Spring forward...

Oh no! one hour less sleep - that is all I need. I am an eight hour girl and then I can tackle the day and I found myself awake at twenty to seven on a day I could lie in so I got up, made a cup of fruit tea and decided to give my blog an update on my fabulous new notepad....so here goes, another long post.

a page in my journal describing what is happening at the moment...

this relates to the move to the new shop - it is amazing what you are told you are doing!!
I made a banner with my Big Shot for the new shop as I am having a small area for an office/store


here's some close ups...






I made a few atc's for a class I have in mind...

I also bought myself some Blo-pens which give an airbrushed look through a felt tip type pen and I had some fun trying them out in my journal. I cut a basic image from a piece of copier paper and played. Not too happy with the result and boy was I seriously out of breath when I finished but it was good fun.





Q had asked me if I could show her how to use chalks so this week cards were made using chalks and guess what?? who didn't make class this week but yes you've guessed it Q!!! here's my demo card that will be going to Mum for Easter - bit pretty for my style but she will love it.


Margaret and Mu's cards....


and Blaithin and Rosangela's...


they had also finished off cards from last week.

On Wednesday Benny appeared with his haircut - his parents are happy with me as they have been trying for ages and my comments to him had obviously worked!


Colin and I are now off shopping on this beautiful warm and sunny Spring day.
so Bye for now
