July to December.

Good afternoon lovely friends and followers. Following on from yesterday's blog we are going to cover the second part of our crafty year...

July was the first Clarity Anglesey and thanks to help from Julie it went really well and was soon repeated and we have the village hall booked for more classes in 2016

At Clarity we had the release of the Christmas Wee Folk

I also got chance to travel to Bristol , stay with my lovely friend Yvonne and have a crafty weekend with a generous and talented group of crafty friends.

August and I was invited to demonstrate at the Paper Warehoues Summer Crafting event in Kendal...

This was a real treat especially as I was born in Kendal...such a fabulous shop and I am so happy to say that I now run regular classes there...

Things were busy with the Sweet Lilac Flowers design team too.

September was another busy month as we had the Clarity Open Days in Catterick and some more Christmas new releases.

Great Santa stamp ....looks fab in pyrography too.

And these gorgeous snowflakes...

October, this was the month that we got to play with the new Christmas Stencils...now you know how much I love to use Stencils

And get messy with Distress Inks..

November, yet another busy month with usual classes and the first of our local day workshop . Manchester Crafts was born and really well received...and yes more dates have been booked for 2016

It was Christmas on Hochanda tv..and playtime with the Color Burst powders from Ken Oliver.

December , already....

And we had new Wee Tree and Foliage stamps.

Plus some fantastic Stencils

So there we have a snap shot of the last six months...

I am so lucky to be able to meet and craft with such wonderful people and I would like to thank all the lovely crafters who attend my classes, support me with my magazine work, buy my crafty items, and come here to read and comment....I really could not do it without you...

I thank you from the bottom of my heart...

The last twelve months have been brilliant and I am so looking forward to the next twelve months...

Happy New Year all.....

Much love and hugs...

Jo. xxxx

  9. What a very busy and amazingly creative year you've had. I've enjoyed looking back over the year with you and seeing again your wonderful work. I definitely need to know the date in August when both you and Linda are at the paper wharehouse together; such a shame that your classes there began as I returned to work. Happy new year and wishing you continued success in 2016. Love & hugs, Jeanette xxx
