Port Sunlight

Well tomorrow it is the Port Sunlight show and both Jill and I are keeping everything crossed right now as we are hoping that the new stamp sheets will arrive tomorrow at the show! This will mean that anyone who attends the show will get to see the finished rubber before I do! Because of the show Jill won't be able to post my sheets to me until Monday at the earliest so someone could be playing with my new designs before me!! Anyway if the sheets do make it in time and any of you out there see them do let me know what you think. Meanwhile just incase the sheets don't turn up Jill and I have been working on a little surprise for you.................I won't tell you what it is - you'll just have to stop by The Stamp Man stand and see!


Well what a manic time I have been having recently! For the last few days I couldn't tell you what the weather has been doing as my eyes have been permanently glued to my work table and I've only just about managed to eat and sleep inbetween. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my editor who I think has saved my sanity! With a lot of focus and hours I had managed to get my main magazine project done - just! However I am supposed to be creating a few things for this particular issue with the cover mount stamp that I'd designed and to be honest I absolutely hated what I had done with it but I had run out of time to do anything about it. Katy has been an absolute star though and has given me today and the weekend to sort it out. You would think that working with my own design would be a walk in the park wouldn't you? But for some reason every time I work with a stamp that I have designed my mind just completely shuts down and I just can't create anything nice with it until I have just about exhausted every possibility! (What a great designer I am?!!) With 3 new stamp sheets about to come out aren't I going to have fun???

Ok back to that dratted cover mount stamp...........

What a good idea Dawn! I hadn't thought of that! I'll put it to the test when the new designs turn up.



Thanks Debbie - you are right I have been busy beavering away this afternoon and have now got something that I am satisfied with! As to whether they are 'nice' though time will tell!
