Sorry I've been a bit quiet of late, things have been a bit hectic! There has been the launch of the new Woodware blog which has been very exciting. My friend Jane has just become a Grandmother for the first time so baby cards have been to the fore & I just had to make a "Congratualtions Grandma" card too!I Forgot to photo it before posting it-oops sorry! Can't share that one with you. I'm soon off to foreign parts, can't wait! Although when that volcano started acting up again I did get a bit worried but all seems well now- touch wood! Keep watching the Woodware blog, bye for now!!

This is the card that I made for the Cardmaking & Papercraft Cardmaker of the Year competition 2009 for entry in the Stampendous category. I was absolutely thrilled to be the runner up as it was the first time I had won anything in a major competition. I used Stampendous stamps from the "Tiers of Treats" collection stamped onto shrinky plastic & collaged onto pink spotty & mulberry papers. Very girly! http://www.woodware.co.uk/

A bit early in the year you may think!! I've given in to temptation & got myself a Blackberry.I spent all evening yesterday playing with it (when I should have been doing other & more important things I may add!) All this technology makes my brain ache!!

Just had a nice morning out in Torquay. It's lovely & sunny again today if a touch windy. Did a little shopping & had a nice lunch (no cooking for me today- woohoo!!) & a walk around the marina.Now we're back to sit out on our terrace for a while & look at the sea with a cuppa -what could be better?

This year is just flying by again, Friday again already!!Another working week over. I have to have the best job for a crafter- I work in a craft shop!! I have worked at Japonica in Exmouth for 7 years now & was a complete craft rookie when I started. Japonica has been voted Craft Retailer of the Year for the South West for the last 7 years running (as voted for by our loyal customers!)so we must be getting it right! Janet holds regular workshops & there are demonstrations in the store every Thursday morning. So, I love my job- what's not to love!!

I'm so excited to have been asked to join the Woodware Craft Collection design team. Their new blog "Woodware Witterings" will be up & running at the end of this month & I have been asked to contribute on a weekly basis. Have already got all kinds of ideas running around in my head just hope I don't dry up when the time comes! Must start work this evening!!
