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

Last demonstrations before Christmas!

I am all set for my last demonstrations of this year and will be at Dawn's studio tomorrow and Sunday.....just hoping that the weather doesn't worsen overnight - even I felt cold today, and I never feel cold! Amy will be there too, so do pop in and say hello if you are nearby. I've made some "quickie" Christmas ATC's to give away "whilst stocks last" as they say! LOL!
I did my first Christmas shopping yesterday...yes, my first! I went into town and about an hour in to my trip it began to snow quite heavily and went bitterly cold. It made me quicken the pace that's for sure! Today I've been making cards and have posted them out, so am finally catching up with myself for the moment - though I've just been given a list of "things to do" (quite an exciting one!) which already runs into 2011!
This Sunday will be the fifth anniversary of when we lost little Cherry, though it feels a much shorter time than that, and, as Joanne said earlier this week about their beloved Toby, she is never forgotten. I'm reading a book at the moment called "The cat who went to Paris" which I can recommend to any cat lovers out there. The author always disliked cats until he was presented with a Scottish Fold kitten and was instantly and completely smitten! There are two sequels to this one, so I shall be searching them out. Joanne, if you haven't read it I will keep my copy for you after Christmas as it will especially appeal to you.
Kym - I'm afraid that I haven't had the card that you sent me. I've asked at the studio, but nobody has seen it - I'll let you know if it turns up, but thank you anyway for the kindness. Jacquie and Glen - thank you for your lovely Christmas card which I got on Sunday, it's very classy!
Well, I have a busy couple of days ahead and then two days to finish my shopping and make a few cards that I am hand delivering before spending Christmas at my parents'. If I don't get chance to post again before then, I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas and let's hope that next year is a more positive one for all of us. Lindsay

I would love to read that book so thank you for thinking about me. The weather stopped the Beverley trip but I may just get chauffered to your demo if I play my cards right. If not, a very, very happy Christmas to both you and David. xxxx

Mmm think I may have to read the book too. Thinking of you with the Cherry Anniversary. I still think of Tai every day so know where you are coming from.
Wow it must have been fabby Christmas Shopping with the snow falling.
Well I am so unorganised this year so have sent hardly any cards and if it wasn't for the kids wouldn't have a tree up!!! Yeah my middle name is now "Scrooge" LOL

Hope You and David have a Wonderful Christmas and a Fabby 2010
