All this month Nina's been doing her book of the month class on a bucket list.... and it got me thinking :) :)
I've never been to Harrods... so after my show on Tuesday I got whisked off by the lovely Kirsty Wiseman and Rubina Latif to Knightsbridge and we decended on Harrods, first off we went in the Laduree's entrance....OMG... what an amazing place, they sell the most expensive macaroons, but it was worth it (thanks Kirsty) just to take in the decor. WOW !!! It was requested that no photos were to be taken, obviously I respected that, but we did get a couple of snapshots outside...

The inside of Harrods was rather lush... I had to go in the Christmas Shop... well it's a must isn't it !!!! and it was there that I bought my lovely mum a pressie (she loves crimbo) !!!

And so do these girls.... While I was there I met a guy (shhhh ... don't tell Rick)
He was a bit stiff though !!!
Then we came back down to the ground floor and found LOLA'S CUPCAKES ....
They did allow us to take picci's.... Therefore we felt completely obliged to buy some and oh boy they were YUMMY... expensive but YUMMY !! GO LOLA !!!!!
On the way back to the car, I fell in love with the houses... just look at all these trees... so neat.
One of the houses was being refurbed, so we asked the builders if we could have a look (well if you don't ask you don't get) as I poked my head in I mentioned that I thought the lounge was a bit on the small side, for a house that big, it was only about 22 x 11, then they pointed out that it was actually the entrance hall LOL !!!
On that note we got back in the car and went back to Q Towers where I shot a video showing you how to make a really quick simple layout, all in the run up to the BRAND NEW CREATIVE KEEPSAKES
show on Tuesday 25th October at 2pm.... I can't wait, I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. Hope you can join me. Keep checking out the QVC blog to see when it's been uploaded.
Anyhoo's must get on with some work, enjoy your week

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…
