I've been having a little chat with a few of you guys lately, and have been informed that whilst you read this blog you don't use Facebook. So, after I picked my chin up off the floor and brushed myself down, I realised that you're  missing out :( :( 

I just assumed most people that use the internet use Facebook, silly of me, I know....I also realise I probably use it far too much LOL !! 

So, without further ado, here's a little video I shared (on Facebook) last week....

For those of you that do other Social Media sites, did you know we're on Pinterest, Twitter, You Tube (obvs) !!! and Instagram....I loves me a bit of Instagram....go check it out, 'Sugarandspice' it's such a quick and simple way of keeping  up to date with all that's going on.

I Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weather, we're busy in the shop, still loading all the NEW yummies on the website, you can check some of them out HERE, we've also been hard at work designing and creating products for the Handmade Fair in September....Exciting !!!! This is a brand new venture for us, I had to make the hard decision, do I go to Ally Pally or the Handmade Fair this September and Kirsty Allsop WON !!!! So annoying that it was on the same weekend, but hey ho these things are sent to try us :) :) :) 

For those of you on the Pocket Scrapbooking Course, here's a little sneak of month 5

Talking of Pocket Scrapbooking I'm thinking of doing little video tutorials, so watch this space.

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…
