Well, I finally went back to work on Tuesday, although it has felt like I never even left, oh that's maybe because I didn't !!!!!
THANK YOU for all the lovely comments we've had these last couple of days, it's made all the HARD WORK worthwhile, and boy it was hard work!!!
I've been updating the website (adding more goodies), ordering in more goodies (don't tell Ricky, I promised "I wouldn't buy another thing") I do believe my fingers were crossed behind my back at the time! and DESIGNING a new cardmaking class, yes I've finally got my finger out, I was up at 5 this morning and sketched out some designs and so far so good, it's going to be all about CIRCLES.... hey Maggie if you're reading this I may even throw in a SQUARE RADIUS. LOL!!!
Nina's got some fantastic classes out, she's left me and Polly standing...... we'll have to hang our heads in shame.
I've now found my lead for the camera so I'll try and get some piccy's on here tomorrow.
For those of you that have taken part in the poll so far, THANK YOU. If there's other polls you'd be interested in taking part in let me know.

I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx

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…
