I am really pleased to say that Suezie's first waltzing mouse extended workshop is full, and everyone is really excited about it, the date for the next one is TBC.

I am sorry it has taken so long to sort out but this just seems to have taken forever.
So here we go..... first things first, unfortunately Donna has had to move her dates forward a week. She is now teaching for us on Sat 13th and Sun 14th November 2010.
We are still awaiting confirmation on the new venue, butit will be in Bury St Edmunds.
The cost of the workshop does NOT include accommodation but we are happy to give a few names of places that are nice to stay and easy access to the new venue once it is confirmed.
On Saturday 13th November Donna will be teaching one class of about 5-6 hours..... yes that is one class.... it is a fantastic class that Rosina and I took in the summer, it was SOOOOOO much fun.
Fabric Scrapbooking - "Gotta Love Everyday".
This is a 20 page 8x8 canvas scrapbook album..... It was GREAT FUN to do and I know you will all love it.
After that class we will be keeping our Bury St Edmunds shop open (5 mins walk!) or you can pop into the bar and have a few drinks.....
On Sunday 14th November, Donna will be teaching two classes:
Paint, Watercolor and Doodle... - "Laugh Often, Wonder and Live Artfully"
A 6x6 Acrylic and Chipboard Album, and will be about 3 hours long.....
Then we have lunch and a chance to take a break.
The final workshop of the weekend is called "Elegant Garden"and is a 12 x 12 mixed-media fabric page.
The cost is £115 per day or £195 for the 2 days. This includes the kits but you will also be given a supply list well in advance so that you may gather together the items required to enjoy the day to it's fullest potential. We will hold stocks of any items you may require, however, please try and order in advance to avoid disapointment.
We will require a 50% deposit at time of booking. This will be a non refundable deposit unless we have to cancel the event for reasons beyond our control. The balance is due one month before the event. Numbers are strictly limited, so book early to avoid disapointment.
Donna is a very popular teacher, she is great fun and full of knowledge. You will come away excited and enthused!
To book, please call or e-mail
I look forward to hearing from you.

The card opens up to reveal pockets that hold individual photos of her family members. I like that she's used a Martha Stewart border punch to decorate the edges of her pockets. It's also nice to see stamping 'white' on black.
This is the tag from the front and just behind is the insert where she wrote her Christmas message. The jingle bells are a lovely touch and the whole thing looks amazing!
I am inspired!
