Workshop fun

Sunday I shared a fun afternoon with eighteen lovely ladies tutoring at a three hour workshop getting inky.  

I would say they were all well behaved but there was a naughty one or two and they know who they are lol.  

Cake did someone say cake.. OMG did I get treated to the most amazing home baking ever!  So good actually that I got caught sneaking back for more lol.  

Think there was probably a few sneaking in the house with all their purchases from the pop up shop and now.. well now I get to look forward to doing a pre Christmas workshop with them later in the year so thinking cap is on.  


John Lockwood

We had the lovely John Lockwood demonstrating in the shop for two days last week and what a fabulous time we had.  

Such a lovely, genuine person oozing to share his hints, tips and inspiration with everyone.   

Group picture taken at the end of two very busy days so we look a little tired.  


Long haul

My amazing step daughter is currently half way round the world in the land of Oz conducting research on 18th century music.   What a job eh!   

So relieved there are things such as WhatsApp and video chat to help us keep in touch along with a daily read of her blog which she's updating daily in relation to her research.  

So proud of her. 

Picture taken on her first day there outside Sydney Opera House.


Lots of cheer

Lots of fabulous new products have arrived in store including stamps and the beautiful glitter kiss.


My birthday

Can you believe what they done to me in work on my birthday!!!  

Yep they made me wear a huge badge the whole day and forced me to eat cake.. Lots of cake lol.  

Oh and they gave me some beautiful presents too so I had to forgive them.  


Crafty besties

February saw the annual trade show in Birmingham which also means it's time for me to pack my bags and go stay with my wee buddy Hels Sheridan.  

Obviously we behaved.. NOT!   

We had a few fabulous days at the show catching up with friends, browsing new products and assisting in assisting few workshops..  I need to take a picture of the fabulous t-shirt I made using the new Screen Sensation.  What a fab product that allows you to design on different surfaces.   

Lots of giggles, delicious Sunday roast with all the trimmings thanks to her lovely hubby and my dear friend Graham, sofa days watching Pretty Woman whilst eating candy floss, crisps and sweets.   

What wonderful friends I have!  


It's been a while!

Well folks it's been a month since I last posted and can't believe how quickly that time has gone so I will try and upload a few pictures and some updates of what's happened during that time.

Corrie McKeague

Corrie is a missing British Military Serviceman who disappeared mysteriously after a night out in Bury St Edmonds in September 2016.  

Neither Corrie, his phone or his wallet have ever been found. 

Tonight from 8-10 pm UK time there is a tweet storm.  If you can please tweet to keep Corrie in the headlines and also to raise awareness as there are still people out there unaware of his disappearance. 

Tonight's hashtag is #letsfindcorrie 

Thank you

Party time..

Well yesterday was a new experience for me as I helped my neighbour with her sons 9th birthday party.   A Hummer limo ride for an hour complete with 15 kids, followed by food and party games.   All I can say was clean up was fun but the kiddies had a superb day and that's what it's all about.   Oh and when a 9 year old puts his arms around you and gives you a kisses several times throughout the day then says thank you for helping mum with my party..  awe bless my heart melted every time.   Love that boy to bits.  


Well we were threatened with snow last week and it sure felt like the baltic so it was time for the fur lined boots at work.  #snugasabug all day.  Happy girl.  


Operation 'zone tidy' has begun and I've only just realised exactly how much stuff I have stored over the years..  it's going!!!

Chill time..

Hogmanay shopping done I treated the old man to dinner at Pizza Hut.   Just love their cream soda!  

My Boy. .

Spending some quality time with my old boy on new years day.  Love him to bits. 

Clowning around

When you're at work between Christmas and new year what else is there to do on a lunch break except send your colleague daft selfies lol 

Deep in thought

It may have been a fun day for us but in the back of my mind was those parted from their loved ones from troops, to homeless to the missing.  Lit a wee candle for them all especially #findcorrie 


Even got the old man joining in the stupidity lol 


Definitely who I get my stupidity from lol 


Think was having just too much fun playing with my phone lol 

Mum never grows up!

Christmas Day
