Afternoon dear reader/s
Hope you are all well.
Sorry I'm a bit late but I was out meeting a crafting buddy this morning - we went to Hobbycraft and I darn near succumbed to their special offer on a Big Shot at £59.99!! but restrained myself until I could do some research so all I spent was £2.99 on some collapsible eye needles! Lilian spent much (MUCH) more than me but hey - I can cope! We strolled next door to Tescos (as is our wont) and spent an hour in Costas drinking tea and the lovely Lilian treated me not to a mince pie but to a gluten free chocolate brownie - it was delicious and sticky - just as they're supposed to be.
Back at home I said to my hubby about the restrictions on my QUICKUTZ (it only takes 4" x 4" dies not a mm bigger!) and how I might try to sell it on e-bay and buy a big shot instead, he didn't seem averse to the idea as he is the one with the e-bay account! So, I spent a few mins on-line and found a new Big Shot for £52.95 with free P&P!!! Yee Haa indeed so quick as a flash I bought a die to go with it that I wouldn't have been able to buy yesterday! Now I just have to hope it will arrive before Christmas - a Grand Calibur would be nice but . . . . and at £94 needed a lot more justification!
Anyhoo, hubby and I have put up the twinkly outside icicle lights this afternoon too AND I've delivered the cards to my neighbours so I'm feeling smugly self righteous here - anyone want to make an offer on a Quickutz Revolution with extra cutting plates and a metal carry case?
I'm going to make a cuppa and hit the newly tidied table of craftiness so feel free to check back later and see how I'm getting on.
