My makes from Jo Rice's Retreat

Good morning! How are you? I hope you are well! A bit of a catch up post today - I am getting behind on showing what I have been up to! First things first - the retreat at Lindale with Jo Rice.
It was a two day retreat and we worked at a relaxed pace and this is what we made....

This was mostly made on the Sunday ....Jo had designed the MDF wreath...I bought another one that you'll be seeing shortly. Wish I had bought more!!!

These cards were mostly made on the Saturday - really nice makes and good for my Christmas card pile! We also made a candle - I am not very fond of mine so haven't even photographed it! 

I also have a few pics of Halloween to share here too. We all had fun trick or treating ...

No automatic alt text available.

The pumpkins were carved ....Lucy's friend annabel was around and she did one too!

Lucy and Annabel had fun making their costumes ...splattering with fake blood...horrid!!!

Have a great day!
