There's no denying it, my life is mega busy at the mo, I only get one day off a week...c'mon let's hear it...arhhhhhh :) :) 

Since getting this one day off, I've been spending it catching up with friends and just, well, enjoying myself :) :) 
This Monday was no exception, to celebrate the lovely Suzanne's birthday we took a trip to London, had a bit of pampering and shopping in the wonderful Jo Malone's
I thoroughly recommend it !!! 

We had a lovely lunch at the Royal Exchange and then walked, yes walked, we really needed to burn lunch off, to the Tower of London.........and WOW what a sight.
The Sea of Poppies (don't know if that's it's correct title, but that what I've called it) was a STUNNING sight to see..
Not the best pic here, but if you look closely you can see it coming out of the wall above !!
Here they meander around the Tower
And this is the other side and they've mapped out further round ready for more !!!

I've been up to London a few times in the last month or so and it makes me ask the question....why don't I go there more often, it's such a beautiful city and so until my next adventure !!!
I've been busy designing classes...more Project Life, perfect for beginners and advanced alike, along with good old 12" x 12" scrapbooking, you can check out the offerings HERE, I'm also adding a couple of fabulous classes that Nina's doing today to the list, we even have a brand new style class on a Sunday where you make a page in the morning then you have an option to stay the rest of the day and crop (posh word for play) LOL !!
Just to remind you all, we will be closed this Bank Holiday Monday
So we hope you have a fun filled day with your family and loved ones :) :) normal business will resume on Tuesday :) :) 

Have you seen all our new yummies recently arrived ? No !!! Then what are you waiting for, pop on in

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…
