"First Workshop make"

Hello Blog friends, followers and poppers by.  Thank you for calling in to see what I have been up to.
Not a lot at the moment, still getting visitors bearing flowers and gifts.  Love having them, but it does steal away some of my free time.  Had wonderful visitors yesterday,  my niece Gillian and her lovely partner Andrew.   Gillian is a brilliant Podiatrist, she came bearing her bag of tools and did my feet.  I get her to do this every 2 maybe 3 months it is just fantastic.  I am fortunate to have very good feet.  The nails on my big toes are getting rather thick (bit like my head) I find them hard to cut.  I even managed to "skip" through my house works this morning.
I mentioned that I did a day of  Workshops on Friday (just one day of a three day Retreat)  in Aberdeen at the Papeterie.  It was really good, I  enjoyed every minute.  Hazel and I thinking about doing the whole 3 days at the next one in April 2015, still under discussion at the moment.
Here is the first thing we made:-


The packs were all made up with everything needed:-
Canvas which we painted with Chalk Paint
MME Joyous paper
TH Snowman Stamp & Die Set
Tattered Poinsettia Die
Plenty of Distress Ink Pads
I don`t normally do things like this but love seeing what other do
I really enjoyed this project and will be doing similar once I get a few Canvases.  Obviously does not have to be a Canvas.  I feel being the canvas you can keep it and bring it year after year

That`s it from me.  Off to bring in the washing and get it ironed
Thank yo so much for your visit I really appreciate you taking time to do that
Till next time
Hugs

  29. Beautiful Patricia, Love it all. You and Hazel are brave doing these workshops, don't think I could stand in front of an audience and talk lol! A good way of meeting people though and making new friends.

    Enjoy your day.
