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

Punch drunk!

Sorry for the terrible post title...I can never resist a good (or do I mean bad?!) pun. I've been using new (and old) Martha Stewart punches the last couple of days, making samples for my demonstration up in Whitley Bay on Saturday. Never been there before, so I am looking forward to seeing the sea and maybe having a paddle! No pictures of my samples tonight as it got a little dark for taking photos when I finally got round to packing up and thinking about taking a few snaps. I'm taking my camera with me this weekend though, so will post some next time. All the other work that I've been busy with over the last couple of weeks is stuff I can't share yet, so no photos there either!
I'm going to be at a brand new store called Paper Cuts - a Slice of Imagination, which is situated in Roxburgh House on Park Avenue. Hope to see some of you there on Saturday. I'm travelling up there tomorrow, so can't wait to breathe in that sea air!
It really feels like Spring is here now....so many crocusses and daffs popping up in the garden, the sun beaming down and the Magpies are building a nest right across from our window. It's almost hard to believe that there is so much turmoil in Japan. It really does feel as though the Earth is fighting back with so many natural disasters as there have been lately. We all feel for the people in Japan and let's hope that the Nuclear disaster can be minimised for all our sakes.
A rather depressing note to finish this short post on, but I will sign off for now and be back after my trip to Whitley Bay. Lindsay

Hi Lindsay. I just want to say how much I enjoyed your demo at Whitley Bay yesterday, you are so talented. I played for about 3 hours after I got home & was reasonably pleased with the result - nowhere near as good as yours though! Hope you had a good journey home & that your feet have thawed out after your paddle.
