I'm still alive!

Sorry I haven't updated in ages - but I've been so busy (not complaining though - it's great!)

So what have I been up to since my last post?

Well on Saturday 20th I spent the day at the Pickleberry Papercrafts crop - Kate has started a sketch challenge and you can see my examples on her blog here, the challenge runs for a month and there's a chance to win a prize - fingers crossed!

Then on the Monday I was back down there for a class with Jane - the first of a series of technique classes, and this one was Doodling. Jane was a fab teacher - she broke everything down into simple steps, and we all came away with a fab little tag book filled with doodles as a little reference guide - I haven't had time to finish colouring mine and photograph it yet, but will do soon!

Then this weekend was the first of my run of events! Friday I attended a Pamper Evening at my old school, it was a bit rubbish to be honest, but I made a profit so that's the main thing. Then Saturday I was at a primary school for a Summer Fayre - this one was much better - 3 hours out in the glorious sunshine (and yes I did get burnt!) and my stuff proved really popular - especially notebooks.

I'm now manically trying to make stuff to restock for A Makey Do on 11th July in Sandwich (pop and along and say hi if you're in the area) and a summer fete on the 18th - and I've just had an order through MISI for 10 notebooks!

Well done if you made it to the end of this post - will try not to leave it so long next time! I'll leave you with a pic of my stall from the weekend!

Hugs
