- Lindsay Mason
- 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: firstname.lastname@example.org

This picture shows his good side and though his wings are folded back here you can just see where his tail used to be. His back and neck feathers are coming through and, if his leg doesn't get infected, I think he may just be the comeback kid!
I have been making sample cards today for my demonstration at Card Craft in Lancaster on saturday, so have got rather sparkly hands now! Yes, the glitter has been wafting around the balmy air and turning plain penguins into little dandies in sparkly black evening dress! Do pop along if you live in the area and...don't forget your ATC's for swapping.
Right, I am off to catch up with a few emails now before a relaxing evening watching a (hopefully) good film. Will post pictures of my latest cards very soon. Lindsay

Now, five things that I enjoy.....
1. Spending a rare day off with David and doing something "non crafty" for a change!
2. The cold side of the pillow on a warm night & an iced lime & soda on a hot day.
3. Tough cryptic crosswords.
4. Making people laugh.
5. Feeding the ducks.
Non bloggers - you could join in by adding five things you enjoy to my comments section!
I may not post for a few days as we may be making the most of my deadline free period to go away for a short break. If we can decide where to go that is! So, I will say cheerio for now. Lindsay

On saturday evening Sarah and I tootled along to the design studio where the remaining demonstrations had been. Paula Pascual and Sheena Douglas were both there along with Dawn of course. We all went out for a lovely meal and then went back to Dawn's for a catch up and to meet the goats (who were, of course, adorable!) and say hello to the doggies. We sat around the kitchen table which was weighed down with card, pens, stamps etc and, of course, Dawn got us all making a card each...well, we tried anyway! It was very funny because we all felt "carded out" and were too embarrassed to show each other our creations!
Here are Sarah and Sheena having a well deserved giggle and Dawn and Paula who both look a little "pixyish" here! The night was vanishing quickly so Sarah's hubby, Ewan, came and collected the two of us and we went back to their house where I was having a sleepover. Good conversation scuppered our plans for a healthy, early night of course! Ewan had baked two trays of delicious brownies for Sarah to give to customers the next day - what a thoughtful husband!
