A Haunted village!

Hello, or should I say Bonjourno?!
I am back from Italy, it was unbelievably fabulous and I have tonnes of photos - but that is for another post.
So, last Sunday I set out in the wind and rain at 6.15am  (that sounds like a hardship but I was delighted to be going!) to Bunmahon in Co. Waterford. Caroline from Crafters Cove had invited me to her home studio for the day... oh my, what a studio!! she had arranged for 10 crafters to come to the class and for Bernie from BK designs to bring her shop along.
I have to say a huge thank you to Caroline, not only did she do all the organising she also had croissants warming in the oven for when we arrived!!!

 Here are the Ladies hard at work, there were times when it was silent because they were concentrating... I was beginning to get worried.
 But then they got chatty again, right about the time we declared a tea break!
 This is Pat hiding behind her house. We used Echo Park "Chillingsworth Manor" paper and the new Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells stamp set, which are gorgeous by the way.
 Now you can see the whole village of haunted houses, all different, some had purple windows, others green and one had turquoise!
 This is my house... i'm still adding bits to it.
 This was the kit for the day - I decided to put the house by itself and a smaller kit (just enough to decorate the house without making the back part) on Ebay, i've never sold anything that way before so it'll be interesting to see what happens! I'm doing it all again on the 28th in Ballinameela and then 10th October here at home for anyone in Kerry. But you could always put in a bid on Ebay if you want!
 I just wanted to show you this album . It was sent to me by Martina in the swap organised by Sandi and I just love it! It is so pretty, this photo doesn't show the colours well. We included tags with "things you didn't know about me" on and its a great way to get to know your swap partner.

She put in a Halloween page because she is a fan too - how fab is it?! Thank you again Martina!!
So, thats all my news - I will be back with a post about Kates CHA release weekend soon, i'm deciding what classes I want to take, spoilt for choice I am!!
