I have been invited by my wonderful crafty friend - Susan Pickering Rothamel of USArtquest to go and stay with her at her home & studio in America and have one to one tuition with her for a whole 5 days!!!
Can you believe it??
Susan is going to teach me how to use every single one of her amazing products from the Paper Perfect Adhesive to the incredible Mica products that they do! I cannot begin to tell you how honoured I feel at being given this amazing opportunity. I am truly humbled.
When does this kind of opportunity ever arise - ever??
I am thrilled that I will be learning from this amazingly talented lady on a one to one basis - in her own studio and home - in America!!
Aaaaaagggggggghhhhhhhh - So excited!
Of course, a major part of this is so that I can learn all the techniques that are up in that amazingly creative mind of Sue's - and that I can then come back and share them all with you via my shows on QVC & Instore Demonstrations - Cannot wait to share everything with you all.
So, there you go - that's the first bit of amazing news!
Number 2 amazing news is.......................
I have joined together with another amazingly talented lady on this side of the pond - Lindsay Mason to teach workshops together!
Lindsay and I have been friends for many years now and have always wanted to do crafty things together so we have decided to teach here in Lancashire!
We have our first workshop booked for the 15th May and ideas are swimming around our heads as to what we are going to teach - but more importantly, we cannot wait to have fun with you all and share our tips and tricks!
We are currently finalising exactly what projects we are going to be doing - we have so many ideas, we are trying to fit it all in to one day. As soon as we have it all confirmed, we will let you all know!
In the meantime, if you would like to pencil your name in before the places go - as we have a very limited number of places available - please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be the first to know!
Told you it was all exciting news!!
Anyway, best crack on - demonstrating at Samuel Taylors in Skipton tomorrow and need to decide what to wear - Do you think I could go in my pyjamas, much comfier for crafting!!
Oh, almost forgot - don't forget to enter my card competition in the entry below - closes next Friday!!
