Shoes Glorious Shoes !!

Hi Folks it's shoes and footwear of all sorts at Tuesday Taggers this week, I must admit that I have cheated and used a project I made a while ago, but there are lots of people who visit Tuesday Taggers who haven't seen what I did to my scruffy white shoes.........

So here they are again.

And yes I do still wear them on occasions. You can see more pictures of the work in progress here.

The main reasons for using a recycled project are that my life is very busy at the moment with starting up my Stampin'Up! Business and two very lively additions to the house hold, a three month old Jack Russel Terrier Pup who we have had for about a month now and who is just finding his feet and a Hunting Basset (A longer legged version of the Show Basset) who arrived a week ago, he is nine months old and has come to us straight from Hunting Kennels, he had never been in a car let alone seen the inside of a house or worn a collar or lead....lol....but he is very adorable, these troublesome twosome are known as Yuki and Bertie respectively (or Big T and Little T) and are leading us, our old dog, Patch and the four cats a merry dance at the moment.

One of the biggest problems is that Bertie has bonded with me in a really big way and has become an almost inseparable shadow, except when he and Yuki are getting into mischief together, he gets really anxious when he can't see me and isn't settling well at night, it takes me back to when my children were young......all those sleepless nights, I am sure he will settle in eventually, as he seems fast to learn what is expected of him, but for the moment I seem to be spending more time dozing on the sofa, than in my bed at night, just so the rest of the household can get some sleep, still it is early days.
I have had two Stampin' Up! workshops this week, both of which were great fun and went well, thanks to everyone who came and supported me, especially Kate and Emma, I really do appreciate your support. We all had a really good time, the demos and make and takes went well, and the time just flew, the orders have arrived from the warehouse and are on their way out to my first customers, now I just need to get my next lot of workshops organised.......
dogs willing....lol
Bye for now

Hi Everyone,

I've been missing from blogland for a couple of weeks because there have been some really exciting things going on in "real life" that have kept me really busy.

I have finally taken the plunge and joined up as a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator, I attended my first Craft Fair as a Demonstrator at the end of May and spent this weekend at our local gardeners fair, where I sold cards......which I had only made as demonstration models, got a commission for a Graduation Card, got invited to a local craft group next week....with my Stampin' Up! stuff and organised my first workshop!!!!! phew.....what a rollercoaster ride.

My card for this week's Tuesday Taggers Challenge was made well in advance, but was one of the samples I had on my stall at the weekend......and I hadn't photographed it.....lol......and it was one of the ones that got snapped up by a customer........so I had to set to this morning and remake it. I have used two sets of Stampin' Up! rubber stamps:- Oval All and Vintage Vogue, along with the oval punches and scallop border punch.

I really like black and white and although it is quite a simple card it has turned out quite well.

Bye for now Bee xx
