Sharing some photos of my lovely new goodies I bought yesterday. Starting with a couple of paper pads and some of the stamps. Usually I buy more dies but this time I bought lots of stamps. Yes there is yet another snowman stamp! Keep reading for more.
Stocking up on basics at great prices.
Just a few dies this time. The owl one I bought for cutting felt as I am really enjoying sewing again.
Some trees to decorate and embellishments.
And these are the things I am most excited about. Very different for me. We were so impressed by the samples and demos and I really want to give them a try. It was so hard to choose and as you can see I bought quite a selection. Some of them will be useful all year round and of course I had to buy the snowmen stamps. I am hoping to have a go this afternoon with them.
It was the first time Crafting Live have had a show at Peterborough and it was very much as we expected. Not as big a show as Doncaster. Lovely venue, free car parking and only £1 donation to the British Legion to get in, though I did win some tickets from a blogging buddy. It was 50p donation to charity to the cloakroom. We managed to see all the stalls with comfort. There were quite a few stalls with rummage bins, always good fun. A nice amount of visitors, not so busy you couldn't see the demos, like some shows. Many familiar stalls were there and we managed to spend out. I heard several people were disappointed with the NEC last week, visitor numbers were way down and a friend who goes regularly said she wouldn't go again, too expensive and too many companies no longer doing it. One stallholder I talked to said it was now too expensive for her and she won't be doing it again. Maybe smaller shows are the way to go. We certainly had a lovely day out and it only took 2 hours to get home.
