Craftaganza Day !

Hi everyone, well I am absolutely shattered but very, very happy indeed!!!!!! I am at my very first Craftaganza (which is run by Crafter's Companion for any of you who do not know).

So I am sat bleary eyed in my hotel room typing away here to share what I have been making on day 1 out of 3. I have had an absolute blast meeting all my crafty friends in the flesh and getting all creative together.

After a heart breakfast I headed off to my first workshop of the day ...... beading with the gorgeous Sarah Millsop. What can I say ....... well, hmmmmm I do not think I am a natural beader although I did enjoy it. As you can see I have a long way to go to finish my necklace and bracelet although you may spot a complete pair of ear-rings :o)

As I have discovered once you can master the perfect loop you are sorted ........ a little bit trickier than it loos but Sarah is such a wonderful teacher and oh so patient!!!! I am going to finish this (I promise) at home and post pics of the finished set.

We then stopped for a rather scrummy lunch and then headed off for a session with Sheena Douglass. I was really looking forward to this after doing Paint Fusion a couple of years ago with her. My god that woman can talk ..... and talk ..... and talk ..... I love her!!!!!  I have been looking for a new direction for my card making and I think I have found a new love - Sheen - THANKYOU so much, I just loved this session.. I got all inky and messy and wow, I had a blast!!!!! I am going to be treating myself to some new products I think and will be getting all messy at home - you should see the sparkle on this in real life. I am so happy with my first attempt.I am going to photograph this properly when I get home.

Another little break - afternoon tea this time (we are so civilised) and then I headed off to the one and only Leann Chivers for some good old colouring with Spectrum Noirs. This was my lovely comfy session to end the day and I had a great time colouring the gorgeous Strawberry Kisses image and making a card. Nothing like a little of what you are used to making to give you a little reassurance again, lol.

What a great first day!!!! All rounded off with a fabulous 3 course meal and then birthday cakes too. 

Thankyou Sara and the team for a brilliant first day.

See you all again in the morning xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
