Whilst I'm away working.....

Yes its Wednesday again and I must away to London for work - this time staying overnight as I am going to an awards dinner.

However whilst I'm away I thought that you might like to hear about my day at Ally Pally and a wee peep at what I bought.

Well as you can see from the photos I snapped on my phone, the weather was absolutely gorgeous - the view from Ally Pally was fantastic.  I wish I had taken my camera, but had removed it at the last minute as I did not want my bag to be too heavy.  Anyway I digress.  I arrived about 11ish and decided to have a cuppa first before entering the hall.  I chatted to some lovely ladies who had  been in and were already laden down with bags - (it had only opened in at 10!).  So after finishing my refreshing cuppa, I took the plunge and headed in.  Boy it was busy - it was hard to get near some stands - but it did thin out around lunch time.  So would you like to see what I bought?  I thought  so.   

Ribbon, ric rack and flowers
Some paper pads and journalling pads

Sissix dies and around the page punch
I also got some pro-markers and ink pads!  I was a bit like a kid in a sweetshop because a) I do not have any craft shops near me so very rarely get to see so much stash in real life and b) I have been on a stash diet since April 2010 when my hubby was made redundant. I had money left over from the Christmas budget so decided to splurge - this will probably be it for another year.  I just can't wait for some time to play and already have a number of projects in mind.
