Holland today!

Holland today!

Hi there All aboard for a quick trip to the Netherlands! Cor, I wish!! I would be off to Leiden in a heartbeat, but I just don‘t think it’s safe at this time. And anyway, I am way too busy! But do head on over to our Clarity matters blog – the lads are in full swing over there, and there’s a little competition going too. Me? I’m up to my ass (that’s actually Dutch for arse!!) in stamps and…

Hakuna Matata!

Hi there. Thanks for joining me. Whistle stop tour of Africa today! Seems like absolutely ages ago since we spent a week there, doesn’t it. Head on over to the Claritymatters blog, for a guided tour… Me? Well, I decided to have a clear out in the SHAC-Shack. Looks like a bloodybomzitit! Trouble is, it always gets worse before it gets better, right? And right now, as I write, I am sitting waist high in boxes and black sacks and…

Day Trip to New Mexico? I wish!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Just got back from a smashing day with my parents. We didn’t go far – just round Kent, Headcorn area. Very, very beautiful it is too!

I did enjoy our week there; New Mexico is called The Land of Enchantment for…

Day trips are cool

Day trips are cool

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Yep, although today has been a day for paying bills and catching up on personal paperwork, I’m definitely doing day trips on my week off! Tomorrow I’m off to see Mum and Dad, and we’ll be taking a run out through the Kentish countryside in the car, just so they can see something other than their back garden. A change is as good as a rest, and all that! No need to get out…

Take a walk in the garden with me….

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Been prepping for Sunday’s rather special One Day Special. Remember those fab Garden Groovi Plates by Linda Williams? Well, we’ve turned them into a magnificent collection of Garden Stamps. Honestly! I can‘t stop building scenes with them! The possibilities are endless! And as if that wasn’t irresistible already, have you got those Entwined Season stamps I drew a few months ago? These ones: Wait till you build the scenes within these frames! Like this:…

I’ve called in the cavalry on that…

I was looking at our lovely collection of Fresh Cut Dies. They’ve been around for about as long as Dave and I have been married – just over 2 years. And I know this to be correct, because it was our laser cut wedding invitations which set the Fresh Cut…
