Sunday Round-Up

Ok so here we are, it’s Sunday morning, I’m sat with a HUGE cup of tea in my left hand and typing badly with my right hand, I’m watching The Avengers: Earth’s Mightest Heroes and I’ve just had breakfast of a Matzo with Marmite – Perfect Sunday Morning!

It has been a fabulously busy week I’ve been meeting up with crafty bloggy friends and meeting new crafty folks at various crafty events/ meetings. I’ve come to the conclusion that crafting events are like buses, you know, you wait around for ages and then four come along at the
same time.

I’ve also managed to sneak in a bit of making and I have some slightly different blog posts coming up that I hope you will enjoy!

So one of the bloggy folk I managed to meet this week was the lovely and talented Anika from Anikraft. She was holding her first market stall yesterday (some of you might have seen it mentioned it in my Friday post) and I wanted to go say ‘Hi’ as we hadn’t met in real life yet and show some support ‘coz us maker/ arty/ crafty folk should stick together!

Anika makes absolutely gorgeous things, I’ve always loved her work and they look even more fabulous in real life! I’ll let you know when she does her next market stall but you can always go follower her to find out first hand and of course see her Folksy shop 🙂

And no, she hasn’t got me on commission LOL!

I’m still trying to get my act together and gather up my courage to do a market stall! Maybe
one day.

I had some fabulous and surprising news on Friday morning, Irina (the owner of La-La Land Crafts) spotted this:

Yep, it is my recent article for Papercraft Essentials UK on the cover of the sister magazine published in Australia! Wahoo! I used lots of La-La Land Crafts stamps for an article on using different colouring mediums such as Prismacolor pencils, Copic markers, Kuretake ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens


I was well chuffed (translation: very pleased indeed) as I’ve not made the main cover piccy on the UK Papercraft Essentials yet LOL!

Ok so tea is drunk, Matzo is eaten, cartoons are watched and blog post is finished, better go do some work then!

Enjoy your Sunday.

Big Painty Kisses
