 Hello everyone,

I'm going to share some new stuff that arrived lately, some were ordered in April 2020...things were pretty rough back then and I had only just retired, it has been a year since I retired and I have loved every single day and so glad finally did it..

So new stuff, phew there was a lot..I'm not going to speak, just share...unless it becomes too much, I may have to say something..

Okay I have to talk already, that was short lived, but these are the greatest containers for my desk top, they hold my flowers, die cuts, sentiments, any little thing I save, and I love them, cannot get more, if I could I would..



I have not even open these until have no idea how to use them so I think a day or so on google or you tube may be in order..

This box was given to me from a friendly neighbor before they left for their new home..

Inside..a selection of cute wooden stamps..

More shoulder shrugging?..

Powders, waste of many the same or so similar..mix them with water, not much chop.


GASP!! again..second set of colours.

Gasp and choke!!

I use the blackboard duster for pressing my stamps in my misti..nice even pressure.

Now I see it all up here I feel so guilty, I have spent so much money..what was I thinking!!..

I know exactly what I was thinking,.. I worked hard and saved my money and spent it..

This was purchased throughout the year 2020 and a bit of it this year, all online shopping, postal deliveries gave me a nervous breakdown and so much went missing in the earlier part of 2020, but wonderful stores reimbursed or forwarded new parcel, so all was well..with most of the stuff.

Thanks for stopping by, now I can delete this folder and make some room in my files..I also had a lovely Nana nap yesterday afternoon and even Holly joined me which was just perfect...and a fabulous quiet night last night...

See you tomorrow..

As you say Chrissy, you have worked hard all your life, so deserve to spend your money as you wish. Crafting has certainly helped us to keep sane, through all the shutdown weeks/months!!!
Looking forward to see the stunning projects you make with all your stash!!
