Nothing new made so far this week :O(( I have been having a really bad time with my pain and I am trying to rest...which is really annoying cos I have so many ideas floating about my head at the moment...and you can bet when I do feel up to getting inky and messy that the Crafters Block will return!!
So why am I posting if I have nowt to show then? Well, last November a lady called Katriel Costello emailed me asking if I would be interested in doing a Reader Story in the Cardmaking & PaperCraft magazine. She had seen my Blog and was interested to know how Blogging had changed my life.
I am usually a little bit shy (yes!! I am really!!! I know you don't believe me, but I am !! ) Anyways, I decided to go for it, after some encouragement from Grim, Andrea and Linda.
So this week, the magazine has hit the shelves and there is my story. For a start, it is a lot more indepth that I expected, there are some lovely pics of cards I have made, it is so exciting to see your own work there in print!! But, the main piccie of me...well, all I will say is that it was a great party and the Pina Colada's went down a treat!! The sunburn is courtesy of the mini heatwave in Cornwall a couple of years ago, I am a fair English Rose (don't laugh!!!) and me and the sun really have not got the best relationship!! The little extra's in my hair were courtesy of the Pina Colada's, namely, cocktail umbrella's and plastic monkeys!! Best of all, there is a photo of the Blog page and there is my little fur-baby Alfie!! Aw, he is famous at last :O))
Also in the magazine is an article about a friend, Amanda, who has become a Stamping Up! demonstrator. This is well worth reading peeps and I would like to say Congrats to Amanda too.
Thanks for looking and if you have visited my Blog as a result of reading the article, I would love you to post here to tell me what you think!!
