Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW Crop (photo heavy!)

Oh what a day we had.

Full of fun, giggles, cake, more cake, more chatting, cake, giggles oh and crafting too, of course!

Myself and my mate, Lisa arrived early, my fault, I plan and am too organised by far (see Julia's photo evidence of my bag!) but I liked that cos it meant I could say 'Hi' as everyone came in and I loved the fact that people recognised me, yes it really was me, that same lady from the photo on my blog! 

And so the day started, desks covered in crafty stash, the floor too, a space saved for Helen (Stamping by H) who usually crafts on the floor. Cake galore, tea and coffee poured. Chatter and giggles. Inks sprays and splodges. Sounds of the heat tool, clicking of cameras. Clatter of knives and forks as lunch was eaten (and yummy it was too, says me, little miss greedy who had to have a bit of everything). More clicking, more giggles, more rustle of paper and oohing at work. Did I mention the hugs, plenty of them too. Then before we knew it was time to go again, I'm sure someone stole the day from us as it didn't seem long before the bags were packed again and cars refilled. Then more hugs and photos. And with a smile me and Lisa tootled off home with cake parcels, goody bags, a purchase or two, but most importantly a big smile on our faces, some happy memories and some friendships firmly found.

Right here's the pics, ladies, feel free to save any you want for yourselves, I know we all took lots so can guess we'll all have pics we all want.

Me and Kyla 

Me and Di

Me and Helen

Me and Julia

Me and Jan (LLJ)

For those of you who didn't come along, well you really did miss out so be sure to come next time, because I really do hope that there will be a next time, for that to happen. Hope you enjoyed my peek into the day, I can't wait for others to share their photos too. 

Take care Zo xx

PS I will link this post in my WOYWW post too so those who don't follow me can have a look as well!

What is the fascination with my stuff then? Why has everyone photographed it and posted my bags on their blogs. I only put it in several bags so it makes it easier to find...kinda!
Fabulous day though and great to meet folks.
Didn't they do well?!!!
Nice to meet you and look forward to the next one!
P.S. are you going to NEC next month?

It was such a lovely day, meet new friends (though I felt as though I knew so many already) and fab to finally meet you. There was a lot of cake wasn't there!
Hope your not too tired today (cake will help!).


RosA said...

What a great day! I love your super organised craft bag!! Is it a particular brand? Could use something like that!

CraftygasheadZo said...

No Sam, I'm not going to NEC, though I'd love to one year! Fab to meet you too. xx

CraftygasheadZo said...

This looks a really fun day, I hope you are recovered now.

I have often wondered, what does WOYWW stand for?

Helen said...

You write well, Zoe! Love the photos, and it was good to meet you finally. You will have to get Lisa blogging now....!

Dee's Craft Room said...

Thank you for letting me know what WOYWW stands for.

I do not have a work desk, I used to use my dinning table but over the years the cardboard boxes have piled up on the table so these days I tend to sit at my ironing board, lol. It's very handy, I can take it into any room but mostly I sit in front of the TV to craft.

Glad you had a fab time - but did you get any crafting done with the fab 3 Fs - fun, friends, & food?! Good ol' Zo - always organised, always early! Love ya :0) Debs xxx

JoZart said...

Great to meet you for real and what a fab time it was. Hope you've recovered somewhat but you are certainly a credit to yourself enjoying life to the full as you do and always smiling! When is Lisa joining WOYWW as she's now an honorary member!
Keep crafting, keep smiling!
Love Jo x
