Getting ready for Christmas

I am so thrilled to have been asked to be CraftyCarolines First Guest Blogger. what a wonderful opportunity and one i wasn't about to turn down !! A fantastic Team leader !!

I haven't blogged in a few weeks as I have been really busy with a new adventure of being a adult Army Cadet Instructor. My hats of to all those that have gone through this process although I am enjoying it my brain hasn't worked so hard in years haha.

I have still been running my regular craft groups on Thursday's and Saturday's as my love of Craft still comes first. There is nothing like a hour or two of crafting to lift your spirits

Today's project is a Advent Calendar we have been making at my Saturday classes they take a fair few hours but on Saturdays we make more involved projects over a few weeks but it was all worth and everyone was thrilled with the result.
My classes on a Thursday are more relaxed, we make a simple card and enjoy a chat while having a cuppa.  My classes are held at my home in Holbeach, Lincolnshire. If your Local I would love for you to join us.

 These Advent calender's showcase our wonderful Designer series paper that's available this year.

One of these has been made as a gift for my grandchildren as its perfect to put a couple or more chocolates in, one is for my growing teenage boys that still like a chocolate treat daily, who wouldn't and the last is a gift. I know I will have some friends request one for their children.
