Thank You.....

to Sarah, David and Peggy, and all the lovely people I met at the weekend signing my book and having a brilliant time demonstrating with Sarah's fabulous spritzers. It was so good to be meeting people and demoing again. Everyone was so friendly, and Sarah and David were fantastic hosts and friends. If you haven't already checked out Sarah's work you need to, it's truly inspirational (I've popped her details on my link list but just Google Sarah Lawrence). Her wealth of knowledge is hugh, and it made me want to try a thousand new things - especially after seeing her workshop!

Needless to say I've picked up a few new items which I'm itching to have a play with. Shopping is ace isn't it!

I'm now on the 8th day of my work marathon, finishing on Friday with the Queens Conference. Had a good day today on air with Craig, we had a 2 hour craft outlet, with lots of bargains, which went really well. Love the 1lb of paper if anyone managed to pick that up. I've always loved handmade papers, but have always been terrible at buying the massive sheets, then having trouble storing them, so they have become ragged. The paper 1lb gives you loads of variety and is small enough to actually use and store. My nails still had a bit of a yellow tinge from the weekend (from the inks of course), but I think that added to the effect!

I must pop on a massive apology to my ATC club members, time has not been on my side, and now I'm attempting to pack boxes for the move. My aim is to completely catch up next week when we are in our new house, as we have a couple of Tuesday's off, so should have plenty of time.

Hi Leonie! I watched you on Mondays show on QVC. I had my eye on the ATC set with holders and envelopes but now I can't find it anywhere on QVC's website! Could you give me the name or product details when you have the time. Thank you!

I've just received your ATC kits from QVC and I'm really impressed with the value in them and love the idea of the jigsaw and domino cards. Great to see you producing your own kits! Good luck moving house.

Hi Leonie

There is an award waiting for you on my blog.
I know Sharon has awarded it to you too, so I'll understand that you won't want to post about this twice.
Thanks for everything you do.
