Mamma's Got a Brand New Blog

Here it is - I hope it all works!  Please let me know if it doesn't. You will find lots of information such as my CV, a gallery of work - which already needs updating, details of d4daisy books and Workshop on the Web which includes a free workshop on making metal flowers. This is for those who aren't members of WoW (why aren't you members?) .

Then there is a page containing two free workshops - one on oiled paper and a download on using Shrinking Plastic. Next week I will expand this into making the Shrinking Plastic books.

Giveaway

I am giving out sheets of Shrinking Plastic so leave acomment if you would like to be included.

Let me know what you think of the new look - I have to make a new header but it is lunchtime and I am hungry!

I love the clean new look. It is so easy to find everything, and the colours of the books and other photos zing. I look forward to the new header - after lunch?

New page is working well. Many thanks for all the hard work you have put into the new articles on oiled paper and shrink plastic. Wishing you and your family a happy new year and I hope you have more luck in all getting together for a new year celebration.

New blog is looking good - food is more important than a new header I'm sure

I really like your new blog--and it works right from the start. It looks so fresh and clean that it will brighten the English weather scene. Good job.

Diane said...

I am finding this new format more user friendlier than the previous format for some reason. I have tried using Facebook but I think I need one of the grandchildren to show me how!! Just love the idea of the free workshops even though I enjoy WOW workshops. In short the new Blog format is great. Congratulations.
May the New Year be all you and Clive wish for. Diane

Happy New Year!

PJ said...

I am new to everything including a member of WoW. I am very excited to have found all of you. Although I don't know what your blog looked like before this one is very nice. They are never updated as much as we would like.

I would like to try the shrinking plastic and I am headed to the workshop on metal flowers as well as the oiled paper.

So much to play with!

Jenny Bear said...

Love the Shrinking plastic.Off to check the oiled paper.

Jacqui Chimes said...

Sadly not got the new book yet but love the ones I have! I love making oiled paper - it is a beautiful surface to sew and have just been making some tags with shrink plastic embellishments

Kira said...

I like the nice clear headers so that everything's easy to find.

Shrinking plastic is fun but I've only done really basic stuff with it - making pendants and keyrings with the kids. It's great to see what adults can make :)

Denise said...

Great ideas Maggie, perfect for a couple of projects I have been working on, thanks.

Dale Kathryn said...

What did you have for lunch? Love the new look!

Ulla in DK (ullaminulla.dk) said...
