Well it is isn't it !!! About time I blogged again. I feel so bad as I made a promise to myself (and you guys) when I closed my shop that I would blog EVERY week... What happened there ??? 
My first excuse is America (twice) Frankfurt and Birmingham and that's just the trade shows... In between that are all the classes. I just need another 3 days in the week please... 
Frankfurt was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G... So busy and I got to speak German... Danke and weinerschitzel were two widely used ones 😂😂 I reckon a few more visits and I'll be fluent!!
The NEC was sooo busy and fun fun fun as always. If you follow me on Periscope you'll have seen what we got up to and if you couldn't join us live then you can watch it on Katch.
Some yummy food consumed at the Irish bar in Frankfurt.
Ingrid, Tania and myself having a group hug before the show began.
Ingrid and myself at the end of the show, I think Tania was in the floor.
Now we're on our way to Brum. This time I travelled in style with the lovely Leandra and Emma from PaperArtsy... We made it just in time for Sir Tim's class... Which by the way was fabulous !!!
Got to catch up with the lovely Karen Burniston , here we are showing off our gorgeous WOW! Rings.
Our most important secret stash at the show... Well a girls gotta have chocolate.
In amongst all this hard work and fun I got to make a couple of videos this week for Simon Says Stamp.

You can catch the first one here... 
And while you're there why not subscribe to their channel and they'll tell you when they're posting the next. Enjoy

Long time, no see. I love how you always manage to get a photo of food LOL and that chocolate stash looks pretty impressive.
Sounds like you are keeping busy but also having fun.

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!!

I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....

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 ....
