All worn out

Tired but happy girlie tonight - been to the NEC Hobbycraft show today. Didn't think it was as busy as normal but that didn't stop me spending more than I should. Managed to pick up some Indigo Blue gilding flakes (scrummy stuff) new Lili of the Valley stamps and some adirondack inks - thinking I should have another go with my brayer having watched the demos on the Lavinia Stamps stand. Stood for ages entranced while Ali (of Create and Craft fame) demoed how she uses masks on the A1 Crafts stand - amazing work. Also managed to do a make and take on the Ali Crafts stand with the lovely Carole - it was a lot of fun.
After all that excitement I then had to go to Parent's evening at school but all was good, told daughter is working mega hard and will hopefully go above expectations in some subjects.
Right off to get a cup of tea and put feet up.


  1. Sounds as if you had a brilliant day and congratulations on your daughter's results. You must have walked out of the school with your head well up in the air.
    Hugs, Neet x
    ps tute up - hope it's ok

  11. Hi, Thanks for your comment...just have to say...If I had my time again I would go to Falmouth to do a degree. A really beautiful place and the tutors are really switched on and very approachable. Also loads of money is being spent on the facilities. We spent ages of time travelling around looking at arts unins that didn't demand a foundation year and Falmouth is by far the best!

    Hope that helps
