brighton bloggers meet

on saturday i went to the brighton bloggers meet organised by lauren and hannah. despite feeling like super nervous for half of the day, everyone was lovely and it was a perfect summers day to sit in the pavilion gardens chatting away. hannah, lauren and freya have written great posts on the day (and also remembered to take photos). check out everyone's blogs by clicking their names: 


as part of the day we had a little "summer santa" swap and i was ecstatic to receive this amazing cat from freya. clearly this present was made for me (though pixel isn't sure what to make of him yet!) and i can't believe the detail on him- freya, you are seriously good at embroidery :)
hannah also gave out some lovely lush goodies, and i can't believe i'm admitting this to the world of bloggers, but the toner tabs i received will be my first time using any lush product!

this week has been pretty manic- i started my new job on monday on top of working both of my other jobs- 6 day weeks are a killer! hopefully things will calm down next week as i'll be back down to a normal (!) two and i'll get into the swing of things.

also, don't forget to enter my giveaway to win a crafty creatives box! thank you for all of your entries so far, and don't forget to follow crafty creatives on facebook and twitter.

  2. sounds like a lovely afternoon- I lived in Brighton for 3 years and never once went to the Pavilion gardens, I think that's more shameful than never having used a Lush product :p love the cat!! xx

  4. Looks like you had a lovely time, that little creature is so gorgeous, it's just you all over! I'm sure Pixel will soon warm to him, though hopefully not too much, as my cat has a lovely little habit of eating/scratching/digging her claws into/never letting go of anything she likes to much, hehe, she's just very possessive!
