Hi All
Well I'm back in the land of the living, just about anyway!!
I've been going over the yummies that I just HAD to buy for you.
We've got Jilli Bean Soup and Bella Blvd on their way, they are two great new companies for us, both completely different and both absolutely gorgeous. Scrap Within Reach had two new lines, so they are on their way, it's lovely to see such a small independant company growing. Some great new books, and BUTTONS Oh my!! we've got some yummy buttons on their way, and bling ribbon slides and ribbons and papers and.... oh jet lags kicking back in, you'll have to be as surprised as me when it all arrives at the end of Feb.
Perfect timing really, as we have our 20% off SALE on the weekend of 21st and 22nd Feb, so let's make room for all the new lovelies.
BIG THANKS to the girls for keeping the shop running tickety boo while i was gone and Mum, a great BIG HUG & KISS, you're a star!!!!

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…
