ANOTHER MONDAY SHOP FEST.....

Yes it's that time of the month that I get together with my friend and shopping confidant Lyn. This time we hit Bluewater and what a lovely day we had, obviously it included purchasing pretty things and eating tasty things.
As usual the tasty things included GARLIC BREAD and the pretty things included SHOES..and with a HEEL....ooh get me! After treking around for 6 hours and picking out bits and pieces our last stop was M & S....
In my search for a particular item of clothing I went upto a lady and asked her if this was the only floor that womenswear was on, she looked at me quizically and said "Uh" I repeated the question and she replied "toilets ? over there" So I asked the question one more time, saying it very slowly, and this time she understood me and replied "Yes, only this floor", "Thank -you" I replied, to which she replied "I don't work here, but your welcome". After being mortified, we couldn't stop laughing to the extent that we were getting some really funny looks. Hey Ho, that sort of sums up our days out.
This weeks going to be a busy one, getting things sorted for the BANANA FROG DAY. We've also decided to do a FREE MAKE AND TAKE DAY on SATURDAY 27th JUNE, I'll be sending a newsletter out about it so if your registered check your inbox.

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

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


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

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…
