Are you sitting comfortably ? then I shall begin..........

Hello guys, do you remember 'ages' ago I said I was really excited but didn't want to say anything just in case I jinxed it...well now that I have made it sound far more exciting than you will probably think.....I AM PUBLISHED !

Yes, I said 'published' baby ! after all these years two magazines came across my blog at about the same time and asked me to be in there magazines... the fabulous 'Cloth, Paper, Scissors' are doing a small article in their 'muse' section about the little houses I have started to make and are on Etsy and it is the issue that is out soon if not already.

The other magazine is called 'Making gifts' a new English publication which so far is wicked (for my American friends... wicked = brilliant) I have made a couple of projects for them, which are in the issue coming out in may I think and they also want me to contribute further projects which are already on the go and hopefully a small article where they 'meet me', my own little interview oooooh.

This year has gone so well so far, just hope it continues I have so much I want to do this year that I have numerous books to write everything in and so if I slack a little on here i don't mean to and I hope you forgive me :) I will add another giveaway soon.

Well as for now do you want to see what I have been up to so far ???
I can't hear you !!!!!!!
Ok here are some pictures of stationery that I have made, journals and ATC's, I have more things to show you but I need to photograph them first, my soldering is getting a little you remember my first post about it ? ( I think it was one of my first posts and I think I used a whole reel of solder on one small glass slide ! ridiculous and it was so lumpy...I need a new iron but it wasn't too bad, I'll show you later..

One more thing, I am going to set up my 'Craft Tv' blog this weekend as it is a Bank holiday on Monday too woo hoo, this means that I am going to design a project, video and photograph ho to make it with templates, instructions etc then I will put together a pretty goodie bag of things to use in the project and provide a password for it all at a small cost which will be advertised here on my blog and on Etsy, there will be a limit to the number of spots for each project... by the end of the year I hope to set up a couple of groups too, online and in person to teach crafts too or just to get together and craft things !

And finally.... this is a horrible photo but I have gone over to the dark side and I must admit I don't agree with 'blondes have more fun' anymore ;) nudge nudge wink wink !
