I'd love to say I'm all organised and cooking on gas....but I hang my head in shame...I'm so not organised.
I've been sooooo busy since I closed the shop, don't get me wrong I'm not moaning, and I can honestly say it was the BEST thing I ever did. I'm so incredibly happy and relaxed and I LOVE my commute to work...LOL !!!
It's my little piece of heaven, I'll take some internal photos soon. One of the nicest things is I get to spend time with my lovely Tyson (my chocolate Labrador) admittedly he just sleeps nearly all day, but I'm there with him, he's getting on a bit, like us all.
Everyday I seem to be up to my eyes in it, designing, teaching, creating, working, cleaning (love me a bit of cleaning) I even managed to take mum to lunch a couple of times...not enough I know !!
Then yesterday I actually had a bit of free time, I'd done a video for WOW Embossing Powders the day before and thought 'hey, I'm going to do one for me' and YOU.... And this is the result, it was completely off cuff and may have gone horribly wrong but it worked !! Woo hoo !!
Now all I have to do is get sorted for teaching in Portugal then on to the States, Florida and North and South Carolina (just a tad excited) in September then it's our Retreat in October and thanks to the Paula Poston we're rocking that !!!
I will be back I promise

Such a long commute for you now Marion LOL.
Glad you have managed to spend some time with your Mum - I know that was what you were hoping.
The video is fun and the card is a little cutie - TFS.

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…
