WOYWW - Too busy but planning !!

Well not much actual crafty action on the trusty desk this week !

Much Beloved & I were in London this past weekend - my colleagues had given me a gift voucher for a meal out in London for my birthday last year & we finally got round to using the voucher - and made a trip of it !

We enjoyed our meal during the day and the weather was kind, so much so that in the evening we were able to walk from our hotel down to Tower Bridge.
We loved seeing the Bridge & the Tower of London all lit up with the lights of the modern City behind them !

So sadly having been away there wan't much crafting going on this weekend !

On my desk are a few goodies from the 20% off everything in store offer in Hobbycraft !
The stamps were a real bargain - virtually half price & then with a further 20% off them !
Well you can never have enough Alphabet stamps can you !
The seeds are packets that have come free with gardening magazines ... poppies & veggies !

And on the planning ahead front, I do like to make Easter cards - so have been lured by a few bunnies as you can see !!

Last week our Scrapclub went out for our Christmas meal - yes I know its February - but last year we didn't get our meal out until May - so we thought we were doing really rather well this year !!
We all had a fun evening chatting & catching up and it is lovely to have a group of girls to share crafting with - we all like differing aspects of paper-crafting but everyone encourages the others in what ever we choose to do.  Our next club outing will be to Ally Pally Stamping & Scrapbooking Show in April - so pennies need to be saved in the piggy bank for that !!

Have a fun crafty week

  4. Happy WOYWW. I keep saying to hubby that we need to have a break in London. Perhaps this year? I am off to the dentist in Swansea on Monday and may be forced to stop at Hobbycraft on my way home! I am starting scrapbooking classes on Friday. Finally actually going to do a LO! Wish I could go to Ally Pally - one place I have never been. Ali x. #48

  5. Glad you enjoyed your breaking London! Some nice pics of you and your hubs :-)
    You did well in the Hobbycraft sale. Love the little bunnies, they're fun!
    Hugs, LLJ 43 xx

  6. We haven't been to London for years. Lucky you. We're drooling over the Hobbucraft goodies. We couldn't indulge because of our stash buying ban.

  7. Great to get together with crafting friends, it is either early or late for Christmas celebrations but either way you did well. I love buying stuff for my stash, just need time to play with it, hobbycraft sounds like a great place to buy stash.

    Happy WOYWW & Happy Crafting

  8. It looks like fun and crafting are definitely happening in your world. Great job on snagging the bargains. I personally have too many alphabet stamps that I don't use, but I balance it by also having many too many alphabet Thickers that I do use. Glad to have popped by. Susanne #89

  9. Looks like you got yourself some wonderful bargains.
    Happy Wednesday
