GETTING ORGANISED....

This month for Fantastic Ribbons we were asked to do something re: Christmas Home Decor.....and....well...OK this may not be exactly home decor, but it is decorative and in my home...so I thought it counts !!!


Every Christmas I promise myself I'm going to get organised, but with a hefty work load and my brain just not what it used to be, I'm finding myself writing things down more - So, what could be nicer than jotting down all my christmas notes, recipes and tips in this gorgeous little note pad and furthermore with all those yummy ribbons hanging off of it, I'm going to find it easily, The photo's not brill (sorry Kirsty) but if you look closely you can see that I've taken a length of ribbon and about a third up folded it back on itself to make a loop, this gives it a nice bit of dimension, layer each piece up and there you have it....Now to fill in my first page.

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…
