I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Doubling Up


Doubling up in pain?  Doubling up in laughter?  No, we're doubling up our sneak peeks here today at Words and Pictures.




Scheduling means that I'm in three places at once today: here at Words and Pictures (though only briefly), over at The Artistic Stamper, and sharing my second Guest Design piece at Calico Crafts too.


So here's a little sneak peek of what's going on at The Artistic Stamper - Distress Paints, Inks and Stains and some cracking stamps...






And a little peek at the Calico Crafts project: yummy papers, crackle effect and lots of Treasure Gold...

Take your pick - or if you've got time, it would be wonderful if you could drop in on both of them!  

Places to go, projects to see... I'll leave you in peace for now, except to wish you a wonderful week.

If a man could have half his wishes, he would double his troubles.

Just popped over to both and had a look Alison. Such creativity in both projects. I love the DP background on the hanging, gorgeous colours that have mingled together, and wow for your specimen box. It is full of wonderful goodness, all those textured and aged bits and pieces that are so scrummy. Love it.
