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

Thank you

Hello folks and thank you for all the good wishes sent to Thomas yesterday! I'm pleased to report that he's feeling much better today. He is hardly limping at all now although he is still lifting his paw up when he's sat down....I think he's got used to all the sympathy!
This was him looking all contented this morning....
 .....but this afternoon....well.....I am keeping my eye on these two.....
......talk about looking for trouble! By the way, I can report that Thomas weighed in at 7.4 kg  yesterday (wow!) but the vet said that he's not fat, he's just a "big boy" and he "carries it well"! Now Tara....well....that could be a different matter!
I've not photographed the rest of the samples I made for Stitches yet, but will do so very shortly. I took delivery of a truly enormous box today which contained my cards, tags and canvasses etc as well as all sorts of new products for me to add to my warehouse...er...spare room!
Today I've been working on samples for my fabric painting demonstration at Studio Craftique in Hessle a week tomorrow. Here's a sneaky peek at something I'm part way through.....
.....Dylusions fans may recognise the images!
I'm signing off now so I can watch "An Island Parish" which always cheers me up!

Looking forward to seeing what you are creating with the stamps and paints. I would love to get back to using fabric more so will be keeping an eye out on what you do with that.
Lovely cats, glad Thomas is healing, yep definitely looks like they are spoiling for a tussle x

Looking forward to watching your demo at Studio Craftique next week. As a newbie to crafting I learn so much there.

Hi Lindsay...Like what I see!! I think both your own brand of stamps & Dylusions lend themselves really well to the Deco art Fabric products. Can't wait to get started Saturday. See you soon. Amanda@craftique
