Sorry I went AWOL there for a bit, I haven't had much time for crafting, I seem to have been doing everything but.... working, cleaning, sorting through old stuff I don't need any more, Yawn. Still Ive taken a few bags to the charity shop now, gave some stuff away and binned some proper rubbish so I'm going to treat myself and put aside tomorrow just for crafting!
I'm going dress shopping on friday, how exciting it that! I'm off to Glasgow with my Mother In Law to Be, the only scary bit is we decided to drive as the train was so dear, £86 for us both for a day trip, whereas the fuel will cost £20 max (and the government wonder why we don't use public transport grrr) and Im doing the scary Glasgow driving bit! Eeek! I just have to remember I managed to get all the way to Birmingham and back so as long as I stay calm it shouldn't be too bad. Unfortunately I don't know if my Best Woman can make it as she may have a funeral to go to. Its very sad as its a close friend of hers Mum who died suddenly and having lost my Mum years ago I can understand how important friends are at a time like that.
We've decided on Best Woman as her title though, no Maid of honour here, sounds too much like Milk Maid or Old Maid for us, lol! Plus we've agreed against a night on the town with veils, L Plates and potty's for my Hen night. Phew!
We've also spoken to the Minister and he's coming round for tea next week so its all very exciting.
Ive had a few lovely Crafty deliveries recently from my Birthday and Christmas pennies, The Yummy QK Sunshine which I got as a total bargain .And some stash from local Shops too, well Use Them or Loose Them as the local paper says. Its tough but someone has to do it! The bracket stamps weren't bought locally though, they're from Roundacres Crafts and I can't believe how quickly they came, I ordered on monday night and they were here this morning, wow! I'm really impressed with the new Papermainia range, some lovely new bits at really reasonable prices, and the Cardmakers pack was reduced at Craftspirations so it would've been rude not to, 'specially since its my 'local'.I'm lucky that my Birthday's so close to Christmas, it means if I save my pennies for just a few weeks I can get loads more stuff! Fab! If you don't have any new stuff to use then pop over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for some great cards recycling found or rescued bits and bobs.
