Yesterday was our last full day :( :( :(
When we were out here in January we were lucky enough to meet up with one of our very special friends Jerry, and he treated us to dinner at Fogo de Chao. It's a Brazillian steakhouse that is just AMAZING...the service is impeccable, they make you feel so special and the salad bar is to die for.
The Gaucho's come round with different cuts of steak, there's also chicken, lamb, pork and sausages. But mainly you're there for the steak... NOT FOR VEGETARIANS !!! LOL they carve the steak at your table, all you have to choose is well done, medium or rare :)

They constantly reload your table with polenta, sweet glazed bananas (apparently they cleanse your palette between meats) and creamy yummy mashed potato.
We saved just a little room for dessert and went for the Brazillian Flan, on their recommendation .... And oh boy it was amazing, they knew we were there for a celebration and bless them, they decorated the plate :) :)

It didn't last long....

After that, we felt a wee bit bloated LOL, so went on a little journey to another favourite store....HomeGoods....oh mum you're going to love me so much when you see what we got you :) :)

We're driving back down to LA this morning and nipping into the Garment District to see if I can get some yummy bits :) :)
Nearly home...hope the sun's shinning !!!

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…
