OK - Who Pinched April?

OK - who pinched April? I remember going to Somerset for a few days, I remember having a fantastic family birthday celebration but since going down with a rotten head cold after that it's all gone rather woolly...........still onwards and upwards eh!

Had some lovely news that one of my cards has been accepted for publication in Craft Stamper Magazine (Ready, Set, Stamp Article -August Issue) and then when I got back from Somerset I found out I had been picked as a Guest Designer for their Stamping Contrasts feature on their blog - WOW ! How fab! My mantra 'if you don't have a go you don't know' seems to be working and I really would say to you - just have a go. I craft for fun and while it stays fun I'll keep going - so I try to have a go at different things whenever I can.

Which leads me on to this week and I've been busy prepping for Oyster's Demo Day on Saturday 26th April at their Rochester shop ............

........... where I'll be demoing tips and techniques in colouring that I've learnt over the years. I'm looking forward to working alongside the lovely Martine Smith , Eileen Godwin and Barbara Gray. It should be a fun packed day so hope you can come along !
