We are very busy at the moment - as it's raining we are inside playing ............
The story goes like this .........
I have heard folks talk about this small papercraft fair held at the local Motorbike Museum. I knew there was one coming up in July, mentioned it to PJ (who immediately thought 'butterfly stamps') and so off we went last Saturday.
We split up as soon as we entered the room, which was large and airy, and wandered around bumping into each other and sharing what we had so far. To be honest the fair was larger than I thought it would be, there were no major companies, and it felt like I was just visiting local craft shops - which some stands were!! Once or twice we met up at a stall and had a natter but otherwise .............. we shopped ....... then went for a coffee and cake (which we won't do again as we found it rather expensive for what it was, but that is just our opinion as the restaurant was rather full).

with a few inks thrown in!

We had a wonderful time, will go back next time mainly to watch the demos. We were soooo busy looking at what was for sale, we missed the demos and names of the stalls. We did find a local, well 20 miles away, shop which we will visit at a later date .... just for the looksey you understand!!
So, today, we are at our desks, indexing (trying out) the stamps and dies. Can't wait to start creating, maybe later in the week as I really must get on with my 'window boxes'. The guys have been asked to sort out the fencing now so my boxes MUST be ready for the 'new' fence. I tell you, this loco works will be so posh soon!!!!
Have a good week, I will visit as many as I can and thanks in advance for visiting me!!!
