Christmas with Fiskars...

Hi folks...greetings from Birmingham...yes I've arrived safely and the workshop area is all set up ready to rock 'n roll...my little home from home..."a temporary cubbyhole without the Furry Boy sadly"...for the next 4 days and I guarantee it won't be looking this tidy by the end of the day...
but it's time to drag myself out of bed...jump into a hot wake me up shower then get mixing the polyfilla to sort out the old face before heading down for that all important "stock up the energy levels" full English breakfast which will put me in the mood for a fun day with lots of lovely crafty folks. Day 1 and I'll be flying by the seat of my pants...fine tuning the timing of the workshops for a speedy 10 minute turn around...fingers crossed that the old voice holds up and by the end of the day I'll be well and truly back in the swing.
I'll be sharing some Christmas Makes with you until I return to the real cubbyhole...starting off with another Christmas with Fiskars project I'm sharing today over on the Fiskarettes blog...
using the new Christmas Trees Border Punch in a different way...
to create some texture on those trees...


If you're coming to the show...please pop by and say hello or if you want to book into a free Fiskars Workshop come and see me in the workshop area at Stand J09
I'll be back tomorrow with more Christmas makes.
Hugs Kath xxx

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and your demos go smoothly (as I am sure they will).
Enjoy your full English breakfasts and try to take a few moments for yourself...you deserve it.
