I've been a very very very bad blogger.
I've never neglected it so much, I'm sorry, but since January I honestly haven't stopped, I've been to the States twice, teaching with the wonderful WOW Embossing Powders along with teaching at the NEC twice for them, then I've had Ally Pally, back there in September with the girls :) :) loads of QVC :) :) although I can rest from that now as I had my last show on the 29th April, and what a fab show it was :) :) and now it's all about the SUGAR AND SPICE RETREAT....oh boy, myself, Nina and Paula are bringing you an amazing weekend of FUN and's come round so quick and there's so many of you, here's a little sneak....of just ONE of the projects you'll be doing

I've kept myself going with a bit of sustenance ...and of course shared with Nina and there's a bar waiting for Paula, as long as she's not too brown after her stint in Spain :)

Alongside helping with all the prepping for the retreat, Nina and Barb have been doing some fabulous classes, along with this one coming up on the 22nd June...Nina's flag book..... Bookings now being taken :) :)

Barb's working on a fabulous Craftwork Cards kit for you watch this space for those details..
We've had some fabbi deliveries in the shop this past many NEW papers...

Lots of NEW flowers...

Plus lots more that we haven't even got out on the shelves yet !!!!
Then to finish my very stressful week off....I received my copy of the USA Papercrafts mag with one of my projects in proud AND honoured !!!

It shows a jewellery box I made and adorned it with 'buttons' using the moulds and WOW Embossing Powders, in particular the fabulous Pearl it :) :)
Talking of moulds, we have a delivery (fingers crossed) of brand NEW moulds coming in on Tuesday.....#exciting. And just in time for our Retreat :) :)
Right I must stop blogging and get on with prepping for the Retreat...
Enjoy this gorgeous sunny day everyone

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
