Good Day? Growing Day…

Good Day? Growing Day…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Well, as the sun sets, the moon rises, and this day draws to a close, I ask myself: what did I learn today? Well, I learned that you can’t put soluble Solpadeine in your Kambukka water bottle. (I know what it rhymes with too!) Prep wasn’t going well, the Pergamano show is looming at 8am on Thursday, and – in the words of 70’s Blockbusters Sweet – I haven’t got a clue what to…

All depends how you look at things…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Scurrying around here, changing horses, all set to head off to the NEC, Birmingham. Packing my demo kit here, and think I will stick to the plan: work around what we just did on telly – our new Christmas Baubles! Here’s a little sample I made which is quick and simple, and quite fun, too: How to: selection of Distress Oxide ink pads layered up on the second stamp in the Happy Christmas Set,…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Early rise and shine here, but glad of the extra hour in bed before heading up to the TV Studios. Did you remember the clocks go back? If you didn’t, happy days! You just gained an hour of life you didn’t know about! Paul and I will be hopping about till late today, so I thought I’d just pause for reflection this morning. Just focus on the day ahead, and what my job is….

High Spirits…

High Spirits…

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Woke up happy today. The sun is shining, the birds are all in the garde on the feeders for breakfast – and life is good. Paul is back from his holiday safe and sound, so I’ve got my buddy back too. Before he gets here, to help finalise the notes and prep for the shows, I thought I’d show you what I’ve been up to! No pottery this week – half term. But. I…

A tiny breakthrough…to Russia with love

A tiny breakthrough…to Russia with love

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! Whilst prepping for the Sunday show 2-4, I had a little breakthrough. Now it may only be a little thing, but to me it was a BIG THING INDEEDY!! Black shrink plastic has always eluded me, so I decided today was the day to figure it out. The new Joy to the World Bauble would look so lovely in gold on black, but tiny. She likes a challenge… Look! First run at it, not…

Cards, gifts and all that jazz!

Cards, gifts and all that jazz!

Hi there! Thanks for popping in. Thought I’d pop in myself, before heading off to Clarity Towers. It is pouring cats n dogs outside! So much for “suede shoes are in this season”!! Only snag is you can’t wear them outside! And no amount of pre-wear protective spray that they try and sell you with every pair is going to keep this deluge out. Wellies. That’s the only answer. Wellies. Anyway. Let’s make a coaster for somebody for Christmas. let’s…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Sunny Saturday. Great rugby result too! England 40 Australia 16. What a powerful game!

Here’s a story. So the rest of his rugby team were heading out to Japan the week before last, but Mark decided…

Hi there!Thanks for popping in. Good of you to join me on this rainy Friday morning. Before I head off to the office, let’s have a little chinwag and make somebody smile! Remember yesterday, I asked you to tell me three things about a card I made? Who designed the Die used? 2 . Which book does the background come from? 3 . Where did I find the words? Thank you everybody who joined in! Most of you got Mel…

Let me give you an Outline…

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Got the family over for roast lamb today, so thought I’d come and chat to you early, before they arrive. It’s Mum’s birthday tomorrow – celebration time!! I was looking back through my photos, of all the step by steps I have done on the blog over the years. GOOD GRACIOUS!! You don’t realise how quickly the time flies! It feels like only yesterday that we were launching these outline stamps – but it’s…

Quite the Christmas Event!

Quite the Christmas Event!

Hi there, Ho Ho Ho!! I know, I know. Christmas is weeks away. But if you are a cardmaker, or a giftmaker, then you are already thinking about it. I am! We looked at the Gray Friday date at work this morning, which is much later this year, at the end of November, in fact. Whilst that may fine to be stocking up on Stocking stash, so to speak, it is a bit late in the day for making cards…
