Its a bit late but its still Wednesday so it counts.

So still on the workdesk from last week is the cute butterfly clock, joined now by some work in progress christmas cards, and in the foreground a calendary type thing that just may be related to the 2SL event Julia was referring to on her page.

Nothing much else thats really new, except its been so long since I posted (except last week) that its probably all new to most of you.

Have good week!

Bank Hols Weekend

Well its the end of a busy bank holiday weekend. I managed to persuade a friend to do a leaflet drop with me for my Stampin' Up! business and so this morning we went off on a tour of some of the front gardens of town. Despite my initial hesitations we ended up having a good time, with good company, admiring (or not) front gardens and being out in the sunshine.

We also ended up with a whole new appreciation for the work of our trusty posties. By the end of the first road we had scraped and bruised fingers and knuckles. I had been worried we might get our fingers nibbled by dogs lying in wait, but we were far more likely to loose them to the spring loaded letter boxes, and I'm not quite appreciating the free exfoliation from the brushes inside - or maybe I just need to get the other hand done so they are evenly red!

Second job today was to finish up some work on this years 2 Scrapladies "Year in a Day" class, which the above piccie is a sneak peek from. There are more piccies and information over on the 2SL blog - here.

Hope you all had a fab weekend.

Time for WOYWW

Its ages since I posted on WOYWW, in fact when I checked back it was over a year, so its way time I caught up with everyone!

So here is a bit of my desk. I got the shelves recently from Ikea and they are great. I can hide things under them and I have a little space on top for placing things for photos - hence the piece of white card.

On the desk is part of a project Mrs Dunnit and I are working on for 2 scrapladies and on the shelf is a little clock I decorated last night with some Stampin' Up! papers and butterfly embosslits (it cuts and embosses them all in one). You can't really see in the piccie but the clock is spotty on the front but the sides has the reverse of the paper which is a paler blue typeface print. There is also a ribbon tied round it. Here's a close up of it. I love it, might have to make some as Christmas pressies.

Happy Wednesday everyone.

On line stores

I have no idea if they work, if people use them much, but in the spirit of nothing ventured nothing gained, I now have both an Etsy and a Folksy shop (the European rival). Links in the sidebar if you're interested.

And cos a post is boring with no pretties to look at, here is one of the cards I made for a friend at work, whose Neice turns one soon. The pink base is SU Pink Pirouette card, the little flower stamp is from the Itty Bitty Bits set, the rest are various papers, stickers, gems and ribbon I already owned. The card and lettering was cut on my Cricut using Base Camp.

Mostly Marina Mist

Its been a busy weekend. Yesterday was the regular Ludgershall crop, where we had a couple of new faces (hi Lunchlady Jan and Morti) and we lunched on pizza and lots of cake. Oh and we did a little scrapping too.

I dont get to scrap much at home, I tend to only at crops, but thats difficult too as I dont have all my stuff with me so I have to think of what I might want and take along all eventualities. So I was quite pleased with the outcome of this LO. The photos are of a day trip I took to Marseilles back in June, when I visited a friend in Aix (just half hour away from Marseille). Almost everything on the LO is a Stampin' Up! Marina Mist product. The background is the plain textured cardstock, the mounts are the patterned paper from the paper stack. Theres the pen I used to write in the top right corner, and the ink I used on the mounts. In fact the only thing thats not Marina Mist is the very thin mount round the photos in Nearly Navy.

Obviously I was having a blue day!

Hope you all had a good weekend.



PS dont forget if you would like some Marina Mist, check out the link to the catalogue on the right and email me your order. If your order is over £75 you qualify for the yummy free gift above. If you'd like to join my stampers 6 - I have some places left. This will start in October with the launch of the new catalogue which you will get free if you sign up.

Want a party, but don't have the room?

Don't know that many people who would be interested?

Too busy to have one?

Still want to take advantage of the great new benefits of being a hostess?

Why not join my Stampers 6 Club which will start in October with the launch of the new Catalogue?

So what is a Stampers 6?

Its basically a party without having to hold the party.

6 of you join the group and commit to spend at least £25 a month (plus a small contribution to the p&p) for 6 months. That is a total of £150 which is the minimum a party needs to order so that the hostess qualifies for the benefits.

Each month one of the members is the hostess and so gets the hostess benefits for that month.

From the 1st of October the hostess benefit system is changing so that the hostess will be paid in 'hostess pounds' that can be used to purchase either exclusive hostess items or other catalogue items, so that's even better value than at present.

As part of the club you will receive a free Stampin Up catalogue (worth £5.95) at the start, plus any further mini catalogues that might appear during the length of the club. You will of course benefit from any other offers Stampin' Up! may make.

In addition, as a reward for sticking with it :-) Everyone taking part in the full length of the club term will receive a small gift at the end.

If you would like to sign up, or get more information please email me - (cos I don't think the link is working)

Pinch Punch First of the Month!

Just a quickie to let you know that for this month (yes its August already) Stampin' Up! are giving away a free gift. With either an order of £75 or a workshop total of £250 you will get the following:

A beautiful, exclusively-designed cosmetic bag.
Rich Razzleberry 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Striped Gosgrain Ribbon.
A 24-piece Clip Assortment.

The ribbon alone would normally cost you £10.25 so you can see this is a real bargain, and you could use the fab cosmetic bag for keeping your smaller tools in.

If you would like one of these lovely sets, I can take orders by email (payable by paypal) or if you would like a workshop then please email me.

Right I'm off now to see what I can order for myself so I can get a set (not that I need anymore ribbon...)
