Better late than never...!!!

I know its weeks late but here are all the piccies from the fabulous Dina Wakley weekend.

Heres the fabby Teresa and her gorgeous cup cakes.

which went down a treat as you can see.

The classes were full to bursting.

And some fabulous work was produced.

some tools of the trade

lunch always goes down a storm

Pam and The Babe behind the scenes.

Dina was an absolute darling and painted me a canvas for the shop.

How cool is that..??

And here we are with the lovely Jude, who only had an 8 hr drive to get to us.!!

Little did I realise that what I presumed was jet lag was, in fact, the start of my illness, so apologies to everyone there for not being my usual self.The day after this photo was my first hospital stay!! I am getting there slowly, with slowly being the operative word. But I am still behaving myself (ish), lol.

Enjoy xx

At last......

 I would like to say a big thankyou to all of you for your well wishes .  I have had Pylefrinitis (sorry Bezzie if I've spelt it wrong.!!).. They think I picked up a virus on the plane back from Chicago which played havoc with my dodgy immune system. It really knocked me for 6, and apparantly the 2nd hospital admission was just in the nick of time and luckily meant the difference between ACU and ICU.  I have been prodded and poked, had 5 different intravenous antibiotics, gallons of fluid, plenty of Morphine, run out of veins, slept slept and slept some more. And I am now on strict instructions to rest and recuperate. And guess what I am actually behaving myself. The Babe hasn't had to sit on me or tie me to a chair. I even spent one night slobbed in front of the telly !!! We'll see how long it lasts eh,

I haven't had a chance yet to shout about the latest set of 8, brand new spray inks from our Altered Originals range. 8 more gorgeous, lush, translucent, jewel like inks to spritz, splodge and spray. The first 8 went down such a storm that we just had to release more. We,ve already sold out twice and are on our third delivery so they are proving just as popular.

You can buy the whole set HERE





Postbox Red

Vanilla Custard


Warm Leather

All the inks are available individually HERE

Our spritzer for you to make your own custom colours - HERE

And if you don't have them already you can also get  Set 1 HERE

I will get some examples etc up as soon as I can, but I am now nearly 4 wks behind schedule, with instructions to rest and take things easy...!!!!! Hilarious...!!! I am knee deep in stamp designs, workshops for the Autumn/Christmas preview, paperwork, studio samples, magazine articles, not to mention a few secret projects up my sleeve.!! I am also surrounded by all the fabulous new goodies that have appeared in the shop. Our Ben keeps sending it all home for me to peruse, lol. There are gorgeous papers and to die for stencils (perfect with my inks) from Prima. The must have at least 2 of each of the new Graphic 45 papers, not to mention their new embellishments. And today I am surrounded by all the new 7gypsies release, and what a release it is!! I will give you previews of everything as soon as I can tear myself away from it all, lmao. I am itching to get playing with it all, just haven't the energy. Never mind my brain is buzzing with ideas for when I do.

Well think I need another lie down, lol.

Enjoy xx
