Well, those of us who have dared to chat all love it! If you havent had a go yet then please feel free to login and join us…you will generally find someone in the chatroom at 8pm (BST) every night and it would be lovely to find some more friends so feel free. If you want some crafty advice just shout and I will generally be around to answer your questions live.
Don’t worry about your spelling cos we can’t spell either and we dont attempt to, it’s funnier that way!
Don’t worry about not being good on your computer cos it really doesnt matter (it’s actually easier than sending an email, if you can press the keys to spell a word and hit the enter key then you’re good to go!!).
Don’t worry about not knowing what to say…cos we all talk rubbish most of the time anyway, just say whatever you fancy so long as it’s not rude!
Don’t worry about security…all you have to do is click on the live chat link on the right hand side of this page and create a username (ignore the profile bit if you want) and then login! All anyone can see is your username, no other details are shown so it’s all completely safe and secure. You can even private chat with someone if you want to, it’s entirely up to you! Once you’ve been there once we can guarantee you’ll be logging in every night!
Hope to see you there!
We now have a live chat room!!
Just click on the link in the sidebar of this site and you can chat to me LIVE! Obviously I won’t be here 24 hours but I will post times and dates of when I’m online so we can all meet up and have a gossip! SO, I can also now announce the launch of something I’ve been wanting to do for absolutely ages which is my LIVE CRAFT CLINIC. Basically, if you have any kind of crafty problem login and ask me about it and I’ll try to help as much as I can. We will be getting a webcam too so we can look and chat at the same time hopefully but that’s a whole other story!
So I hope you’re all going to join me at our regular chat sessions!
FIRST CHAT SESSION… WED 16TH APRIL AT 8.00 pm
FRIDAY 18TH APRIL AT 8.00 pm – FIRST EVER CRAFT CLINIC
Watch out for the next dates coming soon!
Just finished our April Swarms this weekend and once again we had a great time, despite the spilling of tea (never mind Debs!). We decorated a ready made gift bag by cutting apertures and adding embellies and made a matching concertina card. And We finally managed to master the elusive end caps feature too!
Well, I seem to be shifting this bug at long last after 2.5 weeks and with it my mojo seems to be returning, fingers crossed! We’ve had 4 classes this week so nice to see all my ladies again, and here are some of the projects we’ve made this week.
Starting off with this cute handbag card which is made by hand without a template and is easy peasy. Papers are from my own collection and are available on the website. The bag sits about 8″ tall and pops open to reveal whatever you wish inside. The second project was this square card with a simple pocket which hides a little tag inside. I think we all loved these (probably cos of the nice girly pink papers!!).
I’m not quite sure where it’s gone this week, but my mojo seems to have vanished! I think it’s partly because of this stupid chest infection which I’ve had for the last couple of weeks so I still feel under par and can’t find any inspiration at all, although I have to say my lovely ladies at cardmaking tonight cheered me up with our usual mirth & banter! It’s a good job they know me well or they’d think I was a complete witch, I don’t half crack the whip over them during class, they get no sympathy! I have to say it’s all very light hearted though and we have a great laugh and do take the mickey out of each other most of the time.
Tonight’s cards were really lovely and I will upload them with instructions after Thursday’s class as they’re using some of my new papers and are really pretty I have to admit. So, I need to get my inspirational cap on as I have Cricut swarms this weekend and I haven’t decided what we’re doing yet!! And then you all ask me where I get my ideas from – now you know!…I think I must work best under extreme pressure as I seem to constantly be putting projects together the day before class for some reason! After every class I say right, let’s get organised, but for some reason it just don’t work for me. Still, so long as everyone is happy on the day that’s all that counts and I love doing Swarms, it’s my fave class as I get to show everyone what their lovely Bugs will do and hopefully spread a little inspiration.
Well, I feel much better now except for my toothache and OMG. the giant spider which has just nearly crawled across my foot, thank goodness I saw the cat watching it! eeeeeekkkk!! OOO and I think they must be coming out of hibernation now, cos I moved a box in the shop earlier on and nealry touched a giant tarantula hiding underneath some chalkboard pens, yuuuuuuukkkkkkkkkk! So I chucked it outside, it was one of those horrid big black ones with fat hairy legs and bodies….shiver…..said chalkboard pens are now in the bin, coudlnt bear to use them after that little encounter…. anyway I need to move now, I don’t know where the flippin spidey has gone and the cat’s still looking so it’s lurking near my feet somewhere…
