With all the upheaval going on my craft stuff was packed away for several months and I have only just settled into my new craft room. It is considerably smaller to my last craft space. Downsizing has been interesting ...... and difficult. We crafters don't like to part with anything that may or may not be useful. I am now enjoying crafting again.
Last weekend my friend Linda and I went down to Skipton to the Beamsley craft retreat. We have been going for 4 years now and love it. I actually managed to make 39 Christmas cards. A great start to my Christmas preparations. Here are a few of them.
I bought a new Penny Black stamp with the berries. I really enjoyed playing with this.
This was another new Penny Black stamp with lots of potential. I wanted to try it in lots of colours. These are my favourites.
I loved the autumn colours of this one. This stamp will be useful for a variety of occasions
These next two are variations of designs I have done before. But they are stamps I love and they come out every year.
The next two are very similar in style. Simple but effective:
And of course my favourite Penny Black prancing deer. I just love that stamp.
We had a great weekend in Yorkshire. Laughing, eating and crafting ... the perfect tonic after a very busy year.
