Workshop news, brilliant gift ideas (and a tiny bit of shameless own-trumpet-blowing)...
Dear everyone... three quick things.
First, there's a beginner's polymer workshop coming up in the next fortnight which is a very very late addition to my calendar (it's actually a replacement for the October one, which was stymied by me completely losing my voice!).
It's on Friday 15th December at Hobbycraft Crawley, 10.30-1.30. Because I've only just added it there are some spaces left. And it's the last one at 2017 prices so if you can make it, do! It'd make a lovely pre-Christmas treat.
Second, I've collected hundreds of names for my two Woking workshops next year despite the fact there are only going to be 14 places available (7 on each).They're at Hobbycraft Woking and the dates are Tuesday 17 April - 11am-2pm, and Sunday 16 September - 11am -2pm..
I've only just added these to my website and there are two places gone already, so don't hang about if you want to come and make some amazing millefiori.

Third, if you know anyone who'd like a funny, friendly, crafty "experience" rather than yet another "thing", I've added a Polymer Workshop Gift voucher option to my website (with many thanks to Caireen who suggested it!).
You can choose to send your recipient a free email gift certificate with your own message, or I can post them a lovely DoodlePippin gift card.
Once they've got their code they can choose whatever date suits them - or even use it to buy something, if they'd prefer that!

Lastly, I know it's a bit late, but I was really chuffed to be a featured maker in Surrey Life magazine in November.
Pro-photographer Phillip Traill and his wife Angela spent a morning completely re-arranging my studio in order to take pictures of me at work, surrounded by polymer canes - and being given a Paddington 'hard stare' by my dog, Woody (he's the 'doodle' in DoodlePippin).
Philiip and Angela were lovely, and made the whole thing a lot of fun, (as well as somehow turning a sow's ear into a silk purse). Check out more of Philip's beautiful, characterful work here www.traillphotography.com/
