The Fabulous Barbara Gray

What a treat - and what a coup for The Papeterie!!
The incredibly talented crafter and all-round nice lady Barbara Gray spent the day demonstrating to a full-house at The Papeterie yesterday.
I decided to meet my mum there mid afternoon, my theory was that it would be a bit quieter by then - not a chance!! The enormous carpark was full to bursting - and it wasn't until I left later on that I realised that the paper mill itself was closed and the half of the carpark that was usually taken up with mill staff was actually full of visitors to see Barbara. And they'd come from all over Scotland too.


I'm sure I don't need to tell you how fantastic Barbara is, she makes everything look so effortless - and she loves Diamond White too. :)
(thanks to Kath Stewart for the pics)
If you were there, can you pop over to The Papeterie blog and let Charlotte know what you thought of the day


I'm back tomorrow with a sneaky peek of my altered art project for the Christmas Altered Art evening this Thursday - there are still a few places left if you want to join us, just call the shop on 01224 802337.
And don't forget to enter my Letraset giveaway - and lookout for something new coming on Wednesday - something that a lot of people have asked me for, and I've finally got round to doing :)
Thanks for visiting, 
I appreciate any comments
