After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......
OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

What's on My Desk Wednesday - Bargains from HobbyCraft
My mate Lisa’s enthusiasm is contagious, while I was at work the other day she was texting me with all her HobbyCraft bargains, how cruel was that? I had to wait till Friday when I finished early to see if she had left me anything ……. ! http://craftfairy.blogspot.com/
I thought these wooden plugs would be good on the drawers of my Tesco Advent House.
My only criticism of HobbyCraft is that they put a lot of bargains in very large “bargain bin boxes” – I could rummage, but they were so deep and full that I was frustrated that I might miss out on something fantastic, and I am not really sure that the assistants would have been pleased if I had hoisted a lot of stuff out and put it all over the floor enabling me to delve deeper
Lisa got these bargains too. I wanted the stickers (£1.99 reduced to 99p) when I first saw them, but I ermed and ahhed at the price, but reduced to 99p I snapped them up. The ribbon I just loved when I saw Lisa’s and I managed to get a reel of pink and two of red (89p 2m reel).
The Making Memories alphabet glitter die cuts (£3.49p reduced to 99p) will come in very useful for personalised cards and I plan to use the Making Memories School Packing Tapes (£3.99 down to 99p, they were reduced again after labelling) for “End of Term Thank You” and “First Day at School” cards.
I have also picked up the metal words up many times when shopping in HobbyCraft, but six words for £3.49 seemed expensive, £1.99 is a much better price! The ribbon, all 25m of it, seemed a bargain too, but perhaps it was a shopping faux pas as it is “pulling ribbon” it should make cute rosette type bows, but I don’t have a clue how you do it!!!!
Ten tassel favour bags (£4.99 reduced to £2.99) is another good bargain, it works out at 29p a bag ….. BRILLIANT – especially when filled with these chocolate hearts.
This paper was not in the sale, (£2.99 for pack of 6 x 6) but I just had to have it, the colours and patterns are so lovely and a change from some of the “pretty pretty” ranges. It comes from DoCrafts and I am hoping to make some really lovely cards with it in the coming week. I also bought some of the alphabet sets that go with it.
