Best Medicine - Creativity Direct

Yesterday I have an e-mail out of the blue from a company called  http://www.creativitydirect.co.uk/ introducing me to their website …
Now, apart from my Decopatched kitchen table I have not done anything vaguely creative or to be honest been that way inclined, however although Alex didn’t know my circumstances when he contacted me, his e-mail has been the best medicine I could have ever had!
Once I started looking at the website I almost felt like the “old me”, getting excited about all the wondrous things they have and working out what I could do with them ….. so as a thank you to Alex I have put together a few of my most drooled over items and hope you are as inspired as I am…….
How cute are these angels?  £2.40 (inc VAT) for a pack of 8 ….. I can see them on my wooden domino gift tags already!
And these metal reindeer are mine!!!  £3.60 for 4 is a bit pricey, but for a special “man” card at Christmas they are gorgeous!
Among the Decoration Materials/Wooden products, these Doves of Peace are also a must - £3.90 for 10.
And who could resist this papier mache cup??? I am thinking Snowman Soup here!! (£2.10)

….. or what about this tray of cupcakes (£7.50) ?
I am not a great one for card kits …. but I could see the potential in quite a few one the Creativity Direct site …. there were a couple of unusual ones which, when coupled with a few of my own embellishments and paper would be ideal for making a quick “batch” up.
These are just a few of the things that caught my eye,   I have no personal experience of the company and just have put together this post because I liked what I saw and the prices seemed quite  reasonable, see what you think.

The wooden bag looks pretty amazing too. Thanks for bringing these goodies to our attention.

Great to see your post, you are still in my thoughts. Like this website a lot but only use it when there is free P&P as the postage is so high. Hugs Bee

Laura said...

Thanks for this Helen and pleased you are sounding a little more cheerful. had a look at this lovely site too but was a bit put off by the postage - it was more than the items I was going to buy - think I will register and wait for free postage too!!
take care
