WOYWW 351 - Goodies to show

Oooh! I've been away too long - 351!!!!! Away from where you might ask - Julia's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - that's where! The chance to catch up with folk around the World who are brave enough to show their desks - that's where!

Now I know this may be cop out, as my desk today is not like this, but I thought you might like to see the goodies I bought on my outing to the craft show at Leigh at the weekend.
Inkylicious was the main reason for my wanting to go - I wanted some quote stamps, but then you can see just one or two more little treats! Oh! and the African set? Hubby's choice - big hint for a Birthday card I think!
What was really great was the first person I saw was Neet, so we had a good catch up in between her doing her demos!

Quite a lot going on around here and I am getting out and about more and as long as I don't do any heavy lifting I am definitely on the mend!
If you saw the little pile on my desk yesterday you will see I decided to use a different card for my little portrait.
Quick film review - went to see 'Brooklyn' yesterday a brilliant film about early 50's USA and Ireland, good acting, a lovely story and great photography.

Also, if you haven't yet seen The Revenant I would heartily recommend it, although when hubby first suggested it I wasn't sure. We saw it before I had my op as a final outing before I was wrapped up the cotton wool for a week!

Looking forward to visiting desks today!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Neet said...

Do hope your trip to the show did not tire you out too much but what a great stash you got. Love the DH choice stamps - now I might want those myself.
Hugs, Neet 4 xx

Ooh, some lovely goodies there. I do love a good quote stamp, especially if the font is eye catching.

Love all the goodies you bought, and the card is beautiful.
We have asked our son to get The Revenant on Netflix for when we go over.

I hadn't realised you were in for an op, I'm glad you're mending well. And what better way to recuperate than going to a craft fair, especially as you saw the lovely Neet too. Have fun with your new stash :-)
