"Ding Dong the bells are gonna chime...

..pull out the stopper lets have a whopper but get me to the church on time!" Sorry I couldn't resist a bit of a sing song there! Amidst all of the crafty adventures that the Mafia have been trying to undertake this year, the summer of 2011 holds some VERY exciting dates for two of our Dons here in Nottingham!

Our very own Don Liam is to wed the lovely Lynne next week and our lovely crochet queen Don April is to marry her beau Sean in less than 4 weeks time! That's right people! Two Don weddings in less than two months! EXCITING stuff huh?

With this in mind we'd just like to Thank you all for your continued support and interest this year so far with the Nottingham Craft Mafia. We have so many big plans and exciting cards on the table regarding the Mafia and we're so happy to have you all on board with us. These next couple of months are going to be very much a whirlwind of excitment for the newly weds so please bare with us in terms of the next couple of socials and any further progression with the Mafia.

While the other two Dons are mad busy planning and prepping for their big day I intend to beaver away at the blog, facebook and hopefully bring you a shiny new website over the summer time! So please keep watching this space and dropping by the facebook page to show your love and share your creative adventures! We love it and can't do any of this without you!

So waffling aside... I hope you'll all join me in wishing April & Sean and Liam & Lynne all the bestest in their bright new futures together! Here's to Summer 2011 and lots of exciting fun times all round! HUZZAH!

Here's to the happy couples!
Lots of Love
