Hi there and welcome to a slightly soggy Thursday!
Hi folks and welcome to Thursday, how's it looking for you? Only one more sleep till Craftathon, getting quite excited as it will be the first time I've been on a "crafting retreat" and the first time meeting some of the others too - I've previously met Jacqueline, Karen and Wynneth but it will be a first for Cherry and Debs but I AM looking forward to the whole weekend. I'm on the train mid morning and Jacqueline will be changing at Cheltenham and hopping on to my train there. We get off at Worcester where Cherry will be meeting us and we'll head on with her, picking up Wynneth on the way. Debs and Karen are making their own way there and we're all aiming to arrive around 3:30 - for a little light crafting before dinner!!! We THINK we've organised ourselves so that everyone takes a technique so we should all be able to try something we perhaps haven't tried before AND we have the added bonus of a workshop at Dawn Bibby's shop! - run by Rachel Greig from Darkroom Door which is another bonus and one we're all looking forward to . . . . . and then there's the shopping! Oh Joy - as you all know ..... I DO LIKE TO SHOP and once had a T-Shirt that proclaimed "When I get tired of shopping ... I sit down and try on shoes"!! I just hope I've left enough room in my craft tote, for it all!!
Have a few cards to make today but I was making one yesterday when my pal Lauren rang with some great news which, sadly, I cannot share with you - but she's as pleased as she could be and I am mightily pleased for her too - WTG Lauren.
So, here's a piccie of the one I was making, Lauren quite threw me with her news and I quite ruined the accompanying envelope. I tried to rectify the error as I had been using a clear stamp but must have twitched on final placement as it looked like the Eddie Shah school of printing! Anyone remember the atrocious double printing in the now defunct TODAY newspaper?
Anyway, here's hoping that your Thursday sees you achieve everything you set out to, all the best to all of my readers. I may get the chance to post tomorrow before I go but, otherwise, I shall be AWOL till Sunday so please check back with me then . . .
