Lovely Day Out

Today I have spent a very enjoyable time at The Great Northern Papercraft show in Harrogate. Sue & Richard of Craftwork cards arrange two shows a year - March & September well worth a visit it is a great day out with lots of demos to watch and crafting goodies to buy. There are a couple of coffee stands with home made cakes, biscuits, muffins and a cafeteria if you want to have a meal.

We arrived bright and early this morning about 8:15am for a workshop with the lovely Dyan from Art from the Heart before the show opened. We made a colourful tag with Claudine Hellmuith paints and grungeboard and then it was time to shop. We managed to get a quick look round before the crowds arrived.

During the day I met up with lots of crafting buddies some of which I had not seen in a while, and some I recognised from blogland!!

On Thursday I managed to bang my head on a shelf in the studio!! I know silly thing to do. At the time it hurt and I said a few words under my breath and carried on... On Friday I had head ache and on Saturday I was feeling really sorry for myself, as my forehead and nose hurt as well as my head!! In fact I started thinking I wouldn't be going to the show, Yes! that's how rubbish I felt, so this morning when I got up head ache free and feeling a lot better I was happy. As the day went on my face started aching again and my nose hurt and felt very bruised... this evening when I removed my makeup I have bruising round my eye and some swelling!! so it's off to the docs for me tomorrow, but I am so pleased I did not miss today. No pictures tonight but I will try and take some tomorrow to show you what else I have been up to this week. What ever you have been doing this weekend I hope you have enjoyed yourselves.
