Whoooo hooo!

*Good news alert*

Yes, I have had quiet alot of good news lately, hence why i've been alittle AWOL with this blog...

Firstly I was emailed by Teresa from Fidgeons Crafts (http://www.fidgeonscrafts.co.uk/) to go up and do two days demo~ing in August! Yay! Which of course I said yes too :) So currently i'm rolling around in Cosmo Cricket and Tinkering Ink and totally enjoying coming up with lots of fabby projects for that weekend :)

Secondly ... and probably most unexpectedly and totally fabby is that I went into Sugar and Spice (http://www.sugarandspicecrafts.co.uk/) and Marion asked me if I wanted a job there! Hooooooray! :) Of course I said yes *and did a huge happy dance* ~ the shop is so yummy and welcoming :) So I start this Friday.

So I am totally imersed in crafty projects, cutting paper and loving cardstock. I cannot tell you how grateful I am to be given a chance to go for it and enjoy my hobby, these two fabby ladies have given me the chance to make my hobby part of my job. I won't be giving up London Care just yet... but who knows what the future holds?

Of course, with all this 'my love of lists' just got mega long... I have 16 tasks already and none of these are housework/mummy related. But I just am loving the fact i'm so busy :)

I also have downloaded this (http://www.craftedge.co.uk/) software for my expression. Honestly, buy it! It's the best and yesterday I cut some fabby fonts from my lappy. And I have also been told you can create your own designs in inkscape *whoooosh* hear that bit of technology fly over my head??! I may try, when I have more time...

And I have been 'making' lots too... Lots of LO's a few mini projects... heaps...







This one I did a while ago but forgot to upload. The piccie I used is an oldie (from 1981 *hears gasps*) and it was my first birthday :) The whole'wood' look just reminds me of back then, when we had that hideous fake wood wallpaper (yes, really!).


A simple mini of one gorgeous boys love of pocoyo.... Using one complete sheet of patterned paper and then a few scraps (and those lurverly hambly atc overlays!)









This piccie screamed out for lilac and purple paper... A random LO documenting my product love!

Mirrors on LO's are so cool. Stamping on mirrors works well too :)

And check out all the cool co'ordinations cardstock I used to cover those gorgeous chipboard stars....

Oh I just love love love this paper range ;)






And this last LO is just specially dedicated to Shaulean... She really is so fabby! And the colour of this LO really reflects her personality ~ bright, bubbly and super fantastic :)
