Absolutely Manic!

Is that the world or me?? I suddenly remembered that I ought to post a little bit more on my blog , when I was lying awake at about 5 this morning! ( one of those things that you get when you get to my age! more about all that in another blog...

and so I thought I would write down what I had been up to for the past few days. ( I quite like the idea that someone somewhere might read this and think oh yes that is what my days are like....

I have a upcoming retail show at Alexandra Palace tomorrow for 2 days , and as we manufacture or collect most of the "stuff" we sell, I have been busy making NEW rubberstamps..oriental, and also new single stamps which are less than half the price of my die sheets.

I have been collating vintage items for my bags and twills and all sorts of things... I seem to be permanently using my fabulous laser printer( pressie from DH last year) and also getting together the workshop for 60 lucky people!

If you are coming along drop by and see us on stand 49. Mal has decided to do a draw for an amazing amount of stuff. All you have to do is buy something to enter, and then collect your prize at the end of the day!

He also has discovered punches, so will be giving awaylittle dragonflies, and snowflakes at his whim! I will make a crafter of him yet!!!

Off now to pack the rest of the stuff......will let you know how it all goes..

My first Blog!

Guess it seems that you write about yourself and all that you do, so here goes....
51 years young, married for the 2nd time to Mal, a loving, toy boy! ( he is 5 months younger than me) with 5 grown up children between us!
For a living, I manufacture art rubberstamps, which I love, because I get to play with art all day! It is hard work, and often I wonder why I do it .....then I get an order and it is all worthwhile.
On Thursday I am demonstrating at a customer's shop in Kent, so I am getting all my bits and bobs ready , and working out what I am going to demo. Big right now and easy to make are ATC's ( Artist's Trading Cards). I love making them as they are quick ad small and I can give them away. You cannot sell ATC's. You have to trade them or give them away. I am experimenting all the time, and use alcohol inks and craft inks to make them.
Anyways, here I have written about a small part of my life.. so will come back tomorrow and write a bit more....
