I hope you are all relaxed and ready for the weekend, quiet day here, Paul's in bed sleeping off nights and in again tonight and the girls are working. Matt has gone to sort out his sheep, he had to do any emergency trip last night as Kevin & Brian (the rams) had escaped through a hole in the hedge and were in a neighbour's garden, eating their shrubs!! He went and bought a bottle of wine to apologise. He managed to get them back into the farm but they were scared of the torch so he couldn't get them into the barn. He wants them all inside now, ready for lambing to start.
So maybe I found your 'culprit' Janet and Maria !!
I have shared a video today, showing g you how to create the 'Gift Bags ' from an envelope that I shared on my blog a few weeks back, I hope you find it easy to follow.

Now onto some craft shopping.....
Brenda you got some lovely goodies, I can see that John Lockwood tempted you into some Gilding Polish in two gorgeous colours and that beautiful 'Papercuts' Die set, I saw a few of the samples and they were amazing! Those glitter papers were so soft and they didn't shed either, such pretty colours too. I love the HoneyDoo stamps that you decided to buy too, particularly that flourish, I can't wait until they get all of the dies in for their different flowers! The Flower Making book from the lovely ladies at Pink Frog Crafts is absolutely brilliant, so detailed and easy to follow, I am looking to seeing you what you make with your new things, thanks for sharing xxx
Margaret you did really well, were where you hiding all of that? Sue's trolley
must be like 'Mary Poppins' Carpet Bag !
You bought some lovely dies, I love the trees, the pink dies (row of trees and street scene) look perfect for Christmas cards, the flower die us really pretty, you will be making flowers to match all of your projects soon, don't use really thick card though,
It becomes too hard to manipulate.
I see you got a load of the 'Essentials ' too, glue, red tape, pearls, 3D foam etc, you'll be
Surprised how much you can actually get through, you will be stocking
Up again at Ally Pally, I'll have to get Paul to hook up the trailer at this rate! Haga, thank you for sharing your shopping xxx
Sue, you were a good girl this time, you bought some lovely things, I love your 'Robin' die, I can see you starting your Christmas cards with this die. I loved the card packs you bought, that blue is a gorgeous colour! You have bought a load of essential items too, I always find that I seem to run out of everything all at once, so these shows are a good place to stock up on all of the everyday items, I couldn't find 'Foam Tape' at the show this time, actually the £1 shops foam tape is ok, it sticks really well, but ours had run out yesterday, I'll have to start on my emergency ration! I'm glad you got a replacement for your 'Pokey Tool' , tell Chris to keep his hands off this one! Some pretty pearls finish your shopping, I haven't seen the "Mei Flower" stand for a while, even it's online shop has very limited range of products too, I wonder if they are going out of business, such a shame as they had the 'BEST' range of pearls in every shade and size!
Thanks for sharing your shopping Sue xxx
Pat, you went from having hardly any shopping by lunchtime, but you made up for that in the afternoon, you got some fantastic things, the 3 'Diesire Create-a-card'
Dies are so pretty, I believe they were a bargain "buy2 get1 free' offer too, so it would have been daft not to buy them all, you got some of that lovely Glitter paper too!
You got some lovely pearlised card too, some pretty glitter Embossing Powders from 'Honeydoo' and their gorgeous 'Christmas Tree' stamp too, I knew you liked it but hadn't realised that you had bought it, mind you we were chatting at that stand for
Ages! You got some of the fantastic £1 scissors, that are super sharp, some pretty pearls too, oh and the Anti-Static Bag, I think your old one and mine must have gone on a trip together somewhere, as we haven't seen them for months, I've been using baby powder with a paintbrush, which smells nice but goes everywhere!
Thanks for sharing your shopping Pat xxx
Well that's just about it from me today, I hope you find the video helpful.
