Craft Club

The next club is going ahead (hooray). It's this Monday as planned (well, I have tried to ring to confirm, but no reply, so I presume alls well). We will meet at Jubilee Hall at 7.30. I haven't been able to prep any demonstrations as such, so it will be a normal club night. If you haven't attended a normal evening, then the theory is we come along, if you have things you want to share, stuff you don't know how to use, things you have bought and can't get inspired by, or just cool stuff you've made to show the group - then bring them along. Hopefully we will be able to share ideas, maybe do some crafting and have a great chat. It's the same price (£3), and this goes towards the rent of the room, refreshments and hopefully, when we have enough funds in the pot, we will be able to get a demonstrator in - or all go to a crafty show with the proceeds!! wow.

Anyway, I do hope to see some friendly faces, and will hopefully be able to bring along my friend Jenny who is also a crafty type and will be getting stuck in.

See you on Monday.


Well, I need to prep for my Martha Stewart show tomoz, so not going to waffle to much, but just wanted to say how very marvelous me and my sisters adventure to Benicassim was. We did the festival and I still managed to read to books (oh yes, how rock and roll eh - obviously much to sober!). It was fab, a beach holiday, sea and the Prodigy. Tremendous. I have yet to develope my photo's, but will hopefully do that within the next few years to share.......

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, 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.
