I'd like to thank ....

Wow and wow again. 

It's been really hard work keeping it a secret that I was one the new guest designers for PaperArtsy and probably even more nerve wracking planning, designing and writing up my three first pieces.

Hidcote Manor June 2013
I have been overwhelmed and very humbled by all the positive responses I have got from everyone who has looked and commented, so a big thank you to you all.

I really appreciate it.

Putting your work out there and getting feedback both positive and constructive is really important. It's how we grow, it's how we stretch ourselves, it's how we learn.

My day "job" is in a University and this week I have been meeting new students to tell them how the library can and will support their learning, how much learning is a creative interactive energising process and having the opportunity to learn is one of the most precious gifts we can have in life.  Wanting to learn should never leave us and that's why it has been great this week to share my enthusiasm for learning in both my day job and my crafting life.

If you haven't looked at my guest designer week these are the links:

I'm really looking forward to my next designer week and have already got some great ideas to share with you.
