On with the show this is it!

I've been to the Exeter Westpoint Creative Stiches and Hobbycraft show today with my talented friend Sue (yes yet another Sue! LOL)
We had a fab time wending our way around exhibitors stalls......and a nice variety of things to see for a change....not too much of one thing....although there were to be fair quite a number of knitting and wool stalls to choose from! LOL
Sue's passion for all things material and yarn was catered for and mine for inkyness was too.
Now.......would you like to see my show stash?
Well of course you would.....who does not like a nosey? HOL ;)

Spent far more than I had intended (don't we always!) but can't take it with you and my fixed rate mortgage comes to an end real soon and the fab news is I'm going to be that little bit better off each month! Things are looking up ;)

My most prized buy was the Scor-it-all........I saw it and went OOOooooh! really loud as I have been wanting coveting this quality scoring tool since forever.....and this was a bargain believe me. Kraft resist paper from T!'s lush.
A foam stamp that spoke to me......something along the lines of buy me, buy me!!! ROFL
Blank card top up for the Xmas card marathon that will have to start soon. Some masks which were another show bargain, ink refills and pad and my first ever Distress stain.
The new 7 Gypsies they are fabby!
And last but not least a couple of sets of stamps from Inkylicious....who kept my friend enthralled with a stamping demo whilst I did some retail therapy on the stall! LOL
Finished the day on the way home with coffee and cake at the garden centre just down the road.
I hope to get some play time tomorrow.

  6. Loving the look of all your new stash

  7. You will LOVE the Distress Stain - to me it totally makes more sense than the pads! Liking your purchases, will be fascinated to see the stencils in use..I pick them up and put them down almost every time I craft shop!

  8. Lovely lot of shopping Sue! The first distress stain of many, I'll bet! ;o) x
