Hi Everyone, I am sitting here at the breakfast table (well, actually I am standing at the “breakfast counter”…no room in the dining part of the kitchen…or the hall, or the spare bedroom with all the boxes lol!)
So! Great day yesterday at our Sale and Crop in Athlone 🙂 the crafting season has officially started for me. It was great to see some of the new product on display and the excitment it generated…it’s the part I love most about being a retailer…that first glimpse! And then the crafter in me loves using it lol!
And of course we had Finnabair join us for a crafty day. It was her day off but as you can see by the photos she is a natural teacher and gifted artist so she unconsciously switched to demo mode and shared her creativity with us. Thanks Ania 🙂 xx
I cannot recommend her highly enough…if you can get to do one of her classes, do….she is a fab, fab teacher. (and I do know she is teaching a class in conjunction with Cork Art Supplies on the 22nd September.. :-))
We also had a fab mini class/make and take with the very talented Sandie Dunne making a stunning card using one of sizzix’s framelits and textured impressions set.
Of course the day wouldn’t have been the same without a few prizes 🙂 I set a little challenge with another of our Make and Take’s, creating a beautiful Ballroom slipper with Brenda Waltons die and some crafty goodies set up at the table….Finnabair acted as judge and picked a fab slipper created Patricia O’Leary who won a Sizzix Sizzlits die set as her prize. Well done “Cinderella”!
