Yes it was exclusive because -well because you've got to start somewhere and I started on Saturday by inviting Emma to join Jeannette and me on one of our crafty play days. No one else could make it but that didn't stop us and we had a great time. I've not had my kit long and I did panic a bit because I just couldn't think of anything to make so I just made what I felt comfortable with -bags-I am the bag lady after all- and a box. There's a few cards too and some Christmas decorations. I don't find those loopy things easy so don't think you'll all be getting them on your pressies.
The SU designer series papers are lovely-double sided, strong with rich colour. I also had to use my favourite of favourites-the jewelry tag punch combined with the tiny tags stamp set. I have a passion for teeny tiny things-think it's the dolls house syndrome.
Jeannette was still bubbling over with conventionitis. If you went and heard some very loud woo hooing it was probably Jeannette. She came loaded with goodies for me. Strictly speaking they were someone else's goodies 'cos she'd picked up the wrong bag so I'll have to wait for the other bits she's stashed away at home. I've now got a collapsible worktop waste bin (beats my scratty plastic bag) a natty bag and a cute stamp with the SU motto -"Love what you do-Share what you love" on it. . She also brought a little easel card for us both to make. It really has to be a big thankyou to Jeannette for helping me as I do have low energy levels-oodles of motivation and ideas but there's very little leccy in the battery.
Just in case you think I have abandoned all my other crafting loves, I haven't, so I've included a card I made for my little sis' birthday using a Craftwork Cards template, foiled papers, Ritzy cardstock and card candy.
In case you wonder why I don't go into a lot of details and fancy stuff just imagine what it is like inside my noddle (that's head by the way). The other day, could have been Friday, I actually couldn't remember the name of the place I was born. It was a surreal conversation. I racked my brains and wished I hadn't opened the subject. It crossed my mind to have a look on Google Earth because I know exactly where it is on the map but felt it might look strange if I rushed from the room and switched on my computer. I knew it began with "C" Oh hecky thump.
DH eventually helped me out of my personal hole. Ah well.
Any questions let me know-just don't expect me to join you when you get a team together to compete on Eggheads (for non UK followers- it's a quiz show).
