This and that.........

Okay, don't know why i've decided to type tonight - been to the allotment with my trimmery thing and can hardly move my arms! I'm so unfit. Hey, abit more trimming and I'll be sorted though eh - and the weeds on my allotment will keep me busy for an age.

Anyhow, lifes good. Had such a lovely weekend with the Crafty Notions crew, friendly and wonderful as ever (if your reading this though Peggy, I missed you and hope to catch up soon xxx). Sarah has created some new amazing paints, and sprays and embossing powders, so I was in mucky inky heaven. Still got ink down my nails now (I've washed, honest). Better scrub em for tomoz. As usual forgot to take loads of photos, rubbish......got a few when i'd finished prepping though.

What else, well had a tremendous evening on Monday, went to see them Crooked Vultures, just amazing - in fact altogether brill evening. That's all I'll say about that for now.

And now, to add to the fun I'm packed and ready for my hols! wow. We don't go till Sunday, but working Thurs Friday, up North Friday evening then travelling Sunday. I'm sooo excited. Me and my sis, beach, tent, festival. Happy scorchiooo days.

Righto, enough of my over excited babble, need to rest my arms in a warm bath then get an early night ready for my 3.30am set off (urgh).


Settled into the office block, into my new craft room, mess ensures without delay.





Our very own "magic hands" Dee, crafting in the warehouse - watch out for her doing workshops with me.






Just a few samples using the brill twiddly bitz, paints and embossing powders. The shine on them is beautiful, and the colours are georgeous to experiment with. The paints dry on most serfaces when heat set, so they are great for a wide variety of applications.




This was the warehouse, can you believe that all this space was an annex to our living room. I think Dylan really puts the enomity of it into perspective.

I went along to Crafty Notions and saw Leonie on the Sunday and can support her statement that her fingers got very mucky! She would paint with her fingers and did lots of spritzing as well. It was lovely to chat and catch up with the gossip since we chatted last year. Got to meet the doggies in personal - they were so well behaved a credit to their owner
