For those of you not in the know, HEY Bloggers is a group of girls who are all bloggers themselves, who have developed a blogging community in the Hull and East Riding area. They support bloggers through their social media and also through events and meet ups!
When this event was advertised, I had to take part as it’s so different to anything I usually do and it’s a networking and relationship making opportunity. It also seemed like the perfect way to end my school holidays!
A group of bloggers arrived and we were assisted and welcomed by Louise and Rich from Hobbycraft Hull. A massive thank you to them both – nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel really welcome!
In our goody bags, there was a guide to teach us how to decopatch and we were provided with a variety of papers, gems, paints etc to create our masterpieces. We had a laugh talking about music and just putting the world to rights. It was massively relaxed and I think that’s important especially if any new bloggers came to the event.
There was something cathartic about making these lamp bases and honestly, it makes me excited to see what else Hobbycraft have to offer in terms of workshops! I chose a cute apple print that reminded me of a Cath Kidston style print! This is during the drying process so it looks better now, promise!
Finally, thanks to the HEY blogger girls for organising this. It’s always great when the blogging community meets and this was so different to usual events! The people who attended are all awesome, brilliant women and I’ll link their insta profiles below because, why wouldn’t you want to follow them?
