Fun Workshops at Birds in the Barn

Time to Flourish Box of Cards Clare Charvill Graphic 45
Evening and happy Friday to you.  Hope you've had a good week.  It's been a bad one weather wise here in the UK and we've more snow to come apparently.  Ols has been away to Bergamo in Italy and H & I have been cooking and doing arty things which has been fun.  the week has flown by and I've only just got to post on the little old blog.  I'm off to Daisy's Jewels and Crafts tomorrow if we don't get snowed in.  Our project (above) is my Time to Flourish Box of Cards. We've got our work cut out putting together and altering the box,  and making the 12 cards to go inside it from 8 x 8 Time To Flourish papers. (The Card Box kit and project sheet are available over on my webiste).  Will share some pics from the workshop with you on Sunday. 
My panic of the week was loosing my camera.  How it could disappear in the boot of the car is beyond me but today it decided to slide out of it's little hiding place who hoo!! so now I can share some pics from last weekends fabulous workshops at Birds in the Barn. Thank you Janet for your fabulous hospitality, Karen for the amazing egg sandwiches for lunch and ladies for coming along and having a great time.  

There's still a couple of days left to leave a comment on the January Giveaway post before midnight on 31st if you'd like to be in with a chance to win the 8 x 8 Curtain Call paper pad.  Here's the link.

Will catch up again over the weekend so until then thanks for calling by and keep warm :-)   


  1. Loved the photos of your weekend class. I am sure the ladies had a great time and went home with a beautiful project!!! Wondered why you didn't have any photos before, now we know, camera was hiding, lol.
    Take care Miss Clare, can't wait to see the next one!!

  2. Good Morning Clare, Glad to read that you found your camera as I've always enjoyed looking at your photos of your various workshops. As Judy (above) says, people always look as if they are having fun. Do hope today's workshop goes well and that you are not too badly affected by the weather - I don't suppose you have any news about a possible date for us currently snow -bound crafters in Yorkshire? On that note I'll close and wish you well for today! Take care and safe journey.

  3. Wow Clare, what a lovely set of cards, so pretty. Must add that paper pad to my wish list.
    We haven't had any snow here (Hertfordshire) - well just a couple of flurries, nothing that settled. I don't know how long we shall escape for. Like to see it but not so good when you have places to go.
