The best news in the whole wide world times 2 (with knobs on) !!!





Da Dahhhhhhh...!!!!  Yes its time to unveil the members of the Altered Originals Design Team. We have chosen a select few who we feel can bring their own style and specialness to the products.

Starting with, non other than, the fabulously talented Dina Wakley.  She is the queen of inkyness and only owns about 300 bottles of ink and therefore is desperate to get her hands on some more...lol.

Another stunning artist is the delightfully quirky Kate Crane. Her eclectic collage style is greatly admired by many.

And finally non other than the gorgeous screwball, Bezzie Su.... Can't link to her blog as she hasn't got one...At the moment...hint hint Su...lol. She has a tremendous knack for looking at things unlike any other sane person...!!!

Oh and me...but you already know my style...a bit of pratting around, mixed with a slice of slapdash, a great big dollop of passion and a pinch of eclecticness. Leave to simmer for an hour, then blast with a bit of Northern soul...Serve with a pinch of salt..!!!

So there we go , 4 totally different styles for you to see. My design team has no rules, no conditions, no must do's. They just do what they want, when they want, if they want...lmao

Now for Dragon news.. Many of you are extremely concerned at the moment about the whereabouts of the kidnapped dragon. Well he is safe and sound at Ranger Headquarters.. The lovely Anneliese sent me some photos back to re-assure me.

Dragon had apparantly tried to make a grab for freedom , and was found a little disorientated in the grass.


Anna liese tempted him back with a nice cold drink....


and a few nibbles...


Predictably he was soon putty in her hands...


To celebrate he treated them all to a night out


But got a little lairy on the old cocktails...


He was soon paying for it the next morning with a banging headache. And had to be escorted around all day by Mario.



Rumour has it that he will be reunited with me in Chicago....Yayyyy....

Right I,m off to phone the babe and then its The Land of Nod for me...

Enjoy xx
