Today's demo at the Art and Hobby Shop, Jervis Street, Dublin (and cards)


We've just arrived home now after another fantastic day in the Art and Hobby Shop, Jervis Street, Dublin in the company of these lovely ladies. The forecast was bad and I had several messages last night from some of the folk who were travelling quite a distance to say that they wouldn't be able to make it so I wasn't sure how many would be there. A special thanks to those who made it and I hope you got home safely. Thanks again to Stephanie and the rest of the staff. I hope you all enjoyed the day

Hexagon Box - Tonic Studios

 It's a bit dreary outside today so I'm keeping busy with lots of crafting. This is a little box made with the Secret Spring Hexagon Kaleidoscope Box & Lid Base die set and the Simple Things Kaleidoscope Box Insert Panel die set. There are multiple dies in each set to create numerous different panel designs and these also work with larger die sets in the collection but I've kept mine quite simple and it still looks good :)

Belfast Castle today

 David and I were working almost beside Belfast Castle today so we nipped in for a quick lunch. The grounds of the castle are beautiful in any kind of weather but the light today after yesterday's storm was just wonderful. The view across Belfast Lough from here is spectacular but we didn't have time to enjoy it much today - maybe next time :)
