I Like Spending Time With The Schmuz

seems that today’s post is all about her

Recently Kim Archer had a design team call
I was thrilled to be picked in the Top 15 to go through to the second round
The second round contained three challenges
2 of which were to take 2 of Kim’s classes and put your own ‘twist’ to each
What I love about Kim’s work is that it always looks AMAZING
I haven’t taken an online class before, always had a daunting feeling about doing so.
Her classes are easy to follow, have great step by step photos, amazing gallery and you know that the end result will be a wonderful creation
The first class was a layout, here is my interpretation

I also used a step by step class to make this mini and a pocket to store it in :)

My third creation, for the challenges, will be part of the upcoming Mother’s Day Workshop that Kim will be running soon.
The new members of Kim’s Design Team were announced yesterday and, although I wasn’t one of them, I am thrilled by the creative people she chose. Do yourself a favour, head over to Kim’s blog or site and see what classes she has to offer or just check out her design team, AMAZING :)

Today I organised my ever growing bakers twine
I LOVE IT, seriously!!
Quite some time ago I bought my first lot and they arrived on some cotton reels
But since then each one has arrived just coiled or sometimes wrapped on a piece of card
I find this to be annoying because it usually doesn’t unravel properly and ends up knotty
So today I put an end to my knotty lumps of twine
I wound them onto some wooden clothes pegs
Much easier to find the end
Much easier to unravel
and I think it looks much MUCH better :)

So there this post wasn’t totally about Lucy
But will leave you with another photo of her blue tongue
She had a left over lollipop from the party bag she got 2 weekends ago :)
