Seems that I ...

... go days with nothing much to post about then several things come along at once. Like this past weekend. Apart from visiting the littlies yesterday I had a lovely day on Saturday with 20 old, and new, friends. Some of the 'old' friends I was meeting for the first time as they were cyber friends, met via the imag-e-nation forum some years ago. We came from all over the southern region with most travelling an hour or more to get there. They came from the outer reaches of Kent (around 100 miles away), from deepest Buckinghamshire (around 80 miles), the depths of Essex (around 70 miles) and from various places along the south coast (around 50 miles away) and then there was Toni! The southern ladies ... and Toni ... certainly put themselves out to attend meets!

The day was beautifully arranged by Greta whose son laid on a buffet spread that really spoilt us. There was an huge selection of sandwich and other snacks and some excellent homemade cakes - superb! Helen arranged a for sale/swap/giveaway table for anyone to take advantage of and some did so, very successfully.

Toni - mad as they come and our 'local' Stampin' Up demonstrator (soooo NOT!) - joined us but, to do so, she had endured a 4 hour train journey on Friday to Greta's. Fortunately she had a better trip home but it's still a long way to come for one day, on public transport!. Toni provided some very interesting 'make and takes' and there was a 'show and tell' provided by moi! Helen demonstrated some digi-scrapbooking for those that wanted and a free draw added to the excitement. There were a lot of crafty tips exchanged, a few bits made and even more chatting ... a good day was had by all!

Looking forward to the next one now ..... *big grin*!

Thanks for dropping by .....
