Who forgot her Camera

Happy 1st of December to you.  It was an early and very foggy start for me yesterday as I headed up the M1 to Rotherham to set up for a fabulous workshop with all the lovely ladies who came along.  Our project for the day was a Twas the Night Before Christmas folio album, the last in my series of four little albums that you can make from an 8 x 8 paper pad.  In all the excitement of the day I completely forgot to take any photos of everyone crafting away and only realised at the last minute as everyone was leaving.  Huge apologies ladies, but thank you Margaret for catching the last of us before we all headed home. 

I'm booking more dates with the hotel for 2015 and a crafty weekend too.  All the info will be posted on the workshops and events page of my blog over the next few days. 

I'm a day late announcing the winner of our November Giveaway. selected No 5, and  comment number 5 on the post was left by Patricia Howarth.  Congratulations Patricia, the Sleigh and all the little baubles will be whisking their way to you this week :-) 

I'm off to get crafty with the new Time to Flourish papers this afternoon smile smile, it I can bring myself to cut ingot hem lol!!!   Enjoy the rest of your day and look forward to sharing some more crafty inspiration with you again later in the week if you call by.

  4. Morning Clare, Just wanted to say a BIG "Thank You" (again) for a great day on Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and am absolutely tickled-pink with my album. Can't wait for next time. Can I also say many congratulations to Patricia on winning a great prize - I am sooooo jealous. Take care

  5. Morning Clare and everyone, I had missed this post, and my prize just arrived this minute, I was dumbfounded when I opened the package, the sleigh is absolutely fantastic, and I can't believe how lucky I have been to win it. Thank you so very much, Clare.
