The essence of the seasons

Good morning,
We have sunshine, here this morning, yesterday it was so cold and heavy hail showers.
At our weekly crafty session we used products and inspiration from Inkylicious to create some seasonal themed cards.
I particularly like the "essence of the seasons" sentiment, really lovely stamp sets and so useful.
The morning was complete with coffee and another delicious cake from Toby, the young chef in training, strawberry and coconut cake. I'm not a coconut fan but this won me over!
Toby is making a chocolate orange cake for our next monthly workshop, we are so spoilt with his baking creations.
All in all another happy couple of hours crafting chatting, coffee and cake, pretty perfect.
As always the ladies did me proud with their makes, really lovely don't you think...
Have a good day and thanks so much for visiting...xKx

Crafting and cream tea

Thank you for stopping by today.
Just popping in with a quick blog post before I start the crafty jobs on my list today.
We had a lovely time yesterday at craft class making cards using a Faux tile technique.
The photo's aren't great as I left my IPad behind so my phone had to do the job instead, it didn't spoil the fun though as the pictures captured.
My daughter joined us and enjoyed meeting another group of my crafty ladies.
She has a week off this week before heading off on her travels for a month and then starting her new job, we're cramming a lot in this week before she goes.
I've promised the ladies I'll keep them updated with her news and thank them for their words of advice, encouragement and well wishes.
Anyhow we had another lovely session which again went all too quickly.
As always the ladies produced some wonderful results.
In the afternoon we went out for afternoon tea with my neighbour and her friend for a long overdue catch up!
The tea was wonderful and we felt full to bursting once finished!
Such a lovely day and the weather to match.
Hope you have a good day today,
Crafty hugs xKx

Home Decor Decoupage

Morning crafty friends,
My poor neglected blog!
It's taken a back seat while I've been busy elsewhere in my crafty world but it will be returning again really soon.
Hope you've all been well and enjoying your crafting if you've been able to.
I've been busy with crafty classes, workshops, orders and sorting out some tutorials to blog for you.
I look forward to sharing these.
In the meantime here's some samples for a couple of classes that I'm holding.
Home decor with decoupage, MDF and glass, a mix of ornamental and functional items.
I've done my samples using one matching theme.
Really looking forward to these classes.
Thanks so much for looking today, look forward to catching up with blogging again soon.
Love and crafty hugs xKx
