Makey do treasure

So, the Makey do is over, it was good but I can't pretend I'm not relieved to have my life back a bit. It has been all consuming and I hadn't realised how much it was wrapping me up and making me boring!! I had an ace day, surrounded by family and friends old and new. I was really excited to meet all the bloggy and Folksy pals who came along, and everyone was just as gorgeous and smiley as I expected- phew! I got some presents too! Karen had made the epic journey to come down for the 'do', and I asked Mum and Dad to hold fire on my birthday present until the do in case (!) I saw anything I wanted.......well off course I wanted everything, but when it came to pointing them in the direction of a stall to shop from I had to point them in Karen's direction. I feel privileged to own this piece-I will hang it in my bedroom and admire it daily. Flavia, a lovely local stallholder gave me this beautiful glass pendant, chosen and matched to my outfit for me. Perfect colours for me! Thank you Flavia. I also received some amazing paper craft- a R.A.K, A.T.C from Leonie and a Thank you card from Jennyfleur designs. These are really special and will be kept safe and sound. I did a little shopping myself when I found a trader selling these fat quarters at 75p each- I have spoken to him this morning and have ordered twenty more. My stall did reasonably well but I am now in a reflective mood and will post more about my future plans when the mist clears!!

I have just discovered your blog, and can't believe I missed it - and I don't live very far away! Good to find someone else blogging in Kent - I'll be back.
