Busy Life

Life seems to be getting away from me at the moment and crafting always goes first. Pen and I managed to spend most of the weekend at the Artisan show near Leamington Spa though and had a great time. If you haven't heard about this one, it's been organised through Traplet Publications (publishers of Craft Stamper) and the first time it's been held. The show organisers had arranged workshops to take place all day for a nominal fee. I think it really added to the show to be able to try products in between the retail therapy, meet stamping friends and to come away with something that you've made at the same time. The new Viva paint products look fab and I can't wait to have a play with them, as well as all the other products I managed to buy. (Couldn't resist the stash shot below!)

You've got some interesting stuff there Carol - I've seen the Mosaics book advertised and so far been strong enough not to order it, but it keeps calling to me! Have fun when time allows, trying everything out. I've stocked up on plain card to have another go at blending Distress inks - when time allows!

Sounds like you had fun...even if you haven't got time to craft you can still absorb the atmosphere and get inspiration from your new book!!

Glad you were able to get some new art supplies with Pen. I understand that feeling of how things have a way of getting in the way of our creating. I look forward to seeing your results with those Viva paints! :) Best to you always - Marilyn
