DAY 2 OF THE SHOW

Have you seen the NEW Cricut ?? Here it is ...



Yes it's large, but very stylish looking... What does it do? It draws AND cuts it's a bit like PS meet Cricut... Seriously it's has carts that have designs on them that you can work in layers and change the colours and then cut them out.... COOL!!
Heidi grace may be off having another little baby but she still graced us with her yumminess, here's one of her cute little albums, we should be getting them around September.



Dyan was there in all her artistic glory doing her "thang" this time she was showing the NEW Perfect Pearls Mists... Rather yummy if I may say so !!



Rick likes meeting with Dyan as she's a fellow Leeds united supporter, so they have a little footie chat !!! If you're up Harrogate way pop in and see her, her work is so inspiring it's makes you want to grab your inks and paints ect and get dirty !!!
We've got a great little company coming to Sugar and Spice along with loads of new yumminess should be around september.
Anyhoo's it's 3 in the morning so must get some sleep to do the last walk of the show, although not before we pop into Elmhurst and grab a cupcake from "Heavenly Cupcakes" with that in mind I'll close my eyes now and dream of cupcakes .... Mmmmmm. Night night

OUR VIEW FOR TODAY

Here we are sitting on the south shores of Lake Michigan looking on to the city. It's so peaceful here and quite deserted.... BUT I've got to say the water is FREEZING!!! Lake Geneva it's not !!!



My gorjus hubby drove me all over the place yesterday for some retail therapy. He's soooo sweet.
So here's one for the boys. Rick was rather impressed with our rims....




Oh well must lay down and chill now.

DIED AND WENT TO HEAVEN

Seriously, that's what happened this weekend.
When a friend of mine knew we were going to Chicago she immediately got onto a friend of hers who lives in Chicago and said we were coming out and that was that! They took us into their arms and gave us the BEST weekend EVER.
They took us to their home at lake geneva in Wisconsin and all I can say there is WOW!!!! what a place. We shared their weekend exactly as they do. On the Saturday they took us to a restaurant on the lake via their boat ( very swish AND fast it was too ) and then we cruised around the east side of the lake. Bear in mind their lakes aren't like ours, you could walk all the way round it if you fancy a 26 mile hike!!! I'll take the boat thanks !! We then gatecrashed on some friends of theirs, they were all so friendly!!
Next day we went into lake geneva town, the shops are all little boutiques very nice and very expensive!! The we went bake to the lake front armed with snacks and drinks and after a dip in the lake took the boat out again this time cruising the west side, it's hard to explain the size of the houses on the lakefront, suffice it to say they were MASSIVE and I mean MASSIVE. After a bit of relaxing on the lakefront ( as if the boat wasn't relaxing enough ) !! We then went back to the house to prepare dinner ( fresh corn picked that morning, marinated chicken, key lime pie) you get the picture!! For us and their friends and, well as they would say we had a blast !!! Then jerry bought us back to Chicago this morning (sheds a tear) BUT .... this guy manufactures his own product and has given me some to play with, woo hoo, I'll share it with you when I get back.
Anyway onwards and upwards, we're off to lake Michigan for a bit of sunshine now. Catch you later.

START AS WE MEAN TO GO ON ???

After an 8.5 hour flight, which I've got to say "flew" by ( pardon the pun) !!! We landed in Chicago, greeted by over 90 degree heat. After a quick trip to Walmart (always a must) we stopped off at Potbelly's - no we'd never heard of it either !! But it done THE MOST delicious salads.... So salad it was. Kerry you'd be proud of me!!



Now I can't promise it's going to stay this way after all I need lots of energy to walk round CHA !! at least it was a good start!

Hope the weathers being kind to you all there.

I understand the delivery from the states hasn't arrived..... Don't worry I have it all in hand this end. There was a rather large problem with customs, probably cause I ordered too much lol !!! But thanks to technology I'm sorting it out even though I'm thousands of miles away. So cool

HERES WHAT WE MADE TODAY

Well one of the projects anyway.

This was one of our cotton bags, masked off with the Heidi swapp mask and then stamped with an assortment of flowers and coloured in with the gorgeous Blingz. Simple but effective !!!!!
As modelled by Paula Sparling, thank you Paula !!!
