I,ve been making kits all morning for Saturdays workshop. This is what they look like.
And this is the finished product.
There are still a few places left. If you fancy joining us you can book HERE.
We still have the odd place left for Dina, due to a cancelled booking.
We have one place left on the 3 day bundle...HERE
One place on the Friday...HERE
Two places on the Saturday...HERE
Heres some of the work I produced with her last time. I just frikkin loved her workshops, I learnt sooo much, I was like a sponge and just soaked it all up. She is a fabulous teacher, so down to earth, just one of the lads really..!! lmao.
I,ve got some new additions in the studio, purely decorative and to add to the overall ambience of the place...(ooooh get me with my poshness..!!!!). As many of you know we have gone for a vintage, retro feel and this first item fits perfectly. I have been coveting this piece for a long, long time and I finally have it within my grubby little grasp... It is an original set of work lockers and I frikkin heart them.
We,ve cleaned them up and we just need to give them a few finishing touches and they can go in the shop. I am going to use them to display art. What do you think to them..???
The second items are of newer origin, but still fit in with all the retro objects we also have. I just couldn't resist this set of suitcases........
Or this trunk and set of boxes, lmao....
I originally bought them for home, but Our Ben spotted them and loved them just as much...!!! So did I just give in and not put up much of a fight for my beloved acquirements...??? No I just sweetly and calmly let him take them to display...Are you shocked..???? Well I,ll let you into a secret. When I let him have them, I was straight in the car and back round to buy them all again...ha ha .. but don't let on will you, he'll have my guts for garters again..!!
Ooh just had another delivery of the fabuloso Stampotique stamps. No matter how many we order they very often don,t even make it to the shelves. So I thought I would take a pic whilst they were still around. They can be ordered HERE
I,ve noticed for quite a while now that many of you are partaking in the WOYWW (Whats On Your Workspace Wednesday), that Julia from the Stamping Ground started just over a year ago. The idea is you upload a picture of your workspace on a Wednesday, link it back to her blog and have a look at what the others (90 at last look) have been up to. Some people are spotless and others look like a bomb has hit with many in between. I have never managed to partake in it, due to whatever excuse will come into my head at the time, lol. Mine is actually in quite good order today so here we go..!!
This is one end of 5 workspaces, yes 5, I like to spread lol. There are lots of 7gypsies goodies that I am playing around with, the sample from tomorrows class, an empty packet of mango slices, a package from All Saints, my latest addiction - Marmite rice cakes - frikkin love them..!!! 2 Bind it alls for tonight, a bottle of French Rose Champagne and a jar of Bramble jelly. I know , I know what your're going to say. It all seems quite normal to me...lmao...
The other side has a can of Red Bull, my inky journals, my wooden bangles, a tin of Mulligatawny soup ( ooooph ), the latest copy of gay magazine reFRESH ( this monthe issue is full of big half naked rugby players, but thats obviously not why I bought it *innocenntly whistling and crossing fingers behind back*, I bought it for the serious features and to see if it was suitable for your perusal..!!!!) Honest..!! Trust me... my bezzie's a doctor remember...lmao.
Ok what else is there..? lots of card for tonights kids class, the kits for Saturday, some empty trays, from a quick burst of sorting out, gaffer tape and a pile of Huggies packs. So there we have it...eclectic or what..?? And I promise you nothing was deliberately placed there, it all just found its way on there this morning because it was totally clear after last nights class.!!!
So, onto another page from my inky journal.
The backgrounis a combination of Distress inks, Adirondack Dabbers, Adirondack Colourwash, Crafters workshop template and Stampotique background stamps. Everythin else is from my latest download sheets Ephemera 2 range.
Well I,ve got music blasting out from Soul Class 66 which I tend to have on all day long.
In their own words.....
"Soul Class 66 24/7 Online Rhythm & Soul Radio Station playing the Finest in Northern Soul, Latin, Modern, Soul Jazz, R&B and Mod Grooves.Soul Class 66 has been broadcasting Since June 2007 playing the Best in Lesser Knowns, Classics, Album only Tracks and A&B Sides. also Previously Unreleased CD only Songs.

I love it, as well as playing some cracking tuuuuuuuunes, it tells you the title, artist, duration of record and, if applicable, which album it is available on..!! Give it a try you just never know you might become hooked..
I,ll leave you with one of my faves at the moment. I just can,t get enough of this, so much so, I had to frikkin go and buy 3 of Betty Wright's albums, lol.
