It's such a miserable night here - rain is pelting down, the wind is blowing the bins all over the place, and we've the fire lit for some comfort inside. Somehow it just doesn't feel like spring has sprung, even though the Google logos are trying to convince us otherwise! So in the name of encouraging spring along, I thought I'd share some photos I took of my friend Zoë teaching a group of fabulous women how to make a floral crown. Zoë is the owner of Zoë Conville Design House, based here in Bangor, and we're doing a little mutual Mother's Day giveaway on our Facebook pages which you might want to check out. Her floral creations are completely stunning yet she manages to make it all look so easy. I've had a go at it and I can tell you it's not!These images were taken at a party organised by another creative and talented friend, Janice of Gathered Threads, and the combination of creative women, sunshine and maybe just a little bubbly made for a wonderful evening all round. I highly recommend a nosey at the websites and Facebook pages of these two, as well as making sure you're all signed up to the giveaways. You can enter Zoë's via her Facebook page and mine by making sure you're on my newsletter list before Friday 23 March at midday. You'll find the link for that here. For now I shall leave you with these gloriously sunny photos and head back off to the fire, and maybe a wee gin!Don't forget you can sign up to my newsletter here for news, offers and general chit chat delivered right to your inbox!
