A Brilliant Day!

Hello friends

Today I'm talking about my brilliant day in Buckinghamshire on Saturday.
I visited A Maze of Memories and was blown away by so many crafters who
turned up for the demo in the morning, apparently at one point over 40!
That's a lot crowding around my demo table.
I did my usual amount of nattering...loads!
Everyone looks enrapt here...I wonder what I was saying...!?
Along with my nattering there was tea, yummy cake and the lovely Christina who
owns the store also provided lunch for Mum and I...thank you so much.

The store has a large class area and also a well stocked shop.
In the afternoon I stayed on to teach a class for 16 crafters, we squeezed in three
projects, I think I worked everyone fairly hard but they all said how much they enjoyed it!
Here is everyone busily crafting and Mum at the back helping out.
And here's me!
A lot of the dies were popular but this one really sparked some interest..
Cozy Cottage.
It may have something to do with just up the road from the shop is 
the lovely village of Long Crendon and it's definitely chocolate box -
lots of thatched cottages just like the die!

A lot of scrapbooking goes on in a A Maze of Memories so I was asked to
take along some of my scrapbook layouts, pleased to say I took quite a few
featuring Bella!  Oh and some of the boys too... :)

Be sure to check out Christina's blog here - there are a lot more photos of the day.

Charity Kit update - all completely sold out, a lucky customer grabbed the last
one off the website this morning.
THANK YOU so much everyone, I'm already planning next month's!

Take care friends.

Good morning Christine
Sounds like you had a very busy day on Saturday. The shop looks amazing - a real Alladins cave. And a very pretty village too, how apt was your card!

Morning Christine, Fabulous piccies of your day, and that thatched cottage is ideal for a New Home card, and I have always wanted to live in a thatched cottage, although I don't think my dream will ever be realised haha.
So glad your charity kits have sold well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine
Lovely pics of Saturday. Wish we'd seen your demos in the morning. It was lovely to meet your Mum as well. Hope that they invite you back again. Might try to do all day if they do.
