A Weekend Full of Craft!

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  Mine was very crafty, on Saturday I attended a workshop with my mum at Keep on Crafting in Bury St Edmunds.  The workshop was run by Margaret and included all the materials for the class.  We made these beautiful festive house shadow boxes using Paperartsy and Starlight paints, Craft Creations papers, festive wooden pieces and charms. I'm going to add some lights to mine similar to the set Margaret used on her sample.

We have many more workshops scheduled from November to March, including ones tutored by John Lockwood and Kay Carley of Paperartsy.  Click the link to book a place.

On Sunday I attended Crafting Live at Peterborough, I purchased a few bits and piece for myself and a few Christmas gifts. It was a fun day out and there were lots of "Makes and Takes" available, the ticket price was reasonable, it only cost me £3 as I bought before the event with my Create and Craft discount, parking is free, the one thing that does let it down is the cost of food.  It's a pain to carry food around with you so I choose to buy there, however choice is very limited and it's very expensive. 

Here are my purchases minus the christmas gifts plus a couple freebie packs.

Hi Tracy, sorry I don’t visit very often but the text on your blog is so small that I struggle to read it on my Ipad. Looks like you had a fun weekend. We were there Saturday, only bought a coffee as we had a cooked breakfast. Food is expensive there and the queues were ridiculous. Lovely show though

Love your festive houses and sounds like you had a good time at Crafting Live. I have to agree that the price of food at these events is horrendous.
