As promised, here's the piccy of our lovely UPS guy making our 21 box delivery.

Oh, he so deserved a cup of tea after dropping of that many boxes and so he got one!!
All our new yummies have gone down so well, we've had over 100 new paper lines, some great new books, the Tim Holtz ones are just Brill, the embellies are great, the buttons are just so round and shiney!! the bling is so sparkly and the NEW FISKARS PUNCHES are flying out, no surprise as they are blimmin' gorgeous.
On Sunday we had our usual monthly BINGO CROP and MICHELLE (a newbie) joined us, and what did she bring with her....only home baked CUPCAKES!!!! Thank you Michelle!!!

Talking of cakes, Helen celebrated her BIRTHDAY with us on Sunday.....So what did we do??? we got her a GIANT FRENCH FANCY of course!!!

Want to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Fabbi and Adrienne, whom without their help on Saturday we wouldn't have got any of the new stock out, Nina and myself thought we could manage, but we were so busy in the shop we realised we couldn't do it all, so thanks girls, but don't feel sorry for them - giving up their saturday morning, they did after all get first pickings of all the new yummies. On Fabbi's side I thought it was another pile of papers to go on display and then realised that it was her pile that she was taking home.! also mum and Polly worked tirelessly on Friday pricing up, so all in all THANKS EVERYONE xxx
Oh yes, just in case you thought you'd got away with it JUNE, yes you JUNE, I'm going to nag you on here, now I know you read it every day....Don't just label your alcohol inks.....USE them!!! and your Glimmer Mist and ALL the other STASH you get and DON'T use, I'll be checking on you!!!!.


Hello Marion, not been here before. I visited your store on Sunday it was fabulous. Will definitely be returning. Lovely papers and other goodies, but i had hubby with me so had to be self controlled this time (never easy). Was thrilled to find one of the new fiskars apron lace border punches! hopefully will be returning this weekend, weather permitting. Those cup cakes look fabulous! have a good week, hugs Linda x

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 ....

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…
