Good morning all,
Hope you had a lovely weekend.
We had our Christmas Party in Cumbria on Saturday ,
what a wonderful day spent with such a fabulous group of Crafters.
You know , things happen in life,
accidents, ill health, family break up etc
Events that let you know who your real friends are.
Well I have seen first hand with all my lovely Crafters across all the workshops
just how they rally around each other ,
friendships have been made , and
this really is the nice side of crafting.
There has been so much nastiness around in the industry , especially with recent developments ,
and I have seen first hand some really disappointing, underhand behaviour.
So it is so fabulous to see the other side and be involved with real,
genuine , kind, decent people....
It really warms my heart.
We started off using these fabulous little stamps from Lavinia
You know how I love a wreath card
Look at these gorgeous cards ,
After coffee and chocolates
(Thank you Barbara )
We had a play with blending, layering and a log slice
It was great to see the ladies and gentleman (morning Peter )
Create this card, they just took it slowly , building it up
one step at a time,
And look at these beauties
We stopped for lunch and what a banquet it was , so much yummy food,
Thanks everyone, and thanks Sheila.
After the crackers had been pulled , and our tummies were full .
We had a couple of prizes to give away including a Lavinia Calendar which the
very lovely Tracey Dutton had signed ( big thank you Tracey )
Well done Gwen on your win.
Even though we all felt like a little nap,
we created this card,
Simple stamping and using a die from Clarity
After more tea and cake...( oh yes , I was so full )
We created a little tag
I do love using stamps in a different way...
Now I didn’t have time to photograph everyone’s tags
but here are a few
I just love the different colours.
To the few ladies who were unwell and unable to come
Hope you feel better soon.
I must get on,
Lots on the list for today ,
As it is little man’s day tomorrow and workshops on Wednesday
Oh and thanks to Mary , my back is so much better
Tens machines are wonderful
Take care all
Much love and hugs
