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

A late "Happy New Year"!

Apologies for being so long away from here. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a late "Happy New Year" to everyone.

My Christmas wasn't quite what I had in mind as the "bug" which I was suffering from turned out to be a severe ear infection, so I spent half my holiday going to and from the hospital! It was the most excrutiating pain that I've ever experienced! Thankfully the pain has now stopped, though I am still partly deaf with a loud ringing in my ear. All this has meant that I have been trying to catch up with work which got delayed....new stamp designs!....and is why I haven't updated the blog till now.

If you look at the demonstration list you'll see that the Making Cards weekend workshops have been removed. Unfortunately, administration problems have meant that these have had to be put on hold for the time being, but I will let you know as and when they are back on track.

I feel as if I've been working with Christmas themes for so long now that it will be a real treat to get into fresh Spring designs. The designs that I'm working on now will be launched at Stitches, the huge trade show, in February, and I will, of course, post samples of new products and ideas on here soon after that. The very talented Tim Holtz and Suze Weinberg from Ranger will both be on the Personal Impressions stand along with myself, so I will endeavour to get some good pictures to post and maybe some Blog Candy from all three of us...watch this space!

Well, I must get on with putting the finishing touches to the new designs and will post again in the next couple of days. Stay warm everyone...it's freezing here today! Lindsay
