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

Wonderful day in Wickford!

I'm back home from a really enjoyable day at Wickford's yesterday and am putting my feet up, relaxing and catching up with emails and calls. I'll be posting the winner of the Blog Candy in a seperate post after this one, so good luck everyone!
I met some lovely people yesterday and thank you to RĂ©ne and John for looking after me so well and for the bottle of wine of course! Hello to all the ladies (and a few gentlemen I'm pleased to say!) who came along - everyone was watching with great interest but, strangely, as soon as Igot my camera out, everyone turned away or vanished!!! I'm not the only one who isn't a fan of having my picture taken, though here I am with a rather tidy looking table yesterday - that didn't last long of course!!! We had great fun, with a lot of laughter in between the techniques I was showing. I hope you are all enjoying your new goodies and have raided the juice cartons for thin straws to create the trees for your owl cards! I'll post a step by step guide to "blowing trees" as soon as I can. I hope that I can get down to the store again soon, as everyone made me feel so welcome...by the way...I ended up going to Euston via Liverpool Street, for those of you who were trying to help me out with my journey home!!! Meanwhile, do check out Tim Holtz's blog (link is further down under my blog list) as he has (today) launched a new set of videos that you can watch on there...some great techniques of course.
