A DAY FOR SHOPPING

Well when I looked out of the window it looked a bit overcast and drizzly, so I convinced Ricky that we REALLY should go SHOPPING.


So off we went to Gurnee Mills, THANKS (VICKY, CAPTURE THE MAGIC) got some bits, bobs and bargains there, oh and had some JAMBA JUICE, also recommnded by Vicky.


From there we went to Michaels ( a bit like Hobby Craft) a SUPER TARGET and........ a HOBBY LOBBY. in all the years I've been coming to the US and all the States I've visited, approx 14 I've never found a HOBBY LOBBY, so I was well chuffed. again, thanks Vicky.
So we park the car and get a photo (see below) I have to hold myself back from running for two reasons really, one this body was not designed to run and two I needed to keep a bit of dignity if only for Ricky's sake. Get to the door and..... NO it wasn't closed, I know of you were thinking that ! BUT we only had 30 minutes before it did close !!!!! Managed to get a book for MAGGIE and not much else really, but HEY HO at least I've been now.




Weather looks really nice today so we're driving to Lake Michigan and we'll see where we end up from there.
I'll keep you posted........

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
