A Splendid Time Was Had By All

Hello blog visitors, Kirsten here, I hope you're enjoying your Saturday. 
Tonight's post is all about yesterday's Christmas party classes & there are lots of photos, hope you enjoy.

This is one of the four decorations that decorated the tables, they were made by Lisa's friend, and class member Rosemary. 
They were gorgeous & looked wonderful against the pink tablecloths.

Many ladies in the afternoon class arrived extra early to snap up some bargains from the sale section & to grab the newly arrived goodies.

There were these packs of gorgeous die cut flowers from Craftwork Cards.
The wreath was made with the flowers from the black/grey/cream pack, using the chipboard circles underneath. 
Other lovely items from CWC were die cut birds & birdcages.

Next we had a selection of new embossing folders from Crafts Too. 
 Many of the new products actually sold out yesterday but Lisa have the remainder on the website very soon. 
We had a celebrity join us for the afternoon class & the plan was to ask her to have her photo taken with Lisa but of course we were so busy that we completely forgot. 
 It wasn't until I uploaded these pics that I realised she was in the background of this one. 
Recognise that face? 
It's Kathy Mills of The Glitter Girls, of course. 
It was lovely to meet Kathy & her friend, Sue. 
I think they enjoyed their afternoon with us.

The first project was this lovely calendar. 
The flowers are from the CWC packs above. 
There was also a calendar in pink tones which I don't seem to have a photo of, so if anyone who chose the pink yesterday is reading this, perhaps you'd send me a photo & I'll add it to this post, with a credit to you.  Thanks.


Georgina Sweetenham, who attended the evening class, has kindly given me permission to share her photo of her calendar here.

She also took photos as she went along, so visit her blog at & you'll see the various stages.


Here are a few ladies from the afternoon class working away on their calendars.

After a delicious cold buffet, work began on the second project, a lovely little gift box. 
Each pack was a different colour, so everyone got to choose the one they liked best.

After a quick break to tidy up & replenish the buffet table, it was time to welcome the ladies for the evening class.

During both classes we had raffles & quizzes & many ladies went home with a prize.

Everyone who attends Lisa's classes during the year is given a raffle ticket & a single ticket is picked at the Christmas party to win a hamper containing over £100 of crafting goodies. 
 This is the hamper won last night by Carole Cheeseman.  She was rather pleased. :)

Another photo of one of Rosemary's table decorations, taken this time during the evening. 
It gives you a better idea of the lights & the sparkle.
That's it, I hope you've enjoyed this selection of photos & if they've tempted you to join us next year, contact Lisa to go on the waiting list. 
There's no class in January, so the first class of 2013 will be on February 1st & the afternoon class is  full already, so don't delay there is still a few places left on the evening class. 
 I'm going to post a full list of 2013's class dates as soon as Lisa has confirmed them, here & on Facebook.
On Lisa's behalf, thank you to everyone who attended her classes in 2012, she's looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
I shall be back with another blog post in a day or two.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Take care & happy crafting.
