A cuppa and a catch up.

January is nearly done and dusted, talking of which we had a dusting of snow here last night, nothing much to speak of but a bit treacherous for those out early before the sun had chance to melt the black ice.

There’s quite a bit to for me catch up on here on the blog, a few classes with photo’s of wonderful creations from my crafty ladies. We have been exploring Brusho’s which was a repeat of an earlier class, Eclipse word/name cards,  this was the second technique following on from the Eclipse frames we did at class and floating panel cards. I will be sharing the photo’s and techniques here on the blog from all these classes.

Tomorrow’s class uses a fab Sue Wilson die, I have used this in 3 different ways all of which will be shown here as a step by step technique. It’s called Finishing Touches, Family Tree.

A lot going on in January, most importantly the tax return was completed and sent off, phew! My daughter and I had our annual visit to London to see the pantomime at the Palladium, a visit to my favourite store, Liberty’s and a meal at Wagamama where we sat opposite cast member Vincent Simone! Lol


We’ve been busy helping my daughter move into her first home, it’s not easy to get on the property ladder these days and we are extremely proud of her for achieving this. It’s such a lovely little house and I’m sure she will be very happy and settled there. Frasier might even be allowed to visit occasionally! Lol It’s only 5 minutes from here we live so I’m sure she’ll be popping in for dinner and such like.

February is hectic, I’ll be meeting with friends at the NEC for CHSI, Stitches show and then will be with the lovely SamathaK at Make It Farnborough. Weekly classes will run here in Kent through February. When the leaflet was delivered for this years event I opened it to see myself alongside the lovely Suz demoing there last year. This year is a social visit and to meet with friends and catch up on the latest news and products.

I’ve been celebrating with the rest of the Samantha Kingdon DT who have features in this months Craft Stamper magazine.
It’s such a privilege to be part of the team, each and everyone so amazingly talented!
Thank you Sam for the opportunity, your designs are awesome and the first stamp release is superb!

Much more in the diary so I will post details nearer the time for these events and classes.
