Birthdays and Barbara Gray

Well, what a lovely birthday weekend I've had. I think I can say its been one of the best. Friday at work was great fun, then we went out in the evening which was great. I was in work Saturday but my first show was a delight, with the wonderful Anne Pickard decorating cakes. This was followed by 2 hours of crafting with Barbara Gray! That's work. How good is that. Barbara is so brilliant. We used the new splodge mat - which Barbara really "gets" so can use and demo it properly, and it is brilliant. For once my brayering was good - even if I say so myself!! It was the perfect hangover cure :) I've attached a couple of photos of my efforts from Barbara's class.

I want to thank everyone who sent cards in as well - it was really lovely, and I felt really lucky. Thank you.

Hi Leonie - we share our birthdays and yes, I have told you that before! Happy Days we had this year, both of us!

Mine was the best for many a year - it seemed not one person gave me anything I wish they hadn't and I had 4 new craft books AND the Autumn Limited Edition Promarkers ... have you read those colours, Leonie? I ask you Tawny Owl and Grey Squirrel - I love owls and I know you do too. Plus we have resident squirrels here.

Happy 2012-13!
