My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

24 March 2013

A Bit of A Spree & A Special Day

Good morning everyone - sorry I haven't been around for a while, have finally sorted my PC out to a point, but it's taken a while and after I did all that My darling Husband has bought me a new one for our 1st Anniversary!

I can't believe this time last year we were married, it's gone so quick and what a difference in the weather too! We had a gorgeous hot sunny day!

So yesterday I met up with my bestest blogging buddy Debs at the NEC Hobbycrafts show.  We had a great day and spent lots of money and had a good old catch up.  We were both surprised how quieter than normal it was, which was great for us as we managed to get round all the exhibitors without having a battle on our hands.

Here's what I bought:


Umm quite a lot LOL, but I can't wait to get into my craft room in the school holidays and start to get more creative.

Thanks for popping in, I'll be back later with a card!
