Want to join me for some crafting in Germany???

I'm SOOOO excited!!!! I've booked my place at this year's Convention in Germany and can't wait! Convention is an amazing experience. None of the Craft retreats I have attended have ever come close! You spending a whole weekend with hundreds of demonstrators from three different countries; crafting, sharing business ideas, exchanging gifts and product ideas, laughing so much - and that's just the start. I would recommend convention to EVERYONE!

So do you want to join me? How does a FREE ticket to convention sound???

Every new demonstrator that signs up in May will receive FREE registration to this fabulous event, worth £149. You'll only need to cover the cost of your travel and accommodation.

So what's in the starter kit? Whatever you want!!!!

The new starter kit costs £99 and is FULLY customisable! You get to choose what is in your kit - whatever you want from either of the two current catalogues to the value of £130. You also get a business starter pack worth £45 and there are no shipping costs on your starter kit.

Stampin' Up! is an amazing opportunity whether you just want to get a discount on your craft supplies, you want to make a bit of 'pocket money' or you are looking for a business opportunity. Contact me today to find out more.

In Love With Stampin - Summer Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Wow! May already! This is a scheduled post so I hope it works!

I've been really busy lately, what with starting back teaching and the new Summer Mini catalogue has been the perfect excuse to get me going again!  I'm taking part in the ILWS blog hop toady and you should have come here from Anthea's blog her work is lovely and I can't wait to see what she's come up with.

For today I'm sharing a project that I've been wanting to try for AGES.  I keep seeing owls everywhere at the moment and I decided that I wanted to make my own.  So some web browsing later I decided to just go for it and designed my own pattern for this little cutie!  I've named her Tallulah.

She is made using the divine new designer fabric called Twitterpated - I love that name :)  The buttons are from the subtles pack and her beak and feet are some scraps of felt I had in my stash.  I had so much fun playing with my sewing machine, can't wait to do some more.

So short and sweet as I have a pile of marking to finish.  To continue the 'hop' head over to Emily's Blog and see what she's done.

I'll be back later with lots of exciting news!
