What’s in My Shopping Basket …..

Fizzy Noughts and CrossesDominoe jelliesScrabble jellies
Look at these sweets from Asda for 82p a bag …   they are just too brilliant!  They would be a lovely present in a jar for anyone who plays Scrabble or Dominoes!
Picture
As I am sitting here typing this up …. I am thinking about making a Compendium of Games using one of these plastic organiser boxes …… I’m sure I could find a few more sweets with a games theme like jelly snakes …. for snakes and ladders, leave it with me,  I will show you the finished results in a week or twos time!
Hello kitty Stickers Asda
Also from Asda were these Hello Kitty stickers (£1 a pack), not sure what I am going to do with them yet, I will leave them on my desk until I have an “Ulrika” moment.
Accessorize Stickers
These are the new Accessorize stickers in the shops at the moment (£1.75 per pack).  The penguin ones are going to be brilliant for Christmas cards and the birds and owls are so on trend and cute, it won’t be hard to make a few cards with them.
I also spy that Poundworld have some of their Halloween stuff in ….. the only things that caught my eye are packets of large foam ghost and pumpkin shapes …. but I am thinking what I would do with them before getting my money out.  The pumpkin shapes would look good on either side of a one of my Quickutz Silhouette gift bag/boxes ….. hmmmm

Rhubarb and custard... yum!
I really can't wait to see what you create - I love the way your mind works... shopping with you must be what could only be described as "an experience".
*lol*
