It's All GO GO GO

Had a really busy weekend, getting together the kits for the upcoming classes, Paula joined us today and worked like crazy getting together her classes.

Fabianna was also in with Adrienne, a lot of girlie giggling going on and Fabbi supplied us with sandwiches, fruit and cakes, what can I say, BELISSIMO !!

Fabbi was putting the finishing touches to her all day class on 31st August "FABBI'S FLIP, FLAP AND NO FLOP" album, she also teaches you how to make another mini album out of your leftover chipboard from the first one, WOW, does it get any better !!!

Nina's off to that crazy hippie festival, what's it called ??? oh yes Glastonbury (I just had to ask ricky) God I'm sooo old. We've all got our fingers crossed that the weather is good for you, have a FANTASTIC time and don't FORGET your SHEWEE !!!!

Maggie's back from Florida, looking rather tanned and very healthy and she bought me back my Lucky Charms, if you haven't tried them you'll have to get some, as I won't share. They are just the best, by the way it's a breakfast cereal that's loaded with sugary marshmallow bits, ok I'm dribbling now so I'm off to have a bowl.

Hope you all had a great weekend.

Check out my Slide Show!

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY

Been really BUSY with PAULA today working on the new TECHNIQUES CLASS, actually what I should have said there was, PAULA's been really busy today working on the TECHNIQUES class and WOW!!! it's looking fantastic.


I'm getting really excited about all the new classes, it's given me a bit of a headache as there is SOOOO many of them, but HEY! that's what you asked for and we listened.


Also getting excited about going out to CHA again, I've never been to the summer one I usually go to the winter one and Memory Trends in Vegas, Hope to be reporting back on all the lovely goodies.


Had a great day out on Monday with Nina and Paula, we spent the day with Lance Anderson from Rusty Pickle and came back with a couple of great mini books.
They were really paying attention.
Oh! and the food was delicious, even though I didn't get the cheesecake !!!

LOVELY DAY

Had a lovely day off today, thanks mum !!!

went to Lakeside with Adrienne and have decided what to wear for the PYJAMA CROP on the 12th, decided that I won't look good in regular PJ's have gone for the FUNNY/DOWNRIGHT ridiculus version.

For those of you attending DON'T LAUGH !!! well, OK maybe you won't be able to help yourself, But know this.... it's not my real nightime attire, honest.

For those of you not attending, don't worry I'm sure there will be pictures posted on here.

Had rather a lot of garlic at lunch time, CAFE ROUGE is wonderful and I recommend the Limon Presse, how refreshing.

Back to the grind tomorrow, well actually yes it's hardwork but not really a grind.

Speak soon

Sneaky~Peek!


This class is running on the 20th of July in the morning, you can make a whole day of it though... and join our jacobs ladder class in the afternoon too! Thats if your hubbie won't go absoultely mental about the amount of time you spend with paper and adhesive ;)

This sneaky~peek of a class will be displayed in the shop real, real soon! It's a LO that uses lots of techniques, it involves alot of sewing which is pretty big right now and i'm officially reviving sponge painting :) You will need two/three/four small piccies which have people/pets you love who live or come to your home. These will be semi hiddem behind windows; so no best pics please! It works well with pre-digital prints and digital pics that aren't tooooooo close up. These can either be black and white or colour, I have used a mixture. We will be using the new fancy pants papers which are a little grunge but suit this whimsical LO.
See you all there!

WOW !! what a few months it's been

Well the last time I blogged was in February and sooooo much has happened since then.


The sad news was I had to say goodbye to Jane, she'd been with me for the last 4 years, but she's making a go of her own business, she makes the most beautiful mini albums, cards and home decor all from papercrafting, she needs to blog, she truly is inspirational. We all wish her every success.

The good news is Paula (Pollyscraps) has come to join our little team and WOW !! has she got some great classes lined up for you in the coming months.

Not forgetting Nina (ladybugnina), she's going to be sharing lots of yummy ideas in her classes with you.


Nina, Paula and myself have been getting together the lastest class schedule (due out very soon) and well, personally I think you're going to be rather spoilt for choice, so what the heck treat yourself to all of them, you do deserve it after all. I consider myself sooo lucky to have such great girlies working here, not forgetting my mum, who makes great tea and of course Maggie who keeps me so organised, although she's away in Florida at the mo and she'll go mad when she gets back !!!! It's got so messy in here.

I've just launched another two sets of SUGAR AND SPICE clear stamps, let me know what you think.






We've also got together a great kit for july here's a few sneaky pics.......




You'll be hearing a lot more from us now as Nina, Paula and me are going to be adding little snippets often.
