Christmas Craftacular - Speed Crafting!!

Here is another of the events that I have been involved in over the last couple of weeks.  It was a fundraising evening, raising awareness and well needed funds for North Devon Against Domestic Abuse.  It was quite a manic evening, with 80 ladies taking part.  There were four crafts on offer - ceramics, dry point etching, needle felting and papercrafting with me!  Each lady did two crafts which meant there were 20 people for an hour, half an hour break and then another 20 ladies for another hour. Luckily my sister came and helped me - she also helped me prep all the card and ribbon which was quite a task in itself!!

It was a really great evening, and everyone looked as if they were enjoying themselves - the most important thing is that over £800 was raised for NDADA.  A great big shout out goes to my dear friend Nicola and her husband Martin, who organised and ran the entire event - check out Nicola's website over at

Lots of people have been asking when the next one will be, so they must have enjoyed it!!!

More news from me soon.

Where does the time go...

I can't believe that 10 days have gone past without a blog post (slap my wrist!).  Life is hectic, as always, but I din't realise it was that long.
Well, I'll do my best to make up for it with a few pictures of why I've been busy....

Last week I was kindly invited to hold at workshop in South Molton for the 'Women Do Business' group. It was held at KK Design Originals in Griffins Yard. Firstly, it was a pleasure to meet everyone, but secondly, the venue was amazing!! Thank you so much to Kath for letting us hold the workshop at her shop/studio. If you like anything at all to do with sewing, you must visit KK Design. She holds workshops to make the most stunning pieces, and you can find all her details here...

We used the Endless Wishes stamp set and everyone made a card and a little gift box (Tiny Treat box).  

These Tiny Treat boxes are fantastic value for money at only £6.25 for 25 boxes.  I think they're great so  my challenge for this Christmas is to find little presents for everyone! 

More details of what I've been up to coming soon!

Last Weekends Activities...

Here is a picture of what I got up to last weekend!  My dear friend Sarah came to play and brought some of her friends too!  It was a really lovely evening - with just the five of us there was plenty of time for a bit of stamping and a lot of chatting!!

Everyone made a card, two gift boxes and a matching tag using the Endless Wishes stamp set and the Tiny Treat Boxes and the Kraft Boxes.

If you have a group of friends that would like to have a creative evening together, just let me know. I can tailor the project to suite your requirements!

..And Finally...

This is the last card in the 5,4,3,2,1 Christmas Countdown.  It is the most detailed of all the cards, and everyone will make one card in the workshop.

When I first saw this card I thought it was quite complicated, but actually, when you start putting it together, it is really straight forward. and I think you'll agree - it looks great!!

The sides have been concertinaed to create the depth, and the snowmen have been highlighted with Dazzling Details.

As always, the products used are listed below.  Click on any of the product images to go to my online shop!

How are you doing with your own Christmas cards - has anyone finished making them yet?
