Goodies from Glasgow Hobbycrafts Show

Hopefully I may get back to normality now that my Advent Frames are nearly complete. Only the finishing touches which are even more fiddly than making the boxes.  You must be as fed up as I am of hearing about this saga but when I took it on I thought piece of cake, well, no, it was not, but the end is in sight.

I visited Hobbycraft Show at SECC Glasgow yesterday, my friend's daughter, Alisha, was supposed to be with me but she has acute tonsillitis and was unable to attend.  So off I went and had a good browse around and bought a few things, not as much as usual but then I came home and ordered  the Envelopplus plus free Project CD-ROM online from Crafter's Companion. They had a stall at the show but was small and no offers.

I also met up with Patricia (Summerhouse Crafts) and after passing her a few times we finally met, how many ladies at the SECC have the same hair colouring as Patricia, after a false start I finally tracked her down.  We did not have long together but I feel she is a genuine lady and would love to catch up for a longer gossip.  If you look at her collection on (Summerhouse Crafts) you can see we bought four items the same/similar, wonder what that says.  Here is a photo of my stash and the items both Patricia and I both bought.

My stash

similar or the same (Lili of the Valley die cut toppers, Spellbinders rose creations, some charms and Chipboard tags)
it must be great minds think alike!!!!!
Well I have to make a 60th Birthday card today for my friend's kids to give to their grandad, got my instructions Tatty Ted theme, and also one for her to give her dad. Boy will I be busy today.  So it's head down and get on with it.
Have a Good Sunday.

  1. Gosh that is another great haul, I think I better recount my pennies for next Sunday. Those panel screen cards look especially interesting. Have a fun crafty day with your orders. xx Flora

  2. Wow think you are going to be a busy lady with all this new crafty stash....Strange how you and Patricia have bought similar items shows you both have taste..LOl..lOl... Shall look forward to seeing what you make with your new haul...


  3. Looks like you got some lovely goodies Wilma. What a pity we didn't arrange to say hello yesterday. I'm usually there on the Sunday so yesterday was the exception. I got some nice goodies to but haven't had time to take a photo yet. I'm trying to get the grandchildren's Halloween cards and gift bags finished so I can post them tomorrow. They live in Crieff so I'll need to post them in time for Wednesday.

  4. Wilma glad you had a good time at Glasgow I see you found plenty to buy! Patricia texted me to say you had meet up for a little chat. We were away in Birmingham for the weekend do think I would have rather been to Glasgow, but that's life, can't be in two places at once. Enjoy making things with your new stash.


  5. Good Evening Wilma,
    Just grabbing a few minutes to catch up with a few Blogs while doing a sentiment for a card that has to go out tomorrow. The boys did not go till 6.45 so it is Go! Go! Go!.
    Really great to catch up with you yesterday hopefully we can get together to have a good old chat soon, have e-mailed you.
    Can hardly believe that your "Stash of Goodies" is so like mine, just shows "GREAT" taste...............LOL
    Happy Crafting

    1. Hi Michelle, don't know about a battle of the roses but it was funny seeing what Patricia had bought and when I looked at my purchases we had bought some of the same things.

      Cheeky girl, the Advent Frames are on their way, just the numbering of the small boxes to complete, had to have a break they were driving me crazy.
