Not goodbye, 'au revoir'!

Thank you so much Mickey for hosting and organising my 'Bon Voyage' Party!!

Thank you to all those who came and all those who were with us in spirit!
We had a lovely day crafting with lots of sharing and borrowing... and we ate cake!
As my craft room is now dismantled - and partially on its way to Australia - I will enjoy spending the dollars on replenishment!! Thank you!!




And then we ended up in the pub...


In all, a brilliant day!

Thank you Elaine for making the banner:



I was delighted to receive some beautiful and creative cards:






Many of you made terrific tags...

  


 

...to go in my marvellous memory book, made by Sue Tossell!


It is fabulous !!









Thank you to those who found all the photos too! 


Finally a big thank you to Mickey and UKSN for welcoming me so warmly into the fold,
encouraging me to take part in all those swaps
and giving me the opportunity to participate in, is it 5 years of?, brilliant crafty retreats. Each year I have so enjoyed CR1 and CR2!!


So... until we meet again...


Happy Crafting!

CR2 Round Up

Sorry it has taken me so long to finish my reports on CR2 2019 - I am now back in Australia after the week in Fiji for our middle son's wedding...


So I have some internet again...

I think I have written a little about each workshop and shown you lots of pictures!

 It was a weekend full of craft, chat, cake and more craft. As always we had our Raffle,  Secret Summer Santa Sack, Button competition, Craft Celebrity board, The look what other crafts I do table, a Preloved stand and a Card competition, Die cut exchange, Scrap and Share exchange, and a door prize!!!  




At the end of our first day we usually play Sheila Jordan’s consequences... we make cards that are given away to our elected charity.This always proves to be a lot of fun as well as making beautiful cards  for charity.



Happy Crafting and see you next year!

Craft Retreat 2, 2019 Nicola Brown's Workshop

I really enjoyed putting this photo frame together in Nicola's workshop...




This was the brief

Nicola Brown just loves her mixed media and she will be guiding you through how to make a picture frame that is decorated with realistic handmade paper flowers that you will make using a flower quilling die.  Add a special photo and you will have a lovely gift or a beautiful addition to your mantle piece.


Here are some of the photos that show how much fun we were having:
















And look at the fabulous frames we made:
