Craft Show Goodies

Last month, I travelled by train to Sydney to visit a huge annual Craft Show.
For most of the trip there, I kept telling myself I was not to buy any new junk stash,
as my craft cupboards are groaning at their doors.....but....did I listen to myself????
No, of course not!!! Come on, now be honest, you've all 'been there', haven't you.

The 3 small dies were all 50% off, the nesting dies were $5, and the embossing folder 
was only $2! I have used the Spellbinder Tool-In-One, and it is brilliant. A few months 
ago, I fell in love with the Sweet Lullaby die set when I saw some cards made with it 
on a blog. I have not used it yet, nor have I used the flower-shaping tool kit.

Like all of us, I love a bargain...the Penny Black and Kanban stamps were 
reduced by 50%. One stand had some beautiful cards on display using the
toppers, and although I have rarely used toppers, I thought they would
be handy for some quick cards.

Some pretty papers, ribbons, vintage toppers, and 'berries', completed my
purchases. Although my paper collection could rival any craft store's, I just
could not resist the stunning Wild Rose Studio pad...The only problem I had, 
and believe me it was a problem...was choosing only one. At one stage 
I had about 6 in my hands, and played 'Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo!

In addition to all the above goodies, I succumbed to temptation last week, and bought
quite a few Lili of the Valley stamps while they were 'On Sale'. They all arrived 
yesterday, so I can't wait to have a 'crafty play'.

Now I have confessed my naughty crime of 'splurging' to you all, I had better trot
off to the kitchen, and finish preparing dinner. 

Until next time,
Hugs, Jennifer. x
