Shattered but had a Lovely day at Ally Pally...

Well we set off at 7am yesterday morning, I picked Liz and Beryl up en-route and off we headed to London for our second visit of the year to Ally Pally. They'd moved into the Great Hall this time so you had so much more room to move around and lots more places to sit and chill as well. I got everything on my list and a few extra bits. There were bargins to be had but you had to look and compare prices. By the time we left at 5pm my car boot and part of the back seat were full of all of our goodies. My best buy of the day was some thin Jute string. Liz and I went halves on it though we did laugh and wonder whether we needed a reel each, look at the photo! I got it from the Ludiec stand for only £5.50............I couldn't believe how cheap it was and had to look twice at the price. The other photo is of my purchases. Tomorrow I hope to have a little play with some of the new stamps and dies. The next Craft Show I'll visit will be The Suffolk Papercraft Show in Bury St Edmunds on 4th November.

Well Sunday lunch to sort, have a great day.

Ally Pally here we come!

Well it's that time of year again when on Saturday Liz, Beryl and myself will be going to Ally Pally.......The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show in London. Soooo excited, got my shopping list of things I hope to get and anything extra will be a bonus. I'll post a pic on here to show you my purchases. I really look forward to this show in April and September each year, in my opinion it's one of the best in the country. I've actually been crafting this week on and off making cards as my stock has dwindled due to selling lots at the Bramford crop.
Have you checked out the Papermaze blog? Classes and workshops will be starting up again as from October. It's been nearly a year since the fire and I have missed going to the workshops. Lou will be taking workshops on the first Wednesday morning of each month and Wendy will be taking classes on Wednesday evenings, I think twice per month.

Well hope you all have a lovely weekend, I certainly will!

Look where we're going for our hols next year......

Well we've booked our holiday for next year to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, this time next year we'll be on our way home after spending 8 days on a Nile Cruise Egypt. We've said for years we'd love to go to Egypt but having 3 children it would be just too expensive, so now they are older and we can leave them at home Andy and I are off on our dream holiday...............pic taken from brochure. Sooo excited.We fly out on 28th August 2013. We haven't had a holiday since we went to Florida in 2005, so we will certainly look forward to this one, oh the photos to be taken and the pages to be scrapped!
Got a busy week work wise this week. I've typed and printed out one unit of my diploma, got another unit to do by tomorrow night. Will have worked 4 nights this week by Friday and I've training tomorrow morning and assessor to see Friday morning. Glad I'm going no where over the weekend so I can just chill.

Hope you have a good weekend.
