Crafty Blogger Meet

Hi guys! On Sunday I had a fab day getting my craft on the Crafty Blogger meet in Bristol. Hosted by the lovely Paige from Paige Joanna and Sammy from The Cookie Button I met up with my beauts blogger gal Vicki and we headed to The Birdcage for the event! I'd never been in the little cafe-come-vintage shop before but it was totally perfect for the whole event with gorgeously quirky and vintage decor, it's definitely somewhere I'll be visiting again. We were treated to a cheeky slice of delicious cake and unlimited tea, which in case you may not have noticed is right up my street!

3 or 4 cups of China Jasmine tea and a catch up with Vicki later, Paige and Sammy popped round and chatted to us all before we were shown all the fab crafty bits the girls had got together for us to get creative with! There were so many different things to choose from so I ended up grabbing a big old selection of faux flowers, ribbons, bows - you name it, and decided to make a little floral corsage head band. Sammy kindly gave me a few pointers how to attach the flowers and despite a few mishaps with the super glue (webbed fingers was not really ideal) I was surprised at how easy it is to create a cute little head band. 

There were some amazingly creative things spilling out from all the lovely fellow bloggers with big floral crowns to bunny ears and cute little bow ties, but it was Vicki who won the prize for the best creation with her super cool burgandy studded floral head band!! Yay! We were also treated to a seriously generous goodie bag with lots of vintagey bits and bobs inside. I can't wait to go back to my 90's kid roots and crack out the floral scrunchie I had in mine :) 

It had been ages since I'd properly sat down and done anything crafty so a massive thank you to Paige and Sammy for hosting so a great event and being so welcoming! It made a perfect Sunday afternoon!

Outfits deets: I ended up having to have a quick change last minute going for my fave slouchy sports-luxe top from Olive, skinny jeans from Miss Selfridge and Sandals and Bar Necklace from Oasis
