Craft Show - Jan 2013 - Don Valley Stadium

This weekend (and part of last week) saw us packing boxes full of lots of yummy crafting goodies, unpacking them and then repacking what was left on Sunday to return to the store.

You guessed it - we went to the craft fair at Don Valley Stadium this Sunday.

It was a fun day that goes far too quick, great to chat to friends both old and  new.

I forgot to take the camera but I have some pictures from last November.

Although we thought we had most products on the stand, I still uttered the words
'we have some in stock at the shop',
 far too many times.

So my thought for the one in June is, let me know what you need in advance and we will bring it with us (or order it for you.)

Happy crafting.

it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring

A belated Happy New Year to all of you we haven't yet seen this year.

January starts a 5 month long epic of birthdays, both staff and family before we get a break then it all starts again in August.
Paul has just had his birthday not quite an O one that's next year. For some reason both Dorrie and I picked the same sentiment unknown to each other, I wonder if it is our state of mind or a comment on the birthday boy. 

Dorrie used her favorite Tim Holtz Distressed inks and Stampendous Steampunk owl stamp, I used Stampendous' Cardinal birds stamp and my new set of Prismacolor pencils (what a lovely Christmas Present) 
The word stamp says 'It's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring' 

All the products used are available at the shop.

Happy crafting
