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 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

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…
