You can't beat a good caffeine hit!

Aptly demonstrated here by Maureen - who is taking a few minutes rest from her 'shop till I drop' quest and her sole purpose of relieving her bank account of whatever there was in it........

The caffeine intake (in the form of a bottle of a well known brand of pop) also assisted Anne who made it her mission to buy up every new Tim Holtz Distress Ink at the ridiculously low price of £3...... by the time the rest of us got there there were none left..................................

Now Val.... Val is demonstrating how to pace yourself for the serious business of craft stash shopping by sipping water and taking some time out from the rigours of fighting to the front of stalls!!! LOL

Lovely day had by all...... my feet are killing me!!!!

Before I go to put the tootsies in a bowl to soak away the pains of the day I have to say a big thank you to Anne who arrived bearing gifts of a huge box of her gorgeous cards for my Charity. Although Anne and I have known each other 'on line' for a while, this was the first time we'd met in person.......Crafters never cease to amaze me with their generosity and thoughfulness and Maureen and Anne are no exception.

I really appreciate my crafting friends' help in my effort to continue to raise money for Breast Cancer Campaign. Thank you so much. xx

Sounds like you all had a good old spend up!
I was thinking of you - now that I can't get to shows I should be saving pots of money - but I console myself by ordering all those things I want but don't need on line.
Well, I've never had much left at the end of the month so I won't change the habits of a lifetime!
I'm looking forward to seeing the inspirational things about to be created by you all, Connie, x
