Christmas Craft Retreat Day Fun!

On Saturday I held an all day Christmas Craft Retreat Day!  

It was a full day of crafting, coffee, tea, cake, lunch, cake and did I say cake?

Each of the ladies received enough goodies in their kit bags to make four of each of five designs of Christmas card. with loads left over. So they could if they wished take home 20 Christmas handmade cards all ready to send for Christmas.

My fabulous team member Linda popped in for a while and helped out! Thank you Linda . It was lovely to see you!

It was a lovely day, full of laughter, crafting and lots of fun. We had experienced crafters of many years through to absolutely brand new stampers. It was absolutely heart warming to see the all the ladies helping each other along.

 Lots of stamping

and die cutting

We had a beautiful sponge cake and chocolate dipped flapjacks for elevenses, and for lunch
 soup and warm rolls followed by hot mince pies or Christmas cake - It was Christmas crafting after all!

 No foodie pics this time I'm afraid. I didn't think to take any before we tucked in!

Envelopes were stamped and embossed too. No naked envelopes here!

I did a raffle too. For this limited availability lovely stamp set.

It really was a lovely day and I am so thankful to my ladies that came and made it so special!  As always when you do an event like this you can see what tweaks can be made to make it even more fun and I am already planning the next!

  1. I definitely dream about going to this party place again. The live music at Los Angeles event venues was an added bonus, providing a backdrop for the fun hours spent imbibing, tasting, and chatting up with the breweries and beer distributors.

  2. On the off chance that the proprietor of a craft sbusiness was in an expansive city with numerous potential clients, at that point it would pay for them to exchange on the nearby craft markets. Free SVG Cutting Files
