Saturday, October 23



Well guys … tomorrow is here and thanks to the wonders of technology I am indeed blogging from a hotel room in Newport Pagnell.

We have just finished set up and first thing tomorrow morning ArtsyCrafts will begin in earnest.

I have no sneak peeks to show you I am afraid …  but look at the yummy paints … and look how wonderfully they are displayed … I was manager of the paint department tonight don’t you know … the paint department is actually bigger than this … but I just took a picture of the best bit so you would get a rough idea.

The tables are all laid out with all the inks, paints, kits and yummy bits and pieces ready for the morning … the shop is set up … we had pizza for tea  … oh and cake … it was Jo’s 50th birthday so we had yummy chocolate cake!

For all of you that are struggling to sleep tonight because you are worried about Ruby … well worry yo100_4415(1)u not … I have dressed her up … and trust me … John really does know better than to touch that apron … so she won’t be going anywhere :0)

I don’t think I have shown you my Ranger apron before … the Ranger Logo is hand stitched by harp playing cherubs … the metal badges are all made by the wonder Lin Brown … I have a couple of the now famous and much sought after PaperArtsy badges … THE Wendy Vecchi has signed one side and Lord Tim of Holtz has signed the other … you know Tim … the man that can turn sea water into Perfect Pearl mists while rescuing Andrex puppies from a burning inferno and certain death with just the safety cap off some Tonic Studio Scissors … and one swipe of a Distress Ink.

Righty-Ho then … I am off to bed … I have a very early start in the morning …
