I finally figured out how to download a fresh background for my blog as you can see. It took me a while to choose, but this one matches my text colours, and it's a touch grungy so it suits me fine!
I had a brilliant day at Handmade Heaven in Chorley yesterday; it was so busy that customers could hardly fit in the shop and everyone was very enthusiastic which makes it all worthwhile of course. I was demonstrating the Sakura range and had some converts to the Superpoint pens which look really boring until you realise just how versatile they are - they include an eraser pen which is the "secret weapon" in the box. I was also signing my new book which was fun. So, hello to all the ladies, and one or two very patient gentlemen, and I hope that you are having great fun with your new pens, stamps and books! Congratulations to the two raffle winners as well - I had the honour of drawing the tickets, so blame me if you didn't win!
If you haven't already taken a look at my sister's new blog, do pay a visit - she will be adding more pictures of her wonderful art work soon. Well, that's all for the minute. Had a busy morning so we are going to relax for the rest of the day now....lovely! Lindsay
PS Matthew, our traumatised pigeon, is doing really well now. His tail is coming on a treat and he is coping with his one healthy leg just fine, even managing a few pecks and wing batterings at the others who are after "his" birdseed. What a trouper!
