A Fabulously Crafty Weekend had by all

Morning everyone, what a fabulous two days of crafting we had here over the weekend in Kenilworth.  Thank you ladies for joining me and making the weekend such a great success.  Thanks also to the staff at the Holiday Inn, Kenilworth for their support and service. 
By 10ish Friday eve the room was ready, kits boxed up with badges and event tags, shop out and we were ready to role.  Thank you Sarah, Karen, Jashree, Jane and Fran for all your help setting up. 
and then it was ready steady craft on Saturday..............................  lot's of happy smiley faces as everyone's projects came together.........

Kathy late night crafting .............cheers everyone ..........

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday, the hottest of the year so far so I swung past the castle just around the corner from the hotel and took a few pics across the meadow before the start of day 2.  
Day two always fly past too quickly and before we knew it our fabulous weekend had come to an end.......   
My plan this week is to have a chilled day today to unwind and recharge my batteries and then get all of the projects we made over the weekend, and the new kits up and live on the website, so if you fancy making any of them yourself they will appear in the Alter Me Kits and PDF Tutorial sections of the website shortly.  
If you'd like to join me at my next retreat in November click here for more info and bookings. 
I'm off to do my Mum la Taxi duty now so I'll have to love you and leave you.  Thanks you ladies once again for the best weekend and look forward to catching up with you all again shortly.

After working 15 hour days for the past week I'm having one day off from everything today and then will be back in action tomorrow. Hope you enjoyed the services yesterday and if I don t get to catch up gain before the weekend Happy Easter. I'm sure you'll be busy with preparations and services. xx :-) C
