I have just been out with the masses to see the Olympic Torch.  I was suprised by how many people came out.  The children were really excited and the was a real community feel about the whole thing.  It must be said I'm getting really excited having seen the rehersal for the opening ceremony last night and the flame today and next month I start working at the Paralympics. x

Shh! KEEP THE SECRET............

Finally I can let the cat out of the bag. I went to see the rehersal of the Opening Ceremony on Wednesday night.  It was FANTASTIC! It has been a real stresser not being able to shout out how brilliant the production was.  The atmosphere was electric! x

These are just a few of the pictures taken.

Moreheads POTW – a huge announcement

O my blooming Giddy Aunt!
I cannot wait to let you all know that something big is happening with our Morehead Pick of the Week, which is due to launch on Friday 27th at noon as usual…… well, everyone here at Crafter’s Companion and Create and Craft know it’s going to be so unbelievably popular, that we are doing two bonus preview shows on the Thursday Night! I know can you believe it! – this has never happened before to my knowledge so It’s absolutely amazing. It means I need to get my bottom in gear and head off to the studios earlier than usual, but who cares when it’s for something as absolutely awesome as this!
So tune in to Create and Craft at 6pm and 8pm on Thursday and you will see moi with the POTW, so you can get yours before the POTW rush at 12 noon on the Friday.

Be warned, this is a massive deal having Morehead on a CD for the first ever time, it has taken me almost three years to secure this range digitally for you, then we have exclusive access to the stamps, the decoupage kits and some fabulous Hunkdory stuff too!
It will fly out and never in a million years last the week……just giving you the heads up!
To celebrate, I am going to run a competition here on my blog, so all you have to do is leave me a comment on this post, letting me know what you think of the Morehead range, and then advertise this post on your blog if you have one (i’ll be checking) or facebook/twitter if you don’t – on Thursday at 12 noon before I head off to the studio’s I’ll draw a winner, you will win the double disc CD and also both the Hunkydory kits that we launch on the Thursday Night. I am even going to throw in a tub of the best glue in the world (Collall all purpose for those who don’t know what I am talking about).
I finished colouring this little guy tonight who I LOVE – actually I love all the stamps!
Jennie won with her colour suggestion for his trousers and shirt and I am actually really thrilled with the results, hope you like him too. I have started another one this evening so I will be sharing that with you tomorrow when the light is better and I can photograph her.

So just so you don’t miss out show time are:
Thursday 26th – 6pm and 8pm (Pick of the week preview!)
Friday 27th – 12 noon POTW launch

There will be shows on the Tuesday Thursday and Friday – if there is any left – there won’t be! so don’t hang around or we’ll have another Mulberry Wood situation where there are lots of disappointed peeps out there :)

MY BABY...............

This is Miss Mini my baby - she's lovely!  Sadly she's is going to be traded for a sensible car!  But I'm going to have fun with her while I can. x


Finally I can post on my blog!  I've just followed the Spectrum Noir Blog Hop and the DT are amazing.  The colour yellow is not one I would think to use as a main colour but every card is so special.  I love Linda' s decoupaged image.  I would never think of stamping for  decoupage.  Suzanne came up with colouring pearls with your pens if you can't find colours to match.


LONDON'S CALLING...............

This is sheer genious.  Just type in your postcode!

I've been MIA for a while - sorry peeps I've not been well but the girl is back.

It's Christmads crafting for me over the wekend. so I hope to have some goodies to share with you.  x
