New stuff...

Just got some scrapping goodies in the post today from an etsy shop called Every Jot and Tittle Have a look, there is some great things in the shop.
This week has been quite crazy (im sure some of you are saying which weeks are not crazy) Before we went to Cambodia I was offered a job at my daughters school teaching art two days a week. This is such a dream job for me as I am passionate about teaching and anything to do with art.
I went in on wednesday to see some of my classes and it was like slipping into a favourite pair of shoes. It fits and I know that I am going to love it.
I am also keeping up with my fortnightly crops so for those who live near they are staring again next week on thursday March 7th at 7:30 at Yateley Manor School in the drama studio. If you know anyone who would like to come just email me on There is always space for more! I am also looking into a all day saturday crop, so when I get the date finalised I will post up here with the details.
I really miss the Odiham crop and it would be lovely to see what people are doing so if you have done any lovely pages or mini books post a link on here.

I found the trip to Cambodia so visually inspiring. So much colour and pattern every where you looked. The light is so good, all the colours vibrate. It was a mixture of old and modern influences.

Chinese New Year decorations and dragon masks

Houses often painted in these vivid blue and red

I will post more tomorrow but these give you a little taste of what I saw!
