I'm waffling again

Morning folks...not a lot of crafty stuff to share I'm in waffle mode.  Did a little bit of crafting yesterday morning....the card for the NEC workshop is done and is meantime pending approval.   Hang on to your galluses folks but the Penny Black DT card is also in the bag....yes I know not my usual skidding in by the seat of my pants this week.  And obviously Mr Sunshine wasn't too impressed with my neck of the woods....he only stayed one day and we're back to dull and drizzly again so I took myself off yesterday to my local M& S for a bit of clothes shopping....well it would have been so rude to refuse their invitation to a special customer event....perhaps the offer of a 20% off voucher had something to do with it.  I've been to lots over the years so how come I conveniently forgot that it's likely to be heaving and hot with lots of pushy shovy going on....not my idea of a fun's that old "I'm getting a bargain thing" that we fall for every time.  I arrived home absolutely cream crackered with stuff I don't probably need and couldn't even muster the energy to try everything on...but what do you bet...some of it will be going back.  There's something to be said for the easy peasy crafty shopping online experience...browsing with a cuppa...a few clicks and hey presto the goodies arrive on the doorstep next morning...that's my kind of shopping.
I'm off to get packed up for my demo and workshop tomorrow at The Papeterie and as it's a Christmas In July Crafty Day I think I need to join in the spirit of the occasion and dress accordingly...NO I will not be going as the Christmas Fairy...crikey don't want to scare the customers away.  And just to ensure that the party goes with a swing...I will be joined by my lovely and very talented buddy Debbi....Letraset's UK Product Coach who will be demo-ing  Xmas Gorjuss Girl stamps...Sugar Nellie Stamps...Promarkers with the new ultra-fine nibs and some Spellbinder Nestabilities Techniques and a little birdie tells me that Charlotte has fantastic offers on CHRISTMAS GOODIES all day and there will be festive treats...what more could you want...
so if you live nearby...jump in your car and join us at The Papeterie.  In the meantime I leave you with a couple of sneaky peeks...
Catch up with you all tomorrow for another challenge at Penny Black Saturday and lots of exciting things to share with you over the next few days.
Hugs Kath xxxx

  3. Morning Kath, we didn't have much sun either, but it was dry so that was one consolation. Mind you I had to go to the dentist, thinking everything ok. Then the bombshell was dropped,a hole. Yea a great hole in my bank balance I had not planned on. Have a great fun day tomorrow. Hugs x ChrisB

  4. Sounds like you got it all under control. Have a great time tomorrow. Hugs to a lovely Buddy. :)

  5. I heartily agree, plus once you start online shopping regularly u realise jus how expensive the shops are! Altho arriving on the doorstep next morning would be a novelty, our postman doesn't come til at least dinnertime!

  6. Oh the things we do that SEEM like a good idea at the time, and then turn out not to be! Shopping at a SPECIAL EVENT being one of them!

    Yeah, stick to crafty shopping Kath . . . much more calming!!!

    Can't join you tomorrow . . . I am booked on 2 classes at the other end of the country at The Glitter Pot! I'm sure we'll both be having fun though!

    Hugs, Sandra

  7. Wish I could join you but hey ho I can't!!!!!! x

  8. Wish I had the day off to join you tomorrow Kath but I had last Saturday off to babysit and I'm having next Saturday off to babysit! Looking forward to seeing the pics. Have a good day.

  9. Got to agree with you about online shopping - so convenient...too convenient sometimes :) But, arriving the next day, here in South Ayrshire ... uhuh, it just doesn't happen. Goodness knows what the PO does with the mail... I think they must read/censor it first! Enjoy your day tomorrow. Elizabeth x

    PS: Sun is breaking through the overcast sky in Ayr now :)

  10. More like Autumn here in Wales & the builders descend on Monday to demolish the lounge, remove the ceiling & somewhere we need to put my husband's 1000 books - Buddy pls come & advise.
