I am in an ATC swap group on Facebook and the theme was hats.

I got out my Tim Holtz crazy cats and birds along with the accompanying crazy things stamps.


For the background on this ATC I have used Distress Ink spun sugar, milled lavender and seedless preserves. Stamped the bird and hat coloured with Distress Markers and cut out. I then added the words stickers to make Hats.

Interview with Shemi Dixon

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Just a quick post as I wanted to share with you what happened on Thursday of this week.

I was interviewed by the very talented Shemi Dixon who is based in the USA.

Shemi and I are on the same design team for Canvas Corp Brand and you all know how excited I was to actually become a crew member with so many talented artists.

Shemi wanted to do interviews with a lot of the artists not only in CCB but in the crafting community both here and abroad.

We chose our questions to be asked during the interview and I had so much fun.

Here is the link to the interview, I hope you get the time to watch, why not make yourself a coffee/tea and sit and enjoy lots of laughs and I wonder if you will be surprised by my answers.

On an exciting note too I am nearly at 500 subscribers on my You Tube channel too!
WOW Thank you!
