I hope whoever gets them likes them! And now I have a little time off before my next crop - though I have to get ready for the library crop. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

So day three was mostly time to wind down and just do a little bit of last minute crafting and visiting. I didn't really get anything done, just worked on a couple things to get them started. 

In progress pieces

And the rest of my tags for my swap

And even though I didn't win it, I love how the puzzle board came out!

This is my piece just so you can see what I did - I love how everyone's is different!!

And then of course it was time to pack up and go home. Another successful craft weekend in the books. Paula posted pics when she got home of two of the layouts she worked on. I totallly love them so have to share!

And when I got home and unpacked, I just couln't stop crafting!! I finished one of the make n takes from Calgary Carnival that I didn't have time to do when I was there.

It was a great weekend, and I did get some better photos take of my tag swaps items, so will do a separate post on them. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

So day two was another FANTASTIC day!! We got EXTREMELY spoiled this time, I have to say! We got some more great stuff from the crop, and then all the "30 Things" that everyone brought.

And then it was time to get to work! I didn't feel like I was getting anything done, but turns out I got all my tags and pockets done for my swap! And that was on top of taking a class and teaching THREE sets of make n takes. All in all a VERY CRAFTY day.

And of course we had to get some group photos!

I didn't win any of the door prizes or anything, but I did get the paper bag items I wanted, as well as the Silent Auction item I bid on. Oh well, that is how it goes at these things.

It was a seirously fantastic day - and we were out super late so I am exhausted. But I am looking forward to a bit more fun tomorrow. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps.

So we are on the way - got away from work a bit earlier that planned so we we made good time getting to the event. 

And of course as soon as we got there we were spoiled, as always!

And I got to see one of my besties again!

And I even got a bit done, amongst all the visiting.

All in all, a great start to the weekend - can't wait to do it all again tomorrow. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
I got a shoutout today from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine on their Facebook page! It was showing a photo from Carnival in Edmonton with all of us in our Santa Hats that I donated. Great photo. And thanks for the shoutout gals!!

Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

So as well as getting the swap done that I started at Carnival, I also got some happy mail yesterday. It was my September Crafty Courtyard Box from Pink and Main. It was fall colours this time - I liked this one so think I will be keeping this one. I did an unboxing video - check it out.

And as you can see in the video, I also showed the swap project I was working on at Carnival, which I finished last night as well. Here are some photos of the project.

Along with the box and the goodies I filled it with, I made my partner a couple tags and an ATC with the same paper and accessories. I love how they turned out - even if the larger tag turned out not to fit in the box!! LOL

I did also get myself all packed for my upcoming craft weekend in Grimshaw, so more pictures will be forthcoming! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

Monday 23 September 2019

So I said I would post a photo when I got home of the other project - layout - I did while at Carnival in Calgary. I am happy with how it came out.

I am hoping to finish the swap I was working on at Carnival as well and get it photographed - not to mention getting unpacked and then re-packed for the crop in Grimshaw coming up this weekend. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

So day two was just as much fun as day one! I spent almost the entire time doing make n takes, but I did get a bit more work done on the swap I brought to work on. I have to finish them at home but they are coming along nicely. I did also make a layout, but I haven't had a chance to take a photo of it yet. I will do that once I get home and post it later, along with pics of the finished swap project.

And all the make n takes were awesome!! 
Gave me ideas on how to use products I already own.

Was a really fun time and I can't wait to do it all over again this coming weekend with my crafty peeps in Grimshaw! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!
