HobbyCrafts Exhibition 2011 at The NEC in Birmingham

I thought the amount of bags i had looked bad but in pictures it looks even more!
This blog post is just to show you how naughty I was at the NEC - at least 70% of my spending is Helens fault!
above we have gems, and stamps from LOTV I am not a stamper but have had my eyes on these!! They will fit nicely in my nesties!

next up is my finds from the crafts for £1.00 Stall, clock mechinisms (sp?) christmas papers, tape etc
One lot of tape and the stamps are for my mum and we will also share the chrimbo papers too!

Uh oh more stamps i dunno what came over me!! and some really pretty papers

These little bits fell in my back pack in the sewing hall, scrummy ric rak and some pom pom makers, i have a pattern for a pompom scarf and these will make it super easy!

Various papers....mum i have put some of these in your bag too x

this wooden house was a fab find on the decopatch stall

along with the wooden tray, destined to be my new work in progress tray.... but at the mo it is a work in progress lol!!
i got a selection of papers and this little wooden lizard that i am going to decorate for my mum for her bedroom!

More wooden things from Paper artsy along with dies and matching stamps and some fab card backed metal which i can see me getting through rather fast!

I also got a snazzy bag free with my decopatch stuff that fold up into.....

This!

Some beads, they are kinda furry, i always make some quick bracelets for the school summer fair so these will be great!

And lastly a few patterned papers!!!
Phew!!!
I think after a few stressful weeks i needed a little shopping spree!!! and i well and truely had one!

Oh my God Lisa, I didn't see you buy half that stuff!! The only thing you can blame me for was all the Paper Artsy stuff you bought ..... because I was taking rather a long time deciding what I wanted ..... as I put stuff back, you appeared to be picking up more!! LOL ..... I wish I'd seen the clock mechanisms ..... you hid them from me!!!!! And I love the wooden screens ..... I may have to go to the website for them ..... as I am thinking desk calendars!!
