A week of crafting

Well I have had a blast, my two nieces visited me for a week and we did lots of crafting. Laura is 14 and Martha is 11 so they have lots of ideas and have always been creative. To start with we made smash books, to record our week together and for them to smash other stuff through the year. I forgot to take photos of those and I am only just catching up with mine. But here are some of the other things we got up too.

Tea lights, a make and take from Hobbycraft

     We went to a local pottery cafe.

This is my plate ready to be glazed and fired.

 I took a stencils with me.

We made chocolate cupcakes and then decorated them.
They tasted delicious.

Hubby and I ended the week by taking them home to Cambridgeshire and did an overnight stay by the Thames in Oxfordshire.

We happened upon the Chiltern Craft Show and spent a pleasant few hours wandering round in the sunshine. I made a sheet of linen paper and bought a sheet of denim paper! Can't wait to have a go at home, not sure that my liquidiser will like it though.

I made a file folder record of the weekend.
