A crafty weekend away

Last weekend I was invited to teach 2 workshops at
Facebook - BellaCrafts
Website -  BellaCrafts  in Hampshire for their
Autumn Festival weekend.

Visiting the girls at their wonderful craft barn has been something I've wanted to do since meeting them a couple of years ago and to be invited to teach was a real honour.
They run a whole array of classes, activities and parties for all ages, it's a wonderful atmosphere and everyone made me feel so welcome.
I always love to meet new crafters and share my passion for craft.
I was able to combine the weekend with meeting up with some best friends too, arriving early on Friday I had lunch at the garden centre with a friend who lives locally.
We were then able to mooch around BellaCrafts, have tea and cake in the afternoon and unload my stuff ready for Sat.
I was booked in to a lovely hotel for the evening so once leaving I got settled there and had a lovely meal and a glass of Rose, thinking to myself how very fortunate I am to be doing a job I love that I have created from a lifetime passion of crafting.

After a relaxing evening and a nice breakfast I was all prepared for the crafty day ahead on Saturday.
Time to join in some of the make and takes on arrival and a relaxing coffee before setting up for my first class which was this Christmas House.
I taught the techniques for decorating the house and making and assembling the elements that filled it and completed the scene.

Then it was into the second class which was this mixed media MDF heart, showing various techniques to achieve texture and layers, with colour and gilding.

 I thoroughly enjoyed teaching the ladies who attended the classes and meeting everyone.
I was also joined by best friends Angela and Selina who also have their own craft businesses and after we packed up on Saturday it was back to Angela's for a lovely takeaway and a bottle of fizz to celebrate all the wonderful things we are experiencing with our work and achievements.
We had so much to talk about!
I stayed at Angela's on Saturday and after going out for coffee with her it was time to make my way home.
A truly wonderful weekend and lots of happy memories, thank you all
Love and crafty hugs xXx
