CI HAPPENINGS.....


Hello Peeps

Monday morning will see Lesley and I heading down to Peterborough to the Hochanda studios.  Chocolate Baroque and Crafty Individuals both have shows on Tuesday, 1st May.  Lesley's first show is at 8am, then 2pm, and ours is at 10am.  Our teamies have surpassed themselves this time, and the samples for our show are truly delightful.  We will have some brand new stamps releasing on the show too, plus some simply stunning new background papers to accompany them, all with the 'Wow' factor!

After this we will be getting everything together for the Port Sunlight Happy Stampers show.  Will you be there on the 12th May?  We are in a different position this time - change is good - you will find us on the right hand side of the main hall next to Chocolate Baroque, with whom we are sharing a large stand.  Do join us if you can, providing you've got your ticket, of course.

Last weekend Lesley, David, Malcolm, Judith, myself and 18 lovely ladies got ourselves together in a local hotel for a very creative weekend.  A good time was had by all we believe.  Our sample makes are here below followed by some photos taken at the occasion.

Firstly here are all the ladies, ourselves, and lovely little Monty dog, who also likes to be in on the action..


Our sample makes 'All things grow with love' and 'Always follow your dreams'...



Here is Lesley holding the CB sample make, mid explanation...

Here are some of the other photos taken by our excellent 'in house' photographer Malcolm, during the weekend. Firstly some of our lovely participants, followed by some fabulous makes in progress....









Thank you to everyone involved for making the weekend so special, and thank you too for popping on by today!

Back soon,
Jean x

These creations are stunningly gorgeous! I will try to tune in on Tuesday if I can. It's the school hols and of course being an hour ahead of the UK means I should be prepping dinner.....do you think hubby & son can wait for their dinner?😉 I would love to learn how to make similar projects as your dt team....I wouldn't know where to start! Good luck with show, safe journey!

I’m so pleased to hear that your weekend went well Jean and Malcolm has taken a superb photo of you all. The samples are stunning, and I just adore the colours and layout on the first one. Well done too to the ladies who attended as they also have created some stunning pieces of art. Good luck with your show on Tuesday, and to Lesley too and wishing you both a safe journey and fun time. Crafty hugs, Sandra x x
