April Hello

Hello to all out there in blog land.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine!!! and all that spring brings.

Life is busy busy busy at the moment. (sorry this next bit is a bit newsy!!!)

In February I was told I was going to be made redundant - It had been on the cards for some time but it still came as a bit of a shock.

Anyway I have been looking for another job over the last 2 years and have applied for quite a few jobs and not had a reply from any of them. Anyway I applied for a part time job in a new craft shop in a garden centre and got one of the 4 part time jobs going. My old company have decided they want me to stay until they close possibly in September so now I have 2 part time jobs and an A level art to complete but hey ho it is keeping me busy. Unfortunately I have not had any time to play recently - well not at home anyway, I have done some demos at the craft shop and made a few cards crafting and being paid to play!! - oh sorry and being paid to sell products and demonstrate - such hard work it is too - lol!!!! I have uploaded some photos of the workshop I did at Art From The Heart workshop at Harrogate - it was lovely to spend the day there and play with all the lovely Dylusion ink sprays and learn lots of new techniques from the master Dyan herself it was good fun and I loved the little book we made - hope you like it. Well folks I have promised myself I am going to TRY and get on here at least once a month.

Thanks for looking - I hope to be back before Easter but if not here is a card I made this week at work - we had sold out of Happy Easter Peel offs but had lots of alphabets so made this out of scraps.



  1. Lovely projects and I am glad you have at least found part time jobs! I am happy to hear from you it has been quite a long time since we heard from you!
