Been a Busy Week :)

As some of you know I was away on a mini adventure this week :) I was asked to visit Bramwell Crafts in Lancashire for an interview and am extremely proud & excited to say I am the new Bramwells Craft Demonstrator for the North of Scotland!

I am so excited - they are a lovely family run company and supply craft shops with an array of gorgeous products from ProvoCraft, Hero Arts, Inkadinkado and many others! It's a wonderful opportunity to do what I love and hopefully help inspire others :)

The other highlight of the week were visiting my friend Trish and her lovely family! The kids all had great fun playing together and I wish we could have stayed longer! Just look at them!!!!

I've been tagged...

.....and only just figured out what to do LOL

The lovely Trish has tagged me with a ROCKIN' GIRL BLOGGER AWARD!

And now I need to tag 5 others.....hmmmmm no house work getting done today then !! Hee Hee! I shall tag........

Got some exciting news this space :)

It's Raining, It's Pouring.....

......this weather is boring me to tears!!!!

Where oh where is the Summer! Have had enough of this weather! The garden is all flooded, I have a tonne of soggy washing......the trampoline is off limits!

Ah well....have treated myself to these lush papers from Funky Kits to transform into mini books for teachers gifts so that will keep me busy :) Annemiek & Freya can help by doing some nice drawings to go inside!

Hope somebody, somewhere has some sunshine!!!!???

Busy Busy Busy....

Having a busy weekend! Which is nice :)

Spent the day up in Aberlour yesterday. The Pantry organised a mini event in the Village Square with some tasters, jams and preserves to buy, tablet, sweeties and a craft stall that had funky knitted scarves. (and yes Annemiek HAD to have one...a big frilly pink hairy thing!) There was also a MacPherson's Lorry set up with its side down to act as a stage for highland dancing, belly dancing, a rock band and ceilidh music. It was a really nice day out and the sun was shining! Lots of fun for all!

Doing some work on the website today - Karen & I had great fun on Friday night picking what yummy srtash to include in the new SUPER FUNKY KIT which should go live by the end of the day!!

A rather long photo to share......a mini book made using beer mats and the gorgeous Sassy Girl papers from Creative Imaginations. This was part of my DT work for Funky Kits and the papers are all double sided. Erika had the boy version which is also gorgeous with lots of wee trains and boy stuff! They should be available as kits soon :)
