....I'm sorry for this slightly late post (I was too busy dancing round my house) but I only went and got through to the finals of the GTS!! 
I actually hadn't planned to get this far, I just thought the semi-finals would be nice, get my name in front of the coolest panel of judges, then carry on! 
But now,  I've got another brief to do... it's big... I have to design my own home range.. I don't know where to start! 
Wow, I just want to thank those lovely judges for picking me, the comments they wrote were amazing, thank you... especially the 'creating flowers for the universe' one... I'm right on it! Thank you also to everyone who voted for me and took the time to like my bag. Thanks and love also to the MATS girls.. we carried each other through this.... my new friends from all over the world. I wish we were all in the finals, that's the sad part... especially my friend Dawn ... she's not just my design friend, she's one of my besties and I know she wanted to be here with me. She's still a champion to me anyway!
So now it's me and five mega talented others, Zoe IngramEmily Balsley, Josephine Kimberling, Daniel Roode and Vesper Stamper. Good luck guys...we can do it!
Right this sounds a bit too much like an Oscars speech, I'd better get off here and get going... I've got to try and fit it in with a tonne of other work.... I apologise to my family already for what's to come over the next couple of weeks... I will try and remain nice! ha ha!
