On my way to Providence..


Happy Friday everyone!

It's been a busy week - so my craft time has been limited, but that is all about to change :)

I have the day off today and I am heading to a great art retreat hosted by the fabulous Jenn Shurkus.

The whole trip is making me giddy and super excited, I've not been on a train since we moved and I love trains, so that will be fun. I've also never been to Providence, so I am looking forward to arriving at a reasonable time today so I can have an explore.

It also means 2 nights in a hotel - this is my HUGE treat to myself..Hubby and I are looking forward to some alone time - we spend nearly all of our time together now that we live in NYC and its nice to have a bit of a break :)

And of course a whole day of making with other an epic playdate.

The main photo today of the cute little boxy pouch thingies, that I made for all my fellow retreat-mates.

Super easy to make..CASEd and modified from Pinterest.

Supplies used : old super long card blanks, scrap papers cut to size, crop-a-dile, twine, cellophane bags, brads, choccies!

Hope I made enough..

Have a great weekend..I am super happy mine has started..
