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!!!!

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 ....
Enjoy xxxx


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…
