It is nearly afternoon here in sunny Pembrokeshire (yes, the sun is out - although it is cold and windy) and I have had a busy morning getting various 'must haves' done, and now I can sit down and show you what is going on in my craft room.
If you would like to join in, go on over to Stamping Ground.
My crafty table is actually fairly quiet for now, but I do have lots of ATCs to make, so it will be less tidy later on.
There are 2 owl embellies that I have printed out and heat embossed with gold - both for ATCs. The left over part from cutting out a butterfly - in turn from some paper that was left over when making a journal page background. My dachshund clipboard and notepad from The Works. The usual pile of journals waiting for more creativity and my box of pens.
Stanley, my Brother Scan n'Cut (people seem to name them!) is currently set up on the small table against the wall, right behind where I sit at my PC and next to my crafty table. I used to have my small sewing machine on there, but I haven't used it once yet, so that has gone in a cupboard (one advantage of having a small machine). I will need to connect it to my pc with a usb cable and don't want that trailing across the floor, so going to reorganise my craft room to get it onto the table where one of my printers is currently. No time today, so that will have to wait for another day.
So far, Stanley has behaved well. I did some test cuts and a bit of direct scan/cut. There will be a blog post eventually.
I treated myself to a visit to T K Maxx yesterday - and as usual I went in for 3 items and came out with as much as I could carry! There are so many brilliant bargains and just lovely items in our local store, Haverfordwest. Didn't get any actual craft stash this time - they had paint, pens. canvases, sewing kits and more, but nothing that I HAD to have - but did get a couple of lovely photo albums/scrapbooks. I may fill them with a few of my digital scrapbook layouts and give them as gifts, but will probably keep them for myself.
The butterfly one is big enough at around 8 x 8 inches, but the other one is huge (at least 12 x 12) - and they are both heavy. Really good quality and less than £10 each.
BTW - I did the get 3 items I needed.
