If there’s a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than making flower head garlands with some of my fave bloggers, I’ve yet to find it. That’s right, today I was at a blogger event in Bristol, but the difference is, I didn’t organise it this time, so I got to enjoy the whole thing as a guest, which was a lovely change!
#craftybloggermeet was put together by Paige Calvert and Sammy Scott, who did a fine job of bringing everyone together and getting those crafty skills out of even the least arty among us. The event was held at The Birdcage, which was where we held our South West Bloggers Christmas party, and it was the perfect setting to get everyone in the mood to create.
What was great was that we all came out of the day with some fab homemade accessories, as well as a very cute goodie bag, which contained some beautiful, hand-crafted products from Ella Masters, Ruby Rae Love jewellery, Mod Dolly, and Urbangraphicshop.co.uk.
While I really enjoyed being a guest today, it did make me miss running events. It’s a lot of work and a lot of stress, but it’s totally worth it when you see everyone having a great time and enjoying the surprises you’ve prepared for them. I haven’t done one since #SWBXmas, because I’ve been busy at work, buying a house and organising what will probably be the biggest event of my life – our wedding! Having said that, I would really like to get everyone together again, so if anyone has ideas for themes/venues, etc. please do send them over to me and perhaps plans can start for another Christmasssy shindig!
