About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job. Well I hope you like what you see on my blog. I'm always grateful for people taking a peek and leaving messages x

Happy UK bank holiday...

Hello and a warm welcome on this dreary bank holiday. It's always the way here in the uk for it to be rainy and dull on a bank holiday.... However that does mean lots of craft time yay. Hope you are all having a lovely bank holiday, I have spent the last few days creating samples for the lovely Toni at stamps by me limited. The next show is on create and craft 8th June - here's a few samples of what I have made. There will be 3 new fab sets of stamps...

These backgrounds have been created using stix2 fabric paints.
I will share more samples nearer the time.
I have also been super busy doing Stix2 demos and I have to say despite nerves I've really enjoyed it. I have been to some lovely places, met fantastic people and used some amazing products. It's been brilliant and I feel truly blessed. 
Here's some pics of my time demoing over the last couple of weekends.

Thank you all for supporting me, looking at my blog and leaving messages it's always appreciated, and I promise I will catch up on everyone's blog tomorrow. I'm off with hubby to the cinema to see Pirates of the Caribbean tonight looking forward to it! 
Have a great evening and take care xxx
