Dorset and Father in Law's Birthday

I am finally back from my holiday in my home county Dorset and thought you might like to share one of the gorgeous sunsets I saw one evening. We were blessed with fantastic weather whilst we were down there and I even managed to catch a very slight tan. This was a family holiday as we took my parents and mainly a nostalgia trip for my Mum as she has been homesick for Dorset just lately.
Whilst we were there I also managed to meet up with my lovely upline Jenny and two other members of her team Val and Jane. We had a crafting morning which flew by far too quickly but we did have fun and it was a lovely taster of the riot we are going to have at Convention in November ( when even more of the team will be gathered) Thanks girls for a brilliant morning.
In addition it was my Father in Law's birthday on the 26th so here is the card I made for him, I hope he liked it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Well I have to say there may be a lack of posts for this next week as we are frantically trying to get my new craft space finished in time for my New Catalogue Launch Party which is on Thursday afternoon and evening. I have all the furniture arriving tomorrow and the blinds on Tuesday so it is going to be a really close shave to get it all done in time.......I am so glad my hubby is a STAR for working so hard since we got back from our hols. In addition to the actually room design jobs, I have also been frantically working on all new samples for my display boards etc so hopefully my ladies will enjoy seeing some of the new designs from the BRAND NEW CATALOGUE that goes live tomorrow.

All of my existing customers should have received their personal invitation by now so if you have not had a card from me then please get in touch asap. If you are not yet a customer but would like to join in the fun on Thursday then please email me to arrange this.

Lots of Scallops

At last I actually do have a card I can share with you. (I have been working on a number of samples in this past week but I will not be able to share those with you until after 1st October when our new SU Catalogue goes live)
My upline Jenny sets her team a mini challenge each month and this is my entry for her September challenge. It is so quick to re-create as it is simply 6 strips of cardstock decorateded with the scallop border punch and 3 tiny flowers made with the Boho Blossoms punch. Add a sentiment, tiny bit of ribbon and a silver clip. Voila it's done !

I will be back tomorrow when I hope to be able to show you a sneak peak of my next class for October

Developing new Craft Space

Hi there
I am sooooo sorry that yet again I find myself apologising for lack of blog posts.
I have not had the best 6 weeks of the year and all my creative thoughts sort of flew out the window and I wasn't able to come up with anything worth sharing with you...

Although I do not have a card to show you today I do have something amazingly creative to share with you. This is my whole new craft space in the making and by that I mean it is going to be my new classroom AND my office, all in the same spot. I needed to bring all my craft areas together and also have it separate to our actual living area and the conservatory will deliver exactly that. My regular class ladies have been watching the progress each week and I think some of them are as excited as I am about the new space, especially as it looks huge at the moment until I start moving in my new cupboards etc and I am sure that it will feel 100% smaller once my Stamping Up stash moves in too.

The builder finished the plastering this week and it is now ready for painting so we need to get a move on with that. DH also then has 22 boxes of tiles to fit and I need to get on and get the window blinds sorted.......and then just a few more finishing touches and it will be ready.

Realistically speaking it is now going to be October when I shall be ready for my first classes in this beautiful new craft room. What better time to move in and increase my classes when the SU new catty also goes live on the 1st October. I am planning lots of new and fresh classes and will now have room to fit up to 10 ladies at a time. If you are interested in my up and coming classes for October and November please get in contact and get your name on my mailing list. I will then let you know as soon as I am posting details of the new classes on a regular basis.

Anyway hope you like the look of my new crafting space and don't forget to pop back to see how it is coming on. I cannot wait until I can show you the completed project and hopefully it will not be too long .
