Leandra on You Tube + giveaway week

Leandra and I have a big year ahead of us with 5 Artsycrafts events planned for 2010. So many of our mail order customers from the northern half of the UK asked if we would consider taking Artsycrafts on the road. After lots of discussion, we decided to give it a whirl and we will be presenting a "best of Artsycrafts" event on March 13th & 14th at Daresbury, Warrington. Our Gothic Arch project has been much talked about and with this in mind, we made the decision to present the Gothic Arch as the main project for our Warrington event. Leandra has produced a You Tube video, giving you a detailed insight into our little ditty, so if you are undecided about attending, check out her video. In the meantime, here are a couple of little peaks at my latest version of the arch.





Now to the giveaway.......When I went to CHA, I met up with my dear friend Beverly Seymour of B Line Designs fame and she very generously gave me some of her giveaways. She told me that she had become bored with demonstrating on just plain tags and therefore, came up with these cute little blank dress which she uses as a blank canvas for stamping on...how cute are these. They come packaged with an unmounted stamp and also a little print out for a cut out art doll. I'm trying to persuade Bev that she should make the blank dress thingie into a rubber stamp...it would be so versatile. I have three of these cute little kits to giveaway, simply leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning. We will pick three names out of the hat next weekend.

Absolutely amazing. Thanks for all the sneak peaks.

What fun those little dress forms are. I'd love to have one to play with. Agree with you, Linda, that a stamp of the dress would be so cool -- so many things to do with it -- the mind boggles.
Just watched you on the TSS video -- it was GREAT!!! I'm seeing quite a few comments on it in some of the groups I belong to! You're becoming more and more famous!!!!
See you soon -- Sally in France x
