Crafting Heaven....

Well good evening everyone!!!!

Tonight I'm back to my usual posting time.  Today I have had SUCH a fun day working at Head Office.  This morning I had the fabulous pleasure of crafting with two lovely ladies, Emma Collins and Katy Godbeer, and have been working with photographer extraordinaire Louise Jolley for part of the afternoon. A day of crafting heaven???? I THINK SO!!!! 

Now there is another little bit of crafting heaven in my life at the moment... and that is the FABULOUS, STUNNING, BEAUTIFUL.... need I say more... GorjussTM  range launching at Docrafts stockists at the beginning of March....

I have friends who know me well enough to know just how excited I was when I knew this range was coming to Docrafts... in fact one lovely friends calls me the "GorjussTM" girl - this is nothing to do with my appearance I promise you (have you seen that mug shot on my facebook page eh?) but because I am rather in love with this character...

AND I have been so lucky enough to be working extensively with these lovely lovely products... more crafting heaven?????  I THINK SO!!!!

So let's get you up to speed with everything you need to know about these Gorjuss goodies coming to you soon...

Gorjuss by name, gorjuss by nature
