Exciting News....

...how on Earth I have managed to keep my trap shut is beyond me... you know how I love to talk!  Anyways... I have exciting news!  Darkroom Door have just announced that there is a brand new Creative Team for 2013... and... *pinches self* I have been asked to be a part of it... and of course I said I would have to think about it... for about 2 milliseconds and I am happy to say... I am now part of this fab team!  To visit Darkroom Door, CLICK HERE, and if you fancy having a look at all the amazing art on the blog, CLICK HERE. I am SO chuffed to be asked and ever so honoured to be a part of such a fab team!  Thank you to Rachel Greig for asking me... I can't wait to get started now!  In the meantime, here are a couple of things I made last year as part of my Snazzy's DT using the fab London stamp sets:

Paper Blocking & Texture Stencilled




A vintage stylee card - LOVE that scene




A London blue sky, complete with patchy clouds


In other news... the Room of Stash tidying is still coming along.  Ah, I bet you are thinking "she has been prevaricating again and has done nothing...."   Well, I have actually been doing it... only I got a bit carried away and instead of starting with the really messy bit, I decided to have a clear out of some of my storage drawers (which needed doing before we moved, I said I would do them once we had moved... and never did.  We moved nearly 3 years ago rofl)  I have, thus far, filled three binliners, am on my fourth and I now have 2 drawers empty (hurrah) which means I have more storage, so the crap stash on the floor will have a home!   I have also tidied out and organised the desk drawers that have been filled, filled and more filled with bits and stuff and rubbish and junk.... so they are all neat!  I know! Get me!  It is one of those mammoth jobs that a few hours ago I was thinking "oh what have I started?"  But am now thinking "I am virtuous and organised and I too will have an orderly Room of Stash... "  *well, until I start playing in it again lol*   That is the plan anyway.  Watch this space because I will be blogging pics of the finished (and sparkling) room and I am giving myself a deadline - so tomorrow... there will be pics!  Also in other news... did I tell you I am going to America, the Land of the Cheesy Chester Cheeto?  I am not sure I mentioned it (snort) and it is now.... SEVEN DAYS til I leave these shores!  A few peeps have asked how long it will take me to get there.  Well, I, being not made of monies, am going by a most circuitous route, leaving from home at about 6am and getting to LA at 19.30 ... not bad on the face of it, save for they are 8 hours behind.  *I have tried to do the maths bit and confooosed meself so I will let you work out the real time etc lol* I fly to Minneapolis first and then onto LA, just call me jet-setter rofl   Anyways, I best get a move on, I have to get this room done!   *a late night ahead methinks...*  Thanks for looking... TTFN

What is IT about the first of the year that bites us all with the organization bug? I spent about 12 hours working in my art room and even labeled everything (which was a bit scary but damn it I kept opening the same drawer thousands of times and still not finding what I was looking for!). Any way CONGRATULATIONS on the new design team (which I'll have to go check out as I have never heard of them before) and have a safe trip to the states. Love your blog....it always makes me smile which I so appreciate!

Gillian said...

Well done Hels, can't wait to see your work! I have already posted on their blog. xxxx

inkytoes said...

Congratulations! will be looking forward to you Darkroom Door projects. Too bad it isn't summer or i could drive to Minneapolis and share some Cheesy Chester Cheeto's during your layover. But a 4 hr drive one way in the winter is a little risky in this part of the country. Hope you have a great trip. will be waiting to hear all the details.
