Halloween Pumpkins and Treat Holders

Hi everyone!

It has been a busy old weekend, and here I am sat on a Sunday evening catching my tail and getting up to date before another brand new sparkly week starts!

Last week I was on Shortbread making mode, I baked a lot all in aid of a fabulous cause, Macmillan Cancer Care.    My friend at work was holding a fundraising coffee morning from 10am till 12pm on Saturday, so I popped along and had tea and cakes with everyone.. what a great morning it was too, i got to catch up with many friends!

After the coffee morning I headed over to Meadowbank Stadium in Edinburgh where the Ross Papercraft Show was taking place from 10 till 3pm … it was a great afternoon, I got to stock up on cardstock, bought sequins, and also managed to buy a stamp and embossing folder set I had been after for a looong time from Stampers Grove, had no idea they even had it 😉

I also picked up the latest Workshop timetable … going to try and get along to some of Yvonne’s classes when I do not have a demo on for Indigoblu..  Guess what too ??

I will also be doing a few workshops for Stampers Grove in October – December !! how exciting is that!    The first workshop is on 18th October 2014 from 11am to 1pm (see below for a sneek peek)  😀 I can hardly wait, Iam all prepared and ready for it already lol … I got super organised last night and this morning

Halloween 1

 

Well, that’s my news for this weekend, I hope you can pop along for one of the workshops, they sure are a lot of fun and everyone is very welcoming and friendly, they certainly made me feel very welcome when I booked my very first workshop.

As always, thank you so much for popping round.

I will see you at 10am on Tuesday morning with a new project on the Indigoblu blog

this has been a great little project, as it has enabled me to use up brads that i bought ages ago and never used, the good thing is, the brads that hold the pumpkin together don’t need to match because you don’t see them!

also,  it enabled me to start using up the huge canister of prima flowers i have been hoarding!

Plus.. this project has given me an idea .. remember the frosted leaves I made last night?  … I think they would be perfect on a pumpkin..

off to have a spot of breakfast, then I’m heading back up to my shed 🙂

Thanks for popping round
