Hi all
Well we made it, after a rather noisy (screaming kids) and smelly (pooey kids) flight we got here and WOW how lovely is this house

We've stayed in a few houses in Florida and this is by far the best, it's absolutely amazing and soooo large I WANT ONE !!!!! We got a tip off by Amanda (the lucky girl who's mum and dad own this) to grab the downstairs bedroom, there's 5 in total, and well, the bed is soooooo big I haven't seen Ricky at night for three nights now!!! The whole place is stunningly furnished the kitchen is ginormous and there's absolutely everything that you could need. I also want a top loader washing machine and a much bigger kitchen with central island, that's not tooooo much to ask, is it? I would certainly recommend this house, it's also really conveniently located for all the attractions just contact amanda on and treat yourself.
We went to Universal Islands of Adventure on Friday and I got coerced into going on the Incredible Hulk ride. Now I should have remembered what it was like last time, and it hasn't changed, it's still blimming SCARY!!!!, I must have been a lemming in a past life!
The sun was glorious the temp was 84 degrees so we went on the water rides and there are warnings that you'll get wet and we were like yay that don't matter it'll probably just be a little bit, well after the first ride "Dudley Doo-Right's RipSaw Falls" WE WERE SOAKED!!! completely, drowned rats probably looked better than us as they don't wear mascara!!! So then we went on the Popeye one (can't remember the name) and this completely removed any traces that were left of our mascara, I must stress the boys were not wearing any!! So off we get soaked to the skin (by the way I won the Miss Wet T Shirt contest!!) and the SUN WENT in, hey ho that's Florida for you. Off shopping today, more adventures in a couple of days.

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....

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…
