Wednesday again and time for the weekly snoop hosted by Queen Julia. Shame on me - whilst unpacking yesterday afternoon (after a brilliant School Reunion Weekend with little sleep of course) THIS was the total tip constituting my desk. I think there's probably a desk there somewhere underneath the cr*palanche (thanks for that expression Debs!) just waiting to happen:(
Art of Craft, North Camp,Farnborough so it would have been just plain rude not to pay them a visit. And even ruder not to have bought anything :)
The orange and black packets were bought elsewhere - we had a trip out to the nearest 'town' and the most 'exciting place' there was Wilkinson's (sheesh!) where I did stock up on some of their double sided foam pads at 70p per packet of 40 (size is approx. one inch by half an inch each). They're quite thin and brilliant for cutting up for decoupage and other things.
Other goodies are ribbons - pink of course, Annabelle's Meadow toppers as the papers are already in residence here, Craftwork Cards Warren the Rabbit toppers to colour (great ones for men in there), rainbow card, gold Glamour Dust for Christmas cards, their own iridescent version glitter dust and other bits and bobs. The newest fad here to try is gilding flakes, they had some terrific samples in Art of Craft (it's truly an Aladdin's Cave) and the staff are really helpful as well, if ever you get a chance to go, DO!!!
It was a great weekend, lovely to meet with my buddies Moira and Angie, and also 'Hi' to Glenis a card maker who I met there for the first time, and I suspect she's a very accomplished one, sigh :(
For less, or much more. mess - just go here to Julia's. I'll do my best to hop about but need to catch up with Pixies Snippets Workshop Challenge to check no-one has been playing with go-karts and also to get ready to fly off to the North of England for the day on Thursday. Wow, the life of a jet-setter :(
