Well, it's been a while since I posted any non-crafty pics. :)
Nothing exciting has really happened this week, I've been working from home since Tuesday as I still have lots of work going on. But Monday I managed to pop into TK Maxx in hopes of finding some of the new AC products reportedly doing the rounds. No crafting stash at all in my TK Maxx local (which was very unusual) but I did see these fab pigeon holes:
There's no where I can put them, but they were awfully nice looking!
Tuesday night I popped over to my mum and dad's for pancakes - the last Pancake Tuesday in my mum's old kitchen. :)
Can't beat Nutella for a sweet pancake. :D My savoury favourite is Jambon-fromage from my days in Grenoble. Yummy!
So aside from the crafting I've also been enjoying some telly and reading a new book, which I finished in the very early hours of this morning having woken up at 2 a.m. and was still wide awake at 5 a.m. when I finished said book. Then I watched some TV on amazon prime on my iPad and finally fell asleep at 6.45! The lie in did not work out so well... but I'm hoping I can make it until this evening before drifting off.
Especially as I now have these lovely items arrived from Sarah's Cards ready to play with this weekend:
Got to love a month off from council tax and the water bill as it allows a little selfish spending. ;o)
So a little show and tell:
Some lovely packets of Basic Grey Basics enamel dots. They are just lovely colours, especially loving the kelly green and aqua combo, and the seafoam in with the navy. :)
I decided to take the plunge and purchase some more of the Oh Darling collection by Crate as I've loved using the papers from this line I already have, and fingers crossed the quality will be fine. I went for the 6x12 stickers (includes mini alpha stickers), the ephemera pack, the chipboard pack, and the journaling cards - I looked at these to see how much was really about kids/little girls and most of the cards are really versatile and will work with other everyday stuff. :)
A little restock of some of the Crate papers, plus the Styleboard journaling cards for my collection, and a set of teal alpha stickers by Elle's Studio that I absolutely love - you get 300 stickers on the sheet and the colour is just perfect - a bit less blue than in the pic above. Gorgeous!
And finally some more papers and stickers.
- 12x12 alpha sticker sheets by Basic Grey - think this is a great option for extra colours - 6 alphabet sets to a sheet and a good size for pocket scrapping.
- A selection of Basic Grey Mon Ami papers and the 12x12 sticker sheet - shame there weren't more embellishments in this line - just stickers as far as I could see.
- A couple of sheets from Basic Grey Capture - love the blue and green one - great for spring!
- And a sheet from MME Now and Then (navy stripe) and those lovely hearts from Elle's Studio. MME paper is so expensive these days that I can't splurge on it especially if the other side isn't something I totally love. But I think I'll get a good few cards from that navy stripe sheet!
Anyway, time to get the stash sorted into its new home and grab some lunch before starting my playtime. :)
