My NEC Shopping Spree.......

Hiya folks!

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days but I've sold my house and things have been truly hectic...... I now have just four weeks to prepare as the sale is going through very quickly and it looks like we'll be moving on December 10th!!!!! So when do I fit in Christmas, lol?!

Also, I've had a busy weekend as I spent Saturday at the NEC and Sunday recovering! It was just the best day on Saturday and meeting up with my blogging pals was PERFECT!! I love to have a good chat and a catch up and it makes the day so special...... sending big thanks and hugs to Jo, Chris, Kim, Heather, Kim and Tab for an amazing day! And I had the great pleasure of meeting Mina and Dena too and they were both such lovely ladies..... Mina you have a dirty laugh girl and Dena you have an such an infectious zest for life.... I hope it won't be the last time we meet!

I was also lucky enough to bump into Marlene, Jacqui, Bev, Lou and Andie...... hello ladies, it was lovely to see you ;o) Have I missed anyone out? I really hope not!!

So the pictures you can see are the stash I bought on the day..... lots of yummy things I wanted and a few extras I saw too! I managed to pick up a daylight lamp for £25 which I thought was an absolute bargain!!

Not sure how much of this new stash I'll be able to use now because the house sale might just take over my life a tad..... but it'll all be waiting for me again when I'm sorted ;o) I do have a couple of weeks before things get really mad so maybe you will see one or two more creations before then.

Must dash now...... take care and enjoy your evening!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

I don't know what I'm doing here - I've seen all your stash first hand!!
There's just one thing I'm jealous of and you know what that is - BUT - do not go looking for one for me you really are going to be too busy with your house.
Have fun and enjoy your stash if you have time LOL.

Chris said...

What! Well I don't remember seeing a lot of that on the day.... the small bag I saw must have been hiding a MUCH bigger one :D! Right up my street too Mrs and thanks for a brilliant day, can't tell you how much I enjoyed it. Really happy for you about the house but I don't envy you the four week time scale, you'll do it though 'cos you have to. Big hugs and just off to look at some rentals :D Chris xxx

Laila said...

First of all, congrats on selling your house. Well, atleast I hope it's a good thing ;o)
And then WOW, you've really spoiled yourself with soooo many yummy and amazing goodies. I hope you'll manage to do a little bit of crafting before packing your whole house down in boxes.
Hugs Laila

Hi Tara,
I found you! Just popped by to say 'Hello' & drool over your stash. Can't wait to see what you make with it all. Hope you get chance to play with it all between the packing! It was so lovely to meet you at the weekend. Will definitely keep in touch, not least because your blog looks full of fabulous inspiration, but also because you seem rather lovely yourself :~)
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

I am so jealous, especially of those Sizzix dies and punches!! I've never heard of Mica Magic before - that sounds interesting...
