Day to day

Right now I am all excited about Stitches, the craft trade show that is held annually at the NEC, Birmingham. I demoed at the Kars stand for the last five editions. But this year I will be demonstrating at the Sizzix stand for the first time, it is super exciting for me as I LOVE die cutting - my area of expertise - and in particular Sizzix dies.


I took a photo of my room a few weeks ago. Pretty much all is there albeit be on the floor as I needed the table space. Thing is I am trying to give away any stuff that is nice but that I know I won't use as my taste has either changed or it is something that is not readily available (which means I can't use for articles anymore). And thanks for the lovely comments about missing my cards. I will try to upload more because the funniest thing has happened now: I am actually making cards for fun that I can share immediately! But they are not as many as I used to make before for my demo/workshops, so they will have to be scattered around.

Photography wise, I am still learning. I am taking a few months to learn as much as possible about the skills that I am not so confident, building up. I am taking courses, doing practice shoots and reading as much as I can fit in. 




While in Mallorca I did a photo shoot with one friend of mine from my university days. I had such a fun time with her and her family that confirmed my love for lifestyle photography and specially portraits. I just love capturing people's real beauty which, I think, comes from within and sometimes flourishes in a visible way that the camera captures. That is my aim.

I wondered if you have ever thought of designing stamps to fit Sizzix dies..just a thought. i know many are now doing theis for nesties but no-one for Sizzix that I'm aware of.

Beautiful pictures.

Have a good time at the NEC Paula, I think Ali's idea is great, because as you say die cutting is your expertise, I came on one of your die cutting courses at Creative Pastimes some years ago and learnt so much... love the picture you posted that you took when you were away... have fun...
