HI HO !!!

It's off to Brum we go....
at that point you need to be whistling like the seven dwarfs !!!
Yep, on Saturday we're off to Birmingham for the UK trade show. Now I know it's not quiet LA, but it'll be a lot cheaper !!!
Saturday afternoon we're doing a class with the lovely Tim Holtz (and yes he is a really lovely guy) then Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, we're buying, meeting lovely people, buying, meeting more lovely people, crafting, buying a bit more and then hey ho, while we're there we may as well meet up with more lovely people, it's probably going to be one of the busiest shows we've ever done, we have so many "meet ups" it's a little bit crazy.....
I'm back in the shop on wednesday where I'll be teaching Nina's class, then doing the last minute packing as on Thursday morning I'm off to the Make It show in Farnborough until Sunday, I haven't done this one since 2008, so I'm really looking forward to that AND praying that the weather will be kind and that there'll be no WIND!!! For those of you that remember, you'll know what I'm talking about !!
So, things are a wee bit hectic round here, must remember to pack the camera and I'll try and get some piccis posted for you.

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!!

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…
