Last Saturday I was lucky enough to attend the Hillarys Blinds Crafternoon Craft Workshop hosted by The Crafty Hen & organised by Joe Blogs Blogger Network. I'm er, not exactly the world's best blogger so I was really surprised but DELIGHTED to be invited to the event. I've always wanted to get into the blogging community but I suppose I didn't really know how to go about it. So I jumped at the chance to attend this event because 1. I wanted to meet lots of other bloggers, 2. I want to get back into blogging and this seemed like an ideal opportunity to kickstart my motivation and 3. I like to think I'm quite a crafty person who would be a natural at something like this (ahem more on that later). So I took myself and a friend along to the Jazz Cafe in Newcastle to attend my first blogger event.
