And a good time was had by all.

A very busy day at my all-day Christmas crafts workshop yesterday and everyone was busy busy busy! Have a look. This is Lynn playing with alcohol inks and acetate card:

Kathleen finishing off her Christmas banner:

Sisters Heather and Betty playing with alcohol inks (their favourite!):

Sue had a go with acrylic paints for the first time:

And look at the concentration here! Not everyone, but quite a lot, decided to have a go with the paints. Yay!

A mother and daughter team working on their painted canvases:

And a finished canvas made by Bethany, aged 10. Interesting that she chose to make a 'bird person' without any suggestion off anyone! Children are great at thinking outside of the box:

And finally, last but not least, is Jane playing with paints, images and papers:

Of course we had to have mince pies, but I managed to restrain myself from playing the Christmas carols just yet......
Well done everyone, you did a great job :-)
