Christmas Eve 2014

Sunny and breezy on Christmas Eve 2014, love the beach at Christmas rain, snow or shine!


Hillarys Craft Event in Brighton

I was invited to an craft event recently arranged by Hillarys and the Joe Blogs Network held in Taj’s Tea Parlour, a quaint venue with a vintage vibe in the heart of Brighton's Lanes.  

The event was led by Kirsty of Make do and Trend, a Sussex based craft workshop specialist who had provided a couple of crafty bunting and bauble making activities for a crowd of Sussex bloggers to attempt with Hillarys fabrics.

Our first task was to create bunting with the provided pre-cut material, glue and rope, this is a really easy and effective way of making bunting fast.  I am bunting crazy and have made many buntings previously which adorn our house and garden periodically but this was by far the easiest with no sewing involved!  

Tea and Christmas tree shaped biscuits were then served before we got onto the job of making an intricate bauble.  This proved to be a little challenging but we all got there in the end!  

Thanks to Hillarys, Joe Blogs Blogger Network and Taj's Tea Parlour for hosting an enjoyable afternoon.
