Seriously, it's 6 months away.
Every year I panic around the 23rd December, and it's not like it just creeps up on us with a surprise date, it's the SAME date every year!!!
So I'm pleased to announce that this year "we" can get organised well in advance, you see, on Tuesday 28th June, myself and the lovely Wendie Rhodes are on QVC at, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, and 10pm, with..... yep you guessed it...... Christmas Stash, and some rather yummy christmas stash at that !!!
I haven't just made cards to show you, this time I'm showing great little gift ideas, so if you're one of those super women that organise school craft fairs or the likes of, then you'll want to see these shows and get lots of inspiration, I would like to point out that I hold no responsibility for anything that may fall into your shopping basket, by accident, of course !!!
We are holding a FREE DEMO DAY on Sunday 26th June 10am - 4pm, myself and Chilli Barb, will be "Wowing" you with great techniques using Embossing powders and well, what Barb can't do with a Promarker is nobodies business... but she will share her secrets with you !!!
The Craftwork Cards Sweet Meadow arrived last week, but I'm not sure it's going to last another week.... It's GORGEOUS !!!
The Classes are filling up fast... Thank you !!!
We've had some amazing new papers in.... BO BUNNY... you've done us proud !!!
The new Doodlebug Albums are simply STUNNING !!!
And the TILDA papers and embellies are rather LUSH !!
Anyhoo's must go and do more prepping. Hope to see you Sunday

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.
