Craft Barn Extravaganza

Good evening everyone.
Well after a hectic weekend and then a nightmare almost two and a half hour journey to Heathrow this morning I spent the rest of the afternoon unpacking my bags and repacking my "studio" I've had a lousy headache all day but wanted to begin to share my weekend with you all..... my wife was there on Saturday so she took some pics for me.....

Nice and relaxed first thing Saturday morning.

                                       In the process of transforming paper with distress stains.........

                                                         Triple embossing a butterfly...........

I want to thank everyone who visited my table and spent so much time watching and participating. You were all fabulous, your kind comments are really valued and I'm so glad to have met you.



This is just some of the papers I demoed; as promised, there will be a tutorial posted soon.
And some of the other bits......




It was a fabulous weekend; my thanks to Sandy and ALL the staff at the Craft Barn for hosting such a great event.
It was also lovely to meet you at last Brenda, and Alison, great to see you again. And some of you chatted as if you knew me from my blog but we never got round to introductions! Hope you all had a great time if you came.
Oh and lastly but by no means least, the lovely group of ladies who kept coming back for more over the two days; thanks for keeping me on my toes! (Thank you too for the chocolate treat, you know who you are!)

Lastly, for those of you who booked for my classes I look forward to seeing you again soon
Be Blessed in your creative journey......

I had a great day and likewise it was good to meet you at last too. You did a grand job with all your demoing and I am not surprised people want to attend workshops with you.
I hope your headache wears off very soon.
Take care.
