Well it doesn't seem like two years, but it has been! Yes, two years ago this month Out of the Blue Craft Group was launched and I joined Amy to deliver these workshops. We started off with the group meeting once a month, but it wasn't long before we had a 'waiting' list, so we decided to repeat the class a second time during the month. We have two different groups of lovely crafters coming along - some have been with us since the beginning, some have joined along the way and we still have new people joining. From those who have come along, good friendships have been made amongst them too, which is fabulous.
I have loved joining Amy to deliver these workshops and long may we continue! Last night, in the first of our two celebration meetings, Amy provided some prizes for a raffle and instead of a card, we decided to make chocolate bar wrappers, so that each member would take away a bar of chocolate!
These wrappers are such fun to make: I first saw one on Christine Emberson's blog over a year ago (probably two) and have been making them since for Christmas & Easter 'table' gifts etc. They are fun and make a simple chocolate bar very special..they can also be used as wrapping for other items, such as books, DVDs etc.
In preparation I made a lot...I got carried away! However it has been such a busy week that as yet I haven't photographed them properly, so I will share mine over the coming week...these are the fabulous creations the ladies on my group made last night..every one of them different and delightful!
Don't forget that if you live in the Bristol area (or know a Crafter who does), Julia Watts will be demoing for a full day in Chipping Sodbury on Saturday 7th June. Tickets for the demos are just £5 and sessions are available throughout the day. For contact details see the button featuring Julia on my sidebar.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fab Friday!
Love and Hugs,
