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

Feathered helpers

Hi folks, and especially Joanne, who has started a new blog dedicated to our animal crafting helpers. Well, like Joanne, we lost our beloved pusscat, Cherry, some years ago, but still enjoy the company of slightly less domesticated pals.
Here's a couple of pictures of some help I was getting this morning from my feathered friends.... ....mmmm, they don't look too enthusiastic today. I think they are just deciding what to do............they seem a bit distracted to me......honestly, a bit of bird seed and they lose all creative concentration! Lol!
Do pop over to Joanne's new blog on http://craftingpets.blogspot.com/ and you can link from there to this fun new site. Well, I hope so - all these URL's, links etc do confuse me rather easily! Hope to see more crafting pets later today. Lindsay

You are lucky having pigeons outside your window - all I get is a cheeky (and sometimes scary) magpie peeping in at me through the skylight

Those birds are lucky they are not in our garden. Our two dogs are bred to put birds up and they both consider that no bird is allowed on the ground at any time. The squirrels are not allowed either. I do feed the birds but I have to make sure the dogs are not out when the birds come in.
