Clarity Cumbria on Saturday

Hello there - how are you today? I hope you are well. We are all good and managed to buy and put up our christmas tree on Thursday - well it only fell down once so hopefully thats it up now! I am useless!!!

Today I want to post about our last Saturday trip to Clarity Cumbria. It was our festive trip and was lovely. A really lovely day - thanks to our host Jo Rice and the lovely ladies at Clarity Cumbria.

We all made a house.... here's mine...

I used some art parts and clarity stamps and lots of bits and pieces on this.....

I used weathered wood on the flower to get the crackle....

And I added some pretty lights given to me by the lovely Kezzy over a year ago!!!!

My girls had fun too - as did my mum ...some pics....

It was such a lovely day - thanks all!!!!

We had a great night last night too - we had the official opening of the Shaun Fisher room at our village Institute and had our drama group Christmas play.

They performed a Sid Rivers play called 'Christmas ...why do we do that?' I think it went down well - very short but fun. After that we had a buffet followed by an open mic session and I got my first acting experience - it only lasted 50 seconds but was lots of fun!!!!

Big hugs
