Yesterday I spent the whole day craft shopping at Ally Pally what bliss. Had saved up birthday money and anything I could scrounge so I could have a good spending session, started off really well at LB Crafts picking up the new paper artsy stamps and one of the dies, some texture paint and anything else I had to have, got to the till, whoops nearly a third of the budget gone already, but it is my fave stall so I knew I would not be able to be that good on it, Leandra is in Paris this weekend, (which sounds interesting event wise, shall have to find out more about that, perhaps we can have a blog coach trip next year), so Linda Brown and Linda !! were demoing, left that till the end of the day to watch, had spent all my money (tend to take cash as much quicker to pay on all the stalls) but ended up having to spend a little bit of my overdraft on a few must haves after this demo and Linda Brown even kindly gave me the bit she had demoed for me, I was well chuffed with that and I got a paper artsy brooch for spending a certain amount, I cannot of course divulge the amount, LOL.
We then mooched around the event, trying to collect bargains where we could, one of the stalls was selling five packs of Pro markers for £5, what a bargain, which my friend snapped up, she is however more restrained than me and only bought two. Forgot to mention, met the lovely Rusty Cage at the event and hooked up a couple of times during the day and boasted about our bargains, Rusty found the pro markers first and five arty wooden stamps for £10, got their later on and couldnt get the ones I really wanted, (the ones Rusty got, grrrr), but did allright. Also got some Debbie moore image packs for £2, and the £1 stall buy 12 items for £10, got some clear squares some jeweled embellishments, a ruler, a tin for altering and the Laurence Llewyn Bowen dvd and book, even if its rubbish cant say no for a £1.
