Promarker Day!!

Ooooohhhh have had a lovely day today spending this morning at a Promarker class at Stampeezee in Coventry.

Here are a couple of the images I coloured in: This is peachy Tilda - I have coloured the peaches in red though so that they look like apples.
This boy is my little Oliver - I am really pleased how I have managed to capture his beautiful red locks:
Am really pleased with the techniques learnt today so guess what I will be doing tonight! Thank goodness my workshop packs are all packed up and ready for tomorrows class!

Ok this is it!

This will now be my little space out there on the big world wide web - if you do want to see any of my old ramblings please go to:


Hello there

Its no good - have been using my website blog and my live spaces blogs for ages now but have never really got to grips with them so I am returning to good old blogspot. I so wanted to write some funky code and backgrounds to make my blog stand out from the crowd but lets face it I just dont have the time and energy so I am back on here for ease of use!

Lately I have been working on:

All photos taken by Morag - her photography skills are soooo much better than mine. The cards are all for a "Cards for Christmas" workshop I am running on Wednesday 30th Sept and Tuesday 6th October - for more details see http://www.whathousework.co.uk/

Cards are made using some lovely Stampin Up! stamps and papers.

Here is the flyer for the workshop (told you Morag was good didnt I!)

I have also just become addicted to Promarkers - its the new Hobbycrafts fault (you know, the one thats opened up just up the road from me - yes honestly! I can walk there if necessary!) anyway they were selling four packs of five pens for £4.50 so I thought I would try a pack - I got them home and immediately loved them so that I had to go back that same day and buy another two packs - I then left it a few days before I went back for the fourth pack - I didnt want to seem too keen did I! Anyway since then I have bought a few more online and on Tuesday I am going to a Promarker class at Stampeezee in Coventry! Am so excited - watch this space for what I create!!

Long time no blog as usual!

Lots going on over the past few weeks - have been busy enjoying spending time with my two boys before they both headed off to school fulltime last Monday. Have also been busy making a few things although they havent been photographed yet. Here is a layout I will be teaching at our next crop on 20th September 2009:

honestly I thought when both children went to school fulltime I would have time to catch up on all these little jobs however its now my fourth day and I still havent managed to put the duster around let alone do nice bloggy things! Lets hope that that changes soon.....
