JUST A QUICK UPDATE FROM ME....

Hope you managed to tune in to Hochanda last Sunday and see one of our shows?!  I am actually beginning to enjoy them a little now I think, as someone who is very shy by nature, it's quite an achievement to appear in front of the cameras - big yay!!

We are madly preparing for Port Sunlight at the moment, which is on Saturday.  We will travel down on Friday, and set up the stand, ready for the show the next day.  Hope you have your ticket!

Here are just a few of the many makes we took on the Hochanda shows....


A card made with the Winter Garden stamp, Oxides and our brand new A4 Background Papers (now on the website).

Here we have the canvas made with the Spring Flower Garden...


Plus a card by Sandra (gorgeous!) using the Summer Meadow stamp....


.....pity you can't see on the photo how the grasses are so gently glittered by Sandra.

....Here we have a beautiful hanging by Helen, featuring all of the stamps above, again on the new background papers....



...And finally another lovely card by Helen, featuring the Winter Garden again, all pretty and metallic....


Thanks very much everyone.

Back soon,

Jean x

Two wonderful shows Jean with so much inspiration. I've never tried jewellery making but I'm definitely going to give it a go after watching your demo. The makes on here are beautiful, thank you for sharing mine too. Hope all goes well for you at Port Sunlight. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I managed to catch one of the shows in between my internet going down and enjoyed watching you! Such a shame Port Sunlight is so far, it sounds like a great show and it would be nice to meet you all again. Have fun!

I was so glad that I saw one of the shows after the weekend; great inspiration and great stamps! I have to watch on my PC and sometimes time goes too fast to do all you want in 1 week... TFS and have a good week!

Hi everyone, thanks for the nice comments. Angela - the cobweb was sparkly acetate cut with a Tim Holtz cobweb die. It looks great! We will have the stamps and stuff at Port Sunlight. Jean x
