Unlike the last blog post, this one's ALL happy :) :)
I'm pleased to announce that the tea rooms at the Craft Village have been taken over by the wonderful Nicole.
It's now called La Bottega Village Cafe and Deli and oh boy she's already made SUCH a difference I. Just 4 days :) :)
You may wonder why I'm excited about this, well basically, we have a lot of ladies stay all day for classes and part of their day is to enjoy a nice lunch.....and now they can.
Everything is made fresh on the day, there's lots of choices and the service is fantastic.
Yesterday we had lasagne and chips and I can honestly say I've never tasted something so nice, it was homemade by one of the Italian girls there.

The only downside was, you know when you're enjoying something so much, you wolf it down ...well that's what happened, then I felt bloated all day, I should have listened to my mum when she said 'stop' but I couldn't bear to leave any LOL... Here's the proof...

So when you're next over, pop on in there and treat'll be glad you did :) :)
On a crafty note, ALL the new Bazzill colours turned up, except for one :( :( now I've sorted out the Greens, Teals and Blues, but I've still got to sort ALL the other colours....bear with !!!!

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…
