After all the photos on my last post, this one is going to be picture-less! It's been over a week too which is shocking. This is such a busy time for everyone of course though, myself included, as I am still working on new designs and demonstration samples.
I've been really enjoying "looking" at Tim's twelve tags of Christmas and also seeing pictures of how some of you are interpreting them and being inventive with what stash you have. Just wish I had time to join in, but I'm making mental notes of Tim's latest techniques to use on my demonstrations of course!
Well, what have I been up to since I last posted? On Saturday David and I were at Top Barn Crafts in Wrexham where I was demonstrating. This is (as I have mentioned before) a great spot to visit as, along with Top Barn Crafts, there are gift and clothing shops, cafe, restaurant as well as stunning scenery. It was a very enjoyable day, and I tried to cram in as many techniques as I could. I really find those sort of days challenging (in a good way!) where I am using a certain number of materials and mediums and then have to keep showing new and different ways to use them. David was so engrossed in what I was doing that he didn't take any pictures!!! So, hello to everyone that I met there and thank you to Theresa for organising things so well.
On Sunday I was at Dawn's Design Studio and had a fun day demonstrating as well as helping to make some samples for QVC whilst I was there. They are having a special event next weekend with bargains, make n takes, demonstrations as well as mince pies and mulled wine. Amy and Dawn will be there on Saturday and it will be Dawn and myself on Sunday. Included in other pre Christmas bargains all my Christmas wooden and unmounted stamps are on a special offer now too! I'll also be there the following weekend for my last demonstrations of the year.
This Saturday I'll be up at Dainty Supplies near Chester-Le-Street with lots of differet inking techniques, so pop in if you are in that vivinity.
I did manage to send Heather "something" for her latest swap! I really thought that I wasn't going to manage it and must aplogise to whoever receives my creations as they are probably not up to my usual standard!
