JUST IN THE NICK OF TIME

I think in the last couple of days I've lost about 10lbs worrying about the deliveries not turning up for Ally Pally.........and then.............they arrived all on the same day..... so I celebrated and ate lots of choccy biscuits and promptly gained about 12lbs.
I really was getting stressed (ask the girls) we ALL put soooo much effort into these shows.
So if you're up there come and say HI and we hope you LOVE all the gorgeous NEW YUMMIES. If your not able to go to Ally Pally just pop down to the shop as we've kept some of the most stunning NEW PRODUCTS back for you guys.
We've made some fantastic samples and are offering some brilliant kits, don't worry they'll be back in the shop on TUESDAY.
I'm really looking forward to the MAKE A WISH CROP on Saturday 4th October (tickets are still available).
Then my card classes start the following week......
Oh boy am I looking forward to my hols in November !!!! I've just found out that the house we're staying in has internet access to I may just have to take my trusty LAPTOP and bore you all with piccy's from the SUNSHINE STATE, don't worry I won't be in a bikini.
Right I'm getting an early night as we've got a manic weekend ahead and lots of chatting to do, one of the lovely things with the shows is all meeting up, it'll be great to see Bev (Banana Frog) Vikki (Capture the Magic) Hah!! I spelt your name right !!! Amanda (Your Touch of Craft) and Sue and Julie (Craftwork Cards), in fact we're going out on the Saturday night with Vikki and her girls for an Italian, I have asked Vikki to be on her best behaviour as we do have a REPUTATION to think about !!!!!!
Have a great weekend everyone.

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

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


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

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…
