Back to earth with a bump...

Hi folks...I'm back down to earth with a bump after a fabulous fun Craft Retreat Weekend...it's a bit of a thought to get back into the cubbyhole work stuff...after all the running around like a headless chicken prep I can't believe it's over...where did the weekend go but it's time to share Workshop 3 from Saturday...a cute wreath made with Craftwork Cards Vintage Flowers Pad...
and Workshop 4 on Sunday morning...
all raring to go after their Ladies Rugby Team shenanigans on Saturday night...
that's a story for another time...
 I just had to sneak in a Hero Arts project made with "Holiday Cheer" Stamps and Frame Cuts...
What better way to spend a weekend than with lots of fun crafters and from the hilarity coming from each classroom...I'm sure they enjoyed it as much as we did. Big thank you to Charlotte and her team at The Papeterie for all their hard work ensuring it all ran like clockwork...for spoiling us with the excellent catering and a special thank you to all the lovely girls who came along to share in the fun...hope to see you all next time.

some of the lucky winners in the "time to say goodbye" raffle...

a rare photo of the lovely Charlotte...our leader and organiser extraordinaire...

what a co-incidence that everyone won a prize in the raffle and also went home with a fabulous "filled to the brim" goody bag.
To be honest I've got that deflated feeling this morning...missing the company and buzz of the weekend...not to mention the fact that if I stay in one place too long...the old body is in danger of seizing up so I'm hot footing it over to The Papeterie to kit up for next Saturday's Craftwork Cards Workshop....coffee butteries and a chinwag are a cure for all ills and if that excuse doesn't wear...I left my favourite jacket in the office...see you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

  6. Good morning Kath, love your wreath and card Kath, so glad you had such a fab time, and talking about Craftworks Cards, I said hello to Julie Hickey at the Craftworks Cards Stand yesterday and she said to say hi to you too. Not sure she knew me until I mentioned the famous Kath Stewart.

    Have a good week.

    Big Hugs Carol X
