Happy 2019

Or…thoughts for the new year. 

Don’t you just love the new year, all shiny and clean? What ever happened in 2018 can jolly well stay there along with the remains of the turkey and crispy pine needles!

There’s something about the freshness and promise of January 1st that gets me so excited. I’ll be starting a new planner and a new planner style along with a new sketch book as I’ve actually filled up my old one at last.

Going into 2019 I look forward to lots more exciting things to come with Craft Stamper magazine and getting to know alot more of how things work behind the scenes. I’ll be continuing to work with WOW! Embossing Powders and some exciting new products they have coming up, taking a bit of a step back with Canvas Corp Brands by joining their Alumni program and carrying on my work with Paper Pen and Plan as a Creative team member.

I have some big craft market plans too as this was something I really enjoyed in 2018 and one or two new ideas for the Basement Studio shop too. 

So, I’d better stop talking and start doing before the novelty of fresh starts and all things new wears off!

A very happy new year to everyone and may 2019 turn out to be the best yet.

New Year New Beginnings 2018

I think I’ve been preparing for 2018 for ages and working so far ahead as we do in the publishing world, by the time Christmas comes around I’m so over it before it’s even started. I love the decorating and getting together with the family but I’m glad when it’s over to be truthful and I’m ready to start the new year all shiny and fresh.

This new year 2018 there’ll be alot to get excited about. I continue to have work published in Craft Stamper magazine which I’m very very happy about and I also continue to work with Canvas Corp brands who I love for their diversity of products from paints and canvas to fabrics and papers.  I’m also working with Paper Pen and Plan who are helping to feed my planner addiction and keep me focussed month by month with their monthly Sweet Treat Boxes.

This year however I’ve added a new team to be working with, WOW Embossing powders.  I’m thrilled to have been asked to join this amazing team of designers and I have to say I’m a little bit nervous about whether I’ll be able to keep up with the talent they have between them.

I’ve owned WOW powders for many years now and love them. They really are the best on the market. You’ll absolutely love the colours and finishes to all their powders and I hope in the coming months I’ll be able to do them justice.

I’ll be back on Friday with my In The Studio feature and show you what I’m working on right now.

All the best for 2018 to all of you and I hope it’s a creative one.

Happy New Year from the studio

I’m just getting back to normal, (what ever ‘normal’ is) after the break and I’m eager to get going again. I’ve not had time to do anything in my journal for the past few weeks and I’m way behind with my December daily but it’s still out on my table for now in the hope I’ll get it finished sometime within the next week or so. If not, I’ll just put it away for next year.

I think 2016 is promising to be a very exciting year and I’m looking forward to lots of new things ahead.

So to start things off for this year I’ve decided to offer everyone 20% off in the shop. There’s also a discount on the Christmas stamps from IndigoBlu so even more saving to be made there.  Just use the discount code BS20JAN16 at checkout.
