Bits And Bobs Friday – Demos, Magazines And A Question

I’ve been in an all-absorbed frenzy of making this week to meet some deadlines, so much so that I am starting to question my sanity a bit. I’ve been so work-focussed that on Wednesday I mistook my door bell for the telephone ringing. Erm? Eeek! Yeah, ok so might not be that big a deal, they both ring and everything so I could be excused, except I did it twice! So yesterday I was extra vigilant as I was expecting a delivery but then it never turned up – D’oh!

Please tell me that when you have your creative hat on that you do mad things too? I mean is it just me? Oh boy! I think there is no hope for me.

I might try and take some time off this bank holiday weekend – got a feeling that I might need it! 

Except I can’t take Saturday off because I will be in Hobbycraft Woking demoing for Fiskars with the Fuse and I’m excited because I have a new die to try out (it doesn’t take much to make me happy!).

I’ll be there from 10am to 6pm so do come on by and say ‘Hi’ if you are in the area. Also there will be a 25% off ALL the Fuse products running whilst I’m in the store – Oooo! So might be worth checking it out and stocking up?

I’ve got some more demos coming up this month:

Hobbycraft Crawley – 10th May 2014

Hobbycraft Maidstone – 17th May 2014

Hobbycraft Croydon – 31st May 2014

Another thing causing a bit of a stir this week, this time in facebook, is the latest issue of Simply Cards and Papercraft (issue 123). Have you seen it yet?

Oh boy are you in for a treat, there is an Indigoblu stamp set as the cover gift this month which has made a lot of Indigoblu fans very happy!

My offering this month are some silhouette style cards using some of the Cottage Cutz dies available over at CraftsULove.

Thanks for all the wonderful tips and ideas in the comments for yesterday’s Journaling post, it is great hearing about where everyone does their art journaling.

Ok, I have another question for you – do any of you use affiliation programs on your blog? I would love to hear your views on them, anything you have to share would be great whether it is positive or negative.


Have a fun Friday.
