These are a few of my favourite things :0)

I absolutely love my heat gun, you can make lots of thinks look really beautiful, for instance, envelopes for cards, 2 minutes and they look too good to throw away!

My Light Box is also VERY useful, for a different kind of embossing. This can be used for the more subtle/ hidden types and can look really good. along side some embossing tools and stencils, almost anything can be created!!

Ink Pads. These are the things I use the most often, the Ink lasts such a long time, and refills are available to buy (and are cheaper in the long run than buying another ink pad when one has ran out)
The colours are just so vibrant and beautiful, they don't fade either!!
Pigment ink pads can be used with clear embossing powder and a heat gun, so you will always have the color you want and don't have to keep buying coloured embossing powders!

Wooden Stamps are a must have for me, with out these I wouldn't have a love for stamping,
Because as good as clear stamps are (Even if they are much cheaper then wooden ones) there's just something about Wooden Stamps that makes them seem so individual and unique.

My Favourite Websites are 

This is just a small selection of my favourite things.

Post Views

So unfortunately, because I had 2 Google Accounts, I thought I would transfer everything across to just one, to make life a bit easier.

However when I done this, both google accounts deleted! :-O

I had put so much work into the blog etc that when this happened, I immediately felt Ill. I felt like screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
At the top of my lungs.

To make matters worse, I had quite a few page views on my blog.

 I am now starting from scratch with page views etc and would love for you to comment on posts old or new. Have a look and tell me what you think. Thank You

Just a Little Poem

For every word that needs an ear
For every pain and every tear
For every day of every year
I'll be your friend, I'll be here

The Celebration of Darren Connor's life.

Today Darren was laid to rest and everyone celebrated his life in a fantastic get together held at The University of Cumbria's Brampton Road Campus. The Place looked INCREDIBLE! Lecturers and a couple of Students stayed up until around 2.30am decorating the refectory and I think they done a fantastic job.

This was just a small selection of Darren's belongings.

The Tribute Wall that has been created. It will changed into a more permanent state by the time the next term begins.

Refreshments and a stage welcome for anyone to use.

A very large image of Darren made of lots of A4 pieces of paper and a vast amount of film posters as a tribute to the Film Lecturer.

Extra Extra large film posters were hung at the end of the refectory, they looked really good and are going to stay there for a short while.

Movie Confetti was sprinkled on all of the tables today as well, looked really cool and finished everything off. Darren Would've loved it.

A Permanent version of this is going to be made and put outside the Uni. Fantastic idea I think :)

Film Reel

Darren always loved the Muppets. Here's Gonzo :)

Haha Here's Ed and the Storm Trooper. Ed's face says it all :)

Well, That's it Darren. I hope you liked your send off today, I thought there was nothing else that could've been done to make it better than it was. It was nice to see how many peoples lives you've touched, there were TONS of people there.

Well done for all you achieved in a life cut short, it was a pleasure to be taught by you, so much so I looked at you as a friend. I'm sat watching Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The one film that reminds me of AS Film Studies and your Brilliantly enthusiastic personality which lit up any room when you walked in. you always made me laugh and made me realise my love for films.

Thank you for everything friend

Miss you
