Two videos for you

Hi lovelies, the other week when I was in Phoenix, at Tim and Marios, we made some quick info videos for you.

The first is about my new paint pens. 

Now I really love these but I have noticed that a few people are being a bit heavy handed with them. They have an extremely fine point, the finest point I have ever seen on a PAINT pen.When you depress the nib you  have to give the pen time for the paint to slowly feed up into it. It just takes a little patience because paint is thicker than ink. Also my paint is quick drying so sometimes it will dry on the nib. rubbing it over a damp baby wipe will remove the skin and the pen will write again.

The second video is introducing my latest paint colours.

three vibrant jewel colours
Pure Sunshine
Polished Jade 
Funky Fuchsia

one neutral
Slate Grey

two earthtones
Ground Coffee
Chopped Pesto

Enjoy xx

Tales from my travels...

From the tranquil calm of Cancun to the manicness of California!
I was demoing, for Stampers Anonymous, at The Carson Show. It was so busy I didn't get chance to take many photos, just a messy table at the end of the day, lol.

But!!!!! We did get time to go to Downtown Disney, of course.

Where we proceeded with the annual tradition of lets get Dyan in a Disney hat !!!!

They just aren't for me lol
 But Mr Stampers Anon himself, the lovely Theodore looks fabulous !!

Now this is more like it!!

I might have just have purchased a new teaset!!

A good time was had by all.

Was great to catch up with Teesha at the show

and her lovely hubby Tracy...sorry about the blurry picture!!!

Next stop up the mountains to Tim and Marios

Although we got through a ton of work we also had a lot of fun.
Mario gave my hat the seal of approval

and Tim introduced me to the world of snap chat filters!

Then it was back down the mountain and on to Texas, where my first port of call was to the lovely Paige who completely restored my frazzled locks.

I was in Texas to teach at Big Mouth Scrappers, Forney. A fabulous treasure trove. Just look at the classroom area!!

The lovely Emily made me a welcome cake but some one got the first slice before I could photo it, lol

 Here's the lovely Emily, who was my carer in the community for the duration of my visit. I am sure I corrupted her and she will never be the same again !!!

After a long day, its feet up and a gluten free vegan beer!

 The owner of the store, the fabulous Cindy, took me to my next destination. Now I need me some of her glasses !!!

I am still in Texas, today was a demo and presentation for retailers and tonight/tomorrow I am at Michaels Corporate Headquarters teaching workshops, before I fly back to California, where I will be teaching at Scrapbooking Forever, Westlake.
Unfortunately there are no spots left and a waiting list, so sorry if you missed out.

The following weekend I will be teaching at Scrapmania, Cedar Rapids. I know there are a few spots still available so hopefully I will see you there.

I will leave you with a page from my black journal, incorporating the Puddy Cat stamps from the latest release.

Polished Jade, a beautiful marine green
Then we have Slate Grey, a neutral that looks stunning with EVERY single one of my other colours.  So useful.

Ground coffee, so deep you can almost smell it!!

Chopped Pesto, which is fast becoming a firm favourite!

 I have also released 6 new sets of red rubber stamps, in my usual eclectic and quirky style!

Rose coloured Glasses, with obligatory ants lol
