Today I taught for the first time in what seemed like absolutely ages.
We made this lovely Mini Tag Album, full of summer colours and just absolutely gorgeous, it was perfect as the sun was shining and the music was playing from the live bands on the green at the front of the shop, we had a real giggle in the class, obviously it wasn't me that was doing all the talking, that would be Janet and Sara, I just did a LOT of laughing, at the end of the class we all felt like we'd had a face lift - ha, who needs Botox !!! Nina worked like a looney this afternoon, where did all those people come from ?? well done hun!!!After having such a great day today, I'm really looking forward to the rest of the weekend, I hope the woman who was still singing at 6 o'clock this evening over there is back again tomorrow, she was really good!!
I've got a really BUSY week ahead, Tuesday we take delivery of the new stuff from the States, Oh boy I don't know if I can wait that long, then we have a mini craft fair that we are doing locally, then I have an all dayer teaching 12 on Sunday, the only problem there is, that I'll be dead on my feet, as by then I'll have worked 13 days on the trot - honestly you'd think I'd be a size 8 by now !!! I'll do my best to stay awake ladies, I may just hand out class notes. :)
Don't know if I mentioned, but there's a music festival on all weekend, inc. Monday, at Barleylands, so if you fancy chillin' out and just kickin' back pop on over and just relax.
Have a great weekend EVERYONE

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
