Lots of news today..

Wooo, I'm so busy at the moment I can't remember when I last slept! Flowers, flowers and more flowers - our house is beginning to resemble Kew Gardens. And before you think I got a massive bouquet for Valentine's Day, think again. I've been making lots and lots of samples of punched flowers.

 I have three exciting bits of news to share chronological order (not bad for a Thursday!)

1.  I have just been informed that as of today I am now officially a member of the Design Team for Papermill!! I've been using their superb quality paper and card for years now and am delighted to be able to share my projects on their blog and Facebook page now too. Why not have a look at the Papermill blog to see who else has been picked. You'll love their creations.

2.   I will be heading over to Birmingham on Sunday and will be at the Craft Hobby and Stitch trade show on Monday and Tuesday demoing for Tonic Studios. I'm really looking forward to meeting up with all the guys from Tonic as well as lots of others who have been in touch - hopefully my new friends from Papermill too.
Keep an eye out for lots of photos when I come home.

3.   Last, but not least, a little bit of advance notice of a demo. I'll be demoing my new Punch and Stamp sets along with other lovely things at Paperworks, Linen Green, Dungannon on 2nd March for the lovely Heather. I'll post another reminder of this in a separate post when I come back from NEC. I am really hoping to see some of the ladies who made it such a great day the last time!


  1. First of all well done on the DT position Ruth, you are of course an asset to their team.

    I too have an abundance of flowers from the same source, but like you no large deliveries, although the postman did have to wake me at 5am with the first delivery of Valentine cards, there were so many he had to make two trips !!!!!!!

    I sounds like you have a very busy time ahead, it's a good job you enjoy what you do and I am sure that shines through when you do your demos.
