Annual Craftmad Meet Up 5-7 October 2013

Well here we are - the ladies from Craftmad at the second annual meet up.  It was a first for me and I thoroughly loved it.  So nice after 8 years of belonging to this wonderful forum to meet the ladies in the flesh. We all met up in Brisbane at Kaye's place for the long weekend 5-7 October and crafted for three days.  Brilliant.

Don't you just love our outfits.  Kaye and Ruth had been very busy making all our names tags, place markers, head bands, wristbands and providing cool glasses and black beads ready for our arrival.  The aprons were given to us by Mandy the owner of Craftmad.  In case you are curious that is me centre front row.

This amazing collection is all that I created over the long weekend.  I still have about four kits that I did not get to that need putting together.  We all had to bring at least one project kit for everyone to do.  Majority of us brought two and some a couple more.  So we were kept busy.  It was fun trying out everyones style of cardmaking and also to try out different crafting items that I have only ever seen on the web and not in the flesh.  So over the next couple of weeks I will slowly post a closer view of these creations and some more details.

If you would like to see more photos of our get together you can visit the Craftmad gallery.  Maybe even join in the forum.  You could also visit Kaye or Kerry's blogs to see their posts about our get together.
