I hope everyone is well on this blustery and damp august day! I decided to treat myself to a shopping trip to Craft Central yesterday only to get there 50 minutes and 30 miles later to find it had closed down! I was not a happy bunny wasting all that petrol and time and I had even checked on their website before I left and it was still listed there. I thought I'd go to Lakeland and the expensive but very lovely shop in the nearest town only to find that Lakeland no longer sell craft stuff and the craft shop now closes on Sundays! So, it was a complete waste of a journey and so I went the 30 miles home again empty handed. I did take a trip to Hobbycraft though which is only a few miles from my house and bought lots there and then today I went to Osborne Stationers (no relation to me!!), a haberdashery and a charity shop and got some real bargains! I got a handful of lovely buttons for 1p each and some ribbon for 5p, in Osborne's the papermania double sided cardstock was on offer and in hobbycraft I got more 12x12 paper in the sale too. I have gone a bit mad buying ribbons but they are all so lovely! The papermania chipboard letters were on sale in Hobbycraft too so I couldn't resist buying them!
No more spending for me for a while!
