Dawn I'm borrowing your title - come on someone own up - they're not just nicking all your time they're nicking mine too!!!

Ok Ok Ok I know - look the last two weeks have grown wings and emmigrated somewhere far away...

In truth I've been a little bit floaty the past fortnight - so much has happened and I have so much to fit in!!! I've been working on a rather interesting and new project which is far too much fun to let things like accountancy get in the way - sorry can't divulge but what I will say is I'm loving it and I'm also learning alot. New skills - I mean of the life kind not the craft kind - though a few of those have materialised en route aswell (the craft kind not the life kind) - new people, a new perspective on this fabulous hobby (that I am lucky enough to call part of my work!) and a chance to prove something to myself and hopefully to others. Lets just say its something I never even thought I'd get involved in, its pushing the problems I have with my nerve damage right to its limits but its turning out to be great fun and in some ways just like my demos I can say my job is my medicine - long story as to why but you wouldn't be that interested believe me ...

Ok for those of you wondering, really I can't tell and if I did you probably wouldn't think it was exciting but I do!!!! :o)

So what else though I hear you say - surely that can't have taken up all your time... well, sadly I've also had to fit in the book keeping because I have to keep up with my other work as its only a short term project I'm involved with so I'm generally pooped.

And next week it all starts again - but with the added bonus (and I do mean bonus cos I LURVE doing 'em hee hee) - I've got a couple of magazine bits to do and my other joy in life - a demo to prepare for for a new promo! (And if I'm lucky maybe I'll get to see the other love of my life - my hubby.... but that may be pushing it!)

It would appear my antiquated eight year old pc decided to join me in the "tired and worn out stakes" and gave up the ghost on internet access. It took me three days to get back on the world wide ether to communicate again so here I am!

Just a couple of things as I have so much to do before my little head hits the pillow and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz land takes over!

(1) to all you ladies on the Island last Saturday night at Crafting Around it was lovely to see you!!!! I hope you got lots of inspiration to go and try new things. I'll start posting the pictures next week. I'm so looking forward to checking out Brenda's new shop in Newport when I see you all next month so put the date in your diary - its on my list of demo's on here so go do it now!!!

(2) If you want to know whats hip and happening in crafting you need to follow this website - click here to visit Becks Faggs blog - she's our woman in the know at Docrafts and head of Product. If Becks doesn't know it its not worth knowing! So why not keep up to date with all the latest news by clicking into her blog (PS you may have seen her on QVC recently launching one of our TSVs)

(3) I have to find the date but if you are in the vaccinity of the Glitter Pot in the next couple of weeks Clare Curd is demonstrating Forever Friends, her own Signature Range and also a rather super exclusive set of Daisy and Dandelion stamps made just for the GP. I've never got there myself but many tell me its an amazing craft store!!! So how do I know how super this set of stamps are - now that would be telling :o) Oh go on then, cos I got sneeky ickle peek of them hot of the proverbial press a couple of weeks ago..... ooooooo I do love my job!!!

Anyway have to dash - hubby has been visiting his mother in the home tonight and I think I may be soothing a sore brow tonight.

Lots of love to you all - please bear with me in this stunningly busy time and I'll get more projects on asap (when I can I will tell more) and also please stay in touch - I love to hear from you
