More Advent Calendars

So today was the first crafting session making my Advent Calendar... and I am absolutely delighted with everyone's Calendars... so I have to share.... though I apologise for the photo quality...taken mid-class in a rush!

My 4 ladies had all decided to make the version with the Home For Christmas papers... and they had the whole pack to choose from... so they all picked the holly papers - and either the newspaper or candy stripe... our only surprise being that only the black showed up on the holly papers!

Though I have to laugh as they all rejected the vanilla ribbon I had bought  - and use my retired ribbons stash instead... no such choice for the next session... all gone!

We will be making Advent Calendars next on Wed 25th Nov... but any day can be booked for you and group of friends... half day session required (2 1/2 hours)... or combined with other projects to make a full day session if you prefer...

Firstly Karen's...
Secondly Nicola's...
Thirdly Heidi's... which was hiding when I took the group photo! Oops...
And lastly Denise's...
Aren't they all fab!

  2. They are fabulous Amanda. Been bit busy for a lot of blog visiting :-) Off to a ' pink night' tonight - my friend is cooking 15 - sit down dinner we all make a donation that goes to one of cancer charities. Then tomorrow is All Day Class! Think I'll be tired this time tomorrow :-) Would love to be in Brussels as well . :-)
