The last couple of weeks in pictures!

With Suze Weinberg at QVC - Such a truly lovely woman and SO talented! I was so honoured to spend time with her at work and at QVC! She is so funny!























My Workshops at Dawn Bibby Design Studio
I teach every month - Simple Styles in Cardmaking in the morning and Scrapbooking in the afternoon






























































Must say Hello to Lucy & Carolyn above with myself and Dawn!
They had travelled all the way from London to come on my workshops!
I felt so honoured that somebody would travel all that way to see me - thankyou girls!
It was so lovely to meet you and spend the day with you. See you again soon!

My beautiful little boy - who is today finally better!
He has had a terrible week with a horrid viral infection that came out in a rash all over his poor little body - Finally, today he is better after just wanting to spend the week cuddled up with me on the settee dozing in and out of sleep! So glad he is back to his normal gorgeous self!




















Last, but not least......................... BLOG CANDY


A big bumper set of Craftwork Card Candy as promised!
This Candy contains Die CUt Images; Die Cut Messages; Pearlescent Background Card; Pearlescent Printed Papers; Card Wraps and Card Candy!
Gorgeous!!
To enter, as always, just leave a comment! Closes next Friday 25th June!!
Good Luck Everyone

First blog post ever! Love the Craftwork blog candy, the colours are great. Where do you find time to present, make samples and keep blogs/photos up to date? Mind you, with all your exciting stock you would have to lock me out the store at the end of the day! Time takes on a life of its own when I craft.

Had a lovely time at the shop on Wednesday, Rosie (the chihuahua) says thank you to Rena for the water, I love all the goodies I found - including more paper to stroke! So glad your little one is better, he is gorgeous. Thanks to you all for the inspiration and help introducing me to ATC's, lovely cards, scrapbooks etc., I made a memory book for my friend's birthday, she thought it wonderful - all down to all of you. Penelope.

Phyllis said...

Hi Amy,
Glad to see you are getting back to normal now Ben is well again.
Dawn was giving Anthony into trouble on Friday for being messy which made them both laugh. I was thoroughly enjoying his antics. You have a very infectious laugh and when you are on it is very refreshing to see. Keep it up.

hi, just wanted to say that we had a blast at the class with Lindsay last week. I finished my lovely PINK canvas at home and love it. We had such fun and hope to see you again at another "play day", you had me in stitches. btw, I was cracked up at your last QVC show,...hillarious viewing. x

Hi Amy
Just a line to let you know I managed to sort out my adapter for my Slice. I was telling you about it at the QVC craft day at the QE2.
It was a great day and you are always bubbly and make me laugh.
Hope to see you again soon.

Emma said...

Hi Amy,

Just wanted to say thank you for making me feel so welcome at the QVC event. I had a blast and as you said, all those first time demonstrating nerves, just disappeared once I got into the swing of things!

Hope you're having a lovely relaxing weekend and I'll look forward to hopefully seeing you again!

Tweet you soon... :)
Love and hugs, Emma
