Alarming Self Publicity

Well, actually, probably just being a blogger puts me in the 'sef publicity' category, but today, there's a genuine reason instead of just the erm, 'normal' middle aged woman's attention seeking.
A handful of people have asked about my crafty work over the summer. Well, it's fortnightly at Kraft Crazy, home of Shopkeeper Gal in historic Amesbury, Wiltshire. The new workshop schedule was published on Wednesday.  It was a day I spent at a reunion, reminiscing, so it's a very timely way to jolt me into looking forward again!

This was an offering at the Card Marathon; it went down well enough to serve as workshop inspiration!
Starting from next Thursday, 1st May (already!) me and the Gal are conducting alternately weekly workshops.  Morning and evening on Thursdays.  I've themed my workshop offerings, makes me focus a little better.  I think. There will be dots and circles, grunge (in colour), birds, and doilies, to name a few.  


and the inspiration for another workshop....thanks to Baker Ross!
So if you're one of the handful, and planning to pass historic Stonehenge and maybe pop into Amesbury for a cuppa....perhaps come to a workshop first and then visit the stones!
The shop is at Unit 3, Stonehenge Walk, Amesbury SP4 7DB.  Bookings on 01980 625584

Self promote away, dear friend. I have NO idea how you do it all. Of course, I bet you have a faster internet connection than I (grin).

Oh, how I'd love to hop the pond to share a cuppa and some creative play! Not to mention a visit to stonehenge. :)

Well, I don't think I'll be in your neck of the woods anytime soon, but I do love your card. With two young and very feminine daughters, I'm always looking for inspirational ideas. Good luck with the workshops!

Fabulous card, I can see why you are able to do it as a session on its own. Lovely colour too
