Where has the week gone ............

Hi everyone,

Is it me, or are the weeks just rolling past a great speed.  It's so near to Christmas now, and I am totally un-organised.  I have yet to put up the tree, or indeed make my cards ........
gosh, thats bad for me ...... but hey I bet I'm not the only one.

So do you need some inspiration for Christmas?


Well here's where we were inspiring people last weekend. 
The Rural Living and Craft Fayre in Kingston St Mary.

This was my stand

This was me demonstrating

And this was the gorgeous card I was asked to make for one of the stand holders, who could not be with us.  

This gorgeous card was made with the Lovely as a Tree Stamp set.  Stamped in Old Olive, and finished off with daubers to create the background.  Everyone at the show signed it and I wish the recipient a speedy recovery.

So need more inspiration?  Want to see more - yes

Then why not come along to Brownes Garden Centre, Wells today and join in the fun at the Artisan Craft Fayre from 1 - 5.  

There is lots to see and do, and I will be demonstrating for some of the time.

Looking forward to seeing you  all there.

Don't forget you can purchase any of the Stampin Up products direct from this blog by clicking this link ......... happy shopping

It's Childsplay ........... so easy the kids enjoy it too .......

Don't you just love it when you hobby can be shared by the whole family.  I do.

I love that everyone in my house can get involved and enjoy aspects of my hobby.  After all it's great to share, and whilst we all like to keep something just for us, it is sometimes nice to have company.

Thats what it's like with Stampin Up.  We love to share everything and try and find new ways to inspire each other, but I love the fact that I can inspire my kids and their friends too.

This weekend I have done a brilliant craft fayre, but there will be more on that in my next post.....

but before I show you the different things I demonstrated and made I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful participants in my Make and Take section.

Not only did the Mums, Dads, and other grown ups get involved, but so did the kids.......

the youngest being 3.  How cool is that ..........

So here are some of them with their gorgeous makes ...........

I would  love thank everyone who joined in the make and takes, it was such fun working with you all.

But special thanks go out to these wonderful kids, who agreed to appear on my blog,
So thanks to Grace, Rosie, Holly, Fern, Lottie, Lucy, Maizie, Ella, Thomas, Sophie, Anna, Molly, Alex and Alfie.
The youngest stamper being 3 and the eldest pictured being 9.
Well done guys, you were awesome.

More about the show on Tuesday.
