WE HAVE NEW TEAMIES - MOTHER AND DAUGHTER, JANIENE & DENA RANGELEY....

I don't think I've yet blogged this recent news, that we have two new teamies, mother and daughter, operating as one really, just for us!  Two very talented arty ladies Dena and Janiene Rangeley.  This is Dena's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/denasdesign and Dena also sells on Etsy.  Can't wait to see what they have been up to, working towards our next Hochanda shows on 2nd April.  Here are just a few of their past CI makes to give you an idea, three by Dena and the last lovely by Janiene...



Dena has also recently decorated her own phone case, and as you can see above she also makes jewellery, this pendant in copper, which is etched with one of our stamp designs.  Simply beautiful ...

Also check out Dena's Blog, she has a step by step made with our products on there right now: http://designsbydena.blogspot.com/

So do watch out for much more from the fab duo.

NEW TEAMIE IN OUR MIDST....

We are delighted to tell you we have a new CI Teamie on board - the very talented lady that is Lynne Kirton!   I am going to share just a few of Lynne's makes tonight, and we just can't wait to see what she gets up to with CI goodies in the future - yay, go girl go!

Lynne is also very good with the camera, and loves all things wonderfully weathered too, so look out for her background papers here and in the future.  This is Lynne's 'About Me' paragraph on her blog.....

'Retired primary school music specialist, nature lover, addicted to rubber stamping & papercrafts, also into photography & playing my bowed psaltery.'

This is the link to Lynne's blog where you will see much more...

https://creativelynks.blogspot.com/

and here are some images of Lynne's work to wet your appetite - nice and bright and colourful, just how we like it...

 
 
 

 




 
Thanks for sharing Lynne,
Back soon

SATURDAY IS HOCHANDA DAY ....

Two more sleeps to go and we will be at the Hochanda studios.  Setting off on our way at lunchtime tomorrow, and the CI shows on Saturday, 5th December, will be at 7am and 1pm.  There will be new stamps (ready mounted on cling - just for Hochanda) and new papers, and new configurations and bundles, including a real Christmas bargain bundle.  Do tune in and keep me company, I would so love to have you with me, and there will be new demos and lots of samples by our lovely teamies (still waiting for several of their samples to arrive - post is very erratic just now - so keep your fingers crossed for us).  Travelling down just with Malcolm, as rules are strict at Hochanda, however Lesley (Chocolate Baroque) will be doing shows too at 11am and 3pm.  So a good day of creative crafting for you ahead.

Here are some snippets of loveliness to get us all in the mood, by Flo, Sylvie, Sandra, Sally, Helen, Sharron (the artist herself) and myself:








Oh my goodness - love them all!

See you on Saturday early a.m.

Back soon,

Jean xx
