We're back !!!!!! But not before I share with you our last day and show you the other side of Vegas...

It's not all bright lights, cocktail waitresses and machines that go chink chink......but I still love it !!!!!
On the drive back to LA, we stopped off at Peggy Sue's diner for breakfast and even though the place was a wee bit tacky, I have to say it was the best breakfast I'd had all week :) :)

I did a little driving, but couldn't stop laughing so had to pull up and let Rick take over...It probably didn't help that I was veering over onto the hard shoulder, which in Calico was a dirt my dust LOL !!

And to finish the trip off we went to the Garment District (another favourite of mine, I have a lot of favourite places in the states) but not before we saw another side of LA...

The Garment District is truly an Aladdin's cave of tack and treasures, I, of course picked the treasures LOL !!! So pop in the shop some time soon and see my finds :) :)
Well, I hope you've enjoyed coming on my little journey, hope I didn't make you too hungry :), now I have to stay awake as it's back in the shop tomorrow and normality.

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!!

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…
