Woohoo...I'm back.....

Today is a very important day for me. Today I signed the contract for the sale of art y facts craft studio and shop and so after seven and a half years of serving customers six days a week and teaching four classes a week I am officially retired...to do what instead who knows but I am looking forward to finding out...
The new owner Inga is young and energetic and has some lovely ideas for taking the shop forward while continuing art y facts tradition of supplying good quality products with wonderful interesting classes...I wish her all the luck in the world.....

A well known artist Seth Apter - http://thealteredpage.blogspot.com/
challenged people on Facebook to show their studios in their working state so here's mine...mess and all!
I am kitting up for a workshop I am teaching on 15th October here in Spain and as the products en route from USA are held up at Customs in Madrid I am getting all the die cutting prepared in the meanwhile.

Here's a view into the studio from the garden.....

This is my desk which looks out over the back garden and pool.....

This is my die cutting station...

This is my butchers block with the card stock, beads, etc.....
Beneath are crates of papers and photos awaiting scrapbooking...


Right, that's it for now.....I'll be back again very soon to update you further
Bye for now
Sue
