Just sending out some bloggy love
First of all we have dinkys-world.blogspot.com which is a blog by8 yr old Charlotte. Yes you heard me correctly.!! 8 yrs old, with a blog full of fabulous things she has made.
In the last post I wrote about Kelvin...well his lovely wife Sarah has written all about our meeting HERE.http://notquitemarthastewart.blogspot.com/ And it seems as though my new name " The Dark Northern Temptress " is catching on fast...thanks Mr Macari for that one, lol.
Giddy Karen has a lovely write up on her rather fabby blog, and she is even giddier as she is on her way to a workshop with Tim.http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/
One of my fave blogs to visit is Alisa Burke and this post is so simple yet effective. It makes me want to jump out of bed and raid all my red paints.
I had a long sleep earlier which was good, but am now wide awake which is not so good, lol. Am going to embark on a marathon cutting out session, in between, runny nose, hacking cough, banging head etc. It's at times like this I am soooooo glad I am single, lol. I've got salmon fillets poaching in the oven and fruity couscous and edename beans courtesy of M & S. How healthy is that for a midnight snack..??? So healthy in fact that I've got Cadbury's Caramel chocolate (large bar) and an 8 pack of Diet Cherry Coke. Tee hee.
Most of my demoing at the show was done in my mahoosive beloved ledger journal. Will seriously cry when this journal is full and am having mild panic attacks already at the thought.!!! If any of you have one hanging around, that you don't want, as if!!!, then you know where to donate it. I will look after it very well, pinky promise.!!!
Here are the pages I was working on...all in various stages of unfinishedness, lol. The backgrounds were all made with a combination of Adirondack Colourwashes (am sooooo in love again), Adirondack Paint Dabbers ( always been in love with these, but heart, heart, heart, the new bottles ) and my new "be still my beating heart" faves, The new Distress stains. Who knew, girlies, who knew.??? And of course my Dylusions stamps, doing what they do best... And for those of you who keep asking me where you can purchase them from....
Here are the wholesalers
UK Personal Impressions
USA Stampers Anonymous and Ranger
If you are a retailer who has recieved delivery of my stamps, let me know and I will link you. And don't forget I just love to see what you do with them.
And I thought I would do a little give away. You remember the artwork, that I made into a commemorative ticket for Tim's visit..?? Well I had a few extra printed just in case of any mishaps etc..and so I thought I would give one away each day until they are gone. I have defaced Tim's face on all of them, lol. He is hilariuous as Elvis and even funnier with a Bob Ross afro..!!! If you fancy owning one you just need to leave me a comment on each days post. At the end of every day I will pick a winner and post it out to you.
All of you going to a workshop with Tim at the Artsy Crafty Event, you are in for a fabulous time. Enjoy yourselves very muchly and remember to breathe..!!
