A fun day by the Sea in Mundesley

Morning everyone, hope you're enjoying your weekend.  Larger than expected volumes of orders on the website have kept me away from crafting for the past couple of weeks which is why I've been really quiet on here and FB. A 48 hour day would really help at the mo!!!!! 
I did head off to Norwich on Friday for a very short but fun stay with friends and then drove on to Mundesley early doors yesterday morning to host a workshop at the Create with Mates crafting event. Thanks Tina for organising the event and huge thanks ladies for coming along and joining me for the day.  
We altered Pencil Case kits and made mini albums to go inside them, all decorated in papers from the Maser Detective Collection by Graphic 45 .  Here's a few pics from the day.

What a great time we had :-)  
There's just a couple of days left to leave a comment on this months giveaway.  Here's the link if you'd like to take part. 
Our winner will be announced here on the blog on 1st August. Good luck :-) 
With Oli now in his new home and Harry in his new bedroom I'm taking a couple of weeks off from crafting to turn Harry's old room into my long awaited workroom.  It's been weeks in the planning, including various trips to Ikea (which is just 7 minutes away for me) to design.  I've a huge Pinterest board full of Ikea craft room pics, have watched loads of craft room videos for ideas, and think I've got everything I need in there covered.  I'll share some pics of how its going with you on 1st Aug :-)
Have a fun rest of your day, thanks for calling by and look forward to announcing our Giveaway winner with you all here on 1st Aug. :-) Cx

  8. Hi Clare, I love all your projects! I really like Jacky's book of workshops too. I have thought of doing something similar with the project/album workshops I have purchased from you, showing the alterations I have made to make them my own, of course I have not done it!
    I am sending you this note after you showed your new workspace. It is beautiful! I hope you will enjoy crafting there. I missed you while you were busy with life and renovation.
