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

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
