What happened?

I've no idea why I haven't posted for the last 10 days, I think I just forgot. I had a day off work on Wednesday to spend crafting with my lovely crafting buddies Caroline and Lesley and of course my best friend Theresa came along for the company and cake. Theresa is just starting to get her momentum with crafting, it is lovely to see the pure joy when she makes something with us. I'm not sure who enjoys it more us watching her or her making something lovely. It was a great day of catching up on all things Scrapstars, Stampin Up and general crafting news. We usually take it in turns to show and tell things that we have made since our last catch up and then usually we have seen something that one of us has made and we show the others how to make it. A bit of a mini retreat.
Caroline and Lesley are Stampin Up demonstrators and Caroline has been wanting to make the ornament on the front of the catalogue, so this is what we started with, and here's mine
I love how it turned out and it is currently hanging in my craft room where I can look at it while I'm crafting. 
We then had a go at making a mini book and showed everybody how to put that together. I'm trying out several ideas for mini books for one of the future classes that I'll be teaching at the Craft Box, so it was good to test run and see how people will cope with the cutting and assembling. I can adjust things to make sure it all goes well on the day.
Today is a crafting day for me, I have no distractions so I am hoping to catch up with a lot of my half finished projects and cards.
