WOYWW?? June 27th 2012

morning! what is on my work desk?? a helluva lot of mess!! I had a market last Saturday {yes last!} and i still haven’t unpacked due to feeling rough since, but it is my job for the day as Mr.C’s OCD wont cope much more!

So imagine if you will i stood in my living room at my desk and took photos whilst turning 360 – you will soon understand why Mr.C is getting twitchy!!


lots of mess on here trimmer, my new Emma Bridgewater bag that my best friend Maria got me for my birthday, bits that didn’t get finished in time for the fair and general mess!



The window sill next to desk full of samples stamps and catty boxes!



Boxes of my displays


the dresser where the computer usually lives and the new home for the printer as i got peeved keep taking laptop to printer in the hallway!



Laptops current position on dining table with children colouring in back ground – at least we all sitting together hey? lol

So as you can see once back from school run i have my work cut out for me to return it to some form of normality!

Until next time

Join Me?

Would you like to join my team? The Inky Moos!
Ever wanted to turn your hobby into a career?  You can with Stampin' Up!

Becoming an Independent Demonstrator was one of the best decisions i have ever made, it has literally changed my life.  I have made so many new friends both fellow demonstrators and people locally that i would never have met otherwise, i am sure if i had not become a demonstrator then i would still not know half the people i do now!  Becoming a demonstrator made me get out in the town that was still fairly new to me and give me a reason to talk to people, i don't know where i would be without Stampin' Up! now.
For a very small start up cost of only £99 you can kick start your Stampin' Up! career too.  So what do you get for your £99?  Well firstly the starter kit is completely customisable so if you already have some Stampin' Up! products you can add to your collection or if you are completely new to stamping you can choose the stamp sets and accessories that you love.  You can chose up to £130 of product {so already a fab saving} and then Stampin' Up! give you a business supply pack valued at £45 giving you every thing to get your business up and running straight away - so that is a value of over £175 for just £99!! 
You also have fantastic support from Stampin' Up! in the form of their fantastic team of demo support who are just a phone call away, the demonstrator website and a demo only forum that is full of inspiration and ideas to help you at any time, i am also here for you if you should need me and i will organise regular team meetings and get togethers and there are also lots of training events for you to attend throughout the year.
Your don't have to start a business to become a demo; plenty of people join to enjoy the fantastic offer that the starter kit is and to enjoy our very generous demo discount.  One of the other benefits for me of being a demonstrator is that not only do i get the products that i would have brought anyway at discount i also can make my hobby pay for itself which makes me feel better about spending money on myself.
If you would like to become a Demonstrator or talk about the options please call or email me for an informal chat.

By Popular Demand.....

My Christmas card club!  I was asked a few times late in the year last year to start a club for making Christmas cards in time to catch the last post so this year i have planned it into my diary. 
Have you ever wanted to send gorgeous handmade cards at Christmas, but didn’t know how to get started or think you had the ability?? Let me show you how easy it is to make gorgeous cards that will impress your loved ones and be so much more personal than a shop brought card.

Wow you’re family and friends with beautiful handmade cards this year.
For only £12 per session
**Early Bird Booking Offer**
If you book and pay for all 5 sessions before the end of July 2012 you only pay £50 a saving of £10!!

Mr.C had the half term holiday off the other week, and as it was my birthday the following week my mum, granddad me and Mr.C went off for an early treat for my birthday; first a meal at Watford TGI Fridays {not something i would recommend or repeat in a hurry!} and then off for our time slot here;


Can you guess where we are?

I have tons of photos to scrap in the future, once they are done i shall share them with you all

OMG!! A whole month!!

O my gosh!! I am so sorry i have not blogged for over a month!! I can’t believe it has been a month!  I am sorry for my absence, family life has unfortunately got in the way but i have been crafting so i do have lots to show you in the coming weeks.
So lots to tell you including 2 promotions from the lovely people at Stampin’ Up! and new class details.  But i will come to those later.

ETA: I have just realised that this is my 100th Post!!! Woo Hoo!!  Thank you so much for sticking with me all this time even though I'm terrible at posting regularly i promise i will get better :) xx

I have a Market coming up at the end of the week, so i have been super busy getting myself ready. Here is one of the cards that i have made;

This card is made using the lovely Bright Blossoms stamp set from the Summer Mini and the gorgeous 2011-2013 In Colours i just cant stop using these colours they are so gorgeous that i am using them all the time.
The colour scheme here is Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party and Crumb Cake.  Finished off with a few off the teeny basic pearls and some Wisteria Wonder bakers twine.

As you may know in the UK we have had the diamond jubilee which was a lovely time to have all the family round, me and the girls made a fresh cream ‘Vicky’ sponge and because i like to craft i just had to top the cake off with some cute cake bunting.  What do you think?  I also cut a makeshift union jack to drape across before sprinkling with icing sugar.
Hope you like my projects, i will be back tomorrow with details of the promotions from Stampin’ Up!

If you would like any products used to produce this project then please contact me
Until Next Time
