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

My Friday post

I'm just popping on to wish everyone a lovely weekend and to say that we're really looking forward to seeing everyone who's coming to tomorrow's workshop.
Everything's prepped and packed (I hope!) so we're ready for a fun, but busy day. I'll post pictures of the day next week. David will be multitasking as chauffeur, glamorous assistant, official photographer and kettle boiler....there'll be nothing left for me to do!

Here is a piccie of cheeky Thomas overseeing that I have put everything into the bags and checking my emails. He pretends to be a tough cookie by the way, but he dithers about every time he goes out or comes in, as he has an obsession with staring at the corners of doorways when the doors are opening or closing! Not sure what he expects to see, but he is apt to jump out of his skin if he's going through a doorway....what a hero!
And here is a photo of last Saturday's demonstration at Card-io in Wigan - it was a busy old day. Hello to everyone that popped by. I think the weather is due to break this weekend, which may be no bad thing as, at least here, it's dull but airless. I just fancy a bit of rain to freshen things up!
Finally, thank you so much to Joanne who sent me the loveliest card to wish us well with the new workshops. It was so thoughtful and it's a beautiful card which I'll share with you next week.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Loving the photo of Thomas. Isn't it funny how pets can act big and tough but be totally the opposite? Our Max (all 30 k of him) is actually a big softy who is terrified of loud noises and his bark is def. worse than his bite.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
Hugs xx
