Saturday 23 September 2017


I've been busy with Hochanda preparations today, getting ready for my two shows next Sunday, 1st October, at 4pm and 7pm.  We would love it if you tuned in to watch.  Here is a sneaky peek at a mixed media canvas I have been preparing for demo purposes.  If you would like to see it in it's entirety then do pull up a pew and join me then to see this and more being made before your very eyes.  Please share the date and times for us with your crafty friends on your blog or on Facebook if you can.  Your help to spread the word will be very much appreciated always.

Lovely Lesley of Chocolate Baroque will be my companion again on the trip to Peterborough next weekend, but Lesley also has her own shows tomorrow and Monday, at 7pm tomorrow, and 7am and 10am on Monday.  Alongside her own fabulous stamps on show she will also be taking on a kit made up of CI items too, so it's another 'must view' folks, as Lesley always has some great demos up her sleeve.

After the Hochanda visit we have less than a week's turnaround before the trip to Port Sunlight for the Happy Stampers show taking place on Saturday, 7th October.  If you visit the Happy Stampers site at: you will see that there are only 200 tickets left - so if you are intending to go please be quick and get your ticket, as you will need a ticket to get in to the halls!!  Chocolate Baroque will also have a stand there as well as lots of other fabby crafty folk, so you will be sure to enjoy the experience at this very friendly show.

My other couple of makes to show you this evening are creations beautifully made and very vintage in style by teamie Sylvie.  Check out Sylvie's blog for more good stuff at:

Stamps appearing above include CI-481, CI-477 and CI-473, alongside Sylvie's lovely vintage images.  They all work so beautifully together don't you think?

Bye for now,
Back soon,

Looking forward to the show and your Demos Jean. The canvas looks fabulous. Can't wait to see it in more detail. Sylvie's tag cards are totally gorgeous. Looove the mix of the vintage image with the stamping. Very clever use of all of the different stamps. Such a wonderful effect. Super colours and designs...I can't stop looking at them :) :)
