Do you ever wish you had a power that could make time stand still??? I do!!! The days are whizzing by so quickly, things have been so busy and I just can't fit it all in!!! But fit it in I must...we have Ally Pally approaching FAST and we've been packing boxes like there's no tomorrow, Oh I do miss Maggie, she worked like a military operation, I on the other hand am so useless at being organised. We've been making up samples for the show, to get you all inspired, along with designing the MAY CLASSES, I've even designed a couple more stamp sets, just in time for the show, Yay!!! Then to top it all, Myself, Polly and Nina are doing an NVQ each - yeah, THANKS SARA!!!! Myself and Polly had our tests on Friday - if you're a young person reading this - listen to me when I say STUDY HARD AT SCHOOL, as when you take a test at the age of 45 you'll be glad you did!!! actually the results were pretty good, but I did think why am I putting myself through this??? but we did have a giggle at our own incompetence, I mean tell me, when am I really going to need to know that the diagnotsic ratio of sheet metal is 0.000012, or something like that!!!! See I can't even remember!!!
Poor Nina had a house of ILLNESS last week and now she's got it, but she worked through yesterday, like a trooper, much to the pleasure of her ladies on the beginners course. Get well soon.
Polly's got her Family Tree Layout Class this morning, Enjoy it ladies!!! as this is the third time we've done this class now and we've got so many more NEW DESIGNS to share with you, that I doubt it'll be repeated again.
Adrienne, fabi and Rachel went to a retreat this weekend, hope you had a GREAT time girls and your back held out Adrienne.

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…
