    Hey folks,

    I’d love to stay and chat more today but I’ve been off the grid for over a week fighting off the flu and I’m still under the weather so please excuse this flying visit while I try and get myself back up to full fitness. I sure hope all of YOU are well and enjoying the lovely spring weather though?

    Here’s my latest brand new collection for you.

  2. Winner all the way…

    April 5, 2014 by Boo


    Layout by me using my OSB 6 Kit

    OMG……. I WON…..

    Ok, so I didn’t actually run in the race, I didn’t actually get on a horse and get all muddy and run and jump the crazy Aintree Grand National. BUT…. MY HORSE WON…. wohoooooo

    Wanna know what I won?? Of course you do lol. Well I didn’t win cash. Nope, I didn’t do what thousands and thousands of British folk do on this day and blow a packet in the betting shop on a horse but… I did win a prize for picking the winning horse, a lovely bar of chocolate which I will enjoy later on when everyone else has gone to bed. Hehehe.

    Every year Jay, Elly, sometimes, Jess and I gather around the tv to watch the famous Grand National Horse Race. We cut up all the horse names into little strips, place them in a hat and pick out an equal number each. The one holding the winning horse slip gets the chocolate. In recent years Jess and Jay have usually won but amazingly this year, I won and I’m one happy little winner. For a few moments its total bedlam in our house as the horses near the winning line. I’m sure you could hear us from there couldn’t you?

    I suppose the race is especially important in our house as Red Rum, 3 times Winner of the Grand National was trained in my home town of Southport and we often saw him running on the beach. My Grandad, who won every time with Red Rum, loved him so much he actually commissioned a painting of him. Do you have some special event in your home town that brings you all together? I’d love to hear about it.

    Here’s a layout withRed Rum taking centre stage. In the background you can just make out the sea. He’s training on Southport Beach. Sadly Rummy is no longer with us. He died on October 18th 1995 at the age of 30 and is buried at the finishing line with his head facing the winning post. But he will always live in our hearts.

    Watch him here


    Layout by me using my brand new collection Tulips From Amsterdam.

    Well, with all the Grand National excitement I almost forgot all the fantastic goings on over at the Studio, lol.


    Our Cafe In Paris Coordinated Collection is going through the roof folks. Seems you all love a little ohhh lala.

    April 2, 2014 by Boo


    People who know me know where to find me if I’m not home and glued to the PC. I’ll be the one relaxing at some roadside Cafe sipping Latte and watching the world go by. It’s by far my favourite way to relax. Once, a long time ago, I was lucky enough to do just that in Paris on Valentines weekend no less. Elly’s Dad and I had the chance to enjoy a weekend in the city of Love. It was a great way to spend our Wedding Anniversary and we both fell in love with Paris. I would love to go back some time with Jay and really take in all that romance and art.

    Of course, when I discovered our Studio Coordinates theme would be Cafe In Paris I could hardly contain my excitement. I hope you will love not just my contribution but the stunning art of all our Studio Designers. This really had been a labour of love for us all. Without further ado, let me introduce my ‘Cafe In Paris’

    Available HERE at just $1 per pack

  4. How Thoughtful are You?

    March 29, 2014 by Boo

    Hey Folks,

    My brother sure gets around. Thanks to his job he gets to visit places we can only dream of and sit in chairs we will only ever get to see on tv like the Game of Thrones Throne of Swords or, currently, the Voice Chairs of the Judges…… Lucky boy…..

    the-voice-new-judges-kylie-minogue-ricky-wilson-in-chairsThanks to this current job he gets to rub shoulders with some pretty impressive people like Tom Jones and Wil.I.Am but I gotta say, nothing has impressed me more then hearing my very excited Mum this morning tell me that he actually managed to get Ms Kylie Minogue to call her and wish her a Happy Mothers Day. WOW Simon, that was not just cool but amazingly thoughtful of both you and Ms Minogue. Way to go bro. Kinda puts my little gift in the shade lol but I know my Mom appreciates even just a call from us. It’s all about the thoughtful meaning behind the gift that matters.

    Thats what todays brand new Collection is all about too. I wanted to create something I felt could be used to show case all those amazingly thoughtful things you and your loved ones do for each other and it’s especially lovely that it happens to fall in line with this weekend, it being Mothers Day for our UK Mums.

    So, in honour of my dear Mum and for all our Moms here is Thoughtful

    You can find the full collection with a staggering 40% off right HERE

  8. DOTD, New Collection and St Paddy’s Day Sale

    March 15, 2014 by Boo


    Hey Friends,

    How goes it with you all this fine weekend? Better then me I hope. After all, if you’re going to try burning the candle at both ends you must expect there to be some unpleasant consequences right? Yep lately I’ve been on a creative binge, which, to be fair to me, isn’t something I intentionally do, it just happens lol, but, it does come at a price. All those super late nights and silly o’clock early mornings at the computer have left me feeling less then well this past week and I finally hit BURN OUT a couple of days ago.


    Now don’t worry folks. I’m ok, just not feeling as well as I like to and it’s meant a couple of early (for me) to bed nights and a couple of (for me) lie-in’s in the morning which is why todays post may be a little late.

    My advice to anyone contemplating burning the candle at both ends…… DON’T hahaha, instead take some time out to relax and enjoy life. You’ll come back feeling energised and ready for work and more then that, you’ll have something to actually talk about or, in our case, scrap about lol.

    Go on, admit it…. how many of you have spent way longer then you meant to on something then paid the price in some way? Leave your answers in the comments below

    Today at the Studio for one day only

    Check it out HERE


    New Collection – Up to 70% OFF

    Perfect for all our Irish/St Paddys fans. With Irelands colors of Green and Orange and that fab touch of purple this collection is ideal for every Spring Festival you can think of.

  10. DOTD, New Collections and Birthday Celebrations

    March 8, 2014 by Boo

    mike top

    Hey all, How goes it with you?

    Today is my youngest son, Mike’s, birthday and since I can’t be with hime today I’m dedicating todays post to him.

    As a young boy Mikey was such a mischievous little guy but he looked so angelic with his almost white hair and big brown eyes that he usually got away with most things, much to his older brothers annoyance. His favourite hero back then was He Man and it was not unusual to see Mike running around the garden at full speed with his plastic sabre held high. He would stop suddenly, look to the sky and shout ‘I have the POWERrrrrrrrrr’ then off he’d go again, running like the wind.How I wish we’d had such things as the smart phone then. I’d have been clicking away on the camera non stop.

    As it turned out, he grew up to be a real life Hero, as did his big brother when they both served in the Army. As for me, I count my blessings every minute of every day that somehow I got lucky enough to be their Mum.

    Template by Anna Aspenes

    Mike Birthday

    Journaling reads – ‘ You were always such a bundle of cheek and mischief. From the moment you were born with that shock of white hair and those big eyes you could get away with everything. I couldn’t turn my back for a moment for fear of you scaling some wall or dodging cars. You went through some style..erm.. ‘choices’ as you grew too. Check out that hair cut for one and your moustache sure left a lot to be desired. You sure have grown though. Just look at you now. There is no doubt you evolved into someone very special but I think you became your best self when you became a Dad. Happy Birthday Mike. The day you were born was one of the best days of my life and you’ve continued to bring sunshine every day since. Love you so much Son xxx ‘

    Happy Birthday sunshine. We wish you everything you wish for yourself and much more.
