Good Morning Blog Friends!
Well, wasn't the closing ceremony for the Paralympics fab last night? I just loved all the Steampunk...what an amazing conception and for someone like me who is just fascinated by Steampunk, I was captivated!
I was pretty worn out last night though,after a whole day of crafting workshops courtesy of Woodware. I attended a workshop day for retailers, having been invited along by my friend Amy, who owns our local craft & gift shop and with whom I teach our workshops.
The event was taking place in Thame, Oxfordshire, about a 2 hour drive from us, so Amy picked me up at 7am to be there for 9am. There were about sixty people there and we were divided into groups..people teaching the workshops included Francoise ?... From Dreamweavers, Stampendous, Fran from Frantage and of course Woodware.
It was a very intense day, consisting of 3 classes before lunch and 3 afterwards, finishing at 5:30pm. I think I was the only person there who didn't own or work in a shop, but it was really nice to meet lots of people who were so passionate about crafts and do workshops from all over the Country. So thanks to Amy for giving me the chance to attend.
Here are a couple of the projects, I'll explain them during the week....unfortunately because the groups were quite large, we didn't get to finish many of the cards we started, or we just worked on techniques, but when I get time this week I'll finish them off and share them with you.
It was a very intense day of six classes, learning some new techniques and using some products I'd never tried before.

I'll be back later to catch up on your blogs from yesterday and today, happy Monday everyone!
