Crafty Christmas time and local workshops (Cheshire/Manchester area)

Hi crafters,

Sorry I have not been on for sooooo long again. Life has got in the way in the last few months, but here I am raring to go again. So today’s agenda is to catch you all up with my crafty play and news.

Firstly though, I want to let you all know about some fantastic Stampin’ Up workshops I will be going to, on the run up to Christmas (I’ll post my finished pieces, as I when I do each workshop).

All the workshops will be run by a lovely lady called Shirley in the Cheshire/Manchester area. I’ve already picked out the ones I am going to go to, and I’m really looking forward to it as workshops are very few and far between, where I live.

Workshops list:

Any home workshops (Stampin’ Up! parties) booked at the event will recieve a FREE gift in addition to all the other goodies & benefits normally received. Don’t think you know enough people to have a party? Don’t think you have the room for a party? I have the solutions – just ask me!!
