Save St Bees School #savestbeesschool





 

Well, as some of you may know form previous blog posts, I work at "St Bees School" and last Friday 13th March we were dropped the biggest unexpected bombshell that the school is to close 4th July 2015. There has been a fall in pupil numbers This means they cannot sustainable run the school anymore.

This is completely devastating and heartbreaking for us all and I feel as though I have been grieving for the last week. We have received an overwhelming response from the community local, national and internationally.

The pupils have made this video stating what the school means to them, please watch and share:

We have received support from famous old boys Stuart Lancaster and Rowan Atkinson, and there is a "Rescue St Bees School Group" set up to try and come up with a viable business plan to save the school, they need to raise 2million to sustain the school for 2 years and the current funds raised stands at £250 K in just over a week.

This is very overwhelming, when I have to continue to work with the children on a daily basis, faced with the uncertainty of whether I will be facing the dole queue this summer.

Temporary Break from Crafting

Currently having some time out. Lost my mojo, light on orders and truth be told swimming is taking over my life. I am participating in the "Swimathon" for Marie Curie in April, so in full training mode.

Still check in with you all for inspiration from time to time. I'm loosing followers left, right and centre lol, so if anyone is reading this, then thank you.

Birthday Bunting


Good Afternoon,

Hope everyone is well, I have another card to share with you, been practising with my "inktense Pencils". Got this gorgeous "Tilda" in the "Bunny Zoe's" sale and the papers too.

 

I have decoupaged parts of "Tilda" to add some depth to the card, cut her out with my nesties. The bunting is a "La La Land" die.

 

The sentiment stamp is a digi from "Pink Petticoat Stamps" and reads "find joy in everything".
Thanks for looking.

New Year - New Creative Challenges

 

Happy New Year Everybody,
Hope 2015 brings you all good health and happiness. For me it's also a chance to expand my creativity and step away from just cards. So today I want to share this door hanger with you.

I bought it plain wood for 99p at my local craft shop. I have decorated it with papers from the "Graphic 45 - Raining Cats and Dogs" papers.

 

I adore the vintage images, fonts and prints. I have embellished the door hanger with paper roses and beads from "The Ribbon Girl". I have distressed the edges of all papers and card used.

 

I have also decorated the reverse of the hanger.

I've enjoyed making this and look forward to doing many more in the future.

Thanks for looking, short and sweet.
