Moovin' & Groovin'

Hi there crafty friends,
What a week it's been for me! The week started with a wonderful get together with some friends and we welcomed a lovely new lady to our crafty circle.  Of course we had much to talk about and didn't end up getting much done but it was such a great day.  Then I decided to carpet my craft room and move things around a bit.  Boy am I glad I did. It feels so much better in there now.  I find myself spending even more time in there than before, if that was even possible. And yes, I do manage to tend to my motherly duties...... Most of the time, haha.
At the end of the week offspring number 2 moved out into his own place. Such an exciting time for everyone.  He's loving having the independence and I'm looking forward to another spare room. Hmmmm, do I need 2 craft rooms???
The weekend was spent finishing up some UFO's and enjoying the soothing and much needed rain.  Tomorrow is Anzac Day so our regular BYOP day won't be on but on Friday will be a technique class.  These technique classes are a great way to learn some new skills or build on the ones that you already have.  This week is 'Moovin & Groovin'.  The cost of the class is $25 all inclusive. Absolutely everything is supplied.  We will be making a double slider card, Action wobble card, and a Slider card.  As with any technique in my class, I believe it's important to learn the technique so that you can apply this new skill to your chosen craft niche.  Wether it be card making or scrap booking, these techniques will work for either.  Tomorrow I will be posting a sneak peak of what we're making. So stay tuned.
I hope you all have a great week and happy crafting.

Hi crafty friends, News flash........I'm addicted.  I'm addicted to paper, cards, scrap booking, mini albums, and mixed media.  And now I'm totally the in love with Stampin' Up's card kits.  I've been on holidays at my mum's place for a couple of days and there was no way I could survive without dipping my inky fingers in the crafty pot.  So I decided to bring the Watercolour Wishes card kit with me and I made the cards last night.  WOW! This was soooo much fun!  Stampin' Up have made it super easy for the beginner to create first class cards in a short period of time.  I decided to do the cards as suggested, however, when I return home I plan to add my own flair to them.  That's the beauty of these card kits.  You can keep them as clean and simple as you like or if you prefer, bling them up a bit.  The choice is yours.  Below are some pictures so that you can see exactly how the cards look as suggested by Stampin' Up.  If you would like any help with the Watercolour  Wishes kit or any other products, please contact me at your convenience.     On another note, our meet and greet has been rescheduled to Saturday the 16th April at 11AM. We will be creating 1 or 2 simple cards, Coffee and of course getting to know one another.  I would love to hear what you would all like to learn and what types of classes I can offer.  Please contact me if you are interested in attending.  I will be returning to the Coffs Makers Market at Coffs Central on Thursday the 21St April.  Please drop by and have a chat.  I would love to see you all. Till next time,  Happy Crafting, 💕Tan
