It's been ALL GO in the cubbyhole...

Hi's been a busy old week in the cubbyhole trying to catch up with the crafty stuff after my trip to Stitches...the tiny houses are standing in line waiting to be decorated...
there's been some more playtime with Distress Oxides...
I've been making cards with the Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz stamps that will be shipping to a craft store near you in March...
and getting stuck in to my DT project for next Monday's challenge at Simon Says Stamp...
There have been one or two "happy mail has arrived" moments...I can't tell you how excited I was when this month's edition of Craft Stamper popped through my letterbox and huge congratulatons to my lovely buddy Brenda for being this month's Cover Girl with her gorgeous Spring Assemblage project...
flick over a few pages and there is little old me with my first commission...woohoo...huge thanks to Trish Latimer for inviting me to join the Craft Stamper Team and here's a little sneaky peek of my Spring Canvas using fabulous PaperArtsy products...gorgeous Fresco Finish Chalk Paints...amazing stamps and stencils from the lovely and very talented Lin Brown.
if you don't already subscribe to this fabulous "filled with technique laden projects" can do so at single copies at or digital copies at But there was one more special delivery and knowing who it was from...I was super excited about unwrapping it...
and snuggled inside...the most gorgeous Pin Cushion Box made with Tim's Eclectic Elements Correspondence Fabrics from my very special friend beautiful...absolutely adorable and the perfect accompaniment for my Eclectic Elements Threads Box...
 Thank you so much Anne...I will treasure it forever...
But as much as I would love to stay home today and continue the crafty playtime...I have missed out on two Friday adventures with my favourite non-crafty it's going to be a...lunch/pamper session/coffee and catching up with lots of gossip kind of day. Have a great weekend everyone...wrap up warm and stay cosy and I'll see you all on Monday over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.

  5. Hi, Kath,
    I've just taken out a subscription to Craft Stamper so I'm hoping that I get the issue with your page in it...fingers crossed.
    I love what you're doing with the oxide inks. I've told myself that, even though there are only 12, I'm not allowed to get them until I complete my collection of 'normal' distress inks. I arrived a bit late to the distress party so I think I've only got around 30 in my collection as yet...although I have to say that the new oxide ones may be better for my dip into the world of mixed media...can you hear my inner demon telling me that I really do need the oxide inks lol.
