Retired List and Bloomin Buds Craft Weekend.....


Morning All,
Lots of Bargains to be had on the Retired List......Available only while stocks last.
You can either Email me, Phone me, or SHOP ONLINE with me.
If you collect from me then shipping is FREE.
March was a very busy month for Crafting.  Two Extravaganza's and a Bloomin Buds Craft Weekend.
Our Bloomin' Buds Craft Weekend was held here.
Tincleton in Dorchester.  I hired two cottages for 13 of Bloomin' Buds to craft from Friday to Monday!  This was Tincleton Lodge.

After a lot of prepwork in February and March, it just came down to the packing.  I spent all of Thursday Food Shopping!  My car was full to the brim.  This is my lounge floor before I packed the car.

This was one of the lounge's.

We were so lucky with the space, I worried for ages wondering how we were all going to have enough room to craft.  I took three of my tables with me.
We ended up with two tables in the dining area which was huge.
These are the two tables before the ladies arrived.  Thanks Debi and Kathey for letting me set them up.  The flowers are the kit in the Spring Catalogue available while stocks last.  Very Pretty.

The table covers are from Home Bargains.

I made all these for each Bloomin' Bud.  The folder held three projects for the ladies to complete.
The gift bag held the Happy Hooray stamp set, In Colour paper, In Colour Bakers Twine and some Pretty Tissues.
The Large Kraft Notebooks which were decorated with everyones initials.
The card uses the Project Life stamp set Hello Life.

The Clear bucket held lots of snacks.  The top has the lovely starburst framelits on the top which are on the Retired List!  Love them.

These are the three projects the Ladies made while I put the tea on.

The hall area was brilliant space.

This was one of the kitchens.

The other cottage was attached to the lodge called Rose Cottage.
I made these heart wooden name labels to show who was in each room.
The something lacy stamp set was used in sahara sand.
The bedrooms were all gorgeous.

I made a little tin for each bed full with a smelly soap and bathroom petals.

Lovely rooms.

Each of us designed a shoe box of three cards and one scrapbook page.
So in total we all made 39 cards and 13 scrapbook layouts.
We started at 5 on the Friday evening and finished about 8pm on the Sunday, ready for the massive clear up job!  It was full on but fabulous.

On Sunday we popped to the local pub in Moreton for a Carvery Lunch and Puddings!
Then we came back to make a Kit I had purchased for everyone. 
They had the choice of four kits all from the Spring Catalogue.

Pom Poms were fun to make.
