I called Trimcraft today and had a word with the demo manager there.. and now I'm free!!!! I have been thinking long and hard for ages about this, as Jane would tell you!.. but never actually plucked up the courage to do anything about it... well, today's that day! I no longer work for Trimcraft.
I've had an okay time over this past year, I loved doing the demonstrations and having a good old natter with like minded crafters, but it just wasn't 'doing it' for me, iyswim.. let's just say 'certain' companies have a better understanding of the demonstration programme! (yep.. Katy, that means yours!)... So.. decision made.. done.. dusted... finished!
In addition to this, I have been breeding washing.. I'm sure the more I wash, the more appears.. I never understand why this is!
I've also just been down to the vets with the poopies for the routine wormers.. Scooby has maintained at around 24 kg, Holly is around 15 kg so has put on a kg, and Truly is now just over 10kg and was 9.3 I think... She is looking so much better..
Will be back later with some photos hopefully.. I've been busy making cards but not for here at the minute... sorry! And yes... Hazel, I have your package all wrapped and ready to go, just sorry it's taken so long to sort it.. I haven't forgotten.. xx Thank you for being patient!
Right... off now to drown my sorrows in a bottle of Glenfiddich... not! TBH, I have umpteen things on the go at the minute, and something had to go... now I feel more at ease!

I'm at Papermill in York this evening on behalf of Trimcraft, doing a Loyalty Event, so these are a few of the bits I'm taking with me.
This was covered with the lovely paper from DCWV Nursery Boys. I just love the new packs, they are so more-ish.
Laura Ashley stamps and papers on this one.Very simple tea bag folding - this one isn't quite finished yet.
And this is a BIA book I made as a prezzie for one of Martina's friends. I made a card to match it too, but that was just basically the same papers. This was from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies papers.. they are luvverly!
And last but not least, my favourite.. a little mini album of Holly and Scooby, put together by Carley. I made a presentation bag/box for it to go in too.. How Sweet!

This is the start photo..
and this is the result..
Apart from dabbling with this, I have been doing some very creative stuff for a VERY lovely person.. but cannot reveal any of this at the moment under any circumstances.. lips are very tightly sealed..
I have also had a demo this weekend up in Rochdale, at the Range.. what a store, what lovely customers and Faye, the fantastic assistant in the craft department, made my day a real hoot.. it was really busy all day.. So, thank you to everybody who made it perfect.
Yesterday was spent putting up some new fencing, and my gazebo from last year. Primarily put up for the puppies to sit under, it was lovely to sit in the shade until gone 10pm last night.. what a smashing, hot, sunburny (!!) day.
I'll be back later with some projects I have been making this last week for my demo's and the loyalty event at Papermill on Thursday.. see you there from 4pm to 8pm??

Sorry I've not been around much this week, I've been in a bit of a tiz after losing Biela last week, and with work, dogs, work, cats, work (you get the picture??) I've been a tad occupied.
But - I have found time to nip back and say Hi.. and even upload some bits I've been working on.
Firstly, I want to introduce you to Senna. This is B's brother. Playing out in the honeysuckle....isn't he luvverly, and he's coping so well without his brother.
Secondly, my two poopies.. Scooby (L) and Holly (R). I don't know what Scooby is doing.. lol.. but I think Carley took a brilliant photo of them - don't you?
These two photos were taken yesterday. They are a few of the lovely flowers that Mum bought me for my birthday on Tuesday.. all my favourite flowers in a lovely bouquet.. Thank you!
Now... do you want to see some cards??
These are a few bits I've been working on for my demo at the Range, Rochdale this weekend. If you're close by, why not call in to say Hi.
The projects above were made using the new DCWV papers - they are simply LUSH! Blossoms and Butterflies has to be my favourite, which is what was used to make the BIA book above. It just needs some ribbons and then it's finished.
In the collection of new papers is also Nursery Boys and Nursery Girls. They are just so pretty. Projects with them too coming soon!
The other two cards were made with the new Dovecraft papers. Again, they are really lovely.. dragons and fairies, pets... take a look.. they're really lovely.
Last but not least for today is my daughters new creation. She is making a mini scrapbook for her friend Laura, and has used the DCWV Spring pack. Very pretty and summery. I'm not sharing the inside pages just yet as they haven't been finished., but I think she's done a really good job of it so far, don't you?
I hope you like the photos. We do still have Truly living with us, the home which was planned didn't work out so we still have the pleasure of her company. She is a fantastic little dog, who has her little quirky ways which are so cute. She gets on so well with Holly and Scoobs that I could be tempted to keep the little dot to myself.. she's adorable!!!! Only thing is, if I did that I wouldn't be able to keep fostering for Jackie - and of course the dogs who need all the help they can.
Well.. that's me for now. Work is calling again, so out to my Studio I go when I've grabbed another cuppa..
