What a Day!

Class3

As you know it was my third class yesterday ... and yes it did snow! ... I left home at 7.00am and by 7.03am ... I was sliding sideways across a main road into a roundabout ... no damage and I was able to continue with my journey ... but what a hairy start. Luckily about 20 miles outside Cambridge there was very little or no snow ... so things improved! I did tell you that snow, cars and me ... well we just don't get on!

So I get to LB Crafts and I realised I have left a few supplies at home ... luckily the lovely Karen was there to sort me out ... then I went to collect some cut n dry foam off the window sill where I had left it to dry ... stood up and whacked my head on the window recess ... solid brick ... and you know when you get a big lump and you have to keep feeling it to check it still hurts ... well that was me! Luckily only mildly concussed ... and you know me ... I like to exaggerate :0)CSCover

The great thing was my ladies were all fab as usual ... some new faces and some return visits ... so I have n't frightened anyone away yet ... we got straight on with our metal magic class and things picked up!

Boy! ... did they pick up on a grand scale ... the lovely Lin Brown popped in with exciting tales of things to come for this year from CHA ... can't wait to get my grubby little hands on loads of the new stuff ... and it was great to have her back ... and ...

Get this ... I am sooooo excited ... honoured ... shocked ... happy ... delirious ... chuffed ... excited ... doh! ... I have said that already ... but I made the front cover of Craft Stamper ... did I tell you I was excited :0) I am sure a better piccie of the cover will be available shortly ... but for now ... mine looks like this :0) It is a packed and fabulous issue ... with some great projects from Lin too ... I am sooooooo excited :0)

I am off to do my happy dance some more and consider reasons for knocking on every door in my road ... just to start up a conversation where I can slip the magazine in :0)

Have a good Sunday everyone :0)

Hi Linda,
I had to leave you a comment today to tell you what my friend brought home from CHA..... A sample of a class that Tim is doing... It's Made from several sizes of the Linda E Roses. Now I know that you received your inspiration from Wendy Vecchi... but alas Everytime I look at these projects I think of you! Congratulations, you made it. You are a super star!

P.S. You should come here and teach a class, there is no snow here you know!

Susan said...

Susan

Trish said...

I am glad you had a good class, and that you arrived safely! I do love snow though...
I received my Craft Stamper last week, and noticed your lovely tin on the front cover. It had to be yours, no one else does tins. It's beautiful too!
Well done, all this recognition is very deserved.

Angela said...

Lousette said...

AngelaC said...

My copy of CS arrived on Saturday... I saw the bean tin on the front cover and thought, "Mmmmm, I think I know who made that". And I was right! Congratulations Linda - fab work and well deserved.

Artyjen said...

Huge congrats! It is exciting times for sure to have something on the front cover ;)
xoxo

Carmen said...

Blimey what a day and a half!! The car/snow incident would have had me needing new underwear never mind teach a class!

But what a way to compensate, getting on the cover eh? Was going to offer some cheesy mash to make you feel better but can't imagine a celeb eating my cheesy mash. Wow! Very well done and I would just go knock on the doors, wedge your foot in the door so they can't shut it and toot toot away! You deserve it :o)

Lori said...

Congratulations, Linda! Well deserved! I love that mag, great stuff. I don't think anyone would want to watch me do the happy dance for you, but let's just say it's all in my head, since you whacked yours out, lol.

IsaNorris said...
