Well, this week has been very busy at work, actually, the last month has been busy! Anyhow, I forgot all about the GNPE this weekend, only last night saw something on a blog referring to it, so this morning did my normal chores and then made a bee line to the Show. What a buzz! I went first to LOTV stands, I wanted to see Bev Rochester, but I could not see her anywhere, so went ahead and bought my first LOTV Stamps and die cut images, I have seen Bev use them and show them on her Blog, wow they are lovely and so many to choose from! I must have been there for at least 30 minutes at the stamp section, I ended up blowing half my budget on LOTV, 10 stamps and 12 die cut images, its so hard to get a good idea with everyone taking photos of the samples and also trying to shop, I have heard of Road Rage, wonder if there is such a thing as Craft Show rage!!! I went round the show and saw Sheena busy beavering away, then stopped at Anna Marie's stand and had a chat with her, such a nice Lady, got stash from her.... then stopped at Flowersoft and chatted to Noreen, thanked her for such lovely TV shows, and such a great product and also the wine CD which always goes down a treat! Oh yes also stopped at Pokadoodles stall, just so busy did not get to say hello there. I got some lovely fine glitter from a sea of colours and soooo much glitter, I could not resist. And lastly got myself some tartan ribbon for my own Christmas cards, I have always tried to have a bit of tartan around at Christmas, years ago I had a large amount to tartan gift warp, and ribbon, even down to the coffee cups ... red tartan! really should be using the Cornish yellow (nevermind) The only downer was trying to get through that traffic light at the end of the road coming out of the Show grounds - enough to give you road rage!!!
So I hope to do some crafting tomorrow with the strong winds outside, I will have to stay in and craft!
Thank you for reading my blog
Have a great weekend and happy crafting
