Back in town.

You may remember the birdhouse swap Frankie at Dragonsweb organised. This is a v poor picture I hurriedly took of the one seconds before I sent it to Mrs A. It was much more pretty in real life, I promise. All sparkly and twinkly.

After a week away I finally got to return home to go to Ally Pally yesterday,where much stash was safely gathered in and I was outta there in two hours!
I returned home to open a v exciting post bag, I received this beautiful tag for the birdcage swap from Sarah Engels-Greer, I love the colours and all the frilly layering, Thanks Sarah.

Then I opened these three georgeous ATC's from the Stamp man ATC Ocean swap

Left to right these were made by Tania Downie, Maureen Chadwick and Julie Haelemeersch. Thanks sweeties.x

Fab aren't they? wish I'd joined in with swaps sooner.
THEN I opened MORE pressies in the form of this wondrous tag by Hels Sheridan and the fabby stamp I won on her blog. I will stroke it and keep it forever{ but not in a scary way}lol.

Here are some piccies of the new stamps I bought at Ally Pally yesterday. The first two are by Brigid Ashwood for Sweet Pea Stamps. Badly coloured in a hurry but could not wait to try these steam punk bugs out. I haven't done them justice here but will do soon I hope.

Then the wonderfull Dyan Reavelys Travelling Travis, what a dear confused boy he is! Have to keep all his parts in this placcy bag until he decides who he is.

A welcome new addition at Ally Pally were Vilda Stamps. Spent the last five pounds in my purse on this cutie.
Also could not resist these beautious Carnival Alphas from Unity Stamps. Can't wait to create with all this lot, feels like it's my birthday.

Maybe I should start a WIYAPBTS[Whats in your Ally Pally bag this September] blog hop? would love to see what everyone else bought.
Go on, I've shown you mine.Posted by Picasa


  1. So funny! I'm too tired to look at my Ally Pally little hoard, which means I'm REALLY tired - I saw the Vilda stamps and having seen your Mr Froggie wish I'd spent more time browsing at their stand :( Off to bed now, to dream of crafting - how great it would be to have a 'supermarket sweep' in Ally Pally :)) Huh, I see you lost a follower :)) Wink! Di xx

  2. What a fabulous post full of goodies, wonderful presents and lovely stash - lucky you, sounds like you had a fab time. Thanks for sharing the tag - of course that's fine!!! Looks like you be having a great inky time this week - enjoy yourself. Look forward to seeing your makes...
