On Tuesday night Create and Craft launched the new Cricut Expression 2. It was at an amazing price of £299.99 for club members so of course I had to have it. I am now considering selling my original expression to my friend Sheila.
I also bought the 'Whispers watercolour pens' and 'Big Bear ' stamp set from Hobbyart.
Then on Wednesday I bought Crafters Companion's new Humphrey's Corner cds and stamps.
Crafter's Companion have a double points weekend so I bought 9 of one of the Humphrey's Corner stamps to give to my craft club members as a summer gift. Just hoping they come by Wednesday as it's the last class until September. I also bought on that order the coredinations paper packs from Crafter's Companion which were 2 for £50 (£42.50 to gold members of Crafter's Companion). I now only need 217 points to get by December 2011 to remain a gold member for 2012. Next double points weekend they have will do it I think.
I am finishing a quilt I made to raffle for funds for my kids craft class at school so we can buy some more crafting materials. When it is finished I will post the photo on here.

This is the new sofa I ordered today. I cropped, flipped and pasted the original photo I took in the shop to see what my sofa would actually look like. Below is the original photo of the full sofa in the shop. I didn't have room when I got home and measured but they can take seats away to make it the size you want.

Today I bought Complete Cardmaking magazine no.30. The card I made for the project is on the front cover(rose double easel card on the right of the cover). On page 26 is my project. There is an instruction missing which was in the original instructions, which they forgot to include. If you bought this magazine and want to make this project you need 2 mats 10.5 cm x 10.5 cm to place on the easel sections at either side, round the corners. You need these just before instruction 3.
I am currently making more samples for Lynda and Cup Cake Crafting.
Last night I made 3 very large baby cards for the 3 babies that were born to work colleagues in the last week. Need lots of room for everyone to sign them.
Have now booked all the elements of mine and Lilian's trip to the Summer Crafting event in July. I am hoping we get more information nearer the time with instructions on the venue, etc.

Lilian and I have just booked on the Summer Crafting Workshop in Doncaster with Nancy and Stephanie. Always wanted to go to one of these big events and now we are........
Can't wait, just need to book hotel and train which we will do in the next couple of days.
Will start saving too as there are also 2 days of shows at the racecourse to tempt us.
