No pics this time...

I have been to a class at Home of the Artistic Stamper with Georgina taking the lesson with a 'Guest' (Jennie) doing a UTEE demo. I can't show any pics as we made cards that. I intend to use in the near future. I can tell you that we used lots of techniques, grunge paste, stamps, embossing - heat and through an embossing machine. We also inked, painted and used a Gelli plate, though I still am not comfortable with that. I got some good suggestions of where to go for more practice, thanks Lesley, I will take a look on YouTube and see if I can get more help there.

I bought a Tim Holtz empty alarm clock which I have an idea for, if it works out I will show it here but it will be a whole as I have so many plans, none of which am I making substantial progress on.

Just looked outside and what was a beautiful sunny day has reverted to the set and grey we seem to have for ages, oh well a good excuse to craft I guess.

See you soon.

Ok let's start again

I can't believe how long it is since I blogged, May of last year! Well the only excuse is that I have had a lot to do! There are other excuses but I really have been lazy if I am honest. I have had things to show, all those workshops at


So I am starting again as we are retiring next month and I need to have lots of projects to keep me busy. Along with blogging I have lots of projects waiting for me in the craft room and I have also taken up quilting and that will make the blog as well.


Chris has had his new car as his retirement present, mine is a little more modest. I haven't got it yet as it isn't released till 10 February. I have a Brother ScanNCut on order. The biggest draw is the fabric cutting as I am not having huge success using a rotary cutter, it is OK but not accurate enough. I expect I will use it for other things as well though. I expect some will make the blog too.


So hopefully I will see you very soon.
