BEWARE.........STASH BRAG ...........!!!!!!!!

Apologies to all these are some of the bits I purchased at the NEC Birmingham when I went on Friday with Jo. We had a fab time and both of us spent far to much money. The place was absolutely packed and I must say I did at one point wonder why on earth do we put ourselves through this but hey ho.
The people who make the Magnolia Stamps were there all the way from Holland it was amazing to see so many Magnolias, or moomins as Shirley calls them lol. They have a magazine which I never knew about which obviously I purchased and some flipping gorgeous Christmas and Halloween papers which obviously I purchased too could have bought a lot more, I also purchased a Father Christmas Stamp which I fell in love with and as you can see from the pic below used the very next day lol. I spent a lot of time talking and watching Leandra from PaperArtsy she is so fab and very artistic and the things she makes from metal are absolutely brilliant I love her stamps and obviously made a few purchases with them, I said hello to the Glitter Girls to they are so very funny love them x
So Saturday had a really lovely day again in my studio, ok ok .................shed, with my good friend Mel making christmas cards not that we made that many to be honest as we spent most of the ohing and ahing over my purchases from the NEC then having a good chat about her holiday as we have not seen each other much as she went away on her hols in half term. So here are the two cards I made the first being basically a copy from the magnolia magazine but obviously as I dont have all their fancy ribbons and stuff a few adaptions lol. The second one did not really come out as I had hoped but its ok its from an online club I have joined to get some new ideas for xmas crafts called UStamp its really great fun and you get to speak to loads and loads of Stampin Up demos from all around the world and they share there ideas I loved the idea of this card with the window but am not sure whether its the buttons or the amount of the trees thats the problem for me lol but will make another one a little bit different and we will see so watch this space.

So am off to Church this morning with Euan as its Remembrance Sunday as his Great Grandad fought in the war I think its important for him to go and give thanks obviously I am not religious at all but Euan loves going to Church and generally goes with his Grandma but I do tend to go at Christmas and Remembrance and Harvest as I love the hymns, how sad am I lol. This afternoon I am hoping to be crafting out in my Studio so maybe you never know girls may have another blog later but please dont hold your breaths xxxxx Take care everyone xxxxx

The Start of My Collection and so much more !!!!!!!!

So Ladies this is the start of my Longaberger basket collection which I am going to be using in my Studio to store my lovely stash obviously it will be a slow process as they are flipping expensive lol but I must say the little bag was a bit naughty as thats not really for my stash oops!!!

This is my small pile of stash that I bought from CTM this weekend only a small pile so not that expensive !!!!

OMG and guess what I got a chance to do some scrapbooking this afternoon using my lovely Sassafrass papers that were in the lovely kit I am so pleased that I actually managed to spend a couple of hours in my Studio I was so excited and it was lovely to have all my lovely stash around me and ready to use I cannot wait to do more hopefully this week although I cannot promise that I will be blogging every time but will do my best.
