Wow only six sleeps! How exciting!
I have been making some samplers of covers with a few techniques and destruction sheets - but I cannnot show you as they are for the day and I don't want to spoil it for the Hugbinders in attendance.  I have done 7 sample covers - I was aiming for 10 but 2 ended up as bin fodder and one just didn't get made, it ran away in the night! lol

Hugbinders - don't forget if you have any particular stamps you want to use to bring them with you, if you are as forgetful as I am then I why am I reminding you?!  I believe that Angel policy is not applicable here as you are using them in unique works and not mass production copying.

Can't wait for Hugbinders day and to see the book covers that the Hugbinders make, six sleeps... if I can sleep for excitement!

23 days to go and Prepping

Time is flying past, I cant believe its only 23 days to go... well actually in 23 days we will now be finishing up and  washing our hands in readiness for our well deserved glass of wine and plate of fish and chips, so really its only 22 days to go!

Today has been spent with Katherine and Beryl prepping some stuff for the big day... we had alot of fun today with just the three of us, so that fun has got to be multiplied several times over when the whole workshop are together!

You can tell from the photos that we had alot of inky fun trying out a few techniques  .... this was after the main job of cutting, punching and rounding 100 covers

Beryl's space after an hour

But she has messy hands!!

Katherine's space after 10 mins

First of all Sparkles herself has made this beautiful wreath for the raffle

Her husband kindly drove her across town to drop it off today - a big lovely box full of lovely stash - Thank you Carol!

and then, off I go to pick DS up from school and another friend Mags -who has helped us in so many ways already_ gave me a HUGE box full of stuff, some of which we will be putting on Ebay and selling in aid of Macmillan, so you can all have a fair crack of the whip!
