As promised in my last post I am going to post some of the piccies taken at the weekend workshop recently, that CI and Chocolate Baroque held together with some fantastic crafting folk here in the North East of England.  Firstly the whole group of us (except Malcolm as he took the photo)..

Followed by individual piccies of various folk and makes that were made, or were in the process of being made at the time.  The first day we concentrated on assembling a variety of 'junk' journals, and on the second morning we made a piece of home decor on canvas..

Any familiar faces?  We had a fabulous time, hope you did too, and many thanks for your company.

Whilst photos are the order of the day the most recent show we had a stand at was at Doncaster with Stamp Magic.  Here is the stand, followed by a little touch of artistic participation from one of our cutest and keenest younger customers...

What a sweetheart and great artist in the making!

Finally a little array of inspirational pretties, starting with a daisy frame by lovely customer Angela Mitchell..

A couple of journal pages by creative Corrine Rollett..

Two lovely large Christmas tags by talented teamie Sylvie..

A cool calendar page by teamie Chris - what a great idea!..

.... and probably not exactly pretty, but certainly very creative, are two crow/raven makes by Sally Holmes and one other following in the steps of the great Edgar Allan Poe...

What a collection!

Back soon,

Lovely photos Jean and you can see how much everyone enjoyed themselves. I love the one with you and the little girl, she looks so enthralled and it just reminds me of when I’m crafting with my own little Granddaughter. There are some beautiful pieces of art in this post and I love the cards by Sally too, especially the first one as it has such a fabulous colour palette and she’s created a great scene. Thank you for sharing Jean. Crafty hugs, Sandra x x
