A Happy Hels Afternoon. {pic heavy}

Hay Peeps
So I actually made something inky!!!! I know it's a total shock.
It's all due to the fact that yesterday I spent a very lovely afternoon with my buddy Hels Sheridan @ Craftasmic in Taunton where she was teaching a weekend of classes.
Grabbed a quick pic before class started...
Then it was straight to work
 There was some messing about,

and then back to work...

Finally we all ended up with a cute christmas burlap canvas.
This was mine.

As you can see everyone did there own thing and all are slightly different from Hels original. {which I totally forgot to photograph}
Hels even got in a sneeky demo in as we were all finished early.
Then she could relax.
And I got a quick pic of me with James from Craftasmic.
I had a fab time and can't wait for Hels to come back down south for another class in hopefully the not too distant future xo 
If you don't follow me on Facebook i'll just tell you my quick tale of terror before the class.
As you may know i've not long passed my driving test, {and i'm not very confident yet} and I haven't really been doing many long journeys either, I certainly hadn't drove into Taunton where the class was being held. But I was being brave, I checked online and found the park and ride just out of the town was to be open {so I would avoid the chaos of the town as lots of roads were shut off due to it being the christmas lights switch on later in the day} I knew my way so was all set, But alas the journey was not to be smooth, for when I got to said P&R it was closed..... Arrhhhhh my worst fear.. going into town on probably the busiest day of the year, but it had to be done.
I repeated to myself about a million times that I could do it as I was making my way in, only to find near gridlock in most of the car parks and surrounding area, I could feel myself getting more and more flustered but I carried on and after about an hour of hunting round at like 2mph and a couple of car stalls later I finally found a spot to park and my happy day could go on.
I know you may think.. yeah so what, but to me I was so chuffed to have made it there AND on my way home I had to drive in the dark for the first time too.
So all in all it was a very eventful day but a great one.

If you're still reading and didn't nod off thanks for dropping by.
I will have another blog post going up soon as I have a ton of {custom order} christmas cards to share.
Till Then

Ally Pally Weekend

So I just had a fab fun weekend spent at the big stamp and scrapbooking show.
My darling Mummy made this weekend possible and I thank her muchly as I love meeting up with friends old and new xo I just wish everyone didn't live so far apart.. But anywhoooooo.
The first thing was to get this shot

Then the hordes arrived and took over the PA stand..

Leandra and Lin were straight into demoing the fab new paint colours and new stampage..

And Gillian was showing off her samples getting Lin to shop shop shop lol

Helen and Lin B on their phones while Lin and Anna just mill about.
Then I headed over to annoy Sam Poole and the MDF man.

I only managed 1 shot of the #PAtwit meet up we had after the show on Saturday, Not as many as in april but it was still nice to rest the feet and have a little natter with everyone before heading home.

On sunday I managed to snap Don and Val of Snazzy's before things got going

Here is Gilly and Leandra ready for their day of demo's

The calm didn't last long as soon it was busy busy 

The crowds gather

To the point I couldn't get near.. Gilly was in her element!

Me and my pint size pal Alison... {she's on her tiptoes you know lol}

Then I found Lucy and Lin mooching at the PA stand once it had quietened down.

And that was all the pics I got.. I was too busy nattering and watching demos oh and a smidge of shopping
The pics came out a bit fuzzy but i'll share um anyway.. I also got a tray, set of draws and lots of hardware from the MDF man but forgot to take a pic.

So that was my weekend.. How was yours?
