AND THE JOURNEY BEGINS...

Well here we are safe and sound in the beautiful State of Wisconsin, we're having a little vacation, as they say here in the States before we descend on CHA.
we flew into Chicago then followed Jerry upto his beautiful home in Lake Geneva, where we were greeted by his gorgeous wife Sue...these guys are just the best !!!
After a quick freshen up they took us down to their boat, where we drove across the lake to Gordy's restaurant... Now I know it's usually at this point that I share with you the picture of the sumptuous 1/2lb burger I had...BUT....Well basically I was so hungry I ate it, then remembered I hadnt taken a photo...whoops.
But I did get a few shots on and off the boat of Sue and Ricky....by the way the blurry brightness you see is called THE SUN !!!
When we arrived at Jerry and Sues we were greeted with a rather large box that had been sent over from the gorgeous Donna Valdez who lives in California, I opened it with excitement as I had no idea what was in there, imagine my surprise when I saw not 1 BUT 4 mahoosive tubs of THE most delicious popcorn you'll ever come across, it's loaded with nuts and it's just so delicious. Thank you Donna... You ROCK !!!
We're off out on trips all day tomorrow, so I'll keep you posted.
As usual this app is a nightmare and it won't let me post photos in any particular order :( :( . But I'm sure you can work out which one is the Poppycock!!!

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

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


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

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…
