I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth but I have been otherwise engaged. After a couple of weeks in Florida I decided to repaint my craft room and it has been in pieces ever since lol. Whilst all my stash was in boxes I had loads of ides for cards and was a bit frustrated that I couldn't get to my stuff and when I finally finished putting it back together, yeah you guessed it my mojo decided it had to wait to long and went on strike lol.
I did manage to go to a craft show at Taunton and also Newbury but didn't really buy much at either. I did buy a spinner for my stickles at the Taunton show and must say I am very impressed with it. They had two sizes 18 and 36 and I decided to get the 18, I rang hubbie as I thought I had about 12 sets and he confirmed I actually had 22 so the 18 would be too small lol, even though in the picture I looks half empty.
You can just about see the deep raspberry colour behind the spinner this is the colour I eventually went with. I originally wanted a cream and chocolate colour scheme but after painting three of the walls cream the brown didn't look so much like chocolate....so it was an early morning trip to the local B&Q and a colour I wouldn't have normally picked but I must say I really like it, reminds me of red berry cooler from Costa.
I have also rearranged my wall cupboard and taken away lots of the little boxes as I found I never looked in them and placed my punches so that I can see them and hopefully use them more.
