Stitch & Craft - my new stash!

Evening all, I'm so pleased to have some comments, I often wonder if it's just me out there in the internet-world and my mind makes up the responses on forums etc!

Talking of forums... in response to some feedback over on MSE I have changed my font to calibri (my favourite word-font) and the colour to a lovely dark pink. I hope this helps people read my ramblings better!

So today was my trip to Stitch and Craft at Olympia in London, it was an awesome day if a little tiring. I think we were possibly the youngest there and had a ball talking to more experienced crafters and stitchers, I learnt a lot from everyone I spoke to.

I know you're all wondering what I bought and of course you need to see it so here it goes...

Firstly... everything I bought crammed into these two bags - pretty darned small and dull!

It all expanded into this...
You'll see some new nesties, storage, a new heat gun, loads of embossing plates and a QVC teddy from Dawn Bibbys Birthday party (which incidentally was the first I knew of Dawn and of how popular QVC is!).

Of course I didn't stop there as I have a craft room to start, finish and fill! I found the most amazing sales lady who 'forced me' to buy this little glue bottle with an injection type nib to write with.

I also needed a new injection of papers and so I got these, look out for them in cards coming soon! (they were a bargain at just £2.50 a pack - so the ones where I don't really like the style are a good bargain for backgrounds).

My first blog post

Ok so, after messing around with this blog for months, I am finally in the market for some content. If this works, below is a photo of an Easter card I made this weekend from some cute Forever Friends papers I got in a closing down sale in Reading. They were 90p for a 5mm thick pack and the card blank is from Tesco, I don't recommend them, they smell like chemicals.
Watch this space for my carboot finds, ebay treasures, card making weirdness (Happy Friday cards etc!), strange goings on and general commuting rants.
