Mrs Martin's Summer School was such a brilliant experience made even better by the fabulous women who organised the day for us. And the wonderful participants too.
Karen from Mrs Martins is such a star when it comes to organising fun filled workshops. She found brilliant tutors, thanks Lisa and Lou from Max and Louise for your wonderful designs and all the tips and hints. The day was held in a lovely venue and Karen supplied us with delicious treats.
This was morning tea - a delicious plate of yumminess for each person.
And sweet treats to share.
Unfortunately I can't show you the amazing chocolate cheese cake we had for afternoon tea, as I gobbled it down before remembering to take a picture.
Knowing that Cheryl was travelling all the way from Stawell and leaving home very early, kind Maria bought this delicious plate of goodies for Cheryl's lunch.
Such a kind thing to do.
Happily Karen organised one of my favourites to be there - fabulous Barb from Theodora Cleave. Barb bought a huge range of her delightful handpainted buttons + her fabulous boards to inspire us and give our creativity a bit of a nudge.
Have you noticed the beautiful buttons on my new header. I bought these from Barb last year and I am so in love with them especially the big black dog.
I had to add these little beauties to my collection, the little dogs for me, the rest for gifts.
And speaking of gifts, Barb gave me this wonderful new design button
and I'm sharing it as a

Have a wonderful day
