Craft Weekend and New Friends
Hello everyone, I have been away for the weekend with my upliner angela.
we went to Pudsey to do alittle business training and crafting it was such a laugh.
We started the day of with introductions and i finally got to meet some of julies jems, and I'm sure I've made some good friends. Then onto crafting where we were shown how to make a gorgeous little gift handbag by chris who had just returned home from Egypt.
Isn't the bag so cute and no stamping......
Ive met so many lovely ladies and i absolutely loved julie who planned the workshop. Many thanks julie you are a scream.
We then had a buffet lunch and julie had even got us all a cupcake with the concord crush colour scheme very clever.
Then back to work where we made five cards using the just believe stamp set and i met julie kirkham, it was very confusing with so many julie,s i thoroughly enjoyed crafting along side julie k . Hopefully we will stay in touch and become firm friends.
Then onto the raffle, my upliner angela won a prize i was so pleased for her and she even gave me the brights buttons. Thanks angela.......
After all that crafting the pub was calling us so off we went and had a great meal. Unfortunately not everyone could make the meal but it meant i could get to know the other girls who i had'nt spoke to at the hall. Time to say goodbye after the meal and myself and Angela headed of to the hotel bar to share a bottle of wine.
Unfortunately the bar wasn't a hive of activity and i think the barman wanted an early night as the music was switched off , then the smell of bleach wafted through the air. Then before we knew it most of the lights were turned off and bar locked up, it was only 11.00pm.
So off to bed we went, tired after a great fun day...............
