Busy busy Schedule–Create and Craft TV next week

So I have a very busy schedule lined up for next week, I thought I would list my dates and times here for both you and me so that I/we don’t forget.














































However, I do get Sunday the 8th June off as it is my gorgeous Mam’s Special 80th Birthday,
Then it starts all over again at 8:00 am Monday.
I also found this image of one of my first shows at Create and Craft TV back in 2008

Ohh Remember When……. La Pashe

Designing for Clothing

I have been playing with Vinyl today, I have been helping friends with a special project for their beautiful Grand Daughter, her very own brand so to speak.



Oh yes, it also has a designer logo at the back



I love how they turned out, we were limited in the colours of vinyl that we had to play with but i do think this works.


I also designed a T-Shirt for Nigel May presenter at Create and Craft TV but I want a picture of him wearing that before I show it on here.

All in all it was a successful day with good company, Thanks Peter and Sue.

Square Headz–Luv Tiki

Luv Tiki (The Heart Breaker)

I had time to play today and play I did, I painted, glittered, used my Copic markers, glued, stamped and used metal leaf and just had loads of fun.

These are beautifully designed and constructed from quality Chipboard which has been laser cut for perfection.


Assembly was loads of fun, my youngest daughter Natalie and her partner Adam came around for a cuppa and fell in love with these models.


Watching each bit of this build up is brilliant, so much so that I forgot to eat at lunch time.


This is just one of the amazing designs, may more here  I bet you spot someone that you know.

Square Headz–Have you seen them?

I have managed to get my hands on some Square Headz whoop whoop, these would make the perfect gifts for teens and fun gifts for those fun loving adults too.

However, I am keeping mine all to myself, I intend sprucing up these babies all for me.

Look I have a family of them.

I think this one is Papa Square Headz and will be coloured and decorated as Chris, shhhh don't tell him.

And of course you couldn’t have Papa without a Mamma Square Headz so this one will be decorated as the wild side of me. I’m going in but will post them as soon as they are assembled and decorated.

Handmade Flowers

A girl needs to fill her time in somehow whilst sitting in a hotel room on an evening, I've never been one for venturing out on my own so I thought I would bring something to occupy my time.
A watercolour pad and paints, a paint brush, scissors and glue.

My friend Lizzy told me about a new tool on the market and I had to get it .
The Marion Smith Bloom Impression Tool, a simple little thing really.
I cut out the petals by hand and dampened the paper before adding a watercolour wash to them.
I thought it was very nice of the hotel to leave me a laminated sheet on the dresser, perfect to wipe clean when I was finished.
While the petals were still damp I began using the press.
Placing the petal on the hollow side.
Then pushing the two together, giving it a little twist.
Then hey presto a petal is formed.
I started over with another batch in yellow and then set them out in a neat row all ready to be stuck together and shaped into a beautiful rose.
You can see from the photo below I stated with 3 for the center then 4 then 5 and the last layer of 6.
I think you can see that the end result is something quite beautiful.
And from the side.
And one in pink.

Help me Choose–Photo’s

I’ve recently had some photo’s done but can’t for the life of me choose which one or ones to use, Inkspot Photography are so good they made a silk purse out of a pigs ear and I love all of them, I narrowed it down to these ones and thought I’d ask you all to help.

I’ll number them to make it easier.
