Getting ready..........

We are 'girding our loins  in readiness for the big 1st birthday celebration weekend at the shop which starts on Thursday, we have Andy Skinner there on friday and I plan to join his workshop - hoping the plan works, anyway taking it easy at the moment with just our make and takes to get ready for thursday - even Roy is doing one - i'll make a crafter of him yet, that's if I can drag him away from his Bowls.
The pic today is of a mini journal page i've just finished - really enjoying this journaling once I can sort out what to do!!!!

In the Frame.........

I was given this Kaiserkraft frame to decorate for a raffle prize ---  Help!!!--- I thought about it and went to my favourite Graphic 45 papers 'Ladies Diary (again) and this is the result, it is a big area to work on but hopefully this will do.

A sunny day................... and celebrations

Well we've certainly had a sunny day here so it seems fitting to share this journal page with you..........
It's hard to believe that in two weeks it's the first birthday of Barjanb Crafts, the shop has done well over the year and stocks a great selection, something for everyone I think, we will be celebrating with a make and take day and three days of workshops with - to name just two  - Andy Skinner, Clare Rowlands (molly bloom) . I'm in the process of making a raffle prize for the weekend so watch this space and some tree decs for our tree in the Tree Fest at the Baptist church - plus other things too numerous to mention!! anyway we are certainly in for a busy time ahead.

New Camera last

I treated myself to a basic digi camera yesterday so I could  photograph my project pics - strange no instructions tho !! but they were there, on a cd for me to print off - all 49 pages, needless to say I've just printed the ones I think i'll need. This is the first pic from the camera taken before I found the instructions and with the flash on unfortunately, not so bad but hopefully i'll get better.

With a little help from my friend........

We've just had a few days caravanning in Norfolk with Jan and her hubby and of course jan and I spent the evenings crafting, for sometime I've wanted to do some Art Journaling and this was just the chance to get a masterclass from Jan - the picture  is my first journal page done with a little help..............
