So, I ventured out to Happy Stampers at Port Sunlight yesterday. It's a lovely friendly show with lots of smaller exhibitors as well as the big names. The only downside is how hot it gets in there, not great when you have your own tropical moments going on already!
I was a good girl and took cash and stuck to my budget. I could have spent it all at the PaperArtsy stand though, as it was over half my budget was spent there. I couldn't afford to take advantage of it, but they had a fab offer of buy any four stamps the same size and get a fifth free. I bumped into a few blog friends too and it was great to be able to say hi to them in person and catch up.
Apologies that I haven't been able to visit all your blogs this week, my neck still isn't great after my procedure the other week and so typing has been problematic. Hopefully I'll manage to catch up with you all soon. Have a great week x
Happy Stampers is a lovely day out! I see you popped by the Uniko stand - I don’t know if I was behind the desk when you came by. Sending you a virtual wave from home and hope to put a face to your blog persona next time at Happy Stampers! Best wishes Lindsey xReplyDelete

Sorry to be late visiting Cara as I'm just starting to catch up. I didn't realise you had had a recent procedure. I do hope you'll be feeling much better.ReplyDelete

I'm sure we are going to see some super projects with these when you neck is better.

Hi Cara sweetie. So pleased you had such a good time. I went to Newark this weekend. Saturday was workshops and Sunday was the sales day. I know that there were several of the companies came from Port Sunlight to Newark so I imagine they are shattered by now as some didn't get to us until early Sunday morning. Naturally I managed to buy some lovely new stuff and can't wait to see what you do with all your new goodies too. Have a great crafty week but take it easy too, Angela xXxReplyDelete
It was good to see you at PS Cara and I think you haul looks fabulous. I look forward to seeing how you use your goodies in the weeks to come. I took cash too and stayed within my budget - it's amazing how things mount up isn't it? I hope your neck is feeling better by now.ReplyDelete
Wow look at all your goodies, good for you. I hope your neck improves quickly Cara.ReplyDelete
Hi Cara, I hope your neck is feeling better and heading to the craft show didn't stir it up on top of the procedure, a lovely haul from the show, I have plans afoot to head to the nearest one to me next month, it will be the final one there as they are heading on to a bigger and further away venue :-( Have a great time playing with your new goodies... MeganReplyDelete
Ooooh that looks like a fun haul, can't wait to see what you create with it all!ReplyDelete
Hope your neck is on the mend x
Great haul, I wished I could have been at the show, should have planned better and gone with you!!! I LOVE paperartsy, I am about to have a spendy spendy on their stuff. The little Zini's are so cute! Looking forward to seeing your makes with your new stash. I have a shop in NYC called The InkPad and my crafty friends gave me a very large voucher, so next week when I get home is going to be fun. CxReplyDelete
