Time for some sorting out?...

Happy Wednesday,

Firstly I am showing my card today for my last stint ( for this year and on a Wednesday) for the CE design team.  From Sunday I will be moving my DT inspiration day to Sunday so here is the last wednesday card!

Also I have shows On Hochanda Today and tomorrow!  I have only just realised, as typing this, that I did the first ever One Day Special on Hochanda earlier this year and today I will launch the last ODS of the year!  Tonight at 8pm I will be on Hochanda ( freeview 39 sky 673) with a range of products and ideas to get our craft caves all sorted for the new year.  I thought it would be a good idea to show some of the ideas I use to keep things ( to start each day at least) neat and tidy especially as I have heard quite  a lot of my blog family received new crafty stash for Christmas!

Firstly I have finally found a replacement for the die storage books that I developed with CE at the beginning of this year.  I have been asked so many times where I got my books from well the original books sold out so I have found a replacement which I will be demoing tonight and thought tomorrow.

There are lots of new ideas like this stamps and matching die storage as well as an idea for keeping your rubber amount stamps tidy was well as the fabulous stamps to die for by Sue Wilson.

There are loads of ideas through tomorrow at 9am, 12pm, 4pm and last chance at 7pm where I will get to wish everyone a Happy New Year live which Is a real pleasure for me!

Hopefully some of you will be able to tune in, it would be great if you could email in at
