Last week was crazy here – sooooo busy. With the new website going live, two TV shows on Create and Craft and a Workshop in the space of 10 days I guess that’s hardly surprising.
I didn’t blog for a few days, partly because it was hectic, but mainly because we needed to tweak the website a little. This has been done now so you will be able to see the posts clearly and not hidden in a jungle of other information. That means, although you may not hear from me every day, the Design Team will be saying “Hello” on a regular basis!
After a busy week it was lovely to end it with a Workshop which I thoroughly enjoyed. 27 ladies attended and a good time was had by all. The day went very quickly and I’m sure lots of the ladies needed a long rest when they got home because we worked them very hard!
Everybody Working Hard…
I didn’t eat all the gaps (promise)… but in hindsight maybe should of taken the picture before tea break 😀
I’d been asked to do “scene-its” so we made a concertina card using the Country Garden set which took a while. Then we made a quick and easy butterfly pop-up explosion card. Although it was easy to do I think it’s awesome.
Heidi Green, one of our talented Design Team, helped on this Workshop so the day was divided with 2 projects with her and 2 with me. I think you’ll agree her projects are stunning. The poppy one uses the Remembrance set and the “book” one uses the bell set and one stamp from the vintage set.
Peter (Director/Production Manager at Hobby Art) and his twin brother are raising money for Princess Alice this year. Since I didn’t fancy the London to Brighton cycle race, or the Tough Mudder Assault course they’re doing later on in the year, Becki and I decided to have a raffle at the Workshop. This raised £163 (Thanks you ladies) which took the boys over their target. Here are the winners!
1st Raffle Prize
1st Prize Basket of Goodies – Dene Hayton
2nd Prize £20 to spend in the shop – Judy Williams
3rd Prize A stamp set of choice – Jackie Latter
The August and October (Christmas) workshops are full but, due to list of people wanting places I will be repeating the Christmas Workshop in November. I’m just waiting for the date to be confirmed so watch this space if you’re interested. The first 10 places go to the ladies already on the waiting list!
