A Very Good Day

I hope you ha a good weekend.

First I would like to welcome my new follower Ghazala.  You can visit her blog here

Yesterday, after a bit of a hiccup I went off to the NEC with a couple of friends on a coach trip organised by the local craft shop.

We had a great time and here are some goodies I bought.  I also bought some basics and a much needed  new trimmer.

We had a good lunch and some sweet treats and when I got home feeling really tired my hubby made me a cuppa then we had a Chinese Takeaway dinner.

When I opened up my email later in in the evening I was very surprised and delighted to find that I was one of the lucky winners on Kath's blog.  Thank you so much Kath for your generosity.   What  an exciting end to a wonderful day!.

I'm off to my craft club this morning and to see a friend this afternoon so may be a little bit late catching up and visiting.

Mm think you were incredibly good to only get that much Barb, but looks very interesting indeed, and what fun to go with other crafters, very clever way to do it.

It sounds like you had a wonderful day Barb and I bet you can't wait to have a play with all your new crafting goodies. Congratulations too on your win, lucky you:). Wishing you a happy crafting week X X

Hi Barb...looks like you had a good time at the NEC...even if your plastic didn't!! I look forward to seeing your creations with your new goodies. Out of interest what trimmer did you buy?any recommendations please? I have had mine (a rotary one for years) and recently it cuts a bit off kilter. Thought it was me at first but I think the blade may be worn (bit like me...an age thing). Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments. Enjoy your new goodies...or will they (just like I do) be NBUS next year? I do hope not! xx

Cara said...

Glad you had a good time and picked up some fab new stash, did I see the Baa humbug stamp set in there? Such a fab set. I love starlight paints too, even if my washing up bowl now has a sparkly bottom! Enjoy yourself this afternoon, Cara x

Great haul Barb, you lucky girl! I see you have some of the 'Starlights' by Imagination Crafts, they are totally amazing. I even put a very tiny amount in a mini mister and top up with water, give it a good old shake and you have yourself the most amazing 'shimmer spray' . . . there's nothing that can compare with the shimmer from them! Congrats on your win too! Have a great week! Hazel xx
