Well the car is all packed and ready to head of to Thetford to set up in about 30 minutes... can't believe I'm actually all sorted and ready early -miracles do happen!.... As ever I'll be a happier bunny once I'm all set up ... why do I get nervous setting up... just that panic that I know everything won't fit onto my stall ... but I always get there in the end!

I've made up some lovely new samples, including a gorgeous little bound book with pics from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD (will scan and post them on shortly - it's packed in the car at the moment!)... but also made lots of very cute ATCs from the JS cds... fashion, Jayne Netley Mayhew & the new (very cute!) Messy Rabbit CD...

Had a great time yesterday experimenting with spritzing the glimmer mists over papers I've printed off.... fab effect - highly recommended!!!

As usual it took ALL my willpower not to just desecrate my new stock of glimmer mists that arrived this week... I have my eye on a couple and have promised that if they make it through sales tomorrow & club night Monday then it's just fated that they end up in my craft box hee hee!

I'll try and pop by again later in the week.. got to do a huge stock take so I'm bound to be wandering the trimcraft forum in search of a little sanity with all that counting!!

Finally caught my breath from last Sunday's event at Needham which was Fab!... met so many people and really enjoyed myself doing my demos... that blue ink on my fingers was still there on Tuesday... but seeing as I spent 4 hours spraying glimmer mists it's hardly surprising!. I've got round to doing a couple more project sheets (can be downloaded via my website). ... and it's not long now till my project appears in creative cardmaking - very excited about that! I'm hoping to find time either this evening or tomorrow to experiment with the peacock elusive images stamps and also do out my bird ATCs for my club swap on Wednesday.. I've got all the ideas just need to slot in the time to execute them! I've already put in a top up order for ink pads they were so depleted in stock from last week... and added lots of differen kaleidacolour pads to the range... may just have to liberate one of them I think!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...... eh???

It's like Christmas all over again!.... all my parcels of supplies ordered at the trade show are gradually arriving, and oh the anticipation of opening the boxes and ooohing and aaahing over the goodies inside!.....
My favourite so far has to be the elusive images stamps.... so many I could happily add to my crafting stash.. but at least I have got two sheets all to myself so I can do out some displays & samples (that's my excuse anyway!!).
Starting to plan for Needham Market - just over a week away - and the decisions of what to demo on the day!... I think the glimmer mists might have to be on the list... as long as I don't spray all my customers by accident... will have to work out a good way to cover the table I think!... or perhaps I need to get a box to spray into... will have to plan that one carefully!

more pages!

Here's the one of my latest pages! this is my Mum & Dad when they were young... I just love the colours on this page.. but I have a thing about blue & brown combinations.
Only one more day to go before my NEC trip.... but I've still got so much to do!

Wet Wet Wet

It's too wet... I don't think my feet have dried out yet from loading up the car after club last night!...
I've managed to get quite a few scrapbook pages done... another 5 in fact - I'll try and scan them in ASAP and put them up. Today's project is to work on my 3 cards to submit for a magazine.. first time I've done this so want to make sure they are extra good!.. got a few ideas so at least I'm not starting from a blank!
Only 3 days to go till birmingham... yippeee!

Where do I start?

Right... now I've sorted my link back to my blog so I can start using it again!...
Been busy doing LOTS of crafting this week (no wonder I fell asleep for 2 hrs on the sofa this afternoon!... I've had lots of cards to make for the local shop, lots of samples to make for the new products I've got in stock and turn into download sheets (now done & on my website!), I've got 3 cards to design for a magazine ad, and also trying to finish my brother's 40th birthday scrapbook album by the 20th of this month.... are we still restricted to only 7 days a week... can't someone add an 8th at all?
My favourite card I've done so far... difficult decision but I think it has to be this cat card..... just love that colour!... cat is from jayne netley mayhew cd rom and the backing paper is from artylicious Damask Delights CD.

Getting very excited about the trade show in just over a week... got some fab workshops to attend.. can't wait!
Now should I do some cards this evening.. or another scrapbook page... decisions decisions!
