We say goodbye to Helen Jolly from the Design Team
Helen is an amazing card maker and delightful friend ho helped us on the Design Team and I am so sad to see her go. However Helen's life has changed and she does not have time to create as she once did, and so she feels it is time to leave. We will all miss her terribly from our little Team but we know that she will be with us no matter what and we all enjoy her friendship in so many ways. Helen has said she will happily creat for us when she can so I look forward to receiving lovely card photos to share!
|Helen Jolly - good bye gorgeous girl and good luck!|
Christmas is coming and we are looking forward to the festivities and all it brings... our family is small this year and it will be probably hot and sunny here in Australia. I am actually thinking of great food on the BBQ instead of the usual fare but I have not broken this news to my children as yet!
I have bought the start of the gifts... but have more to do and I have bought the lanterns for the deck including the candles which are outdoor ones from Dusk..... It is our first Christmas here in this house and I will ensure I get the full lot of decorations down and really make it special.
Tattered Inspirations will be quiet for January - the shop will be open and parcels sent as usual but we will have a break and no newsletter will be available. This is simply so we can all regroup and recharge after what has been a huge year. The DT will be sent somne new items to play with and we will bring you a newsletter in February with all the pics and information.
Our Guest Designer for November
Our lovely guest designer for November is the gorgeous Anna Painter.
Anna has a wonderful style nad I have enjoyed seeing her work with the Tattered Inspirations Kits. We thank her for her awesome work and I look forward to seeing more of her layouts and cards in the future
