Well we survived Birmingham or rather Birmingham survived US!!!

Now, was it a good thing or a bad thing that I had Nina and Polly with me??? the answer to that is quite was GOOD for you and BAD for me!!!! WHY, I hear you cry.... well, Good for you because they dragged me out of my comfort zone, and let's say ENCOURAGED me to buy different stash, that I know you're gonna love, but may I just add it's NOT all PINK!!!! UURRGHHH!!! and if that wasn't bad enough for me, it was also really BAD for me as I spent a fortune!!! Not forgetting what's on it's way from CHA!!!! oh well, hey ho and all that!!! You guys have got some rather gorgeous yumminess to look forward to.
I want to say THANK YOU to the girls for a GREAT time, we did have a giggle, that was helped along when Polly got in the shower - we heard a bang followed by fits of laughter, well we thought it was laughter, it could have been tears....but no, we checked, it was laughter. It turned out she decided to park her bottom on the floor of the bathroom for a while!!! Don't worry I don't think she bruised.
We took loads of stash with us each so that we could have a PLAY when we got there and a bit of chill out time, but by the time we stopped chatting and actually got our bits out we were pretty much too tired to do any, so it all got packed away neatly ready for the return journey.

I couldn't resist showing you these, although Polly is probably going to KILL me now, but we think she looks so cute playing peek-a-boo!!

Now you probably want to know what's coming......well, there's (big gasp of breath) Daisy Bucket, Fancy Pants, Tattered Angels, Basic Grey, Bazzill, Autumn Leaves, Cosmo Cricket, K & Co, American Crafts, Martha Stewart, Ranger, Personal Impressions NEW clear stamps, oh and while I'm on that subject I will give myself a little mention (or the girls will have a go at me) I've been very honoured that Personal Impressions have taken on some of MY stamp designs and are now distributing them Nationwide, YAY!!!!
We've also got lots of BITS on their way to make yummy embellishments out of, lots of you know I love finding quirky little bits and doing different things with them, and this time is no exception.
Now all the trade shows are over I PROMISE I will get back into designing some new classes, I must just get this weekend out the way...we're having a SALE you know!!! and then I'll be in the swing of things, I can't wait to play with all the new stuff, I've got so many things whizzing around my head.
If any of you are off to the Make It Show this weekend, be sure to stop by Amanda's stand, Your Touch of Craft and say HI!!! Good luck Amanda, have a great one!!!
And I just want to finish off with MUM YOU'RE A STAR, a bliming BIG ONE!!!!

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
