Crafty Hijinks

Do you guys know Gillian of Silly Gilly? many bloggy moons ago, there was a picnic in Ballarat in honour of Trash’s visit to Australia. It was a hoot.
Recently Gillian and I were talking about the picnic and it was decided that we should have another. So we have booked a hall (Ballarat weather being somewhat inclement) , set a date and found someone to organise the lunch.
Do you want to come along? It is going to be very low-key but lots of fun. Its a day just for hanging out, chatting, laughing and crafting. Its early days, but we have a local shop setting up a stall for the day, some door prizes and plans for goody bags.
You don’t have to be cool or groovy or particular friends with anyone – You just need to be a blogger-its that simple. Come in a group or come along on your own.  Have you ever wondered what a blog meet is like? Well there is often a bit of girly shrieking, a lot of laughter and that funny kind of coded talk we do where we call each other our blog names.hijinks
If you would like to come along, you just need to buy a ticket ( a ticket? yep, the cost of the ticket will cover the hall hire, sandwiches and slice for lunch, goody bags and anything else that we organise between now and then) A veritable bargain at $21.50.
If you are a businessy blogger and would like to put something (with your business card) into the goody bags, or you would like to donate a small door prize. Just drop me an email. We already have some fabric and I’ll probably add a toy or two to the mix.
(Now I know there is someone out there thinking “oh man that sounds like fun, but I won’t know anyone and what will I wear and what if no-one talks to me? so email me, I’ll hold your hand and we’ll have a great day)

  9. In my honour? Pshaw! I was but a catalyst. If this do is even half the fun of the last gig there will be sides splitting with laughter and crafty hijinks.

    As the Fat Quarterly Retreat has just drawn to a close I am putting forward the same demand to you all that I made of them - lots of Instagramming, tweeting and Facebooking required so that we may all virtually attend.
