It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Half way through October means it's nearly Christmas, right?! Well, it's time to make your Christmas goodies anyway. On Saturday 17th October I'll be holding an all-day Christmas workshop. The day will include lots of mini tutorials and you'll be able to pick and choose which ones you'd like to do. These pics are of a Christmas banner:

And a close-up of the detail:

We'll also be making some gift bags like this:

And some really quick and easy gift bags like this:

There'll also be some ideas for cards for anyone who wants to have a go and it will be my mission to get some of you painting a mini canvas!
There'll be extra kits to but on the day if you feel like doing more when you get home.......
