First, on 24th March I'm going to be one of the 'very experienced crafters and tutors' at the Big Event run and hosted by Janet Caudrelier of Japonica, in Exmouth. Here's the rest of her blurb:
'It includes three card making workshops, home made lunch, refreshments, 10% off voucher to use in Japonica, and lots of fun and friendship as you craft together. This season's workshops will include stamping and using inks with many techniques. The day costs £42 and is great value - it would make a great Mother's Day Gift! If you need any more info or would like to book your place, please call the shop - Japonica, Exmouth, on 01395 271739, or email firstname.lastname@example.org'.
|This is actually for a Workshop at Kraft Crazy this week, but I've done a very similar one for Janet!|
The third 'experienced crafter and tutor in this scenario will be Francoise Read. It's worth the fee just to meet her and get an injection of her warm good humoured and gentle skills. She is a stamp designer - for Woodware, and Stampendous...and wears her skills so modestly. I should learn from her. I could. If i had any skills that were worth touting. To be honest, the skill I bring as a 'tutor' is probably bossy good humour...and I hope, making everyone leave with a finished something....because I hate going home with UFOs. They NEVER get finished!
And then, me and Scrap Lady Ally are doing a Card Marathon on April 12th. Yep, a Marathon. We supply samples, kits and tools to make 20 or so different cards, different themes, styles and sizes. You make cards, we feed you with cakes and lunch made by Lunch Lady Jan herself, and then you make more cards. It's gruelling. It's to be held in a Church Hall in Amesbury and booking is essential, the kit numbers and catering mean that we need numbers in advance! There is a separate page to view the flyer and booking form, a clickaway at the top of my blog, or you can visit www.2scrapladies.blogspot.co.uk just as soon as it's been updated. Please give us a chance, it's all a bit erm, argh!
I think that's it. For now. Really, this 'all about me' way of living is becoming a bit exhausting. And, to finish where I started....I'd like to HOPE and THINK that my desk will betray signs of preparation for these events. If you don't notice, would you please prod my conscience?
