was a day that "a lot got done". I've sorted out all the prizes and have allocated everybody with lovely craft bundles. And still, there are prizes to come in. So those will just go to the main winner, Fiona - hope she does not mind waiting a tiny bit longer. Fiona won the Craft Robo and a pile of stash plus he is about to get MORE! All the prizes for the Daisy Raffle go out tomorrow and Thursday. I'll be so excited to hear back from each winner to hear how they loved opening their parcels. **I'm pretty envious of them** As a matter of interest, what is the best way to transport a HUGE box of supplies to Eire? If anyone could advise, I'd be grateful.
Me in my MoleskinE class
The student list has risen to almost treble the initial class call. I'm stunned, if I'm truthful. However, several people have dropped out from their initial enquiries which means I have some extra extra extra places left. I've bought additional kits in to accommodate everyone's desire at the weekend, so if you fancy giving this exponentially large and exciting art class (details here) - please, contact me here. You will get access to a very private forum which is brimming with all the info you need and a place to make new friends. Everyone, so far, have been wonderfully supportive of each other, especially those new to Art Journals.
Oh, that crazy kid of Mine? Well, she went sailing tonight for the 3rd time tonight. But it was ever so choppy and all the small topper crafts capsized. Fortunately the leaders knew this would happen and saved her from keeling over by popping her in the power boat as part of the rescue missions. SHE LOVED IT! She had her trusty RNLI top on and obviously felt it warranted her being a part of the rescue missions. That damn hoody is never off her back. Dad - can we have another please??!!
Completing old deeds
Ive been putting old jobs to bed today and the heart swap that should have happened in January can finally be put into motion. I had people join up, drop out and not return art work and now I have a 4th volunteer finishing her projects and then we can get this heart swap all happy and triumphant. Thank you to the heart swap girls for their patience.
Card Makery time
I made these two cards whilst I was on the phone to a client today. One hour and 35 minutes is no time to sit in a chair and do nothing with your hands. NO WAY. I'm a girl, I can multi task, can't I? So I made these for my stock pile. Using leftovers from yesteryear (Studio Calico), I treated my creative and itchy fingers to some stampin and gluing.
And room for one more, please
Taking these photos at 9.15pm tonight was a treat - its starts to get darker at nights from tomorrow - booooooo!
And finally................Giveaway time!
Today, I received some pretty exciting stuff from Letraset. We all know and love how these pens deliver a professional look to all your art work with their small bullet and thick chisel tips, yeah? Well, hold on to your knickers because they have released an add on to your prized beauties! An ultra fine tip that you "click" onto your bullet tip. The bullet point slips into the back of the ultra fine nip and ink magically draw from the bullet to the ultra fine nib in SECONDS.
They are the only pen manufacturer that offers this unique and versatile "add on" - ever, in the world - EVER. They will be in shops at the beginning of July, in packs of three. And yes, you can whip it off one pen, add it to another, scribble a little swoosh on spare card and the new colour will flush the other colour out! However, there is always the chance you could cross contaminate colours. BUT!!! Have no fear as the price point of these "add on" nibs are affordable to be able to sit one on your favouritest pens forever!
Remember, ProMarkers offer the best value for money in Alcohol based pens with their ink capacity (70% more than its competitors) and no need to refill as they are cheaper to replace than refill. Ive used my Pear Green a gazillion times and it still works a treat and its about to get the fine nib treatment.
So, who wants to win some? You can win a set of three from me (one each for three winners!) and a set from the Letraset blog here. Add your name to the comments section below and I'll pick a winner within 24 hours.
Wow - that was an epic post. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz, well done for staying awake!
