Here is this weeks upcoming classes.
First is the Technique album on the 30th Sept - 10-3pm
This is a variation of the very popular class I taught at scrap-a-ganza Holland and Uk. The cover comprimises 9 tiles decorated with different techniques. Crackle paint, Ultra thick, Embossing, Pearls and Paint effects to name a few.
Secondly is the Paper Artsy Housebook and Tag on Friday the 3rd of October - 10-3pm
These samples were featured in the paint effects workshop in Craft Stamper. Much admired and requested as a class, so here they are. You will be combining lots of paint effects with 7gypsies eclectic hardware.
You can book these classes HERE or by ringing the studio on 01423 873739, but be warned the technique ablum has very limited places!!
I would just like to say a big thanks to Claudine Hellmuth for giving me a shout out on her blog - hope to see you in January sweetie, loving the studio line. Pop over and see her at www.claudinehellmuth.blogspot.com .
Thanks Dy xx

I had to judge all the challenges - a job i hate because the standard is always so high it's really hard to just pick one. One of my favourites was a mini book made out of a pair of earings - yes thats right earings. Really ingenious - I can feel a class coming on.

I have spent all day packing kits for the McDuff retreat, really looking forward to it. It's back to school time in our area and so all my kids classes start again this week. First lot will be arriving in about 20 mins - yey - have really missed them. This term we are making the wooden houses. Some of the kids are doing them for Christmas and others are doing gingerbread houses! Mind you as usual a lot of the girls have requested pink Blonde Moments houses to put on their dressing tables and to fill with bits and bobs. I'll keep you informed with pics of there progress.
I'd forgotten about this pair until I went routing around last night. These were an old favorite and with a lower heel much easier to last on all day.

Countdown to McDuff
Only 5 more sleeps until the Scottish retreat I am teaching at. I'm not sure if there are any more places left, but if you are fed up with the miserable weather, come and treat yourself. The projects are on my earlier August posts.
How about these killer beauties. When I've got these on I'm over 6ft and have to walk carefully - like a lady you know! Patent is massive this year and these shoes always make me laugh because I feel as though I've covered them in Glossy Accents!
