Crafts In Evesham – Forget Me Not Crafts

I am still slowly finding my way round Evesham …… especially when looking for new/different/inspiring craft materials ….. the town has a Home Bargains where it is either famine or feast for me creativity plus a pretty good The Works …… but as of yet (????) not a single poundshop of any description, how will I cope when I eventually move????????
Forget Me Not Crafts EveshamHowever, despite my pledge to be more frugal and cut down on crafting materials, I have found myself mooching and availing myself of some festive papers and embellishments from Forget Me Not Crafts in Bridge Street in the centre of the town.
The shop has a bit of everything, (see link below), from dies, stamps, embellishments, papers and cards, to name just a few. My favourite part is the “Bargain Baskets” section, where I have managed to find lots of “Craft For Christmas” packets containing wooden and resin embellishments from snowmen, to Santas, trees and stockings from only 25p to 65p …… exactly what I needed for my mini printers tray Christmas decorations (above)

I also treated myself to a Craftwork Card Candi Pad which came with  pack of matching Candi, not my normal thing at all, perhaps a little lazy, but I thought I could also add Glossy Accents and different sized flat back gems to the Candi, and I think the designs could, work mat and layered with the Papermania papers (to the side) ….., but as yet,  I haven’t had the time to play, quelle suprise!!!
I just couldn’t resist the pack of Papermania 32 x 12” x 12” Craft Christmas papers, although some of the paper’s are quite festive, there are also quite a few that could be used at anytime of the year, but again, I am afraid it’s a case of actually knuckling down when inspiration strikes and time permits ….. so you may have to wait till next Christmas for any results!!!!
Anyway if you are ever passing through Evesham it’s worth a look …….

The shop you found sounds great - certainly worth a visit, anyway. Looking forward to seeing what you create with your new papers and embellishments (even if I have to wait until next Christmas. he he).
