Hi, Long Time no Speak

God its been a long time since I blogged. How have you all been?
Whats happened? Well I have been away on a few holiday's and had some lovely long weekends away with friends. I now don't design for Sugar and Spice. Marion has decided to go it alone.

The Hiya Crop has been formed; Fabby Claire Lyn and Myself are the Hiya Crop. Why Hiya? Well Fabby asked if we fancied a weekend away cropping. The e-mails between us always began Hi Ya, and as simple as that, we were named.
We had our first weekend away in Graystone in Kent. Fabby found us a lovely house right on the beach. We filled the cupboards with chocolate and the fridge with wine, and scrambling over boxes of craft stash that we had each brought. So organised we were not. Well thats not true, Claire was. We had made lists so that we did not double up on things. Somehow I think the lists went missing. And and we did not go to a craft shop. No, we could not believe it either. We shared everything we had.
There were lots of virgins; stuff we had bought and never used. Now set the scene; 4 tipsy ladies, giggly, and shouting out "Yes another one gone" each time we broke one in. Mmmmmm to the neighbours it must have sounded like something reeeeeeeeeally dodgy, other than four ladies playing with paper.

We recon that we should not need to buy anything for at least a year looking at everything we have. That we should just use each others stash. Its one way of using it up. So the Hiya are meeting once a month and have booked another Longer Weekend away in October.

I will be posting some cards and Christmas tags later tonight.

Sprinkles of love
