The week that was...

Last Friday the gorgeous Kaz Hall was teaching at the studio and gracing me with her presence at Reaveley Towers. Those of you who know her will know she isn't renowned for her culinary skills, but I have to say she makes a mean fish finger butty.

She is also rather good at providing early Christmas presses...Clock this fabulous bible from the 1800's which I will treasure for ever.

Monday came with the realisation that it was time for a trim lol.

 And also the day to celebrate number 2 son's 29th birthday. And unbelievably it looks as though I was wearing the same outfit in all the photos. I wasn't but it does look it. lol.

After a hectic couple of days it was time to fly back over the pond for my next stint in the States. To be honest I was quite looking forward to getting away from home. Things are a bit tough at the mo, with memories thrust at me right left and centre!

As usual I love my long flights and layovers and use them to catch up with my journaling. Heres a few I did on the plane.

I am currently in Houston Texas at a retailer show, Its great to see so many familiar faces in my class tonight. I have two more classes tomorrow and then demo time on Sunday.

Enjoy xx

Happy Birthday to son number 2!

Love your journal pages.

I'm curious. When you journal on the plane, does anyone ever ask you about what your're doing? Do they watch as you journal? Does that bother you? Love your pages. Linda E.
