Tutu tantram

Below is a pic of my daughter, Yazmin, dressed in her party outfit, all her friends were going out to celebrate one of their 18th birthdays and the theme was coloured tutu's. I made the tutu after she said she wouldn't buy one and asked if i can make one for her, yeah no problem i said.... ha. Luckily i turned out ok and her friends loved it and one of them even said she didn't believe that i had made it, she thought Yazmin had brought it from a shop, now thats a compliment seen as i only finished it thursday night and they went out on friday night.

shopping expedition

today i went shopping with my sister,kath. she asked me the other day and yesterday we arranged for her to pick me up at 10am, well i set my alarm for 7.30 thinking thats enough time to bath, get dressed and do some housework before i leave, no chance, i woke up at 9.15, rushed for a bath, got dressed had my usual coffee and cigarette then it was time to go.

we went to the sugar and spice shop, pinnacle crafts and artbase, all i can say is wow, i felt like a kid in a sweetshop, never been to any of these shops before but am hoping i will go again. they were all overflowing with gorgeous stash which i will admit i bought loads of, it would be rude not to i thought.

below are pics of all the lovely stash i bought.

this is all the lovely stash i brought from the sugar and spice shop which was the first port of call. bargain of the day was the pack of 20 sheets of the whitewash 12x12 card, half price at £4.99 and a huge pack of scallop card in lots of colours for £9.99.

this huge and very heavy pile of stash was bought in pinnacle crafts, the bargains in this shop were the 3 packs of co-ordinating kits for £9.99 each instead of £19.99 each, i got then in pink, teal and blasck and white, they are full of papers, card and loads of embellishments. ohh and a huge pack of patterned paper for £9.99, ideal for layouts and cards alike.

and last but not least was this pile of stash from artbase, note the basic grey stamps with the birdcages on, i had been looking out for them everywhere and now i am the very proud owner of a set, woohoo.

what a great day i had and a huge thank you goes to kath and her boyfriend andrew who drove us there.
