Valentine ATCs

Heres a few Valentine ATCs i made today.

The stamped images are by invoke art stamps get them here

I also used distress inks acetate and gold flake.

I am going to put them on my flickr site later for trade so if you would like to trade go here

Thanks for looking.


i read this book in one sitting on the plane to America.

Its not really the kind of book i go for but the first few words just got me curious and i had to buy it
These are the words that start the story.

'Excuse me sir, but may i be of assistance.
Ah i see i have alarmed you.
Do not be frightened by my beard.
I am a lover of America...'

As soon as i had read the first page i was hooked. It is a very gripping story and it really stopped me from being bored on the plane. I recommend this to anyone who loves to see into other peoples lives and loves a book they just cant put down.

Here Come The Girls

My friend Lori from Australia has put a photo up on her blog asking her visitors to change it any way they choose.
I decided to do a digital collage and this is how it turned out.

I did it all with paint shop pro ultimate x2. It is a brilliant programme if you are new to photo manipulation and a good price too.If you buy it at the moment you get a free 2 gigabite flash drive with it.

Back to life and snow and jetlag

Well today is the best ive felt since coming back from L.A as i have had the worst jet lag ever.
Its the first day i havnt had a fuzzy head and have done everthing right without making mistakes and feeling hungover without having a drink haha.
What did we do on our day off in L.A ? we decided to go to the zoo in the morning and then Santa Monica in the afternoon.We had a fab time and the weather was gorgeous.
Arrived home on Thursday evening and went and collected Harry from his aunty Margarets, the welcome we got was wonderful as i had really really missed him so much.
Spent eleven hours on Friday catching up with internet orders and sending them all out and then we packed the van with goodies for the Stevenage show.
So the weekend saw Gordon at the show and Harry and i at the shop how we did it i just dont know .

Then on Suday the snow started and Harry was fascinated by it.He absolutely loves it and you cant keep him in.

The pictures above are of the entrance to the Zoo, Santa Monica Pier and Santa Monica Boulivard.

Harry in the park,Pleasley Nature reserve which is a two minute walk from the shop and a snow scene in the cemetary just up the road from where we live.

So i think ive caught up with everything now and am going to have a very large Gin and Tonic (hic)
