Christmas in September

Once or twice a month I meet with 3 other women and our instructor Diana to make cards. Ours is the 'granny group' that needs help from the much younger Diana to tie tiny bows etc.  Diana also has seasonal workshops in her home and this past weekend there was 8 of us making Christmas cards and listening to carols.
 Bags for each participant with pre-cut pieces and envelopes.
 Diana's idea board.
One of the card making stations.
Goodies to eat with hot and cold drinks. 
 We each complete 2 cards of each of the 6 designs.
There's always a goody bag for each of us to take home.
I was so busy crafting and having fun I forgot to take a photo of Diana or the rest of the group working away.  This Saturday, I'm hosting a card workshop myself along with afternoon tea.

  10. Good Morning, Judith

    Your group sounds like you have such fun together. I hope the gathering you'll be hostessing turns out to be just as wonderful.

    I've been thinking of trying to create a few Christmas cards.
