I went to the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza today. Ooh I love it - my very favourite show! Didn't spend too much mainly due to the fact that we weren't there that long rather than anything else. I tell you what though - I only went and accosted poor Kirsty Wiseman on the Art From the Heart stall. Poor love being accosted by a crazed rabid Jozza who was very excited to meet said crafting heroine! Anyhow she was very lovely and down to earth and didn't tell me to naff orff bless her :o) Isn't it funny how you start off these converstations "I promise I'm not a stalker but..." lol
I'll show you what I bought in a minute but first I want to say how pooped I am :o(
Probably doesn't help that I keep forgetting to take my iron tablets (d'oh) so how the devil am I going to perk up my blood? I have got soooo much crafting to do this week and a really busy week at work too so I think I'm going to have to be having some late nights if I'm going to get it all done. Methinks I will be a very grumpy tired Jozza by Friday. I so wish I didn't have to go to work and could just craft all day :o( if any millionaires are reading this please feel free to donate to the get Jozza at home all day crafting/let's buy oodles of stash fund!
Right then here's the stash which is actually not that much really is it? I can't believe I didn't buy more stamps!
I got 10 sheets of core dinations card stock (excited!)
A Little Claires tree stamp
Imaginisce spider stamp
Black ribbon (which I so don't need but I seem to have developed a fetish for the stuff!)
3 rolls of DST (can't live without it)
Christmas sentiment round things from Craftwork cards
Couple of sheets of Christmas papers
Inkssentials pen ('cos I live in fear of my current one running out!)
12x12 pack of Basic Grey papers (a bargain at £10)
Most exciting was the Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock (although I am more than a little bit peeved that several of the sheets have a greasy finger mark on them and one of them has a squashed bloody mosquito on the back of it all dried and awful with it's legs all over the place!)
I bought said dotted swiss from a retailer that has VEXED me because of the above fact and also because the robbing b'stards charged me an extra 50p because I was paying by card and spending less than a tenner! SO boo hiss to the shop who I won't name but there are 2 words in their name, the second of which sounds a bit like camelot!
I feel a bit better for getting that of my chesticles! xxx
