MBE omgeeeee

I huge congratulation to Dean Penlington on receiving this greatly honourable distinction from the Queen in the New Years Honours.

 Mrs Penlington, AKA  Helen, has been a long time customers from years gone by, Helen and her lovely Mother Chris ( globe trotter extraordinaire) came to my card making classes many years ago and still craft to this day. Life has got in the way a little as Chris is making full use of her passport and having family all over the world, I am not sure that there is much card making getting done these days!
Helen and Dean moved over to Virgina Beach  USA last year and although it was a wrench for them to be parted from their large and very close family, it has been the right choice and by the sounds of it are having a ball. It has been an amazing time for them and their family, moving from Scotland to USA but it has allowed them to have a taste of the American life and they are loving it! These 3 years are flying by.

I was so pleased to hear their news, it is a amazing achievement to be recognised for you work and I am sure that Helen is already dress shopping for her trip to see the Queen where Dean will receive his MBE , oh and there will be a hat I am sure!

lots of love sent to them from a very cold Scotland oxo

The news of the MBE was wonderful and well deserved. At a time of such uncertainty in the RAF it was lovely to hear some good news for a change.
