After not having any time to do any crafting for what feels like ages, I spent all afternoon and most of this evening making crafty stuff for a work colleague who is leaving on Friday.
I made a note book for Big notes, a post it note book for small notes and decorated a gift bag for them to go in.
The top picture is the gift bag, next is the inside of the post it note holder, then the outside of the holder, next is the inside of the big note book and finally the outside of the note book. I used my new cricut cart, home decor for the birds, papermania papers, prima flowers and some cheap blossoms. I am really pleased with the gifts and hope that the recipetent likes them as well!

I have given myself the weekend off from anything related to university and will be finishing off a leaving gift nd card for a work colleague. I will put pics of them here when Iahev finished them.
For now, I am going to give myself an early night, so goodnight all.x

We then went into a little shop called Primitive Treasure, My God, I had a field day in there:) There was tons of lovely stuff everywhere you looked. I was looking for lovely bits to go in my craft room and I found loads in this little shop.
I couldn't resist this coffee mug! I will be taking this to uni with me on monday:)
We then popped in Sugar and Spice and I bought a tim holtz mini mask, a papercraft magazine, another Fiskars border punch and some Jenny Bowlin bingo cards:)
We then went to Ikea where I bought some more lovely bits for my craft room including a cushion, a little red patterned bag, a set of three red fabric boxes, a red leather effect desk tidy and 2 sets of metal filing drawers.
All in all I spent a fortune, but had the best day. I will be sorting my craft room out tomorrow and making it look lovely with all my new stuff:)

Now, in case anyone thinks I like spiders let me tell you, I have a complete and utter phobia of these horrible things. I told Tony when he came back in that I didn't want my craft room in here anymore, but he said I have to keep it here as he has already put all the shelving up! I had to leave the room last night after moving the ribbon tubs.
Thanks for popping by. x

Now, can anyone guess what I was more excited about? ...................................
Yes, you guessed it I was more excited about the ribbon and the pattern on the box, not really interested in the chocs inside. I also saw a great idea for a LO using the box lid as inspiration. Will have a go at using this inspiration tomorrow and will post it here when it's done:)
After leaving Faversham we popped to Scrapbook sisters where I spent a few more pennies on these. I can't believe how much ric rac I bought, but i love it:) The little pack at the top of the photo is a pack of playing cards with lovely japanese pictures on them, I couldn't resist:)
We then popped into Bybrook Barn on the way home and I bought these:
I don't usually buy the goody bags, but I had just paid £10 for a pack of 12x12 and a pack of handmade 8x8 when I noticed the same paper packs in the goody bag along with lots of other stash, so I swapped the paper packs for the goody bag, and for an extra fiver I got lots of stuff in the bag. The transparancies I just love, first time I have seen these, so had to buy both of them.
We also stopped and Kath took some photo's of the Bluebell Woods, what a lovely sight. I, of course had forgotten my camera, but Kath took a couple of photo's for me. Thanks Kath:-)
I had a great day, spent loads of money and really enjoyed going out after being indoors for the best part of a month, firstly due to feeling very down then due to my son needing someone to care for him after having an operation. I am now going to go and stroke all my new stash:)
bye for now.
