There we were about to start our work day when in comes Chris (Life as Art) and asks us if we've been to the new soft play area?? obviously we hadn't .... so off we trotted through the farm and into the NEW SOFT PLAY AREA. We were greeted by an array of Blue, Yellow and Red giant SLIDES, some with mats, some with death drops and some going into a pool of BALLS!!! The mat one was fine, I was worried that I wasn't going to fit into the slide, then breathed a sigh of relief when I realised they had built it big enough for me, Yay!. So off we slide and start to feel like a young child again, Nina's getting excited and wants to go up to the BIG ONE, she bottles it a bit, and I don't blame her at all, I bottled it a LOT, it was just a sheer drop - if you don't believe me you'll have to have a go yourself!! But Nina DID pluck up the courage and off she went, yay for her, I wasn't doing that one - I'm not that silly!!
I did venture onto the BLUE one and landed unceremoniously into the balls, only to find that I couldn't get out, in the end the chivalrous DAN (Terra-Fusion) came to my rescue, I can't show a picture of me as it is what's classed as X RATED!!! Let's just say Vest Top, big boobs and ball pools do not go together. But I did get this great one of NINA.....Can you spot her??

After all that exercise, don't forget there was the walk back to the shop..we're getting hungry and like a fairy god-mother in walks MOMMA MUFF, like a vision in white she hands over a box to Nina and we squeal with delight when we see that she's made us LEMON MERINGUE MUFFINS no less!!

Now I have been known to have sampled a few Muffins in my time, BUT OH BOY these have got to be THE BEST (Actually, that sounds wrong, very wrong)!!! Needless to say they really didn't last that long, THANK YOU BEV.
Whilst we're on the subject of edible things - I thought I'd show all you young mums that even when your children are 19 and 16 they still love to tuck into an Easter Egg...Mmmm

But at that age you can't make them stop eating OR share!!!

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
