Today we went to Milwaukee. It's a really lovely city, quite small as far as cities go and very clean :) :) it was the weekend they were celebrating Bastille Day and a large area was closed off for a market and various entertainment. I stood and listened to this jazz singer, her voice was absolutely amazing, you know the type that gives you goose bumps !! Anyhoo's we trotted around the market and brought a few wares :) then had lunch .... I know it's the dairy State but oh boy the have soooooo much cheese on everything.
We then moved on to the Harley Davidson Museum and to be honest I'm not really into bikes, but WOW what a fab place it was really interesting, the earliest bike dated back to 1903, not quite like the ones they have today !!
Sorry to say to you guys, but the weather is rather gorgeous here, so we went and sat by the harbour and just relaxed having drinks and chatting the day away. Dinner was in a great little restaurant called Charlie 'O' s really FAB. I will smack my hand as I keep forgetting to take food pics . Tut tut !!!
On Friday I'm doing the filming for Tear Mender, that should be a giggle.
Anyhoo's we've purchased a cribbage board for Jerry and Sue and now need to teach them the game. Love it albeit a bit rusty!!
Until next time

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 ....

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…
