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

Here it comes....

.....even near the coast the white stuff is making its presence known. I just took this photo from the back of the house and it looks like it's going to stick overnight.
Part of me thinks "hoooorrrrraaaaayyyyyy!!!!" and the other part thinks "oh no"!
It's very, very cold and the heat is staying on high despite two pairs of socks and a warm cardigan. I had a lovely furry hot water bottle in bed with me last night, that is to say Thomas, and they keep taking turns as to who sits on my knee now. Here's Tara going for the intellectual look.......
 Well, just a quick post tonight to say hello and keep warm. I'm busy with new designs at present but will be starting work soon on samples using my new stamps ready for Stitches trade show in February, so will share some sneaky peeks in the coming days.

Thankfully we've only got a light smattering at the moment. But worse is forecast. I feel like burying myself under the duvet all day. Looking forward to seeing your samples, using your new stamps. :) Stay warm. Pxx
