Had a bit of a nightmare figuring out the dimensions, but got it sorted eventually. I had them written down- somewhere- but no idea where they are now.
In other news, I bought myself a new present- a Silhouette Portrait 2 digital die cutter.
Went with this model as it's A4, so sits perfectly where my old one used to go.
I also used the opportunity to have a go at a You Tube video with the unboxing (below).
So far, we've discovered that the fluorescent lights in my craft room cause a flicker to be picked up by the camera, so while I've got good daylight I'm ok, but as the light gets less into Autumn & Winter, we need to figure another solution. Anyone doing You Tube videos who has an answer, I'd be really grateful.
Last week Twiglet mentioned a Craft Fair being held in their area, and after looking it up on Google maps, I discovered it was only about an hour and a quarter away, so we had a day out on Saturday to meet Annie(Wipso), Jo(Twiglet) and Tilly Tea Dance.
Needless to say, I fully intended to buy one for the wall in my Craft room- then Hubby decided I needed a couple of small ones too to go either side. Lack of symmetry sends him twitchy, lol.
I also bought a Brooch to pin on my backpack, and another of the little sheepy pictures for my DIL's birthday present.
They really are fabulous- I love the sheep!
We had a fab afternoon, we spent a couple of hours with Annie & Hubby over lunch, just chatting away.
This is the wonderful thing about meeting WOYWWers- you are chatting like the old friends you are right from the word go.
Lots of different crafts to see, but this little guy wasn't a craft, he was part of the display from a Photographer taking Disney Princess type photos of youngsters.
This gigantic dragonfly was at the entrance to the Leisure centre, which also had a lovely cafe and a garden centre on the site.
As it was such a gloriously sunny day, the sunlight through the wings was beautiful.
Did someone say Garden Centre?lol.
I'd actually had plans all week to visit a local one on Saturday, as I'd removed some of the stragglier plants from the planters, so wanted something to replace them with.
They had a nice selection here, so that was two birds with one stone.
We are having another day out this weekend, this time to Farnborough Airshow. As we work in the Aerospace Fastener Industry, our company always gets some reduced cost tickets, which they hold a draw for, for all those interested. And Doug won one of the pairs of tickets,so thats what we'll be doing on Sunday.
