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 :(
...I can hear your desk groaning under the weight Di...fabby looking bits & pieces, your always so busy I really don't know how you keep up...have a great day & thanks for sharing...Mel :)ReplyDelete
Oh lots of goodies there Di, pleased you had a great weekend just enough time to catch up on some sleep before you are off jet setting again. Hugs, Amanda xReplyDelete

I must agree with you. Oh so rude to have passed them by and then to not purchase a little something, or a lot of something....I must agree with you! From the looks of your stash, you were not at all rude! I look forward to seeing all your great creations....Have a most wonderful week.ReplyDelete

Fabulously crafty space.ReplyDelete
Morning Di - I am wondering where you went to school. I went to Aldershot Manor - do you know it? Small world. The craft shop wasn't there way back then. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 14ReplyDelete
Your desk is almost, and I mean almost, as messy as mine, but I don't have any new stash on it unfortunately.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed your trip and I can never visit a craft shop without buying something, even if it is just a pack of buttons or something.
Sounds like you had a great weekend, Di and some lovely crafting shopping too. It just has to be done doesn't it!!ReplyDelete
I can see a pink theme going on on your desk!!!
Hugs Lisax #74

I don't show mine on woyww cos i am too embarrassed!! 4 kids need i say more. love the 'batteries not included' film too, haven't seen it for ages, must show the kids as it was before their time and just know they will find it funny. hugs heid xReplyDelete

Nothing like a desk filled with goodies to play with! Enjoy each and every one!ReplyDelete
Ooh err missus, that's messy for you, I can almost hear you squeaking in alarm about it all! Sounds like you had a brilliant time at the weekend and I really hope your trip back yem gans well man.ReplyDelete
How convenient that your reunion was so close to a craft shop….and it looks like to you made the most of your opportunity to shop, Lol!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that you came back to a pile of bills though. There’s no way to disguise them unfortunately but if you are paying for their Christmas party make sure you get an invite.
No point having it spotless as you always have to start again and mess it upReplyDelete
what lovely stash you got, enjoy your trip to the NE!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had fun.. I agree how rude not to have bought some crafty stash... bargain on the foam pads... great buys.. Hugs May x x x#20ReplyDelete
Sounds like you are having a fun time - enjoy every minute - x JoReplyDelete
Love the cr*palanche, doesn't look bad at all, some lovely piles of goodies to dig into, especially that heap of pink ribbon!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)ReplyDelete
Welcome back and thanks for sharing all your new stash with us! You've done quite well and had a great time and now you're off again. My, my! Have a wonderful time Thursday and, for that matter, all week long! Have a wonderful week! Darnell 129ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a great time! How nice to meet with crafty friends. You are guaranteed to always have fun!
Lots of nice goodies on your desk this week. I had to laugh at the avalanche..... tee hee
Someone is going to be busy....!! Lots of "pink stuff" ther for you Di. Hope to pop by the challenge, but not feeling too great at the moment. Karen 146 xReplyDelete
Lots of great new pink and girly stuff there. Hey, if you want a new use for gliding flakes, check out the link on my blog. You, too, can poop glitter! I'm not shitting you! LOL! Pun intended. Have fun playing with the new stuff. I hope you can find time for it soon. Go carts?!?!? Two cheers for broken bones! whoop whoop!ReplyDelete
mmm lovely goodies! Have lots of fun playing with them all! Glad you had a good reunion and there's been no go-karting in my neck of the playground but there has been some alarming talk about a unicorn on the carousel!ReplyDelete
Mmmm a lovely stash of new goodies there and it would definitely have been rude not to visit a craft shop while you were so close lol.ReplyDelete
Have fun playing with all your new goodies.
Well, I think you were quite restrained at the shop.. it could have been an awful lot worse!!ReplyDelete
I saw your comment on someone else's blog about stottie cakes..goodness that takes me back to our days in Newcastle. Hope you will enjoy yours!!
Hugs, LLJ #1 xx
Oooh lots of lovely new goodies! I'm having to live vicariously on that front since our budget at home has been cut sooo much that I can't really afford to buy anymore stuff. Mind you, not that I need anymore stuff really cause I've got waaaaay too much already! Still, I shall look at your purchases and have a small sigh. Enjoy your goodies!ReplyDelete
Of course it would be rude not too go shopping!! I will be an 8 minute walk from Blade Rubber Stamps next week and if my cousin thinks I am not "popping" in there then......ReplyDelete
Glad you had a good time. Now for round 2 of your jet setting ey!!
Shall I wave off the M4 on my way past on Monday?
Oh gosh, my desk makes yours look tidy, hun! I don't dare enter WOYWWW - my desk is always hidden under a heap of STUFF! Yours looks so interesting - I'm looking forward to seeing what you make from this Aladdin's Cave!!ReplyDelete
