NEC Stash

I had a FAB time at NEC, wasnt just the stash , it was the whole event, started by chatting to Nigel , create and craft, watched a demo and was on TV asking can we have create and craft 24hrs on freeview. Christmas band playing in the background.

I then wandered around the show, special thanks to Silhouette who spent a good 15 minutes showing me all the silhouette can do. I bought two sets of sketch pens, but the other products I`m definately going to purchase. OH was with me so maybe idea for him for my xmas presents, but he was too busy chewing their sweets which they kept giving him.

I bought a few things, but alot of things I didnt get as I`m lucky to have loads of craft shops near to pick things up.

Being a member of MSE i`ve become very cautious with my pennies and am constantly asked wheres the best price for??? Do you find this??

I also spent a bit of time in the Art part as I love painting. I did leave the exhibition before the end but that was because my conked out body wouldnt allow me to do anymore, otherwise I would have stayed until chucking out time.

Heres some of the purchases, I did purchase quite a few books and magazines and I havent photographed these.

Apart from the Silhouette pens and everything else, the gold and silver promarkers are brilliant. I`ve only photographed a couple of each item, but I bought several packs of each thing, because I know what I`m like, my usual saying is....I wish I`d bought more

I`ve wanted these for ages but couldnt justify the cost, so when I seen them and they were in my budget for the day, I just had to have them

I love backing papers, I have quite a collection, must use some.....I bought a few stamps as well, although i`m not bery good at it, my new years res, is to stamp more and improve. And the wooden embellishments are for a 50th Anniversary photo frame I`m working on , has anyone else noticed you cant buy them anywhere? and i have two 50th wedding anniversarys next year.
