Now, I have a lot to thank my lovely friend Sara for! Not only is she a pretty fabulous friend, has two ready made (and willing!) babysitters and has a wicked sense of humour but she gave me a lot of encouragement to apply for a design team spot. I have wanted to join a design team for ages but don't seem to have the courage to ask but Sara gave me that little push. Today it was announced who was going to be in newly formed Creative Expressions DT and my name was one of those chosen! I did have to ask Freya if there were likely to have been two Gabrielle Prices who applied but the confirmation email was in my inbox (phew!). So, I am awaiting the details of what's involved but for now I am just giddy with excitement! So many of you have been unbelievably kind and supportive on Twitter and Facebook - thank you - means a lot especially from peers I really respect. The little Floral art part in the first picture was part of an experiment with Distress Stains - when I've got it right I'll tell all!
The other picture is my new Distress Ink storage solution! I covered an Ikea box (sadly no longer made - boo!) with Stampin Up paper and used Distress Stains to show what colour is in each drawer - how lush is Spiced Marmalade?! Anyway - am off to get all giddy again - thank you Sara and the Creative Expressions team! Gabrielle x
