What busy week, but hasn't it been good to have some sunshine? (in the UK at least!)
Julia's round up of desks is taking place today at The Stamping Ground and on my desk today is my purchases from my trip out with friends Sarah and Helen to Happy Stampers at Port Sunlight.

I realise now that there have been some escapees as I also have some stencils and a new Visible Images set of stamps! 
I wasn't sure whether I would like the Infusions from paper Artsy or how they would compare with my beloved Brushos BUT they are so different and I now wish I had bought them all!!
My lovely friend Helen bought me a fabulous new water mister too - Thanks Helen!!

They have such brilliant names too!
Best of all about Port Sunlight is that you get to meet up with friends…….especially special WOYWWers
Of course you know Neet, Shaz and Doug and it was great to sit and have lunch with them - see the sign behind us?!!!

I really didn't take many photos at the show - too busy taking it all in and chatting!!!

That's it for now, we are enjoying a break at the minute so hope I can link with my phone!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Tons of fun goodies Chris! I'm so jealous of all these amazing craft stores you go to...we don't have craft stores here. Online ordering only, which really isn't the same. Those IndigoBlu powders look fabulous, can't wait to see what you make with those! hugs :)

Neet said...

Thanks for finding Shaz and Doug for me - good to have a meet up, wish we could have more people from WOYWW there - maybe next time ...
You had a much better shop than I had - I talk too much but then it is part of it, meeting friends and passing the time of day.
Hugs, Neet 5 xx

I've seen this lovely pic of the four of you on Shaz' blog...what a lovely happy photo! I'd love to meet Neet one day 😃💖. Meant to say how much I like your hairstyle too, it's really funky and suits you a lot!
Glad you had a great time at the show, you got some good stash there 😊

Brilliant, Chris. A great shot of the four of you - and yes, what an appropriate sign!!! Glad you had such a good time at the show - some lovely items there on your desk. I like brushos, too - hadn't heard of Infusions - hope you get on with them.
Take care. God bless.

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Chris, I see you got some great stash! And I managed to get my coffee and cake too, lol. We stopped at the Hillsboro memorial behind the hall, and I spotted the garden centre!You have me interested in those Infusions now,naughty lady! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Ironic that I've never met any of you, yet I immediately knew it was Shaz, Doug, and Neet who joined you at the craft show. Gosh, you bought a LOT, too, my stamper friend.

Sandy said...

Wonderful goodies and I enjoyed the picture!

Stacy Sheldon said...

It is funny, I did know all the smiling faces :) love the loot that followed you home too ~Stacy #50

Lisca Meijer said...

Wow, you got quite some stash there too. You guys had a whale of a time it seems. Yes, it must be wonderful to meet blog friends. Neet and Shaz have also published photos of you four.
I just looked at your spray mister with recognition. I have one exactly like that, only it's red.

Happy WOYWW,

Twiglet said...

Ha ha I keep seeing those faces today!!! So lovely for you all to meet up and it really sounds like a fab day out! x Jo

butterfly said...

Looks like you had a great time shopping and chatting at Happy Stampers - it sounds like such a lovely show. Still resisting the Infusions, but I can see I shan't be able to hold out much longer at this rate. Have to keep reminding myself I'm not even going to be at home to play with them, so what's the point?!

Shaz Brooks said...

I forgot to say I umm'd and arr'd about that Indigo Blu Kibble Kits stamp- with all the cat stamps I came home with, I think I may be going online for that now, lol. Shaz xxxx

Barb said...

What a happy photo of you with friends. You certainly bought some super goodies. Barbxx

Rita said...

Apparently we can't get the infusions here in the US yet. At least I couldn't find them here online.
Looks like a marvelous time!!! :)

Helen said...

hoping to go in October; we (the four of us) are keeping it in our sights! great purchases, glad you like the infusions, which I do have all of, as well as quite a few brushos, all of which I will never get through, but when did that ever stop me!! Helen #3

Sharon Koole said...

Glad you had a wonderful time at the show and got to meet other WOYWWers. What fun! Love the stamps. I think I'm going to have to hunt down or order some Lavinia Stamps when I come home to visit this summer.

Have a great week

I'd love to come to this show, but just can never see how to get tickets for it. Your new stash looks fantastic, can't wait to see what you do with it all.
Hugs, Julie x

Diane Futrell said...

LOL - when I see something I can't decide I seem to buy them all too!
Great picture - it looks familiar! LOL
Have a great day.
