Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Tenby and stash.

Well i ate for Queen, country and football team while i was away. Help yourself breakfasts three course evening meals and anything i could cram into my mouth in between so the friday weigh in should be a laugh.
The journey down to Cardigan was plagued with traffic jams so we didn't get our usual two hour stop off somewhere nice and had to make do with an hour in Newtown which is nice but quite small. Our day out on sunday was at Tenby.
I stayed there about 20 years ago and have always wanted to go back so i was made up.It was a lovely sunny warm day too.It's such a quaint place,even the "grot shops" sell quaint grot,lots of camper van and beetle souvenirs, Patrick would have loved it.There was a small pound shop where i managed to find two cards of ribbon with a diamante buckle for a pound each.
                                           St Annes Island, Tenby.
I didn't find any more stash there but we went to Brecon for a few hours on the way home on monday and i found a shop called Emerald arts and crafts.I bought a Kanban stamp set and a small scalloped square punch. There were quite a few more stamps but they were mainly celtic designs, it being Wales and all that.
We left Brecon and after 2 hours we had a tea stop at an old station which had been converted into one of those woollen mill type shops. The pleated skirt brigade loved it but i was a bit unimpressed until i saw................'ello 'ello 'ello, what's this then............PAYPER BOX!!!!! £8.99 reduced to £5.50 per boxfull. Well it would have been rude not to wouldn't it.I know There's a papermill shop quite near to me but this is patterned card,great for boxes.

.That's all they had though, no more craft stuff which i thought was a bit strange but never mind.
 Well that's all for me for now, as you can imagine there's ironing to be done before i can go anywhere near my den.                 Di.xx
