Craftmad Meet Up Wrap Up

We sure did a lot at this Craftmad Meet Up….as it has taken me two weeks or more to post about it.  Today I am doing a wrap up and these are all the goodies I received.  I shared a couple bags of chocolates but will be much more prepared next year. :-)  I felt so very spoilt and literally bought a new suitcase to go home. :-)  The photo above is the craft area all set up by Kaye and Ruth. Note the little wine goblets were the place markers and down the centre a few containers of chocolates etc.

Kaye and Ruth gave us all these gift bags in theme with all the decorations.

This box was inside the above bag.

Then there were die cuts inside the box.

Now this little notebook cover I didn't get to open until I returned home.

And what a beautiful surprise it was…..these lovely decorated pins ready for a very special card.

Part of the theme.

The place marker.

Our initial badge.

Part of the gift bag.

A special box to hold the CD that Kaye forwarded to each of us with all/most of the photos.

Us all decked out in the theme of things.

A joint project by Kaye and Ruth that we did.  My second ever scrap page.

A beautiful gift from Jan that I now use for my morning cup of tea and makes feel very special and lady like. Yes, the little finger almost sticks out. :-)

A gift from Ruth which came in a brown paper bag and was topped with the doily and peg.  Looked terrific.

From Kerry, this terrific CD gift holder. Kerry handout the birds and there are two on each side and multiply that by 7……gives a lot of patience.

All the goods stuffed into Kerry's gift holder….amazing.

This wonderful photo/note holder peg that I won during the Craftmad Meet Up.

I was lucky to win the Lucky Door prize and this now hanging in our pantry.

Two cards from my project kits that my daughter completed while at the Craftmad get together.

This photo shows that underneath all the glasses, beads and aprons we are just normal crafters.  Thats me on the ground far right.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for visiting and leaving lovely comments.

  8. Hey, I see some ideas we can use for our next shoebox party! So did you figure out what my little tool gadget is for? My hubbin had to google its purpose also! :)

  9. I'm stuffed full of turkey, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, stuffing, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake & candy bars. Spent the afternoon over here at my hubbin's folks & now most of them are playing games. And tomorrow we spend the day with my mother and do it all over again! :)
