Come on then - who's going to fess up the new stash they've received this week???
I'll show you mine if you show me yours!!!...
So, i've not been shopping for ages therefore I've had all mine delivered this week due to me not having been out of the house at all. I've taken a pic of it apart from the promarkers I ordered cos I've put them away - basically it was just some I hadn't got and wanted to add to my collection. I got mine from Joanna Sheen as she has free P&P plus dead cheap on the individual pens as well as the packs of 5 - if you want a great deal - pop over to Joanna Sheen. Did you know they did a gold and silver one - I didn't until I looked so ordered - they're unbelievably metalic and was really impressed. The just a bit more than the regular colours but every stash should have some!!!
Anyway, here's whats been delivered to the Gale household over the past few days - oh and I need to tell you about the swap of the week too so if you're intrigued; read on...
This is (almost) everything i've had delivered - I bet you're intrigued about the books...
First of all here is a mega box of flowers I received from QVC - they're by Petaloo and QVC were selling packs of 1000 of the little lovlies. The choice of colours were brights, pastels or love. I ordered brights and pastel. Then my Mum said she'd share so we had half each - this is what i've got:
There are felt ones, foam ones, glitter, mulberry paper, texture paper and about 6 different sizes. Also, there are a few of my home made roses in here too as this is where I will store them.
Right, these books were 20p each and my sister got them for me from a charity shop - its really hard to find backing paper with wording on - and some of the books I've read probably would have a few steamy bits on the pages so may not be appropriate so I thought I'd go for the classics - they really do look good inked up - something which I'll share with you in the next few days. Anyway when my sister read the titles that were available - of course I said "mais oui"...
These are a couple of my latest colours for my growing collection. I must say that i've found the lavender one to be very pale and worried that the ink was running out on it - so not sure about this one.
Here's an order I received from The Arts of Crafts. The lovely Chrissie from Simply One of A Kind provided me with a link as I'd seen a flower she'd put on a card and it looked so wonderful finished with a stamen in the middle - she pointed me in the direction of this Leone Em punch. The pokey tools... I've just always wanted a pokey tool and had never seen them on sale before so snapped them up. The rings are because I want to make a journal of some kind so bought them while I saw them.
Right for the mega swap of the week. Earlier I said that my Mum shared the petaloo flowers with me - well instead of paying me, she had something that I wanted - infact she's had it two years and never even used it - and probably never would... "so what is it?" I hear you cry...
This'll come in handy for those journals I want to do - and will be perfect with the book rings and some other projects I have in mind. Of course - I'll share them with you when I've done them.
So come on then - tell me whats in your stash this week - and why did you buy it.
Thanks for dropping by, big hugs,
