Out of hundreds of enteries I was chosen as one of eight people to go to Craft Stash for the colouring workshop!! I was soooo excited!
We travelled up the night before and stayed in a hotel a short walk from Craft Stash HQ.
Next morning I made my way down for 10.15 ( i was first to arrive and a bit early but hey ho)

I was taken into what used to be the FB live studio (before they got the new one this year) and there was Claire Rowlands and Janette Lane. Both took time to speak with everyone and made us all feel welcome and at ease.
The workshop got under way ( we did 2 projects on the day) we were given a demo and then encouraged to dive in. We were given one to one tips and support if we needed it and we just generally chatted all morning. Nicky Gilbert editor of my FAVORITE mag Creative stamping popped in to say hi to us all and see how we were getting on, I had a lovely chat with Nicky.

We had a lovely lunch with Clare, Jenette and Hillary in a room with all the up to date magazine's in it, I was first to peruse the shelf I love the craft magazines!
They filmed two fb live's thoughout the day, which as a fb live regular was so exciting to watch and be a part of!!
The afternoon session was slightly different we distressed paper and used punches and glued onto wood before colouring but it was great fun! I learnt so much from Clare and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity! Before we left I spent some time talking to Janette and then Claire Rogers who hosted fb live with Janette came in and I got to chat with both of them. It was so lovely and I was touched they took time out of their day for me!
I had the MOST amazing day, and we were treated so well by the Pratical Publishing team. I can not thank them enough...although my bank balance won't be so happy when I have bought all the supplies I tried on the day and now want!! Xoxo
