Yeah..... I found my blog, gosh I'm so stupid to have lost it in the first place.... but hey ho, that just about sums me up!!!

Anyway, here I am and I can't quite believe it's nearly 2008, so what's been happening in the last 6 months??? Well I've been to Vegas twice, once for business and once for our friends wedding, which was lovely, i've got to say, it was a rather short 7 minutes, but really adorable!! and she looked absolutely gorgeous!!!! My favourite sight there was a drive through wedding chapel that had on the side "say i do and drive on through" Ricky wanted to know if you got fries and a shake at the end ?

Had a little flutter and a few little wins and on the last night won $345.00 on craps. just when i thought I'd had enough of Vegas (4 times in two years) I now need to go back and play some more craps.

Tyson survived the rat poison ordeal and he's just getting bigger and bigger, in fact a guy asked me in the park the other day if he had rottweiler in him as he has a large head, I told him no and reminded him that his head wasn't so small !!!Then walked off rather quickly.

Our 17 year old son Jamie passed his driving test first time and has now got himself a little car, basically, it just gives me something else to worry about.

The shop's still taking up all my time (no change there) and we've now got the wonderful nina on board running some fantastic classes. I seem to have lost my mojo lately, don't worry I'll find it.

I got accepted to be on the design team for Fidgeon's Crafts, which, I've got to say

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
