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

Fast, pre-bed post!

Hello all, and almost goodnight! Just thought I'd post a couple of quick things before I retire - up early to get the train down to Norwich in the morning. It's a long journey but a straightforward one with no changes, so I may well be able to get some drawing done as well as my usual nature watching. As it won't be one of the tilting trains, I should be able to draw without my hand slipping too much!
Anyway, I'll be in Jarrold's department store in Norwich city centre from 10am-4pm on Saturday - pretty sure that the craft department is on the third floor. Last time I went there was just before Christmas, so I'm looking forward to having some daylight time to look around the city this time. I have lots of inks, some stamps, Tim Holtz Ideaology bits and bobs, paints etc, so I have lots of tips and techniques to show everyone.
Oh, guess what? I have completed five of my pages for Heather's book swap....no one is more surprised than me that I got them done! I'm pretty happy with them, mainly, although I could think of other ideas as soon as I had committed myself to one or other. Only four more to go! I'm taking four of the pages with me this weekend as they utilise much of what I'll be demonstrating.
Well, my Blog Candy has still not been claimed, so, if it is still unclaimed after the weekend I will draw it again and post a new winner on Tuesday. So, Miss D needs to email me by Monday night or you'll all be in with a chance to win again!
Couple of questions I was asked in comments and emails, so I'll answer them here quickly if I may...My men's silhouette stamps are ref number PICS061 and are available from all PI stockists (check the PI website through my link below my photo to see your nearest stockist). My sister's blog is Heather Fenn-Edwards and is in my blog list in the left sidebar - check out Heather's latest ATC swap with a seaside theme. Places are filling up for the workshops that I have coming up before Christmas, so do be quick if you did want to come along - if you're already booked and haven't been to one of my classes before, do wear an apron! You can bring any of your own tools like scissors, knife, pens etc, but we'll have craft sheets, inks, stamps etc that you need, so don't worry too much. My Christmas toppers and cardstock will be in the shops soon - they co-ordinate with the Christmas character stamps and you can see them on the PI website.
I think that is just about everything, so I am going to have a shower and retire now. Have a great Friday and weekend everyone. Lindsay
