Don't know what happened there girls.....But I didn't post the Frankfurt Market thingy !!! Although I'm sure it's a wonderful place to go.....So sorry about that, must be a glitch in the machine.....or someone's HACKING....shame on you - I'm sure there's better things to hack than our little Blog !!!
Whilst I'm here, I may as well give you a few words - seeing as I don't get on here much.
At 45 I'm really feeling my age after doing two weekend shows on the trot. Alley Pally - Simply blinding - as always a fantastic show - I hope Polly and Jayne's feet have come back to their normal size and no longer resemble blown up Marigold Gloves !!! Artisan - I wouldn't call it blinding but it was lovely, we really had a giggle and I met some gorgeous peeps, including the most talented girlie by the name of LISA OLSON, she makes the most STUNNING felt bags - yes girlies I said FELT BAGS with gorgeous FELT FLOWERS. I do believe she takes orders AND she's LOVELY - here's her blog -
and the Craft Bug girls were great - but the funniest one there was one of the Glitter Girls (sorry didn't get here name) just had some great banter with her - she was hilarious !!!
We stayed in Warwick - what a beautiful place, had a miniature version of Maggie Thatcher as our landlady and had some great meals out - all in all a good weekend.
The Sugar and Spice stamps sold really well - Yay!!! Sorry still haven't got the new ones on the website - think I'm going to have to order more !!!. I've got to get me head down and design an all day card class - I know, I know I hear you!!! But before that takes place we've got the FREE MAKE AND TAKE on 31st October, don't forget to join us and have some fun!!! See you there.
Hope you're enjoying all the design ideas on the blog, I think you'll agree the girls are doing a GRAND job !!!
Take care

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…
