How about this shot then girls? What a line up!
Taken down in Exmouth on the 13th October at a Japonica workshop day.
I'm on the far left and Janet Caudrelier who owns the shop is on the far right. We had a great day and lots of exciting projects went on through the day. Her next one is in March next year so if you are in the area why not join us for another fantastic workshop session. Just contact Japonica for more info.
Thanks to all the girls who came to The Glitter Pot today to do Doodlebug and Magenta classes with me. We had a really nice day. The cards are all in the shop and I forgot to take photos of them again to put on my blog!!!
Off to Chichester to The Eternal Maker tomorrow to do Floral Punch Craft. So must go the bed and get some beauty sleep. Eastbourne on Friday and them Crafts U Love for a demo day on Saturday - gosh it's all go!!

Budapest was fantastic and very interesting, would love to go back and have a session in the thermal spas.

My next class at The Glitter Pot is on Saturday 15th November when we will be using the Art Impressions selection of trees. There are quite a few tree stamps in the range and I've got some interesting ideas up my sleeve. I look forward to seeing you all again if you have booked a space. There is a reserve list of people who can't get on the class so I might just try and persuade Bryan and Carolyn to put on another repeat for you.

I'm off to The Stoke Gallery in Gosport, Hampshire this Saturday to take a floral punch craft class. We are making 'mock orange blossom' and a session making leaves of all kinds, colouring them and learning how to put them together to make a leafy display. Fancy doing that at The Glitter Pot next year?
Just thought you might like to see a nice little photo of me with Leone Em taken a few years back while we were teaching in Skipton, Yorkshire. Have a fun week. Bye for now.

Today at The Glitter Pot

Thanks to all the ladies who came to my Rubber Stamp Tapestry class today, I think we all had a great time and everybody made some beautiful pictures ready to be mounted onto Christmas cards and Birthday cards. Once my samples are completed ie made into cards too! I'll get them photographed and on my blog. But there are lots of ideas at the shop. Off to Budapest on Sunday, no not to teach rubber stamping or floral punch craft but to get some quality time with my hubby and some serios relaxing for me. The cats are going into their usual hotel with Aunty Maureen till Wednesdy, I miss them already.

Poinsettia Perfection

Another great class at The Glitter Pot with some smashing ladies a couple of weeks ago produced this brilliant card in the floral punch craft class. Its easy peasy using a Christmas tree punch cut up to make the petal shape. Want to find out more? Then come and see me at The Glitter Pot this Saturday 18th October when I will be demonstrating Rubber Stamp Tapestry, see you then.
I'm off to Luton this Sunday to teach more floral punch craft to 18 ladies who are customers of Inspire Craft, a little gem of a shop stocked full of wonderful things and run by two fabulous people Helen and Paul. We will be making daffodils, orchids and fuchsias.
Last weekend I was in Exmouth at Japonica doing a workshop day. I used my Winter Warmers set of Christmas stamps and we made cute tags with stockings and hats. Janet (who owns Japonica) has some very nice customers. Lets hope I get invited back there again soon.

Silver Bubble Fun!

My bubble tree Christmas set seems to be a bit of a hit with you lot. Here is a picture of the card we made in my last class with The Glitter Pot, Bryan took the picture for me as the card is in the shop on display.
You can use anything to put in the circles from peel offs to buttons, gems and brads, just rummage through your bits and pieces box and see what you can find. Change the colour too, how about pink and purple or orange and lime green.

A fun day with 128 petals!

Had a really good class today at The Glitter Pot, wonderful group of ladies who made some brilliant Azaleas and Camellias,(they had 128 little daisy petals in them!). I had to leave my ard at the shop for everybody to see so will have to make another one to post on my blog so you can see what you missed.
I'm going out for dinner tonight to out local pub which I love so no time to chat too much. I've not said hello to my cats yet so must do that now before we go.
Thanks to everybody who came to my class today - it was very nice.
