There are not many craft shows (or indeed craft shops) down here in the West country so last weekend we had a Coven outing to the Shepton Craft fair.
I didn't buy much (in fact most of this actually fitted in the storage box I bought!) but what I did buy were items that I know I will use.
The storage box was only £1, perfect for storing my colouring pencils.
The light weight air drying clay and memento ink are replacements as I have run out of mine.
The Vintaj metal embossing plates were TOO good a bargain at either £2 or £1 each as were the resin blanks at £1 each and the TH mini distress pads are lovely bright colours that I don't have and know I will use.
We were lucky enough to enrol into two make and takes: the first was Powertex
where we made mini canvasses
The other was glass foiling where we made these sun catchers-and got to play with soldering irons-what's not to like!
I know the internet sometimes makes things seem much closer (skyping my family in NZ, buying from the states etc) but I also remembered how small the crafting world can be as I bumped into a couple of friends (waves at Kay) and Morti albeit for a short time (as I was doing the class at the time), but great nonetheless.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend
