On the other side!

Well that's it then - another retreat bites the dust. But what a great time we had. It was so lovely to catch up with crafty friends. Bookings for next November opened during the weekend and I have to tell you that there are only between 15 and 20 vacant places. Mr Nigel will be putting out details as soon as he gets his act back together.

There were plenty of chairs to go around but Joel called this crafting yoga!

We had hoped to chill a little this week but our only day off was spent closing our caravan in Welshpool for the winter and we had to dash home from there as a leak that had sprung in Georgia's roof during the retreat weekend got worse with the torrential rain. No rest for the wicked!

For those of you not on Facebook/twitter I wanted to share a couple of the projects we completed over the weekend.

After seeing this project in a magazine some years back I have wanted to use it for ever since. The mini book opens to reveal lots of spaces for photos/sayings etc.

The photo does not do this justice - everybody loved it. It is quite sizeable at aprrox 18" x 12" but looks delightful and was great fun to make.

This was our quick and easy Friday night project using the lovely Carta Bella Beautiful papers.

We are being asked for kits of a lot of what we do on retreats and in classes and this is something, along with the video tutorials!!, we are considering. I have scheduled out a couple of weeks late December to get down to looking at both.

Anyway onwards and upwards. Prepping today for my Sunday Scrappers show on Create and Craft this coming Sunday at 9-11am, as well as spending some time with Craft and Chatters at Crab Apple. I have some great bumper kits to show on Sunday.

  1. Wow - the projects look great as usual and glad you all had a good time (hiding jealousy really - only kidding!). Can't wait to check out the dates for next years retreats and hopefully will get a place this time. Project packs sound like a good idea - love the heart plaque and they would make great gifts too. Will be watching Sunday - good luck xxx

  2. What a busy life you lead! I often wonder if being quiet affects creativity but that's a matter for another day, as you definitely don't have an issue with your creative juices not flowing :-)
    Could you please put my name down on the kit wishlist for the canvas Christmas project? Thank you x

  3. looks like everyone had a wonderful time...shame I live so far away...hugs kath xxx
