Workshops and meeting friends

I had some brilliant news the other day. My local craft shop - The Art of Craft -  has accepted my offer of 4 workshops, so I will be teaching and demonstrating during October and November. If you know of anyone in the West Surrey/East Hampshire/Berkshire area who would like to learn distressing techniques using distress inks, make a Christmas card using distress techniques or make a mini-album, then keep an eye on the classes coming up on the Art of Craft website. When I have more details I will also let you know.

I had a brilliant day yesterday. It was off to Lucy's where I also met up with Zoe and Von. We did some crafting, lots of chatting and laughing and sharing ideas. What a pity none of us thought to get a camera out - just too wrapped up in what we were doing. Thanks girls I had a great time.

I also had 2 parcels waiting for me when I got home - both candy gifts from Suzanne and Angela. Another big thank you for papers, stamps, sketchbook and other bits and pieces and a wonderful comment from Suzanne about my work - how lucky am I?

My Stamp Man DT piece will be coming up later this morning and then I will be off to Birmingham for the weekend. I hope you enjoy the next few days especially those of us in the UK as we have a bank holiday Monday to look forward to.

Take care everyone.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

That's great news Brenda and strangely enough I do know the Art Of Craft people quite well from various shows as Jenny Mayes of Hobby Art is a friend and Claire that works for them at shows I know well as she used to work at a local craft shop.
Small world!
Hugs, Fliss xx
