Craft Room...the opening

Around 11am on Saturday, Em and I had the official opening of the Craft Room. About 20 of our friends (well, the ones interested in craft!) gathered at our place for pink cup-cakes, honey jumbles and other pretty things and watched as I cut a piece of ribbon that we'd strung across the door. Then everyone filed in to see the glory that was - a colourful but organised space. People had actually made gifts! Amazing. Kristin finished off a gorgeous little pillow with an Aunty Cookie transfer on it, Julie made an incredible pin board covered in Blythe images and Liz gave me a bag of scrapping goodness. I was too excited to take photos but yesterday Em and I made some thank you cards - those I have pics of. Everyone picked a fabric bird to take home, too. I also made a couple of rings yesterday and started some stitching, thanks to Wee Wonderfuls sweet Stitchettes.

Birdies waiting for a home.
