How did You Spend Your Friday Night Girls

So what did you get up to last night ?

You'll never guess what I got up to
.........not a night in , not a night on the town.............

but a night in with the girls, wine, a packet of haribo and BUTTONS !!!!!

As you may know I sell my products locally in The Hope Emporium as well as volunteering to run the shop with my friend Jane. Hope is the charity which have set up the shop to support local mums back into work that fits in with family life. We sell work by many crafters and makers aswell as raising money for the Hope Family Centre Charity. In an effort to raise more money for Hope we had a idea.....

Buttons, Beads, Lace, Ribbon and anything creative="Craft bags"

So last night we got together with bags of donated bits, off cuts of ribbon, fabric scraps and all the bits we could all just about bear to part with and got bagging.

What a night, I had great fun!

We bundled ribbon

We bundled lace

We made vintage feel bags

We made girly bags
And we even made boys bags

And of course the wine and the bag of haribo made it extra good !

  1. The Hope Emporium sounds like a great idea - and the bags of goodies look fab!

  2. great idea! sounds like fun x

  3. I know I'm old now, for I would rather spend a night in with buttons rather than going out on the town!xx

  4. What fun bags - I am sure they will sell well. I can imagine little girls buying them for special crafty projects.

  5. Those bags look super cute and what an awesome idea for a charity. I am a kiwi crafty type but having spent a couple of years in the UK I can appreciate the Haribo comments! They are like an institution over there! I will be back to have a look at some more of your lovely crafts for sure!

  6. Some of those bags of bits look very familiar Jo!! i was loving the bags and beads and buttons and bits of lovliness!! it was brilliant fun and the Haribo certainly sweetend the deal!! :) my first batch of buttons arrived yesterday morning from button box will soon be overflowing :):) cant wait until the next gathering!! xxx
