More adventures at Whimsodoodle...

...and, amazingly enough I remembered to take photos of last nights class. We had a blast.

Even I managed to get a few underway!!!!

 Here are some of the finished tags

Thank you to all the fabulous ladies at all the classes who jumped out of their comfort zone, especially those who were terrified of using a sewing machine, mentioning no names…Christy!!!!

Next week I will be at SHE scrapbooks in the Villages, Florida. I will be there Tues, Wed and Thurs and it would be great if you could join me.

Here's a couple of pages that I was working on whilst flying across the pond.

Enjoy xx

My adventures so far...

I am here in sunny Florida with the fabulous Jill. Love her so much. Staying with her is a joy and one of the 3 place in the US I like to call home, lol. How lucky am I. Two homes in England  and three in America!!!  I like to think of myself as a treasured house guest, but in reality I am, probably, more of a squatter he he.

Unfortunately I seem to have brought the rain. Not just a fine mist either more like a frikkin monsoon, lol. Sorry about that.

But just look at this fantastic sunset from the other evening.

I am here at Whimsodoodle in St Petersburg, teaching stitched canvas classes and having a fabulous time. Unfortunately, so far I haven't taken many photos at all :-( . But we have had full classes bursting with creativity and fun.

How cool is this welcome? But who is this polished lady on the sign??

Sunday was the stitched canvas journal

After class we did a bit of shopping at Target, where they had the biggest selection of Monster High dolls I have ever seen. It was agonising deciding which ones I needed and which to leave behind. Before you all judge, they are for inspiration not for playing !!!! lmao...

Before the class started on Monday evening I had a visitor. The lovely Mary, after finishing the Sunday class, had rushed home to make this layout of her day. That was so lovely of her.

How (ab)fabulous is this. I added the Patsy and Eddie tags, lol.

Thank you Mary, you are a doll.

Monday nights class was once again packed with excited ladies and once again I forgot to take any photos until the end.

The class was stitched canvas Christmas decorations.

Works in progress.

I have one more class this evening and we do have a few seats still available. This is what we will be making, stitched canvas guardian girl tags.

If you would like to join us please call  727-827-4911 to reserve a place. Beginners welcome.

I own all the delusional spays and journals but have not tried the stamps. They are hard to find here, but if I could get my hand on them I know they would all be my faves! I love the seeing all your artwork and colors used. I also have four children that absolutely think your the coolest artist around that can't keep there hands off all my dylusional products­čśŐ! Thanks for all the great inspiration !!


So excited for you... you just keep growing woman ! LOL !! Love the colorful life and the Fancy face in wood woohoo !! Love having your cool stamps ... any of them... makes me feel artistically powerful ! :)


What a great release! I adore Clearly the Right Words. I'm working on a journal to give to my mom & this stamp set is just what I need for some of the pages.

Favorites: fancy face and clearly borders

Oh Dyan. I am so I love with all your stamps, stencils, colors. Everything. And the paper towels too. What a brilliant idea. Your videos are priceless. I love the fact that some of your stamps are smaller for my card making, although I've used the large ones anyway. It's all good. And now rubber on wood also. Fabulous. The doodles and borders are my favorites, but then, so are the words. I wish I could afford them all!

Enjoy xx

Yayy…My September Product release...

…is here!! whoop whoop 

I have been asked time and time again for my stamps in different sizes, and here they are.

This size is fabulous to use in the smaller journal and perfect for cardmakers.

The next release really excites me. We have released some of my most popular images on wood. I have been a stamper for a very long time and there is nothing like a wood mounted stamp.
Again, these are different sizes to the originals for versatility of use. And just wait till you use the alphabet !!!!

Love word

Funky Border

Skip Quote


Wings Quote

Alpha Set

Amongst the Stars

Colourful Life

So there you go, I hope you love them.

They should be hitting the stores shortly.

I have some to give away. If you fancy owning any leave me a comment telling me which are your favourite!!!

I am busy running around like a mad woman as I leave for my next tour in two days. My next post will include the stores and the dates I will be there. Hope to see some of you on my travels.
