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.

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
