Merry Christmas To You ...

Hi Everybody,

It nearly that time of year again and I really don't know where the rest of the year has gone. I hope you are all ready for whatever it means to you and enjoy it whether busy or quiet.

A lot has happened to me over the last year and as you may already know I was recently made the UK International Ambassador for Spellbinders

One of my roles is to be the face of Spellbinders on Create and Craft TV and although nerve racking it was very enjoyable.

Since my last newsletter I have had several visits down in Peterborough promoting the new collections that have been launched.

The last shows was to introduce you to the new Grand Calibur in a lovely Teal color. The machine is very sturdy and one I am sure is now going to be one of your favorite "Go To" work horses

I will list the dates and times of shows on the Blog ...

Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls

My next trip to C&C is on the 19th and 20th December which will give me time to get home again and be ready for Christmas I will add the times of the shows to the blog

All my family come round to me for Christmas Dinner so I need to be ready for the day.

Before I go I will be putting up the tree so that will be one job done.

Another trip I made was over to the Ambassadors Retreat in Phoenix, Arizona and it was fabulous ... and very warm even in November.

It was a real honour to meet Stacey Caron who is the owner of Spellbinders and many of the designers that work with her. I learned so much in the few days I was there ... and I know I have a lot more to learn.

But if the next year is anything like the last one then it is going to be a roller coaster of a year.

The Friday Freebie is still going strong and I cannot believe that this is the 36 week of giving a card away.

So if you would like to win one of the cards on offer then you will need to leave me a comment and maybe become a follower too.

But don't forget to come back and check to see if you are the winner as you will only have 48 hours in which to claim the card.

The Spellbinders Video Tutorials are still available to purchase on the website and I will be adding new classes in the New Year

Each class has a summary of the content and each class is priced at $9.99 (about £5 GBP) but within the class you will be making at least two cards

Spellbinders Tuition

I hope you will continue to visit both the Blog and the Website on a regular basis and that way you won't miss out on any of the lovely offers that come up.

I really enjoy getting all of your comments ... either on the blog or on Facebook and if you email me I will always respond.

But check that you have sent me your correct email address or that I am not in your junk folder ... my email address is ...

Click the link to the blog below and take a peek ... and maybe join the group of followers, enter your name for the Give Aways or the Friday Freebie

Flowers Ribbons and Pearls

Cards are still for sale in my Etsy Shop but I must admit that I have not added any new ones for a while. Not because I am being lay but I have had a lot of commission cards to do from Etsy and that has also taken up my time

Updates ...

YouTube continues to grow and it is now at 4,476,478 views with an amazing 22,441 followers ... so guess who is a happy bunny then ???

If you visit YouTube please let me know what you thought of the video tutorial you have watched in the comments box below it

Facebook is also there for you to click the "Like" button and leave me more of your comments, stories or questions.

And finally ... can I ask that if you do add photos to the Gallery Pages that you identify yourself the same each time you do.

So if you are say Christina Griffiths from Blackpool UK that the next time you add photos you don't become Chris UK ... as that is very confusing.

I may have several Marys, Emilys or Annes and in order for me to add your photos to your page and not someone elses then I need to know exactly who you are.

And I cannot accept entries from Anonymous either ... so please add your name

Thank you in advance xx
