Good morning everybody.
I do hope you all enjoyed your weekend, did you do anything fun?
I had a kind of spoilt weekend, as I went to a Crafting Live show in Doncaster, England.
In case you have never heard of this before, it’s where you have a huge amount of craft companies
selling their products. Often they will have “Show Only” prices too,
so you can pick up some great bargains.
You also see vendors that showcase their products via the craft channels on tv,
such as Dreamees, Phil Martin, Kanban Keith, Debbie Moore & Anne-Marie Designs to name a few,
so this is a total bonus.
As you can imagine, your spending can get out of control, if you are not careful,
so I always give myself a budget. This is where I stock up on essentials, as well as a few crafting treats.
Here are my goodies from this weekend, and although I had a budget of £200,
I only spent £145. Even then I purchased all the cardstock I need to make my nieces wedding invites,
plus all my chritmas projects, so I didn’t feel to bad.
The picture on the left was the create and craft goodie bag costing £25, and the 2 magazines were in fact free gifts.
This little lot was purchase from The Dreamees, think I had a bit more from them,
but for some reason haven’t taken a photo.
This little lot was from Any Crafts A Pound
and my cardstock was from a couple of different suppliers.
Phew what a whole lot of crafting goodness. I think it’s time to go play, but first I
must thank my lovely husband, for not only taking me to these events but for allowing me to spend
so much money.
I love you David & thank you.
Until next time…..Happy crafting x
