Pat and George were kept busy packing up the retreat survival kits and my mum and dad were sorting goody boxes and wrestling with chicks and Easter baskets.
Keepsake key rings were handed out at the hotel reception as Cardcampers checked in.
Back at Crab Apple Crafts we served coffee and cake during the afternoon and it was good to chat with so many of you before the heavy stuff got going!
We formally welcomed everyone at the hotel at 6.30 and gave out the official glue of the weekend - in our opinion the best thing since sliced bread!
Our session for the Friday evening was a shorter one as it had been a long day for many who had travelled some distance to get here and we were all pretty stuffed after dinner too! We used Kaisercrafts Bubblegum Hill range to make a folded card with a matching band to keep it closed. It went down a treat and even though we were using our trimmers to score, Nige did a roaring trade in Hougie boards and books when lots of ladies realized how much fun folded cards were and, more importantly, how essential it was to score accurately (no names mentioned).
And so to bed!
Will blog some more tomorrow about Saturday.
Love Rosemary x
ps What happened to the sun today. I have been inside all weekend and the day I get to see the outside world it goes grey! Started some spring cleaning and a fence panel blew out in the garden. Sorted that with Joel and then my whirly wheel rotary dryer with 3 wash loads on it snapped and landed everything onto the grass. Need to go lie down with one of the choccy gifts I received at the weekend!
