WOYWW & A Crafty Trip Out (with PARTY BAGS!)
How quick a week goes!
I wanted to post what's on my desk, something I've just finished this week. I made a mini book each for my friends and I that started a book club about 18 months ago. We've read about 26 books and I managed to find thumb nail prints (from Amazon) for each book as well as a short synopsis of each book we read. Each page was embellished with stamps, flowers, embellishments, tags hidden pockets etc. (Too many photo's too show!) We have read some great books (& some RUBBISH ones!!) The great thing about a Book Club is that you take it in turns to choose the book and you find that you are being introduced to books that you yourself would NEVER have picked up!) It's great fun - we meet for lunch once a month - spend 10 minutes talking about the book and the rest of the time just catching up and having a good laugh together. You don't even get kicked out if you haven't had time to read the book!!! (I could never say "Sorry, I preferred crafting to that book we chose! - normally, the excuse would be, I was on the waiting list at the library and by the time I got the call to say it was in - I only had 3 days to read it !!)
Also - yesterday I went out with my scrapping friends to the Craft Barn in Lingfield. 7 of us went together and we decided to each spend £10 on some items that we could then split between the 7 of us as "surprise" goody bags. Look what i came away with - it was so exciting when I got back to see the different array of goodies we had all bought. It was so much fun! (Oh, as you can imagine we all spent a lot more than £10 today - the remainder was to add to our own stash!!!)
