I am heading to Carlow for a proper girly weekend with my Sister, we are heading out to a bistro tomorrow evening, then off for a full days treatments in Mount Wolseley hotel in Tullow, with lunch, back to Carlow to meet up with friends for dinner, can't wait, I haven't had a pamper session for years
so I am so looking forward to it,
Should come home all relaxed to finish off the kits for Kilkenny
I am a bit behind, as the Cricut is taking a lot longer than I thought to cut out all the phrases. the cards are lovely and I will share them next week with you.
A huge big thank you to Margaret Driver for organising the event,
and to Yvonne Dunne, Patricia O Leary for all their help during the day, and to the Girls who helped with the setting up and clearing away at the end of the evening,
Thank you to everyone who brought the lovely home baking.
and to everyone for their warm hospitality.
We got lost coming home so didn't get back until 8.15,
Valerie nearly went out the window.she brought us in a complete circle and 45 minuets after leaving the hall, were back there. Maybe the witches from Clonegal Castle, didn't want me to leave.
And to top it all, I had the keys to the hall in my pocket,
So sorry Yvonne, for nearly giving you a heart attach.
Will pop photos up in the morning. I have to Say Clonegal is a very pretty village, and on the way home we went through Bunclody, which I would like to see during the day, as it looked like a beautiful town.
Congratulations to Phil Curran for winning the challenge prise.
Thank you to Marie Fox for bringing her shop along, and for the raffle prise.
for Margaret Drivers craft club members and guests.
I am all ready for tomorrow,
I have one place come free for this class as someone had to cancel this morning, so if you want to come then please email me HERE for more details, Full details are on the workshop page.
I have spent an hour this morning baking apple tarts, as Margaret brought be the biggest basket of Apples on Tuesday. as I have friends calling in later today,
2 of my new props have arrived to use when photographing my cards, but I won't share them until the others come .(hopefully on Monday).
Have heard some bad feedback about the Belfast show, there are very few card making stands, and very few cross stitch, it isn't the same company organising it as in April, most of the girls were disappointed, and it closed early last night at 5.00 even though tickets said 8.00 so hope you won't have a wasted journey.
Will share the cards we make tomorrow on Sunday.
have a great weekend where ever you are, and if you coming on Saturday to Clonegal, see you there.
I have spent quiet a lot of time trying to find stylish stands to display my Cards on, to photograph them, to show here on my blog, I'm not much of a photographer, but managed to find 5 items which might help today, when they arrive, I will share them with you, I think this could be quiet a nice market for someone, who has a wood turner in the family. making small decorative wooden stands to sit the card on.
If you know someone please ask them to get in touch with me, so that I can explain what I mean.
