Craft stash

What a beautiful day, can't sleep, it's far too hot, so after half an hour of trying to go back to sleep and laying there thinking about my new craft stash downstairs waiting to be played with, what things I hadn't bought and wished I had, I decided to get up!

I had a wonderful day craft shopping at Newbury yesterday. My friend Julie & I make a special effort to get up early, (we both like our weekend lie-ins!) so we can fit in a whole day of shopping. Here are some of the goodies that just had my name on them!!



And here are some more.....



Those of you who know me, will know I have been dithering about buying some Copic markers, (Stacey - I did it! Hope you got lots of lovely stash yesterday.) I've got Promarkers but just have this urge for Copics which I could no longer ignore! I bought set A, to have a play with, watch this space!
I met the very talented Bev, (I've been a follower of her blog for ages, so it was lovely to meet her) who was watercolouring a beautiful Whiff of Joy image with distress inks, she made it look so easy, am not so sure, but another colouring medium that HAD to be tried so I got some of those too. Thanks Bev, I'm sure I'll be back for some more, inks, stamps and charms....

BTW, is there anyone else out there still waiting for their Magnolia summer kit, everyone I saw yesterday has already had theirs, am I the only one still waiting? :-(

Am off to play now, will be back later with some creations...

I love the willow with cookies stamp, it has been on my wish list for ages (trying to be good as going on hols soon!) and a scor pal, they are fab. Copics yay, I have a few and they mix well with pro markers. Oh, I wish I could have come :0)
