Another glorious day here in sunny Wiltshire yesterday, it has been so lovely to sit and eat lunch with the sun warming your face. Paul managed to finish the lawns, including all of the rough areas under the trees and around the vegetable patch, I think that we really need to get a petrol strimmer to tackle these areas, these are the things that Matt usually buys for Paul for his birthday, he has bought some really useful gifts over the years.
Karen has shared the card that she has made for Captain Tom Moore's 100th Birthday, I love the design that Karen has gone for, cleverly using the design as the background for a 'Shaker' card, which makes it even more special.
I will add Karen's description below:
I made this card for Captain Tom Moore this afternoon
It’s a shaker card with gold and silver stars
The background is from Serif
and a mixture of Sue Wilson and Tonic dies''
Thank you so much Karen for sharing your inspirational design for Captain Tom's card, I am sure that he will love the shaker card. XXX
Today I am going to prepare the things I need for the 'Accordian Fold Notebook' Worksop that I am taking part in on Saturday and Sunday morning. Tracy Evans from 'Aall & Create' is hosting the Workshop, I did one a couple of weeks ago and it was great fun, I will share my project on Saturday's Blog. The workshop is run as a Facebook Live session, which makes it fun as everyone interacts by messaging in, there were some hilarious conversations and even the ladies husbands were getting involved trying to 'out do' each other by bringing cups of tea and Bacon sandwhich etc. I didn't craft along with the actual class 'live', Tracy leaves the workshop up for you to follow whenever you like, so I did mine on the Monday after, that way I could skip all the chat and craft at my own pace, although I will say that Tracy crafts at a pace that is super easy to follow and will stop and help anyone that is struggling with a particular problem, Tracy's goal is for you to enjoy the Workshop the same as if you were all sat in a room together, I think it worked.
We were discussing if this would be a way forward as craft workshops go as it makes them more accessible for everyone, the cost is less as there is no venue to pay for, all you are paying is the £10 to Tracy for the tuition, which I think is a bargain, the last one took just over two hours on Saturday and the same on Sunday morning, leaving the rest of the day free. So there is no travel expense or anything and you can take part what ever your ability
