I was so naughty....

....but I needed it all, mwahhh.

Hi Crafters,
A few friends have asked to see pictures of the goodies I bought at the NEC recently but it wasn't until I laid it all out that I realised just how much I had actually bought :/ . Because I am still organising my craft room I had kept it in the shopping trolley since we came back and it looked quite a respectable amount in there but that trolley is like a tardis and look at the pile now...


I needed to replace lots of cardstock, pearls and gems but I think a few stamps and dies found their way in there too, along with ribbons, chipboard shapes, embossing folders, and of course one can never have too much glue, lol. It doesn't include the goodie bag I got from Create and Craft either. Oh well it's only twice a year and I only occasionally purchase things online. A girl has to have crafty stash to go to when inspiration strikes.
We had a great day hubby and I...let me rephrase that... 'I' had a great day, hubby dutifully trundled the trolley so I could look round the stands easily, he is a sweetie and never complains that he is bored. We stayed overnight on the Wednesday so we could be there early and fresh for the day ahead. I enjoyed watching some demos and seeing all the celebs and chatting to Anna Marie from Anna Marie Designs - love her style. I also bumped in to Marianne and her friend Lynsey.

Well that's my confession post over, Santa will not be visiting me this year as I've been too naughty :(
Hope you are all well,

See you soon,

Lorraine
