Funky Foliage Dies and Stencils coming up….

Hi there !

Thanks for joining me. Bit late this evening. Been to a super surprise party. It was Katie‘s 30th Birthday, and she was blissfully unaware of the brilliant celebrations that her parents And sisters has planned for her. You should have seen her face when she walked into the hall full of friends and family.

Fantastic Moment.

It‘s tricky uploading pics from a phone to an iPad to a blog, so I shall build a little picture album for Katie when I get back home. But what a wonderful gathering of friends and family. Very very special.

So now I‘m tucked up in bed. Just caught up with Josie Davidson over a cuppa. She‘s all set to launch her new Groovi Palace Grids tomorrow at 6pm. She showed me the demos she has planned. Oh. My. Word. This adds a whole other brilliant element to her grid plates! Just when you thought it couldn‘t get any better, Josie nails it again! Time for you to meet the clever lady behind these designs, and let her show you her latest idea. Oh boy. Seriously ridiculously good. I just started laughing when I saw them. Will we have enough stock to last? Honestly? Not a chance. These are simply too beautiful and intelligent and useful not to want!

As for my 2-4 pm show, I‘ve got something for everyone! Dies, stencils, stamps AND Groovi.

Love this Die!
Love this die too!

And the Groovi plates with these designs? Well, since we had Linda Williams on the Pergamano Show on Thursday, and we’ve got Josie on tomorrow, I reckon that‘s plenty of trad parchment art to be getting on with! So I am going to put my stamp head on, and show you a couple of highlight lowlight tricks.

Do join me us tomorrow on Hochanda. The weather‘s iffy, so snuggle up and keep us company! We appreciate it xxx

Love and hugs,

Barb xx

    Have all today’s and tomorrow’s shows set to record. I predict a very swift sell out, especially on the ODS. Steve is going to need a bunch of Santa’s elves to help if this keeps up !!!
    Weather here in Norfolk is erratic, one minute glorious sunshine, the next down pours. 🌦 Freezing wind on Saturday but warmer today. Roll on summer ☀️

  14. Hi Barb,
    Sorry this is late but I was in bed before your post came up! What a lovely surprise for Katie, she looks really happy in the photos. Lovely that you and Paul could go as well – bet that made her day. So looking forward to the shows today and tomorrow although I think I’ll have to be quick off the mark to get the ODS ‘cos I can’t see it lasting beyond 30 minutes at the most!! Poor Steve, he must feel as though he’s hibernating as he can’t be seeing much daylight at the moment! Sending love and hugs,Alison xx
