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

17p Stocking fillers!!

I've been out and about looking for bargains. I needed some beads so i went to Abakhan and got 3 packs of glass pearls, one packet of 3 toggle fasteners and a little storage box. It came to £16, not a bargain! Now i remember why i stopped the jewellery making,lol. Next i went to Primark and bought 3 long sleeved t.shirts and 2 vests for the same amount. Deffo a bargain. Then i went and mooched around Wilkinsons because i had a brainwave for some notebooks.These notepads were 17p each (29p in Tesco if you don't have a Wilkinsons), so i scuttled home to alter them.
I had the "Liszt" idea when i was sorting my den and unearthed the manuscript card i got from Payperbox months ago. Don't worry, there's loads of manuscript papers on google images. I printed the "shopping liszt" in curly cue font size 32 using My Craft Studio. They looked a bit bare so the peel offs came to the rescue. I thought these were all i had left but found more after taking the photo. As if these weren't enough of a bargain check out these for 11p!
Apologies for the not too brilliant photos but yesterday was so dull all day. (They look a bit clearer if you click on them). Still at least Blogger has made the uploading easier, must have had complaints.      Thanks for looking and see you soon. Di.xx
