Post Note: I had such fun last weekend....remember I was looking forward to a work shop from Finnabiar. It sure was all that I expected and more. She gives a good workshop and I loved her humour. We all learnt a lot about her mixed media products....I now have nearly all of them! Need I say more. I am still recovering from all that fun I had so I shall get some photos up as soon as poss. I am also giving a work shop myself this coming it is heads down bums up.
Have a great day to you all.
