MY WOC DESIGNER POSITION HAS COME TO AN END BUT FERNLI DESIGNS IS ON THE HORIZON WHOO HOO

Hi Guys,

Well my time designing with Wild Orchid Crafts has sadly come to an end, as it was only ever a 6mth contract but i am assured that i am welcomed back as a guest designer when they need me, that's lovely to know as i loved designing for them and they are such a great company & secure, in other words you aren't messed about, they do what they say they are going to do and they never let you down, which is great, and they were also very laidback which is a Godsend in this day & age, life sometimes gets in the way..............So, what is a girl to do? LOL Have a rest for a couple of months but then I recieved a lovely message from Fernli Designs, i have been asked to be a guest designer for the lovely Lou @ Fernli Designs HERE in the month of September and i simply cannot wait to play!! I have shopped with Fernli Designs just this past year but i have never been disappointed with what i have recieved, infact when my first order arrived i was that blown away with the quality and attention to detail, even in the packing that i left them a review on their shop page, and i don't leave that kind of review lightly. I am very picky and have very high standards, so they really bowled me over as Wild Orchid Crafts always did!  So, until then, please pop in now and again my darling friends & see what i'm upto, because of course, i will still be pottering around in my crafty space and putting out teaching videos and sharing with you all, so hugs and have a lovely summer!!!

WOC 'FAIRY GARDEN BOX' FULL START -FINISH (NO EDITING) TUTORIAL

Hey hey guys!! what you upto? have an hour to spare? want to watch a designer at work? This video was not really intended as such.  I was designing my weekly project for WOC and was going to do a show and tell as the last few videos have all been full tutorials! which is unusual, as most of the designers do more videos with 'show and tell' aspects to them and i wanted to do a couple like that because people havent always got time to watch a full tutorial. I thought i would give people a chance to do either one they chose to. So here is the full tutorial, 'warts an all' that i decided to switch the camera on whilst i worked, which is why it wasn't intended for the public!! ha! hope it inspires you to have a go!!
