I do get some funny looks when out shopping....

I thought I would show you some pics of a little shopping spree I had last night!!
I went down to our local retail park after work and got a few things that will keep me occupied over the coming weeks!

The pic above is my haul from hobbycrafts, the little baskets are an easter make i am going to do, the beads are for some bracelets i want to make - just simple glass beads on an elastic cord to bulk up craft stalls i plan on doing this year! the flower ribbon was brought to be used with a die i have my mind on. The black ink was brought to try with my QK letterpress that arived today! Can't wait to try it and of course i will tell you what i think here! And the red polka dot embellies i just could not resist!

Some socks, again i have a gift idea for these so watch this space! These were from a shop called B and M homestore, i am not sure if there are many around but its a bit like a wilkos

The rest of my haul is from a shop called Home Bargains, it is a great little shop that often has some great goodies for making pressies and altering.
Jelly beans, my boss has aske me to do soe party favors for his daughters birthday so i plan to use these for those!

Choc coins...always come in useful when making gifts!

These were a bargain, 29p!!! I plan to make them into covered choc bars for easter!

Choc lollies, again i plan to transform these little beauties into a easter gift!

And candles (these are what i got the stranges look for - why would anyone want so many candles!?) I have a little gift idea for these so watch this space!

Well that is me all shopped out for this month i think...better get making!
