Did you.....???????????????????

Did you join in the hop..??

How frikkin fantastic was that...???

My over is truly whelmed, my gob is truly smacked and my flabber is well and truly ghasted.!!!!!!

I can't even begin to express how I feel at seeing all the fabulous work out there from all you lovely bloggers. I expected to see cool projects, but I never expected to see such quality of projects. I don't mean that as it sounds lol. I am just totally amazed and humbled by the amount of time and effort that went into all the projects, and I can't thank you enough. You are all my heroes and I salute you, one and all. I visited each and everyone of you at least twice, but unfortunately Blogger doesn't seem to want me to comment to some of you, despite numerous tries. Please accept my deepest apologies if you were one of the blogs with no comment, it wasn't intentional as I found you all fantastic. It was also a complete honour to see such love for Art from the Heart out there, thank you.

Extra special thanks go the absolutely wonderful bundle of wonderfulness....The gorgeous Janet... who organised the whole event for us, co-ordinated all the hops, and put right any of the glitches that popped up. You are a little star and I love you very muchly.

If you haven't yet had a tour round the hops, you seriously need to!! Go HERE for the start and to be totally frikkin inspired like never before... You have until Sunday 11th Sept to send in your answers. If you have already been round the hop, why don't you do a rerun and really take in and savour the fantasticness of the projects on offer, trust me when I tell you it's even better the second time around...

I am sat in my bad having a cheeky vimto and eating pistachio nuts whilst recovering from a fantastic beginners Art Journaling course. I have just taught the most fantastic group of women, and seen some fantastic work. They can all now proudly say that they are not only Art Journalers, but in fact artists.!!! We shared many experiences over the weekend, laughter, sadness, many emotions, painting, eating, sharing, blossoming, and bonding. In fact the only thing we didn't share was Jean Luca ,aka Derek, the Italian waiter as I wasn't there, and I feel it only fair not to spill the beans. Because as you know, what happens in the studio...stays in the studio...lol.



Ok I am going to enjoy my last free evening for the distant future, as tomorrow I will be chained to my desk, with QVC work, workshop previews, Ranger top secret stuff, and shop samples. I have my supplies of  bottled water....forgot to mention to you all I have finally kicked my habit of 10 cans a day of Diet Dr Pepper.. Yes sirree I have indeedy, took some doing but I got there.!!!! So I am stocked up with water, bagels, Quality Street and Ginger nuts...

Enjoy xx
