When Make and Fable went to Blogtacular!

Bloggers by the nature of their work, tend to be insular souls, tapping away on laptops in their homes with only the cat to talk to. So gather a whole gaggle of creative bloggers in a venue in central London and the decibel levels rise.

Blogtacular 2016

Blogtacular! Is something I have wanted to attend for a couple of years now. At first I wasn’t sure I could justify the expense, then I was away on holiday, but the third time? I made a decision I was going.There is a Blogtacular Twitter chat every Wednesday night at 9pm GMT. As Twitter chats go, it’s pretty damn awesome:well organised, friendly and actually useful.

Craft Blog Club Secret Santa!

Craft Blog Club Secret Santa!

One of the things I really enjoy about social media is the connections you can make and the interactions between people you rarely get the chance to have in ‘real life’. In particular, I love twitter chats and every Tuesday evening at 7pm GMT there is #CraftBlogClub. They are a friendly bunch, and even though I don’t make it every week, I always enjoy it when I do! Back in November the Secret Santa was mentioned and thought it sounded like fun and signed up!
I got Katie of Katiegetscrafty and after a little bit of internet stalking, decided to make her a small notebook and a gemstone bracelet!

She had made me some gorgeous goodies; a hessian star and some wooden Scrabble tile Christmas decorations (oh and a chocolate reindeer lollipop!
