Stampin’ Up!, Smoky Slate which is kinda nice wouldn’t you agree?! I’m wondering if with a little spritzing of shimmer mist it will look a little like buffed stainless steel, hmmmm.

2013 Color Refresh

And don’t forget, with all orders over $50 a copy of the new 2013-2014 Annual Idea Book and Catalog will be added as a little thank you from me to you.

Long time between fiddlings…

Posted on

My goodness has it really been so long since I’ve shared anything here?

First off I’d like to apologize for my abrupt disappearance. The week of my last posting was a week of extremes. We’d waited the longest time for a possible move to Canada for my husband’s work and that was the week we were finally advised he was needed NOW and our visas for us were being proceed.

Our excitement was short-lived however as the day after this advice we were informed of some other news, my Darling Father had cancer. And not just cancer, a rare aggressive inoperable form of bladder cancer that sadly took his life only four-and-a-half months after official diagnosis.

What a week, and we still had my Lovely Mother’s 80th birthday celebration which were so bitter-sweet. My father was to be admitted immediately to hospital but an infection saw the inevitable delayed two weeks so he was able to attend the lunch. It was a wonderful day as nearly all the family was there. It would also be the last time we’d all be together with our pending move to Canada. Yep, still brings tears to my eyes…

No sooner had we finished unpacking here in beautiful Kitimat – British Columbia, the children and I moving to Canada in April when my father appeared stable, joining my husband who’d flown ahead for work when the call came. We needed to be back in Australia immediately.

That was June 2011. The children and I didn’t return to Canada until late August where the children needed to begin school early September (I still can’t wrap my brain around a September to June school year) and, and, and… there was always a new challenge. It seems to be only now, two years since first arriving, that life seems to have settled and what’s more, I’ve found my Inkee Fiddlings!

Not that losing my mojo had stopped me from not only setting up a Studio, but stocking it also! As you can see it’s a very long room, long enough to sit two folding tables end to end. In fact there are four tables in there, one for each of us although Master Eleven would disagree. Like my hips, my creativity has a tendency to spread!

Inkee Fiddlings Studio

With my restocking what easier and better way to do it then by rejoining Stampin’ Up! last year. And with a new and improved Idea Book & Catalog soon to be released and a couple of workshops under my belt, I’ve rediscovered my love of creating so… Joanne’s Inkee Fiddlings is back!

Given it’s has been a long time between fiddlings I certainly won’t be offended if you no longer wish to receive these posts. Simply send an email to with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject header and your name shall be removed.

Oh, and have yourself an...
Inkee Fiddling Day!
