Where have we all been?

Goodness, I struggled to open this little blog up this much dust everywhere.  I am wondering where everyone has gone to?  Have you all won the pools and become millionaires...does anyone do "the pools" or is it all the lottery now?  Anyway,  I have dusted, swept up, got rid of all the gunk that had gone off and here we are, a nice new shiny place again, all ready for everyone to blog again.

Would you like to post here but dont know how or have the necessary permissions?  Please let me know and I will help you out. 

Here is a scrapbook page that I have done recently.  A few of us went off on a day out to a scrapbooking class.  The next day out is in June and if you fancy coming along, please let either Pam Partridge or myself know and we will give you details.

What is your latest creation?  Please put a post on so that we can all see what you have been up to.

The next get together is Derby Dabblers at St. Martin's Church Hall, Flint Street, Allenton. It is from 6.30 - 9.30 and the price is £3.00 for adults and £2.00 for teenages.  The theme for the evening, which you dont have to follow if you dont want to is RED WHITE AND BLUE.

Are you able to bring in the cakes/naughty bits?  There are normally 2 people who bring in the cakes etc.  I am very happy to bring something in on May 4th can someone else bring in something too?  Can you coming along in future months and provide the cakes/biscuits. If so, please let me know so that I can fill up the slots on the right hand side.

Hope that you can fill up the blog with bits and pieces that you have been up to, tell us your latest news or show your latest creation.  Have you purchased anything that was fantastic value or a waste of money?  Waiting to hear from you next

Hello Ladies

Happy Easter

to everyone & hope you are all enjoying the BH

Date and Times

Spondon Dabblers next get together is Friday April 20th from 6.30 - 9.30pm


Spondon Village Hall, next to the Library. If you need directions, please let me know.

Theme for the evening

The theme for this month is "anything goes".

If you don't fancy doing any crafting at all, just come for a cuppa and a natter.

If anyone has anything to demonstrate a card/altered item/or a box to make please let me know as I can circulate requirements so that we can all have a go at making something new

Other crafts

Don't forget, you don't have to do card making or scrapbooking to join in the fun of Derby Dabblers. If you knit, make jewellery, crochet or anything else please feel free to come along chat to everyone there whilst doing the crafting of your choice.


The price for the evening will be £3.00 for adults.

Show and Tell

Please bring along any cards, scrapbook pages or anything else that you may have done recently as everyone loves to look at what has been created but, be warned, you may need to tell everyone how you made it.

For Sale or For Swap

If you have any crafting items that you wish to sell or swap for something else, you are most welcome to bring them along to see if anyone on the night may want to purchase/swap with you.


If you have any items that you no longer use and they are taking up valuable space in your crafting area, please bring them with you on Friday night. There will be a FREEBIES table where you can put your unwanted items and I am sure that there will be others there that may be able to use them.

If you know of a local school/nursery or charity that may make use of anything left on the table at the end of the evening, you will be welcome to take them along.

If you are thinking of coming along for the first time please do come and join us. It is a wonderful social evening, everyone is very welcoming and I am sure you will have a great night. Please feel free to bring a friend or two with you on Friday & don't forget your name badge, like I always seem to do.

It would really be appreciated if you could send me an email to let me know if you will be coming along as it help for catering purposes.
