About Me

I'm a freelance artist, designer and demonstrator and have been involved in arts and craft my whole life in one way or another. I design stamps for top British company Personal Impressions, under the "Lindsay Mason Designs" brand, as well as papers, templates and other crafting products. I'm a certified Ranger Educator and my first book,"Stamping", was published in 2009. I also design regular projects for Crafts Beautiful magazine and have made guest appearances from time to time on QVC. I've recently joined You Tube under the name of LindsayMason1000 where I'm posting short technique videos and you can buy my paintings and hand crafted pieces from my Etsy shop. My work takes me all around the country demonstrating stamping, papercrafts and general inkiness! When I'm not working, I love gardening, church & community activities, nature watching, journalling, music and theatre and just relaxing at home. Email me at: ljm.design1@virginmedia.com

Happy Christmas everyone!

Hello everyone, and hope that you are all looking forward to Christmas now, in whichever way you spend it. Hope too that you got all of your cards made...I have to confess that I didn't get to make all of mine! I've just finished wrapping the last of my gifts and will be off to my parents' tomorrow for a week of rest and relaxation, although I will be cooking the Christmas lunch which is rather a worry as I'm not known for my culinary expertise!
I'd love to say that I took this gorgeous picture of the squirrel myself, but, no, I have to confess that it was on the RSPB newsletter! Isn't he cute though, all tufty and bright eyed. I took the photo on the right though!
This is under mum and dad's tree which we decorated a couple of weeks ago - the snowmen on the right are ones I made years ago and look a bit battered now, but one of the lovely things about this time of year is the way that traditional things are important even if they are tatty round the edges!
I shan't be able to post now till next year (!), so I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and let us all hope that 2009 brings us all lots of positive things. Lindsay

Merry Christmas Lindsay, hope you had a good one :) Just got rid of all the nieces and nephew so here's hoping for a quiet end to the year!! I was spoilt and got the full boxed set of prisma colour pencils off my other half, not had much time to play with them but watch this space!!!
