This is the life...!!!!!

Busy, busy, busy... Sos I am a bit sporadic with my blogging but I keep running out of time whilst I am having a life. When hes away I can stay up all night painting, journaling, blogging. I can exist on 3/4 hrs sleep, I can work the clock round and pretend I am invincible...lmao. But at the moment I am living a life, just like the rest of you..!!!

Ben released my next set of downloads last night and Emmi has had trouble keeping up with them today, lol, you  certainly love them..!! Here they are in all their gorgeousness. You can order them HERE











Heres another entry for the last challenge.




Thats it now that challenge is over, I,ll tell you the winner tomorrow. New challenge as of today.  Using at least one of the new downloads, create me something, send me a pick and you are in with a chance of lovely goodies..

We have some new weekend dates for you. I cant keep up with demand for my weekends, lol. So you will need to be quick off the mark.

Here they are...

An action packed weekend full of fabby classes, gorgeous food, luvvly,luvvly people and enough laughter to have you splitting your sides.

All class materials, food, snacks and drink whilst at the studio are included in the price. A list of hotels will be sent to you on request.

Sat 10th & Sun 11th April - Mini Ranger U Technique Weekend - 9-5pm - Part1

Now I know you are all jealous when you hear what goes on at The Ranger University in New Jersey. It is a fabulous action packed 3 days of techniques galore. Downfall = you have to be invited to attend and its a blooming long way to go. As Ranger's Senior Educator in Europe, I have decided to bring you a taste of it here. Two full days for you to choose from or treat yourself and opt for both. Techniques will include paint effects, Ultra thick embossing,beeswax, B/M pearl pigments, distress techniques, Claudine Hellmuth studio line , alcohol inks and many more.
You will leave at the end of each day with a tag book filled with know how and inspiration after using some of the best quality products in the business.. I am known for specialising and teaching techniques and masterclasses. They may look difficult but they are as easy as pie, you just need showing. So come on what are you waiting for???
Lunch and snacks provided   book HERE


Fri/Sat/Sun 30th April 1/2nd May - Beginners Art Journal Weekend - 7.30-10pm, 9-5pm,9-4pm

How do you fancy a whole weekend of satisfying and healing your own soul..?? It is aimed at newbies to the addiction but is suitable for anyone to come. We will start on the Fri evening by making our journals from scratch, eating pizza and drinking wine. Saturday we will be exploring paint techniques, colour and emotion,, doodling, collage, writing techniques, crying ( oh yesssss if its not me its you lot...!!! ) , eating, eating, eating, reflecting, sucking blue lollipops and generally having a fabuloso, indulgent, enjoyable time. Sunday we will be swirling it all together, with step by steps and challenges to get your creative juices flowing. All this for just £120 - hows that for a bargain. The only food not provided is on Sat evening, cos I will have gone home and passed out..!!!  Book HERE

Fri/Sat/Sun 21/22/23rd May  Intermediate Art Journals 7.30-10pm, 9 - 5pm, 9-4pm

This is the weekend for all of you who are hooked on art journaling. It is suitable for those of you who have attended the beginners weekend or any of my journaling classes. We will be going into it more in depth, learning lots of new techniques and generally having a ball....



For all my regular journalers I have slipped in an extra class, Sun 13th Dec  10 - 3 pm. We will be combining it with a riotous Christmas party of carol singing and stuffing ourselves with mince pies. We will also be starting on the round robin, so get yourselves booked on..

Today was the first day of Ranger 2. Due to illnesss we were down to 6 people, so they were flying through it, which is great because I can teach them more in the time. They are a great bunch and I am in my element, cause I just love teaching techniques. To me they are the best workshops you will attend. Today we were doing colourwash and ultra thick embossing.











Here are the girlies...Stephanie, Anneliese and Sue.




Sarah, Sharon and Steff.




Right I have salmon pasta, garlic bread and salad all waiting for me. Yup the little babe has come up trumps with his cooking again. You never know, I might just keep this one.. Lmao.





Enjoy xx
