Christmas notes......

Well I have seen the Coke advert and heard several song which have jingle bells in, so it must be that time of year - CHRISTMAS!
Now for all those people who know me will know that when the tough gets going, the tough goes on a list in a note book! I couldn't live without one. So I had to make this............

Now making your own note book might seem a bit long winded especially as you can go and buy one but this way you can be in control of how big it is, how many pages you put in it and the most importantly, what it looks like! The Bind it all is perfect for making note books but if you don't have one then book rings or ribbons would do the job just as well and I felt the stitching gave it a homely rustic feel.

The good ole Sugar and Spice Alphabet stamps come up trumps again for giving a neat and tidy look when stamping on my tabs and who could resist scribble word but with a Christmas touch? Fabby!!

So now I have shared it with you I can get writing my lists, my wish lists that is ;)

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…
