Helen and Mark "popped" in to see us at the shop on Tuesday and although they may have wished they hadn't......I'm so glad they did. Let the organisation begin!!!! Helen's like a whirling dervish, she get things done at super speed and Mark and Ricky completely took apart 5, yes 5, paper stands and re-assembled them, this time the right way round, the instructions must have been upside down last time. Unsurprisingly Helen left with a headache, so i hope you're better and thank you, thank you, thank you xxxx
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL, whilst there's lots of doom and gloom around let's all think positive and maybe just maybe good things will start to happen, hey they can't get any worse!!!
What is it with 15 year olds that think they can hold their drink???? if it's not bad enough that they are profusely sick, they are profusely sick on your best friends lovely CREAM carpet!!! So I've been up most of the night checking on him and making sure he doesn't sleep on his back....Oh the joys of motherhood.
Back into the shop today doing more finishing touches. I felt like crying when Adrienne walked in and said it didn't look any different and I think Ricky was going to shoot her with his nail gun, but actually it's a compliment, we hadn't set out for it to look really different, we have our own signature look that we're really proud of, but we have achieved more room and a better set out classroom, which was our main aim, don't worry Adrienne's in helping today and boy am I going to make her work hard LOL!!!

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
