Sorry I've been AWOL again..give me 50 lashes with the cat o'nine tails and let's call it quits? I truly have meant to update daily, as I love doing my blog, but as some of you may find, crafting, housework, family and friends seem to get in the way! That's how it should be, life is for living - and in the real , not the virtual world. Still I love it here.
We filmed Creativity! TV last week and as usual a good time was had by all. Everyone loved the cupcakes I took baked by my friend Michelle, and as you can imagine I was very popular - I've never seen so many men in the studio! We also had a visitor in the CCTV studio - Linda (owner of Blue Summerhouse Design blog) , who had won a competition to spend a day with us at the studios. She had made a really gorgeous card with the Penelope and Percy Collection, which you'll get to see in a future episode. It was lovely to speak to someone who is as passionate about her crafting as me!
On Thursday I'll be travelling to Ireland with my Bestest Friend Ever and docrafts colleague Sheila Halliwell for a two day demo starting on Friday 30th July at David Walsh School and Office Supplies in Dungarvan. Cliona Larkin will also be demonstrating - it really will be great to see her again, as the last time I saw her was in February. I could listen to her gorgeous accent forever and a day, and I really can't wait to demo, just to hear that gorgeous Southern Irish accent. It's certainly going to be a crafty weekend by the Sea! I plan to sample a real Irish Guinness - David already has my order behind the Bar!Sheila and I have also promised one another that we will get up early and have a walk on the beach - until it's time for us to get up of course! For more information about the two days, and to book a place click here.
An then... not long after I get back from Ireland, we're off on our long awaited holiday to DISNEY WORLD, Florida! I simply cannot wait - really, I can't! It's the third time we've been, David and I went for our honeymoon, and then again we shared our experience with Joe when he was nearly three. Now we go again to celebrate our 10 year Wedding Anniversary. This time we're staying at WDW Port Orleans Resort, the previous times we've stayed at All Star Movies. The DWD resorts are simply the best!!! Can you tell how excited I am? I'm simply bouncing off the walls! I love EVERYTHING about it - it truly is where magic lives. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but we wouldn't all so to be the same.
Anyhoo, seeing as I've been away for a little while, I think its about time I shared a card.
Here's a card I made with free papers from Simply Cards and Papercrafts one night when I just wanted to make a card. You know, it's about 10.30pm and the urge suddenly hits you. I love these designs and the colours are just perfect for this time of year. I don't know if you can see, but I added some Anita's 3D Clear Gloss Finish to the dots on the flower. I ♥ that stuff!
That's all for now folks. see you soon, and not too long this time!
