I got a Craft Room Multi Tool,Circle Cutter,Embossing Boards,Embossing Tool & Tool Case,Card Toppers,Pro Markers,and a Forever Friends set containing stamps,paper,glue,brads,pens,pencils,embossed cards,stickers & card toppers.

I also went to Hobby craft today as i had some pennies to spend. As my store isn't a huge one, they didn't have masses of bargains but i got some lovely stuff quite.
The punch was 1/2 price so cost £2.24, the ribbons were 99p each, the stocking stamp was 29p, small wooden angels 75p, bag of paper flowers 69p and the bag of Christmas gift tags were 99p

The pack of green papers were £1.75

                                  Gorgeous pearlised papers were 15p a sheet or 20 for £2.00
I could of spent all day looking round but managed to drag myself away. I think i got some great bargains and cant wait to get crafting with them all.

Thats all for now, take care and happy crafting, Kate xxx

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you all had a fab Christmas & boxing day, got some lovely pressies and of course ate too much, its a Christmas tradition.
I got some great crafty pressies as well as some very unexpected non-crafty ones, 2 big packs of pro markers, a craftroom multi tool, some gorgeous card toppers, and a brill forever friends set including stamps, embossed cards, stickers pens, ink pads, ribbons, and some extra embossing boards, tools and tool storage wallet for the craftroom. My biggest surprise was from my darling hubby who brought me an ipod touch and docking station so i could listen to my music in my craft cupboard without having to have a pile of cd's hanging about in there, i seem to have been very spoilt.
Have you been online sale shopping yet? I have to admit i have, and am awaiting delivery of some gorgeous goodies from and and am off to have a lookie in hobbycraft soon as i still have some pennies to spend. I will post some piccys of my fab crafting chrimbo pressies when i get back.

Have a warm and cozy day, keep safe and happy crafting

2 More Sleeps

Only 2 more sleeps till Santa hopefully brings us all some lovely crafting goodies.
Today has been a busy baking day. Me & mum have made mince pies, jam tarts & lemon curd tarts, and between us, hubby and the kids managed to eat all the mishaps.
When my nan was alive it was always mine and her job to make the pastries, and now she is no longer with us me & mum used her pastry cutters and baking tins tro make our pastries in, so she was with us in her own way.
Took some of our lovely pastries round to my great aunt, who's 89, and had a cuppa with her and a good ole chinwag. Her husband died last year and she gets lonely so we visit at least once a week., she enjoyed her treats.
Still no piccys to put up as the light has been terrible to take piccys in, and i didnt manage to get any of the furbies in the snow as we only had about 4" and they didnt want to play in the garden.

I hope you are all keeping well and warm, happy crafting

We Have Snow.......Finally

Well its finally got to us. We managed to get the final bit of food shopping done today and picked my mum up, she stays with us over chrimbo and new year, so we are all sorted out. there was about 5mm of snow when i got up, but now its coming down hard now in big fluffy flakes. I hope to get some piccys of my dogs playing in the snow if its gets deep enough.
I hope everyone is keeping nice and safe and warm and that you are all enjoying your crafting.

My 1st Post

Well, here's my 1st post on my new blog. Don't really know what to say except hello and welcome, I'm all new to this blogging thingy.
I hope to be able to put some of my card creations on here and to get all of  your comments on what you think of them.

Its been very cold here today ,-6, but we still have no snow. I really want some snow so i can go in the garden and play with my beloved furbies (dogs) Byron & Lilli, they love the snow, especially catching snowballs. Maybe we will get snow on Christmas Day, that would be great.

I hope that SantieClaus brings all my crafting friends the crafting goodies they are hoping for and if not, well there's always the January sales :D.

Thats it for now, keep safe and warm xxx
