I'm back from my hols with some new stash and candy

Thanks to all those of you who left me comments over the last 2 weeks whilst I have been away on holiday. I hope you enjoyed my daily posts which I had scheduled. The above is some of the crafty stash I bought. Here's the punches I bought.
And here's the scrapbook stash I bought.

We had a great holiday in Florida. We spent the first night in Orlando and then travelled to Key West for 3 nights before coming back to Orlando for 10 nights. We had a suite in Key West which was fabulous and was opposite the beach where we walked one evening and watched the sunset. We did some Christmas shopping in Orlando, hubby bought 2 pairs of shoes and several clothes. I only bought 3 tops and a pair of jeans, spending my money on crafting bargains instead as you can see.  I just have to find somewhere to put it all now, lol!

We did a behind the scenes tour at Disney's Magic Kingdom, which was  a 2 mile walking tour and fascinating. We also spent time at all the Disney theme parks. The weather was gorgeous. Now I'm back to lots of washing and ironing. You know you're back when you have to go food shopping at Sainsburys, which we did this afternoon. I've missed visiting you all and obviously 4 of my followers weren't happy as they have left me but the important thing is my faithful followers are still here.

I'm off again on Wednesday until Saturday for a Crafter's Companion workshop in Darlington so please bear with me until normal service is resumed. I couldn't go away and buy myself some lovely goodies without bringing some back for one of my followers so if you would like the chance to win this.........

then check out my candy page where I shall shortly be posting this candy.
