back to blogging

Hello crafty friends
You may have noticed I have been away from my blog for a month. I took some time out with my family and to get some work done on my house. I have now finished the bedroom and tidied and moved my craftroom, so now I can work in a tidy room with all my crafty stash in a separate room.
I have also been busy running my Cricut retreats. The first one, last week, was fabulous and a big thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended. We had a great time. I am also running another which starts on Monday...looking forward to meeting new Cricuteers.
I am back on air after that and have loads of hours booked in up to Christmas. My hours include: Zentangle, Slice, American Crafts, EK Success, Jones Tones, Sunday Scrappers, Colorbok and many more.
I will post dates and times as soon as I get confirmation.
In the mean time check in next week for pictures of the Cricut retreat project which has been made with the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland cartridge.
Here is a photo of some of my Cricuteers working really hard last week.
Take care
Love and hugs
