Still Thursday?

Just a quick note to let you all know we’re home safe and sound and we have a very wowly Basil cat with us.  He  turned his nose up at our strange airline smell and went straight off to check his territory and is now back with us, gracing us with a variety of  pathetic, recriminating and heartrending wowls at the rate of approximately one every ten seconds.  Thanks Bas, it’s good to be home.

Full report coming in the next couple of days when I have caught up on some sleep.


What day is it?

Well hello everyone, I’m almost back home – blogging from Amsterdam airport while we wait for our connecting flight back.  I’ve just spent nearly ten hours on a plane and it was yesterday when I left and now it’s tomorrow – weird!

The pictures in the previous post were from Tattered Angels booth and some gorgeous parisian 12×12 papers from Dove of the East.  The no-photography rule was put in place by CHA to protect copyright theft, but individual companies still had the right to allow you to take photos if you asked.

I helped teach a workshop with Tattered Angels on Tuesday – the students made a garden book (similar to the one in the previous entry).  The album comes as a gatefold album with the clear fence overlay already on.  The front is delicately embossed with a tree which you can pick out by rubbing an inkpad over it.  It’s just beautiful.

I learned a few things myself too – did you know you can heat Glimmer Glass and shape it?  I saw some delightful flowers made with the snowflakes from the winter Glimmer Glass pack and I’m dying to try it out for myself.

I spent far too much money of course, so once the orders start to arrive, you’d better help me out.  Most things are shipping fairly quickly, but some stuff won’t be shipping til March.

The pink misting mat that Tattered Angels have on their blog is HUGE – a real table top size!  However it is a little pricey – looks like it will have a UK retail price around £50-55.

Anyway, not long til our flight, so I better go.  Basil would never forgive me if we missed it!
