The Last 7 days

The last 7 days have been full of events and happiness. Last Thursday we took part in CADS open doors, this took place in the CADS on Smithfield.
There were representations from all the different projects and people CADS helps support. It was great fun and I got to talk to loads of people I hadn’t met before,
I also got a guided tour around the building in which I frequently get lost!

Then on Saturday we took part in the first ever GIRL GANG Sheffield at The Picture House Social.
This event was the collaborative efforts of THE CREEPS STORE and Handmade Cinema, The Picture House was transformed into Spring Fling heaven!

It was a full house for the screening off Mean Girls. We held a workshop before the film along with Frances and Rose, who were making quirky fabric and pom pom corsages! This is the first of many more GIRL GANG events to take place, to keep up to date like them on Twitter here or Facebook here.

We ran our Positivity Pack Workshop, this consists of creating a ‘cartoon’ version of yourself for the outside of an envelope.

Then we filled the packs with positive representations of our personalities and experiences. This is really fun but also makes you think about all the important and amazing stuff you’ve achieved. Here are some samples from our workshop, I really need to get better at taking pictures!

We all know when you are in a rut or downward spiral it can be pretty hard to keep in mind all the positive aspects of yourself and your life.

Next Wednesday, we are teaming up with Designing Out Suicide to bring you a Warrior Doll workshop, I can’t wait to see you next week!
