Most of you know me from working at La Pashe and Just Inklined, I have loved working there and made loads of friends from being with the two companies. It has in fact been one of the hardest decisions to make and I have had loads of talks with Chris my husband who is also my best friend and supports me in everything I do regardless of the outcome.
I made the decision to leave both of the companies for pastures new, I wish both La Pashe and Just Inklined along with all of the staff and the design team ladies the very best for the future it has been a pleasure to work with you all and I thank you for supporting me.
So my last day will be 4th April and I am super excited for what lies ahead.
I figured if I don’t do it now I will have years of “what ifs” in front of me so now is the time.
I know many of you love the companies and hope you will continue to do so.

I popped over to Harrogate craft show yesterday, it was wonderful to see so many familiar faces there. I thought I would give out a Shout to one of my favourite embellishment companies that was there Mei Flower if as yet you haven’t come across this company then you are missing out.
People were like bees around a honey pot on this stand, or should that be like Magpies picking up all of the shiny, sparkly pretties that they have to offer.
Here is some of the gorgeousness that I picked up while I was there.
I know you need close ups. The ribbon sliders are to die for.
Not just ribbon sliders also flat backed embellishments.
Oh the pearls and gems are just divine.
Varying size packs too.
From very large to very small
How about some charming charms
What are you waiting for…….

They say that feathers are symbolic to a loved one that has passed away being around you, I believe it has to be a white fluffy one, I don’t know how true that is but there is certainly something heavenly about them.
The feather that I have used today was a free cut file from Silhouette, when I got it I wasn’t really to sure what I was going to do with it, I just know that I loved it.
I decided to cut it out in varying sizes and then sprayed them with vintage sprays, I then layed them to one side until inspiration came, adding things I liked, a bit of spiders web lace a button and a bow, a flourish and a border, I played with layering them up until I was happy with the look.

I decided to give my Graph’It pens an airing and do some colouring, I simply love colouring curly hair, little S’s is the key.
I shaded around the image with Pan Pastels
I used the First Edition designer papers.
Graph’It Markers are available from Polkadoodles
