Ooooh busy busy busy.....

The days are just whizzing by and i am surrounded by lots of whooshing noises as deadlines seem to be flying past, lol. I am putting the finishing touches to all my new releases for the trade show in January. It is sooooooooooo exciting to be launching as a signature designer for Ranger, and I want everything to be "just so" and so I am busy dotting every I and crossing every T, and then changing my mind and starting all over again, tee hee. Well it's a woman's prerogative, isn't it.??

Been busy in the studio as well, yesterday found me teaching this canvas.Many of you will know I started my crafting life as a folk art painter, and I love nothing more than introducing others to painting. It is so calming and relaxing. I really need to do more of it to preserve what little sanity I have left..!! Oh okay, too late then, lol.

I got a brill surprise yesterday as Our Ben forgot he had said I couldn't get my grubby little mitts on Tim's new fantabulous boxes. Too late, he brought them in to show me them, (the new delivery had just arrived), and I had them unwrapped, before he could say Beejeezus. Ha ha, look at the expression on his face, too late....they are mine, all mine.

I just had to promise not to deface...sorry, customise...them before this weekends preview. Speaking of which...

Don't forget it is our fabulous Preview day on Saturday 10th December, where you can come along and see all the wonderful workshops we have lined up for you in January, February and March. We have taster workshops going all day long, and I think Our Ben is making me part with some of the 100's of samples I have made over the years. Pop HERE for more info

Here's some sneaky peeks...

How are you doing following Tim's Christmas Tags.??Are you managing to keep up.?? Frikkin fabby aren't they.?? I haven't even put my own spin on the first one yet, so busy I am with my other stuff, but I am storing them and will play as soon as I get a breather.

Don't forget everyday Our Ben is adding bargains into his daily deal. See HERE for more

This is such a funny post. I love the photos, Ben's face is a picture - "oh no, here she goes again!" Can't wait to see how you customise Sir Tim's trinket box. I love the Christmas canvas, it's perfectly folksy.
I've made 7 out of the ten tags so far, I hope to catch up this weekend.
