New Stash & TV

Evening everyone, I hope you have enjoyed your day. Mine has been pretty laid back - I tidied up, re-arranged some stash, put the clean clothes away and loaded the washer again. And then my friend the postman came, with a lota goodies for meee! :D I've been placing some orders throughout the week on various craft sites and eBay, and I recieved some orders today. Very excited.

First up, a little order from The Ribbon Girl, I got some bakers twine and various ribbon and pins (which I'm sure you will see featured in my up and coming cards) - make sure to check their website out, there is some gorgeous stuff!!

Second up, Stampeezee..

Woohoo, I finally got some Pure Innocence stamps - isn't she adorable? I can't wait to ink her up, and paper piece the umbrella! :D I also orders some German Glass Glitter in White - as I've heard some good things about it. I'm waiting for my little tidy tray to arrive off eBay before I start using it though!

And last but not least (until the postman graces me with his presence again next week) an order from Bunny Zoe Crafts. Another yummy TGF stamp - and old one I know - but I couldn't resist her, shes called Madelynn. I also ordered C.C. Designs Sweet November - Darby and Pudge. I seen this stamp a while ago and had to have it - so freakin' cute!! Amongst the rest is another C.C. Designs - August Honey stamp, some lace, pins and charms and spacers. WooHoo!! I'm also waiting for my personalised stamp, I thought it was time for a new one. It is being shipped from Norway so it will take approx 2-3 weeks.

With me getting all of this new stash I decided I needed a new system in place where by I remember to use the stuff - especially the stamps. So I sneaked a CD box out of my Mams room (empty may I add) in order to store them all until I have used them - at least 3 times! Thats the plan anyway. I will keep the box under my desk along side my box of inks.


About the TV bit of the post title - has anyone been watching The Big Fish Fight on c4?

I think something like this getting aired is fantastic - it is a massive passion of mine after reading the book 'The End of the Link - Charles Clover, and watching the film. It broke my heart. I was a massive fan of fish, shell fish, every sort of sea food, but after that.. no more. The unsustainable fishing practices which take place all over the world day after day must be stopped. Not only are fish stocks being depleted at an irreversible rate, but we are destroying sea beds and coral reefs on a dramatic scale. Rant over - before I get angry! :) That is all.


Thanks for stopping by today. Oh - for those who are interested, I tried out my Konad nail plates for the first time today, and I'm fairly impressed. But me being the perfectionist that I am.. I'll probably be stripping my nails again very soon and giving them another go. I've found that normal varnishes don't work too well. But more about that in the post showing the picture soon. xo


  1. Looks like you had a great mail day today! Don't you just love those? I know I do. :D

  2. lovely stash..the ribbon girl service is excellent isnt it? and i managed to get some heather ellis digis (pure innocence for 50p - £1 ) let me know if you would like the link.
    hugs x

  3. looks like the post man loved you but further to your resolutions, may i remind you;

    1) DO NOT buy as much stash - like paper and stickers and rub ons - use what I have first.
    *Edit* 05/01/11 - Make 100 cards before buying anymore paper collection packs.
    2) QUIT impulse buying!! - Just because something looks pretty doesn't mean I will use it!

    LOL, sorry hun! Looks fun bits though, cant wait to see what you create!



I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
