Farnborough Craft Show at "FIVE"

What a good day and a great venue light, bright and loads of room. I have not been to this show before but it was a good one. There were lots of stands but not so many as usual according to the organisers. Credit Cruchitis!!!
Although we didn't take any there were lots of classes and demo's and they had organised rooms for them so unlike Stitch and Craft Show at Shepton Mallet you would have been able to hear the tutor!!

There were not so many special offers as would have hoped for at a show but even with some careful shopping I still managed to spend a small fortune :-(
I got a lot of Tim Holtz items of course including some of the circle acrylic elements which I haven't been able to get elsewhere. An Australian lady I was talking to told me about the new Tim Holtz Grungepaper, ohh that sounds great, the same properties as board but thinner and it will cut on the Cricut, cant wait to get that one :-)

I found a lot of stamps and items for my latest passion Altered Art so I have a bit to keep me going for the next few weeks. Here is what I bought, I especially love the little Maya Road Townhouse it is so cute :-)

Look out for Stamps Away, a huge range of good price clear stamps Wholesale Site you can look here and fnd a shop selling them

Clear-2-collage from Butterfly Kisses, these are lovely clear stamps and well priced the new webshop is due to open so keep watching for that. They also make back and front stamps in tasteful designs, no builders bottoms here!! :-( thank goodness
