A fantastic couple of days

Hi everyone, I've had a great couple of days with my best mate Sue. On Friday we went to the Summer Crafting Workshop at Doncaster Racecourse, also accompanied by Sue's daughter Kathryn (my daughter Rachel's best mate). Kathryn was extremely lucky at the workshop and won a fantastic bucket of craft goodies which must have been worth over £200!. We got a goody bag included so here's a couple of piccies...

 Today we went back to the craft show, also accompanied by my daughter Rachel. Here's a couple of piccies I took...

 My daughter Rachel has a love of Giraffes, hence the photo. I thought I'd take a photo of my stash, but I couldn't fit it all in one photo! Oops...well I have been saving up for months...

 I got some fab bargains, including a Marianne treble clef die for £2.99 and 8 rolls of ribbon for £3. I managed to get some more hot fix gems and pearls too...can't wait to play. I've bought mica powder for the first time and loads of stamps...can't wait to have a go! Anyhow, hubby has started talking about taking me to the NEC so I better start saving up again! I'll need a mortgage if he takes me...he's a big softee...

I'm hoping to get a chance to play tomorrow cos I'm having some laser surgery on my eyes on Tuesday, so I'm not sure how it'll affect my eyesight. I'm have a YAG laser iridotomy to reduce the risk of acute glaucoma in later life (something to do with narrow angles)... so hopefully I'll be back soon.Happy crafting.
