The countdown is on.....

Yayy....hope you are all ready and raring to go for the weekends activities.... It is a bit of a mad house in here today, but amazingly I am a vision of calm and loveliness. I refuse to spend my time getting stressed. What gets done, gets done, and what doesnt, doesn't...Simples....

I have finished designing the Make and Takes which have turned into mini workshops.I wanted to do something with a bit more substance this time around, so thats what I did. They are priced at £4 a workshop, bookable on each day.

This is a wooden tag, painted with Claudine Hellmuth paints. Stamped with Stampotique, watercoloured images, doodling and a bit of extra collage thrown in as well.

These are card tags that live in their own co-ordinated pockets. A mix of my downloads ( including some newbies, to be released Monday..!!!), Stampotique and Wendy Vecchi stamps, and Tim's new Distress ink colours.

A simple but effective accordion tag book using the gorgeously fabby Domestic Goddess papers and tags from Graphic 45.

And last but not least, a gorgeous, gorgeous tag using Tim's Distress inks, 7gypsies stamps, my downloads, 7gypsies and Idea-ology embelishments, and Blonde Moment papers.

I had great fun this morning making a ginormous pocket watch for the White Rabbit...How cool is this..??? It will definitely remain a fixture in the studio afterwards.

I recieved this lovely card today from the lovely Jayne and her Mum Doreen. I just love it, right up my street, thanks girly

The gorgeous frizzling ball of fuzzleness, Marie came in this morning and set to work prepping and painting the gallery wall, and my painting wall. She did a cracking job in no time , and we managed to get some of the display boards up. Its starting to look more like home every minute...

Any idea what this might be...??? I am in the middle of 3 of them....No - can't guess, well I,m not telling you, till tomorrow, lol.

Soooooo, its 12.10am here in the studio and I still have tons to do before I'm back here at 7am..!!!!  So hope to see you all over the weekend. Heres my little run down of my gorgeous girlies who will be appearing over the weekend.



The lovely Katie

fizzling Marie

Pocket Rocket Kirsty Wiseman

and of course the delectable Bezzie Su

On tea and cup cakes, we have the giggling girlies, Giddy and Giddier.

Tombola is manned by the angelic Anita.

The Goddess and the Resident bit of Glamour, will be socialising, selling raffle tickets and generally keeping a watchful eye on the proceedings.

Making brief appearances and checking you don't take all the glue sticks, will be the most Gorgeous Granddaughter in the whole world, Maisie Lilly... She didn,t quite get the theme of the weekend and is coming as a knight, with sword and shield..lmao...

Sunday sees the arrival of sexy Susie, who rather apallingly couldnt secure the day off on Saturday. She will be reliving tutors, providing me with tea and headache pills, swanning around in heels and generally looking effortlessly gorgeous....

Also Mr Unbribeable will be back from his Rugby commitments to keep an eye on the proceedings, and make sure I am behaving myself ( as if..!!)

Sunday maybe a little quieter than usual to start with as many of the Fallen Angels are reuniting at mine on Sat night.  There will be much hilarity and gossip whilst partaking in a few Desperados, woop woop..!!! I,m hoping that they will get real fed up of stepping over all the flat packs in the middle of the room and decide to give me a hand putting it all together..!!! What do you reckon my chances are..???  I'll keep you informed.

Enjoy xx
