Smashing Saturday

Yesterday was THE day that I hired a hall, invited lots and lots of people and with a lot of help from friends, held my first demo day. It was smashing. So many people turned up. There was a make and take, retired products for sale, lots of tea, coffee and cake and so many cards, boxes, handmade items for everyone to look at, new punches to try, a raffle, treasure hunt and everyone went into a free prize draw.

A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone who helped to make this go so smoothly, I really couldn't have done it without you. Not just the day but all the preperation as well, ohh just wait till I show you all the fantastic cards and other items that everyone made for the display tables

Over 30 people came to look at all the cards, boxes, creations that everyone had made for the day. The atmosphere was great even if it was a tad hot. You can never tell with church halls if its going to be too hot or cold, there really isn't an inbetween. We had a lovely little cafe area and it was constantly busy so everyone caught up with each other, learnt the lastest news and gossip (which I just cant repeat). All in all it was wonderful.

Here are a few photos of the event

So many people asked, when I shall be holding another one, well the answer is March, if I can wait that long.

The raffle was drawn at the end of the last make and take and the winning number is ...drum roll please

If you have this raffle ticket, please let me know so that I can get your prize to you and Congratulations. Hazel won the door prize and I shall be getting this over to you this week. The Treasure Hunt entries are due to be in by Tuesday so I shall annouce the winner on Wednesday.Lots of pictures over the next few days of all the stunning display items so please, pop back and have a look.

Today is a day for putting everything away. Hope you manage to stay dry and have a great day x
