Yesterday evening I treated myself to a night off work and decided to go along with a fellow crafty friend to the Papermash Craft Shop Mingle event hosted by the very lovely Lynne who runs the I-want-everything-in-it-shop, Papermash.
Lynne herself also writes a fab blog Tea for Joy so it was inevitable the event would be full of like-minded bloggers who enjoy craft, design and a shared obsession with washii tape! I met some really lovely people, most who were out of the wedding circle I normally hang around with so was nice to put some new faces to blogs!
Lynne worked really hard to pull the event together – there were delicious cocktails [served in floral cups, of course!] a chance to do your own screen print [my first ever!], a shop full of Papermash goodies to stock up on [which, of course I did], jam jar decorating and love note writing! It was all held at the cutest little place in Clapham called The Papered Parlour. If you’re looking for a great little place to hold a hen party then this place is perfect and has some fun classes!
Lovely to meet all those I chatted to, I came away with neon, striped and gold polka dot tape, a LOVE screenprint, a belly full of glitter cupcakes and a typed on doily. My heaven! Thanks Lynne for being a great host [and to all your lovely helpers too!].
