I Have Some... Exciting News...

...ok, so... I have some very exciting news... where to start is the thing though... I mean, me? Lost for words? Never! Well, ok, today maybe! I am beyond excited because I am about to embark on a new creative adventure and I am now able to tell everyone about it now, which makes it easier for me because I have been about to spontaneously combust several times in the past few weeks because I wanted to say something.... and now, with things set in place and a definite date, I can talk about it... I didn't want to jinx it and all that.


So... I am very honoured to say that I am joining Creative Expressions as a Demonstrator... starting next Tuesday, December 6th with two shows on Create & Craft TV. And... there's more excitement because... I will be bringing Studio 490 on to UK shopping telly for the first time. Now, this is something that I am so proud to be allowed to do... you all know my passion for everything Wendy Vecchi and Studio 490 along with all the lovely bits and bobs that go with this fabulous range! Obviously I am a bit nervous as I have never done anything like this ever... but I had a screen test and loved every minute of it so hopefully the excitement of playing with the fabby products will mean that I don't end up camera shy and waffling on alarmingly...

Anyways... that's my news... I just wanted to share it... and to say thank you to every single person who has left me a comment or message for the past few years where I have been a bit in the wilderness after losing my beloved career as a train driver... believe me, this blog became my outlet when those days were dark and things seemed ever so bleak for me. Your support means the world to me. I am hoping that this new adventure is the next stage of my "journey"... and of course that I don't goof up on live telly... can you imagine? Right... time for bed... as ever, thanks for looking... TTFN!!

Without taking any excitment away, this is nothing more than you deserve. You are bubbly, talented and have always been an ambassador for Studio 490 amongst other things. At last we all get to see your amazing art in real life rather than a picture. Many, many congratulations. Have a ball.
