Be quiet! This is a quote from my favourite Vampire film: Love at first bite. I liked it because the vampires weren't scary. But there's always been something strangely attractive about vampires I think......oooh anyway, the reason for the vampires is that I went to Whitby yesterday. It's only 1 hour 15 mins from us and just a nice distance for a day out. But like a vampire can sniff out blood, I can sniff out a craft shop at 500yards. I am talking about Daisy crafts, which is wall to wall goodies. You need to call in if you are in Whitby. I got some bargains, totted it up and it was £36 worth for £11.75. I got Wild Asparagus paper and the stamp set, 2 lots of Laura Ashley paper packs (including velvet paper) and some Smirk paper to go with stamps I bought and haven't really used. I also bought a few little ornamental goodies.
As an aside, have any of you seen the blog called It's al a fiddle fart?Please take a look at it, it has some amazing ideas for crafters who want to do a few things other than cards. The lady who makes these is so talented and the blog is such a good read. Anyway, she picked up on the American blog whose owner has started this project where she fills a jar and decorates it and leaves it somewhere for someone to find. It's like a RAK really. I think it's such a lovely idea, so I had a go yesterday. On Fri evening I filled my jar with a Yankee candle tea light, a hand creme sample, a butterfly badge, a smal flower soap, a poem by PB Shelley and some butterfly confetti. I added a bow and ribbon and a gift tag and left it on a wall in Whitby, yesterday. I hope it makes someone smile.
Looking forward to the Easter break, nice short week next week, so time for crafting, friends and fresh air.
