Hi Everyone,

Had to share this with you before I head to the motor tax office today ( deadline…everything till the last minute as usual lol!)  But here are some sneak peaks of some of the items you will get to play with at our makes and takes this weekend 🙂  I really can’t wait.

Two of the classes are nearly full, so if you are planning on booking a place I would do so now (it will also help the teachers have their kits ready :-))

Remember we are also having a competition in three categories, so make sure to bring your entries along this weekend.  i will have more details on this tomorrow, until then here are the categories and the sneak peaks 🙂

1) Handmade cards

2)  Scrapbook Layout

3) Mixed Media / Altered Item

Sneak Peak!

‘SUMMER bought a SatNav lol!!

Isn’t it wonderful to finally feel the heat of summer ( approx 20 celsius / 68 fahrenheit) here in County Mayo on the West coast of Ireland.  I have a lot to celebrate today:  1) The Sun;  2) Misty (my beautiful Westie) has had her pups, mother and puppies doing well and 3) I’m planning my crafty day on Saturday with Crafting Ireland wohoo!

Really looking forward to watching creativity in action at the crop and catching up with our crafting network!  As promised here is a sneak peak of the Demo/Make and Take that I have planned for the day.  Hopefully, these samples will inspire you.  Lots of fun guaranteed!  You will get to Playwith the ‘Movers and Shapers‘ dies as well as the ‘Stamp and Die Cut Sets’.  Roll on Saturday…
