Time to catch up

Good afternoon and thanks for spending a few minutes with has Sunday treated you? Well, I hope...

I just thought I would have a little catch up with you...

On Thursday I drove up to Kendal to the Paper Warehouse , what a lovely group of crafters...a few of the ladies I had met before at Clarity Cumbria..I do love teaching new techniques and sharing crafty ideas.

As it was a day class we had time to make a few different designs.

Lunch was provided, and how yummy it was too

Then I went to visit my parents and have a Birthday meal with them as it was my Dads Birthday yesterday...

Happy Birthday Dad....xxxx

Yesterday it was workshop day at CJ. CardCraft in Edgeley, Stockport and we got down and dirty...( note these are Not My hands!!!)

We decorated Thermometer Houses....( spot the Clarity Stencils )

These make fantastic little pieces of art.

And great gifts.

Here are some photos from the day...

Look at the concentration ...


Susan was on top form...



And today has been all about long dog walks and cutting things back in the garden...oh things have grown...all this sunshine and showers...

Time now to make the meal, only Karl and me tonight , so something light...

Next week is another busy week with workshops on Wednesday and then the two days in Catterick....the Clarity Open Days...have you got your tickets yet? ..if you can come along I can really recommend it, a great day...lots of brilliant demonstrations, time to talk and ask questions, time to shop....and yes...time to have coffee and cake...

Take care and see you soon,
