Another Crafty Afternoon!

What a great afternoon we have just had; 3 hours of crafting bliss, no phones, no children, and no footy interrupting the craftiness! I almost managed to complete the projects set...I say almost because I always talk too much and the mince pies were soooo yummy!!

Plans to launch my own classes after Christmas are well underway and I'll post the dates/locations here shortly. However, I do do home visits, or "Workshops" as they are known - think of me as your crafting midwife!!... bringing creativity to life!!

Feel free to contact me at for more information on classes or home workshops. All Stampin' Up products can be purchased through me as an Independant Stampin'Up Demonstrator.

Thinking of You - the base is Basic Grey card stock layed up with Pink Pirouette and then watercolour paper stamped with Pocket Sillouettes inked using Stampin' Write Markers.

Catching Up

Stampin'Up 2010 Convention seems ages ago now... but I am surrounded by beautiful swaps I received from the event to remind me how talented some people are! And I am busy tidying up my craft room to show them off and to give me some inspiration!
Anyway on Saturday I attended my upline (Linz) latest class, but as another demo its hard to stay focussed on getting projects finished when people need your help... and we are like crafty fairies.. flitting around sprinkling magic crafting dust on everyone (actually its really dazzling diamonds glitter!!!). Me winning the raffle was high on my agenda for the afternoon and incredibly your's truly got 1st and 2nd prize... one being the gorgeous Christmas set..... "Delightful Decorations". So I am truly a happy stamper!!
See you later! xx
