Sarahscraftshed), then me, next to me is Neet(Hickdorums).
Chris( Pearshapedcrafting) is stood by the doorway.
Fishers cards & crafts) and in an amazing coincidence, she had won last week in their Facebook draw to celebrate hitting 3000 likes, so was there spending her prize.
Back at our lunch break for this shot, the lady on the far left is Lyn Hardy, who I met through Neet.
We also bumped into Cara(Craftingbunnies) on our way around, but didn't get a photo at the time.
Talking of coincidences, some of you may remember me making some Christmas Cards last year, using the Tim Holtz mixed media dies & poinsettias. I'd cased the card from Pinterest, and linked to the lady who made it first, Avril, of Mrs B's Crafting Addiction. Lo and behold, our Chris knows her, and she was there on Saturday, so Chris introduced us.
The other really funny part was how many ladies came up behind me, tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I was Shaz, or Silverwolf! Rofl. Ladies who'd been visiting my blog, looking at projects I'd done. That was totally surreal.
So, onto the goodies then.
Some lovely new stencils from Sweet Poppy- the tree one at the back has a distinct bonsai look to it, and as that is one of Ants hobbies, will make a great birthday card for him.
On to Lavinia stamps, and top of my shopping list were the Green Man stamps!
Some lovely fairy houses also dropped into the basket, but that was Hubby.
As were almost all of these. The only one I'd picked up was the Eclectica flowers- Hubby took a fancy to the rest.
These stencils were 50/50. I picked the top two, Hubby liked the two trees.
More Owls. The stamps are really quite large, but there were some gorgeous samples done with them.
Finally, not a purchase, but a gift from Neet. She knows I love my Stampscapes stamps, and brought this with her for me. I love it, that will definitely get some use when I do some more, thank you so much Neet.
Almost forgot about these- some loose stamps bought from Chocolate Baroque. There are some fab textures, and a couple of small stamps that will go well with my Lavinia Stamp for scene building.
Also had a chat with Lesley Wharton, the owner. Lovely lady.
Okay, I'll stop there. I'm sure you will come across more photos of our meeting on the other ladies blogs, and there will be quite a few pics of stamps purchased, I'm sure.
Oh, almost forgot- went to the appointment on Monday, for the results, only to find they hadn't arrived, as yet. They are chasing them for the next MDT meeting, so we have to go back in two weeks. A bit annoying, but to be honest, we almost expected it. A lot of the hospitals have had services downgraded in the Worcestershire area,including our own, and those services put onto Worcester Royal, and that was where I was sent for my scan. They were struggling under the weight even before that, so it really didn't surprise me they hadn't got here. I had expected my Oncologist to have put my appointment to see him off, when I had the scan date for just a week before we were due to see him. Oh well, it is what it is.😏
