Be sure to watch Loti on Hochanda this Wednesday 9th May at 11am and 2pm - remember you saw her here first!!

Bio about the company:
Mama Makes is all about preserving memories and sending positivity through crafting. These stamps are perfect for cardmaking, journaling and scrapbooks. They are a perfect combination of modern, quirky and the perfect size for a multitude of projects. Mama Makes originally started as a craft blog in 2014, while Loti was on maternity leave. On Mother’s Day 2017, Mama Makes opened as a store selling Loti’s designs as photopolymer stamps. You might have seen the stamps as part of Katie Skilton and Paula Pascual’s demos on Hochanda or maybe in Papercrafter and Die Cutting Essentials magazine!
Loti Maria has been creative ever since she was a small girl watching Art Attack in her bedroom! This passion evolved over the years and was reignited when she was on maternity leave with her son, Charlie and found herself watching craft shopping television.
She then went onto work in craft shopping television and one day was offered something she couldn’t refuse, a chance to make her doodles, into photopolymer stamps, to sell. The rest is history!
Loti lives with her husband Esteban and son Charlie. All of the stamps are made in A grade 3mm photopolymer and are hand poured and packaged by Loti and her husband in their home. Loti designs all of the stamps digitally and takes time to think of quirky sentiments for all occasions. Some of Loti’s sentiments are words she wrote down to motivate herself through tough times and she hopes to help and inspire others by making them available as stamps.

This lovely flower and foliage are from Mamma Makes Foliage Frenzy. 

So I noticed one of my favourite plants is starting to return and that was my inspiration for this little card.
It comes back each year and has the most lovely orange/yellow colouring.
One day I will make the effort to find out what it's called.
(I don't know its name because so I rescued it from my my mother-in-laws garden, she was going to bin it).
 When it comes into full bloom I shall try to remember to take a picture, I'm sure one of you lovely people will recognise it straight away.

Well, back to studying.
I have my PTS course next week and I don't want to fail.

Hugs & Happy thoughts

(p.s. PTS for anyone who doesn't know means Personnel Track Safety (yeah I work for a railway company but don't hold it against me)
