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

Catching up

Hello all, it was a busy weekend. On Saturday I was at Reams in Derby, where it was a lovely busy day with a lot of fun thrown in. When I was leaving I was given this lovely bunch of flowers as a thank you...how nice was that? Excuse the state of the board that the vase was standing on whilst I took the picture...it's one of my workboards and very inky and painty! On Sunday I was at The Craft Room in Garners Garden Centre for another busy, and very hot day. Hello to all the lovely ladies and gents who came along and welcome to my new blog followers too!

I haven't forgotten about the quiz by the way, and will be posting it straight after this. I had planned to do add it on Monday, but got asked to do some last minuted work which tied up my time. So, get your thinking caps at the ready!

I have updated my demonstration and workshop dates at the left, so do check those out. As far as workshops go, I'll be at Topaz on Sunday 1st May where we'll be making cards with a "Spring into Summer" theme in the morning, and "Steampunk cards and tags" (round two!) in the afternoon...there have been lots of requests for more of the Stempunk theme, so I aim to please! To book either of these, just call Topaz crafts directly.

On Sunday 15th May, Amy Shaw and myself will be hosting a full day of cardmaking in Lower Darwen, Blackburn. Amy will be teaching the morning workshop and I'll be teaching the afternoon one...as mine is likely to be the messy one! The cost for the full day is £30, and if you're interested, please email me on ljm.design@ntlworld.com for more details. Hope to see you there, it will be a lot of fun!

On Friday I'll be trolling down to Eastbourne to demonstrate at ESK on Saturday. I'm sure I'll be fitting a paddle in there somewhere, as I'm staying over on Saturday before coming back on Sunday. Hope to see lots of my southern friends there!

Meanwhile, you just have time to join in my sister's ATC swap....great fun and you have the chance to win Heather's gorgeous Cabinet Card. Yummy!

Okay, I think I had better get that quiz posted!

Hi Lindsay, your flowers are beautiful :-)I've just sent you an e-mail about the workshop. I'm sure you'll be surprised to know I've already booked your other at Dawn's! Looking forward to seeing you and David and Amy very soon. Big hugs and lots of love to you both. S xxxx
