Erm, yes, well, soz and all that

Well, what can I say, Yes I have been busy, but so is everyone else and they manage to blog all the time. I'm failing, but I am hoping to improve. Honestly. I am trying to organise my work life a little better (wonders will never cease if I manage it, lol). When I had a 'normal' job and did freelance in my spare time I coped much better, but on giving up the daily drudge I seem to be all over the place lurching from one mad panic to the next. Not good so I've made a decision to sort it all out. Tips on a postcard please to the panic master, looney bin towers, back of beyond.

I have some exciting news to tell you. I was asked by that mad woman Nikky to join the Polkadoodles Design Team and I said yes (oh boy what have I let myself in for). Now I just need to get my fat arse in gear and work out what I'm supposed to be doing. I feel I'm going to be plaguing the rest of the team with stupid questions, but you've got to learn these things sometime haven't you. I'm sorry ladies if I drive you to distraction. Seriously I don't even know anything about Mr Linky, let alone using it, I'm a hopeless case I'm afraid, LMAO.

Exciting news No.2 I just can't tell you yet, but it is very exciting and I could be designing more than just downloads soon. If it comes off I'll be a very happy busy little bee.

And I received another blog award from the lovely Kirsticoo http:/ , Pop over to Kirsti's blog and have a looksey at her wonderful projects, you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much Kirsti, I'm really touched. It was I'm sorry to say a while ago but I forgot all about it in my last post, really really sorry Kirsti. I know I'm supposed to be doing something, but I haven't discovered what that is, when I know I'll do it!

I made the long trip to Birmingham to see whats what at the Stitches trade show last week. There wasn't really much that was new or really exciting, and I was quite surprised by the companies that weren't exhibiting that are usually there. There definitely wasn't the buzz that there normally is. Tim Holtz's new goodies caused a stir, but you wouldn't really expect any less would you, gorgeous new colours for inks and die cuts, well I'll deffo be needing them. Don't know how I've managed without them till now, lol. There were a couple of new stamp companies there, one of which Ladybug Crafts ink are definitly worth looking out for. Their sample cards were beautifully made and very inspirational. Wild Rose Studio were there and they also had some cutesome lovelyness to temp all the reatailers. Look out for these in the shops if your thing is cute teddies, animals etc.

And I went to the Make It show at the weekend. What can I say, very disappointing. Why why why do we always lose out to the North. Many companies weren't there because they were at another show. If these companies don't come down south then people won't go to the shows. We have very few shows down here, and it's looking like there won't be any soon. A poor state of affairs. It was nice to see a few of the popular companies had made the effort. Shame a few more couldn't do the same!

I've been fiddlefartarsing about with this for what seems like hours. I'm giving up now, pictures don't want to load, and it won't let me copy and paste, WTF is going on. Cards and more will have to wait till next time, sorry all but my patience has just run out tonight.

Till next time, take care all.

Hi girly, you need to change to new layout in your post editor. Then it is much easier to upload. It uploads them to a seperate box and so you cant really lose them like before. Plus you can copy and paste like before. only bad thing is no spell check...
Congrats on making the design team, and congrats on your other news. Mwah xxx

Hi Dee, was just on Polka Doodles adding my vote and noticed your South Coast comment. Saw from your profile where you live and guess what-I live in Worthing! Couldn't get much closer than that.
Perhaps we should have a get together with Kerry some time.
