Apart from relaxing, chilling, shopping, eating, drinking and making,I've made a resolution this holiday season to do lots more videos and classes, some will be on-line classes with downloadable step by step PDF's, some will be tutorials on You Tube, so to make sure you don't miss any, make sure you subscribe to 'Marion Emberson' or Sugar and Spice Crafts on You Tube, it's also a good idea to make sure you're signed up to our newsletter on the website so you don't miss any news like the sale below !!!
To give you a little taste, here's my first video of 2015...

The shop opens back up on Tuesday 6th at 10am, so we can prepare it for THE SALE !!! Whoa....hang on a minute, did I just say SALE ? Why yes, I did :) :) 
It starts Wednesday 7th at 10am and goes through to Sunday 11th and you can save a whopping 25% off everything that's not already on special, or magazines, or classes, or special orders.
So pop on down and grab a bargain, stock up on all your essentials and load up on some of the best papers in the area, so we're told...thank you people. :) :) 
If you don't live local, then don't worry we're doing it on the website also, just put in the code 'HAPPY JANUARY' we'll do our best to keep it updated, but can't guarantee !!!
It'll be great to see you all back at Sugar and Spice and we look forward to serving you in 2015.

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…
