My Glitterpot Goodies

I had a fabulous weekend away. I stopped at my friend Sarn's house for 2 nights and we went to The Glitterpot on Saturday morning to have a crafty session with some fabulous friends from our cardmaking forum.

We all get on so well together it is like one big family. I have met some of the girls before but the majority were new faces.
What a great place to meet them! The shop is stacked with gorgeous stuff. More stamps than I have ever seen in one place before and loads of other items.

One of the nicest things is the shelves with tons of card samples and they  let you take photos of them, even if some blokes in the shop think you look like nutters for doing so !

These are all the items that I purchased. I had saved up money from my birthday especially for this trip and went over slightly (oops!) but was very pleased with my purchases. I had specific items that I wanted to get, most of which I did but one of them I couldn't get. I think I more than made up with it with the other items though!

I didn't have much opportunity to make cards over the weekend. We intended to do some on Friday night and there was a powercut at Sarns house for 2 1/2 hours. It was so funny as we were making a coffee and literally just as we said we were going to craft the power went. The timing was impeccable LOL. It was a nice chance to have a chat so it wasn't the end of the world. I made 4 cards at the Glitterpot which I will upload soon and then Saturday night we were going to and we were chatting, swapping stash and Sarn stamped some images from her fantastic collection for me (thanks honeybunch xx) The time just dissappeared and I was quite tired anyway and had a long drive the following day.

I've done 400 miles and was really proud of myself for driving such a long way. I had the new  Prodigy Cd on repeat and was happy as larry driving and would have no hesitation to do it again.

The best thing about the weekend was meeting up with someone who I get on so very well with and has become a wonderful friend who is a fantastic person to know. I am very lucky indeed to have met someone who I get on so well with ad love to bits.
