Swindon and Pencil Lines

blogged by me domestic goddess On 10/14/2008 11:32:00 AM
It's been a hectic and manic weekend. Friday I packed my bags and headed down to Swindon to teach at the Abbey Meads Workshop with Sandie. I arrived lunch time and we headed out for a spot of shopping, well it just has to be done! Sandie's little girl Hannah came with us, and was happy to show me all the best aisles at The Range, all scrapping related I might add. Sandie has her well trained.

Saturday we were up early to head over to the workshop. Stopped by Tesco's for a chocolate croissant first, we needed some substance, hehehe.

24 eager ladies were waiting for us and the day went by without any hiccups. It was Sandie's first teaching spot, and she is a natural! So if you are looking for a new and exciting teacher, Sandie's your gal!

I taught a layered and my usual distressed looking layout with some Sassafrass, and a star book using We R Memory Keepers. I really do love star books, and have made many as gifts, don't give the star book the elbow just because it was all the rage a few years back... I say bring back the Star Book!.

We had a charity raffle in aid of Cancer Research UK, and we raised a whopping £178.00!!! So a HUGE thank you to all of the ladies for their generosity, and also to the fabulous UK and US stores and magazines who donated goodies.

Memories From the Attic

Thank you Ali and Trudy for having me, and to all the ladies for making me feel so welcome.

The day ended at 6pm, I dropped Sandie back home, grabbed a cuddle from Hannah and headed back home.

Sunday was a lazy day, the perfect Sundays don't you think. Lilly and I did some jewellery making (photos to follow this week), whilst Izzy was out playing with friends. Having this face to look at everyday makes me smile, makes me happy.

Izzy looked so grown up today, 36 hours away , and she seems all mature and grown up. This face makes me proud!

This weekend was another Pencil Lines milestone. We are 2 years old! This weekend our guest designer was the girls from One Little World. I was so excited as we were guest for OLW this week also. Do pop on over and check out all the amazing inspiration.

I am busy finalising classes for the Christmas workshop, (places still available)and my classes for ATDML.

Hope everyone is well and had a great weekend. Thank you all for your well wishes.
