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...

A couple of things...

Hello everyone.  Thank you again for your visits during last week's hectic schedule.  It'll be slightly quieter round here this week (I think... that's the plan, at least), but I just wanted to give you a little heads up on a couple of things.


Firstly, as you may have spotted, there is a Creative Team Callout at The Artistic Stamper.  All the details are here... just drop Jennie an email if you're interested.  It's a fabulous team to be part of - you just have to love stamping!!





Next, thank you for the fantastic feedback on the new Calico Craft Parts laser cuts... if you missed seeing them in action, take a look here.

As well as the flourishes and corners, there are now beautiful plaques available too (and more designs on the way).  They really are lovely to work with - and you can bet they'll be putting in more appearances soon.


And lastly, I'm doing my usual Tuesday over at Artistic Outpost - if you missed this starry number the first time around, you can catch up with it here.

All done!  Have a lovely week everyone.

Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense.
