Back Home, Lovely Ladies and Winner

Hello friends

Back home and back in the routine of working in London today!
I'm so pleased it is just the two days there, I would be proper grumpy if it were more -
craft deprivation! 

Bella was very excited when I returned home, lots of kisses and following me everywhere 
(the boys didn't show me quite so much attention!)

Spending time with Kim and Stacey in Birmingham was such fun, they are 
amazing ladies, dedicated and inspirational - I feel blessed to know and work with them both.

It was also brilliant to meet many new retailers and arranging my demos and classes.
I'm getting organised and there is a dedicated tab on my website, appropriately named...

First off I am visiting the Make-It Show at Farnborough on Saturday 28 February.
I am going to be demoing Spellbinders all day on the Samuel Taylors stand so if you 
live in the Hampshire area please pop along - all the visiting details are here.

Last Sunday I had a giveaway - Grand Labels One.

It was fascinating to read all your stories on how you started crafting,
thank you to everyone that left a comment.

The winner is ... 


Congratulations Marg, you said:
"My 1st card making purchase was an Anna Griffin kit from QVC just when I was due to retire!
Since then my house has become over run with Inks, Papers,Pens and Spellbinders Dies.. Machines, and everything needed to craft!"

Drop me an email with your address details to
and I will pop your dies in the post to you.

Please stop by tomorrow - it's Friday Die Day!

Take care friends.

Good to have you back with us, but a shame you have to go to work, LOL. I know it brings in the cash, and I suppose you are lucky to find a 2 day a week job. Not surprised Bella was pleased to see you.

Good morning Christine
Glad to hear you are home safe and sound. You are a very lucky lady to make your hobby your job. I would have been like a child in a sweet shop at a Trade show.
Congratulations to Marg.
Enjoy your day. I am spending this damp day in my craft room making 4 teenage boy cards.

Hi Christine, Congratulations to the very lucky Marg.
Great piccies, especially Bella, you are always sure of a fabulous homecoming when you have a dog, they greet you as if you had been away a year, I really miss my doggies, my cat Lizzie is only bothered when it's food time, as I'm her 'staff' hahaha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
