BOSTON Day 1

well.....technically we're not in Boston, but actually a place called Wesborough, which is near Natick which has a wonderful shopping mall AND Cheesecake Factory.
I don't want anyone being jealous and thinking 'oh she's soooo lucky' as I would just like to remind you it's near freezing, there's snow on the ground and rain in the clouds :) :)
The first class was taught to all the lovely reps yesterday, which meant we had to wait to have the room prepared...well, we couldn't wait around for them to do it so Richard took things into his own hands and tried to do his 'let's clear this table in one fell swoop'
It didn't work !!!!! LOL... This is the lovely Katie one of the Collins' girls making a quick exit....
So the class was taught and then we had to go to the airport and pick up the lovely Jen, who's joining us for the weekend. Richard was cold and needed a jumper so it was him who actually suggested the mall...YAY !!!! And what a beautiful mall, I got Rick a fabulous bargain in the way of Greg Norman, so he'll be happy and I picked myself up a few bits in Sephora...love that shop and then I found a Pandora so added two new additions to my Troll bracelet...sorry forgot a photo..
This is one of my favourite all time stores.....
If any of you have ever been there you'll know what I mean...
Then it was on to Brookstones...oh boy as a techno lover I just love this place, this time I got lured in to the massage chair and got a full body massage....seriously, it was amazing and all for just $9000.00 yep, nine thousand, if only I could get it on the plane !!! Everything was good in the land of massage until I got tapped on the shoulder by the lad to say they were now closed..whoops !!! 

Here's a quick pic from above of a rather LARGE sushi place in the middle of the mall.
If you like sushi !!!!!
We went on to eat at a place called Uno, never been to one before, it's italian and actually really nice !! 
I had mashed potato with broccoli and the best tasting herb and garlic rubbed chicken...oh boy it was yum.
So, until the next instalment you carry on enjoying all that lovely sunshine I'm hearing about
Hugs

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
