Back down to earth

From the most fabulous weekend!!!
From Friday to Monday myself and 9 ladies from within my team stayed at a beautiful cottage near Stow on the Wold.
This was a mini convention type event for those who couldnt attend the convention in November and also a general excuse for us to get together, craft and share ideas!
I will warn you there are lots of photos on this post so sorry in advance!!!
Here is a photo of the landing, you can see the room signs I made for the girls
Up close!
My favourite bedroom, I love how this is decorated! This was Siobhan and Niki's room! I left them all little pillow gifts on their beds for when they arrived!

Another gorgeous room!

The fab lounge, Very Vanilla, Creamy Caramel and CLose to Cocoa!!!!

And the room we spent the most time in, eating and crafting!!!

On Saturday we had a shoebox swap which lasted most of the day with breaks for lunch and cakes etc.... It was fab to just craft without interruptions and to make cards that were already planned out for you! I will show the cards another day!

On Saturday night some of us who are Strictly fans dressed up in our most glamorous outfits to settle down and watch our program!!! We had fun, thats all I will say!!

Me, Sarah and Niki

The girls suprised me with some gorgeous flowers (they smell beautiful by the way) and some chocs as a thank you for organising the weekend!

I want to thank all the girls for coming and for making it such a special time. Heres to the next one!!!!
So if you fancy becoming part of a team who have as much fun and are a tiny bit crazy but love our crafting then mail me at

Bye for now
