Craftaganza 2012

Well what a wonderful time was had by all at the Crafters Companion Craftagnaza. For those who dont know what its all about its a 3 day event organised by Crafters Companion and you have daily workshops with various wonderfully talented people and this year 1st we had the very talented Sarah Millsop from Beaders Companion who had us all making loops that eventually formed a necklace. Next we had the super talented Sheena Douglass who had us all messy with the new Luminarte products. This was followed by
the wonderful Leann Chivers who did a colouring workshop with the  Spectrum Noir pen system. That was just day 1!!!

Day 2 comprised of a workshop with the wonderful, super talented Sara Davies who had us using the Ultimate Pro and scoring away to eventually make a stationary set. Next was the lovely Louisa who had us very messy last year so she had toned it down a bit for this year but we still got covered in distress ink whilst making a christmas wreath. To end day 2 we had the super excited Claire Hamer who's energy amazes me. She let us have a play with the new Ebosser to create a lovely wall hanging. Numerous people in the room then tried to smuggle out the Ebossers!!! That evening we had some wonderful entertainment with the lovely Nigel May from Create and Craft.tv.

Workshop with Nigel May

Day 3 is a bit of  a crafting bootcamp and to start it was Sarah and she had everyone making Shamballa bracelets which was great fun. 2nd was the lovely Nigel May who gave us a sneaky peek of his new CD due for release hopefully in January. We were all supposed to make a card but spent most of the time chatting to Nigel! 3rd was Leanne again and this time she had us colouring away towards our accreditation as spectrum noir experts....I have  along way to go!. After a lovely lunch we had Sara who had us making a wonderful peek a boo card....so easy yet so effective.5th was Louisa who had us making a  cone shaped christmas tree out of paper...there was plenty of sticky fingers in the room by the end of the session. Last but not least was the lovely Claire again and she had us playing with the Ebosser again to make a lovely cute Christmas card. 

And that was it another Craftaganza over....Met lots of wonderful people and friends  and cant wait until next year.!!!
