WOYWW 317 with French goodies !

Wasn't sure whether to join in this week, things have been bit hectic - I have started to attend a course intended to help me control my blood sugar but there is an awful lot of recording to be done in the first two weeks! That, along with school run duties and the garden fete we had here at the weekend have taken some of my time too! Still, best keep busy eh!!I will try my best to visit as many of you that I can but bear with me please!!!

Julia does all the work linking us up each Wednesday at her blog The Stamping Ground and I really am looking forward to catching up! 

France was wonderful but I won't take up desk parading time with those - they will be on the post after this and the previous one here!

So, what's on my desk? As promised in my header... some of my French craft goodies!
 Some of these were from a lovely art supply shop in Tours - 'Dalbe' if you are heading that way - they have quite a large craft department too! (They are part of a chain so are probably all over France)
Most of the goodies came from 'Cultura' in Poitiers - although it is on a small retail site out of town it has a really good selection! I think they are a chain too!They sell books, mags, toys, childrens crafting, cake decoration stuff, fabrics,etc My SIL has just started crafting so we came out with rather a large bag each! 

So that's it….hoping things calm down a bit…!
Thanks for looking, Chris

Ohh la la, magnefique! Which is about all the French I remember from my time in Belgium 45 years ago (give or take). You do have a lot on your plate. Just don't forget to breathe (and craft). #12

"Fibralo" tin looks a bit like my Caran d'Ache - are they the same/similar? Or are they a different product altogether. Love the ginko leaf and the flowers that are with it - great shopping.
Glad you are home safe and sound.
Hugs, Neet 18 xx
