If you are a regular follower of my blog, you will already know that I suffer from Social Phoba. So going to places like this can be a bit (or, to rephrase that...a lot)...
for me, but I stealed myself, and with my fab mum by my side, I went. I did have a few wobbly moments, but at the end of the day it was...
And it was great to bump into friends, old and new there. One of the new friends was the lovely Linda from Linda Simpson Crafty Piece of Heaven, who was on the Hougie Board stand with Kay Rutter, and she is also part of the admin team over at Cards Galore Facebook Group. Thank you for being so lovely Linda, it made it sooooo much easier for me. You don't realise what a big step for me that was xxx
Anyway, now on to the fun bit. I had been saving up for weeks and weeks, knowing I was going and I must admit I had great fun spending it :) And here is my lovely crafty stash:
I can't wait to get crafting with it!!! My mum got a few bits and bobs too, so there are so many new toys to play with... My only disappointment was that Lili of the Valley was not there I love Lili of the Valley. One of the hardest part of the day was not spending all my money on the Inkylicious stand. I could have spent all day (and all my money) at that stall. They have so many gorgeous things, it's hard to pick. I wanted then all :)
Well, I'm off to play with my new craft stash
