The one negative thing to come out of my now working Saturdays instead of Sundays is that it will now be almost impossible for me to get to join my scrappy friends at various crops!
We even sat down to a full Christmas lunch…
…there were two class
projects & two challenge
layouts with random
prizes. Later on there
was a raffle & afternoon
tea with amazing sweet
It was lovely to put faces to names I’d seen & heard from other scrappy friends, both IRL & in Blog Land. It really was a wonderful day & I felt sad that I’d probably not be able to get there again!
So, imagine how pleased I was that I was given Saturday January 12th as a lieu day for working New Years Day…& that just happened to coincide with the January crop date!!
There was a bit of doubt as to whether I’d feel well enough to go, but I did & I’m so glad I did!!
…I got to sell (& buy!) a
few items at the ‘Bring &
Buy’ table…pick up a few
bits at the ‘Freecycle’
…AND I got to meet the lovely Deb for the first time & her partner in crime Den, who I have met twice before! We’ve visited each others blogs for such a long time & I think it’s fabulous how we all have so much in common & yet without scrapbooking & Blogging, our paths may never have crossed!
”But…” I hear you ask…“did you actually get any scrapping done during this social event?”…& the answer is yes!! Ann had created two lovely class layouts for us & here’s what I did with mine…
The first was a design by (the other) Karen…
…& the second what I did with the first kit challenge…
I still have the class mini book & the second challenge LO to complete!!
Well, that’s me for today…outside my window the snow is falling thick & fast! I have a dental appointment before I pick up the boys this afternoon so I hope the roads remain passable!! After that it can do what it wants…within reason!!
Thanks for stopping by…stay safe & warm…& come back soon!!
