Big big BIG apologies for my non blogging. For some reason I have been lock out of my blog for the past ten days.!! Howe frikkin inconvenient do you think that has been.?? We tried all sorts, bit of this, bit of that, bit of gentle persuasion, a right good old fashioned battering...all to no avail.We had just about given up hope when it decided to appear again. So we are back on track with added security measures to hopefully prevent it all from happening again.
This is a photo I took a week ago whilst trying to get into it...
And here's one, after trying, unsuccessfully, for hours...
There is now tons to bring you up to date with, so apologies but it is going to have to be a condensed version, otherwise you would get eyestrain from reading it, lol.

For fans of the Master himself Mr Tim Holtz, he is realising one of his dreams and has released a line of ready made products. They previewed at The New York Stationery show, and include canvas's, note cards, journals, and bags. You can see Tim's photos HERE. needless to say I personally feel I need to have them all, just need to convince Our Ben of that fact, lol
This was a pic of his stand. Fabby isn't it..??? He is always the genius at designing his stands and people flock to them.
I taught a really great bunch of newbie Art Journalers last weekend and they were truly fabulous. We laughed all weekend and, at times, the tone was lowered to hilarious levels, and they left with knowledge they had never even dreamed of lol.
Here's a little pic of me looking a bit Amazonian.
It isn't a trick of light I am actually that tall, when standing next to the students whilst wearing my yabba dabba doo Red or Dead wedges. I think I am 6ft 4in in them, lmao
I am knee deep in preparing workshops for the next few months , and so will give you a quick reminder about our preview/taster day on Sat the 4th June.
You will be able to see all the workshops n the flesh, so to speak, and there is also the chance to participate in some mini workshops, with either me, Kate or Sandy. All workshops booked, in person, on the day will receive 10% discount.. What more could you ask for..?? Oh yes, of course...tea and buns...!!
See HERE for more details.
I am also busy designing my new stamp ranges and trying to sort out my schedule for CHA in Chicago. I am having an extended stay this time to allow time for teaching at THE most fabulous store..more details to follow.
Going to leave you with a page from my Ledger Journal
