WOYWW 178 – Hobby Art Stamps

Oké, het is weer een hele tijd geleden dat ik mijn laatste blog post heb gemaakt, maar dat betekent niet dat er ondertussen niets is gebeurd. Na een mooie vakantie met manlief in Zwitserland ben ik vervolgens alleen op stap gegaan naar mijn goede vriendin Charry in Engeland. Maar voordat ik hierover meer vertel laat ik eerst zien hoe mijn bureaublad er vandaag uitziet.

Oké, it’s a long time ago since I‘ve made my last blog post, but that doesn’t mean nothing has happened. After a good vacation with my hubby in Switzerland, I’ve made a super crafty trip to my friend Charry in the UK. But before I tell you more about that, here is how my work desk looks today.

De kleuren op mijn bureaublad doen vermoeden dat hier iets gemaakt wordt voor Kerstmis. En wanneer je wat beter naar de stempels kijkt, die er liggen, zien je dat het de laatste Kerststempels van Hobby Art zijn. En dat is nu net waarover ik wat meer wilde vertellen...

The colours you’ll see on my desk, make it look a little bit like Christmas, don’t they? When you look a little bit closer at the stamps, you’ll discover one of the latest Christmas stamps from Hobby Art. That is just what I want to tell you…

Tijdens mijn vakantie in Engeland ben ik met mijn vriendin naar de grote scrap- en stempel show in Alexander Palace, Londen afgelopen september.

Hier ontmoette ik het hele team van Hobby Art Stamps en heb hun toen mijn kaarten laten zien die ik had gemaakt met hun stempelset Fawn & Flora. Ze vonden deze kaarten schitterend en waren er zo enthousiast over dat ik ben gevraagd of ik deel wilde uitmaken van hun design team. Ik voelde mij zeer vereerd en heb natuurlijk gezegd dat ik dat graag wilde. Dus op mijn bureaublad van vandaag zien jullie mijn eerste werk als designer van Hobby Art Stamps. Helaas kan ik natuurlijk niet te veel laten zien, maar wil je de andere kaarten zien die ik heb gemaakt voor hun, volg dan deze Hobby Art Stamps link.

When I was at the big stamp and scrap show in Alexander Palace, London last September I met the whole ‘crew’ of Hobby Art. I’ve showed them some of my cards which I’ve made with their stamps Fawn & Flora  and they liked them very much. I will say….they like them so much they asked me if I would like to be a member of their design team. I was honoured they asked me, so I took the challenge. And yes… on my desk you’ll see my first steps as a designer. Sorry I can’t show you more of this Christmas project, but if you want to see some other cards I’ve made for Hobby Art, follow this Hobby Art Stamps link.

Natuurlijk hoef ik niet uit te leggen dat dit bezoek aan Ally Pally een enorm succes was voor mij, net als de rest van deze korte vakantie bij mijn vriendin. 

I don’t have to tell you that this visit at Ally Pally was an enormous success for me, just like the rest of my short stay with my friends. 

Op deze laatste foto ben ik zelf te zien in Alexander Palace, genietend van de vroege ochtendzon die door het prachtige grote glas-in-lood raam scheen. Heb je de smaak te pakken en wil je nog meer WOYWW creaties zien, volg dan deze WOYWW link naar Julia's blog.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday,

And on this last one you’ll see me in Alexander Palace enjoying the early morning sun inside.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday,

Yes our name is nice, when I was younger there was only me and the actress Francesca Annis it seemed in the UK. Now it is more common. Great desk, Ally Pally also great, I was there 2 weeks ago for the Stitch and Sew Ex. Francesca #74

Congratulations Franka on your design team membership, will look forward to seeing the cards you make. Love the photo of Alexandra Palace, it's beautiful and my eye is drawn to the big organ on the far wall - wonder if it ever gets played now.
Thanks for calling by earlier and I think my second sock will be a lot different to the first, probably longer, wider and tighter!

I'm sat reading my WOYWW blogs on my sick bed this week but have my mask on so you don't catch anything. I'm enjoying reading what everyone is up to this week [it's better than reading magazines :-) ]. I'm leaving a copied comment so you know I've called by because my hands are too weak and shaky to keep typing out my comments this week.
Big hugs,

Had intended to go to Ally Pally with my DIL this year but she had her little baby son three weeks early so we have to make it next year instead! The stamps look very nice and I'm sure your cards will be great.
