Hello everyone!
Yesterday I had a fantastic day at the Leigh Handmade and Vintage Fair, my most successful fair ever, HOORAY!!

After a manic week of preparations it was great to see it was all worthwhile.
I was showcasing a new range called SEASIDE SPECIALS and showing lots of other new cards and collages, including my new 1960s collage.
Another brand new series of pictures I'm working on got an airing as well. My COLLECTOR'S CORNER series, which I only started last week.
I'm really excited about these, and will be doing a lot more in the future.

As always it was great to meet so many people and to get so much positive feedback, thanks everyone!!

I'm hoping to have some more news of future fairs very soon, so keep in touch!

Have a look at my piccies of the stall, if there was anything you really regret not buying, email me now and let me know!!!

All set up at last, Mavis once again on hand to help out!

Here is the SEASIDE SPECIALS with beach huts galore!
My SEASIDE SPECIAL flag proudly on display!

The RETRO FOOTBALL range was madly successful again!
Here is the card section with the DAZZLING DECADES in the background!

Hello everyone, I hadn't forgotten all about you, just been away on a much-needed holiday to delightful Dorset!
You must go, it's amazing.......While the masses are frantically trying to look cool in Cornwall, Dorset quietly does its own thing.
Be quick though, those arty London types are already invading!!

It has everything, beautiful countryside, chocolate box cottages, wild heaths and castles, but the best bits are on the stunning coastline.
Go to Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door and Chesil Beach to see what I mean. And go fossil-hunting on the Jurassic Coast......we found some!

So now I'm back to work on new designs, especially for my SEASIDE SPECIALS.

Managed to start a whole new series this week as well called COLLECTOR'S CORNER, inspired by the amazing shops found in places like Bridport and Lyme Regis, more news on that soon!!

Here are a few holiday snaps of Dorset........

Cor blimey, Corfe Castle is amazing!

View from the castle, a good excuse to use that nifty filter on my new camera!
The stunning Durdle Door!
Looking towards Lulworth Cove, yes I used that filter again!

This year's must have item, a snip at £30. Maybe the wrong word there....
Tasty treats found in Bridport, even tastier spelling...

Quirky architecture in Lyme Regis, this is their great museum.
Told you we found some fossils, Charmouth's very own Jurassic Park!

Hello blogsters, sorry I haven't done any new blogs for a while!

Having a slightly manic time at work and have been furiously finding new things to use in my DAZZLING DECADES collages.
So while sourcing and scanning for the 1970s and 1980s, I've been updating my 50s and 60s.

Here is an even better FABULOUS FIFTIES especially for you, with some all new bits and pieces I've recently found.

Stay tuned for more updates on the new 1970s collage!
