Two years of Out Of The Blue Craft Workshops!

Hi bloggers, what a gorgeous day! Fabulous sunshine here today, hope you've been enjoying the same wherever you are.

May is just flying by & before we head into the bank holiday I wanted to share the fact that our craft group at 
Out Of The Blue has been celebrating 2 years of crafty get togethers this month.
Where has that time gone!? 
Our group has grown from 8 to 16 in numbers since we started & we now gather twice a month.
 Carole & I have made some great friends along the way & we all really enjoy the social side as well as the creative side of our meetings.
Long may they continue!. 

Anyway, Carole & I discussed doing something a bit different for our birthday workshops this month. Carole had previously suggested creating chocolate bar wrappers for a workshop project so this seemed like a great idea for this occasion & meant that our ladies would get a little gift to take home with them afterwards too! The chocolate :-) yum!

I have to say my creative mojo had gone off on a little trip somewhere when I was trying to come up with the samples for my half of our group, but after some perseverance I managed to come up with these

Made using Sam Poole's Doodle Butterfly stamp set

Made with Tattered Florals die & Teresa Collins Paper pad

I used Sam Poole's Doodle Flowers stamp set on this one

Everyone really seemed to enjoy making their wrappers at our workshop & as always they all put their own twist to theirs. They all loved the idea that they could make these for lots of occasions for male or female, young or old. Great for table gifts at Christmas too & could also be personalised with place names.

Here's some of the wraps my half of our group made

So, lots of new crafty bits & pieces have been arriving in the shop in the last week or so getting ready for our demo day with Julia Watts on the 7th June.
 Really looking forward to her coming to Chipping Sodbury & tickets have been selling through steadily.
If you fancy a trip to our lovely town to see her please get in touch for more info.
 The shop number is 01454 312355 or visit Out Of The Blue
face book page.

That's it from me for today, thanks for visiting & please pop back again soon.
