In total Flat Susan will visit and stay with 36 people before she returns home. Yes, thirty six! That's a lot of travelling for such a tiny person. If you are new to this blog perhaps you should scroll to the very first post so you know more about who she is and what is happening with her. You are welcome to take the button on the right to display on your own blog and we hope you will visit the blogs of the people she has been staying with and leave a kind comment after your reading.

Pushing the Right Buttons with Jenny

Hi everyone and welcome. I've been hosting a well travelled little friend recently and it's my turn to share that time with you. For those of you who aren't familiar with Flat Susan she is the brainchild of the lovely Neet (Hickydorums) and has been travelling the World (in her very own suitcase!)

Living right next to the Trent and Mersey Canal it was essential that Susan got to see it's delights and as luck would have it there was a floating market taking place. I marvelled at the fact that so many clever people could live and work in such a small place but Susan reminded me that it was all a question of being organised when you're small. Funny, that would prove to be somewhat prophetic! 

And there was another fortuitous event for Susan to attend. I got the chance to meet up with fellow creatives Anne Redfern (Redanne) and Tracy Evans (Craft Addicts) for a wonderful pub lunch. Bless her, Susan found it almost impossible to get a word in sideways! It's so very rare I get the opportunity to leave the confines of the craft room and this was a real treat.

Talking of confines... I've been kinda chained to the laptop more recently (the necessities of setting up a new DT and managing another) so Susan became a rather constant companion in these endeavours. In fact she's really got the hang of touch typing, not bad for someone who's reach only extends to about four keys at a time! Remember what she said earlier about 'it all being a question of organisation'? I've discovered that Susan is very good at making lists and cracking the whip...

Something else, she's become a 'dab hand' at is using "FlitterGlu" 
So while I got to grips with the stamping side Susan worked that Scoochy like a pro.  I'm telling you that girl has an amazing eye for detail.
And so, with her CV nicely extended and a new tag in hand, it's time to head off to visit Rosie (Crafting at S G) down the road. It's been a joy to host this special little lady and I look forward to seeing where she travels over the coming weeks and months. Jenny


  1. Hi Jenny. The canal market looks like so much fun. I can see you had a great time with flat Susan; she is the perfect guest.

    Perhaps she should come visit me again as I need some help in organising things. I also need a boost to start blogging again.


  2. Thank you for a lovely and lively recounting of your time with the wee lass, Jenny! You showed her a very good time, I see! And thank you for sharing the beautiful photo of Annie, Tracy, and you! How wonderful that the four of you got together for a pub lunch! I wish I could have been there!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. FS had a lovely visit with you, Jenny! I thought I had left a comment here before, but perhaps it was on your own blog. I was beyond delighted to see the lovely photo of you and Annie and Tracy! I hope you are enjoy your DT duties!! Hugs, Darnell


Thank you for reading about my adventures, hope you come back and read more. I am always on the move.
