Good morning my dear friends!
The only day I seem to register is Wednesday - all the rest of the days of the week seem to go and I don't know when! Anyways it is WOYWW and I should show you my desk which is for once very tidy but as you know I have been to Ally Pally which was a bit shocking to me! I mean I have been to lots of fairs and stuff but this was just nothing I expected - the massive crowds of (mostly) women buying craft stuff, all the many companies (some of which I have never heard of ) selling amazing craft goodies! I think I was so surprised at the size of the whole thing I didn't know what to buy! Ha, ha noooo just kidding.....I bought a lot of stuff and that is what I will be showing you today! I had a nice chat with Linda Elbourne at LB Crafts and also a little hello with Jennie and Hels at the The Artistic Stamper....so here are the photos of my Ally Pally goodies...
I put them all down on the carpet in the lounge....
Here are all my goodies in detail....
I finally nailed the Tattered florals and also bought the tattered leaves....I tried them on my cuttlebug last night ( although they are suppose to be for the sizzics) and it worked perfectly! YIPEEEEEE!!!!!!
Also I have done very well buying stamps - I think I am all stocked up for the season of making Christmas cards!
This is a photo of the crowds waiting to get their crafty shopping on!
Linda Elbourne made and gave me this lovely tag - it was very interesting looking how she made the tag - I have been given a few tips on how to do certain things and I am very greatful Linda! Thank you so much!
And here is Linda in her elemet! Making lovely stuff!.....
Unfortunatly it was very crowded around Hels so I didn't get to chat much but I did get this lovely photo...As I shopped so well at The Artistic Stamper I earned a lovely flower that was made by Hels - you can see it up there with Lindas tag!
I also got to meet Helen ( the one that works on the floor) I could then see why she can do it and I couldn't ! Ha, ha....a big weight difference! But there you are - that is why I do my crafting on a comfortable chair at a my desk!!! Anyways Helen it was lovely meeting you!
I do have lots of photos from Ally Pally and I will blog them but for today I think this is enough otherwise all you snoopy girls and boys won't have time to snoop around other desks!
Have a lovely day, an even better snoop and I will see you soon!
Hugs to all of you!Cardarian
Ah, it was lovely to meet you too, don't know why I didn't get MY camera out!! Lovely to see all your stash - I see you managed to buy some things then.... will be back to see the rest of your photos.ReplyDelete

Sorry - had to tell you that the word verification I had to put in after my comment was "cheeper" - it tickled me!ReplyDelete
looks like you had fun and all those crafting goodies....ReplyDelete
How great to meet all those friends for the first time. WOnderful! Looks like you bought a cool amount of goodies.ReplyDelete
Enjoy it all!
Although you didn't seem to have much time to talk to the WOYWW gals, I can tell you had a good time and they with you. What an amazing day. I can't believe the crowds! But you made out like a bandit and have so many lovely new things to add to your stash. You probably ventured the furthest of anyone, but were rewarded by a flower and a tag you're sure to cherish. Happy WOYWW (guess you know I'm #1).ReplyDelete
It's a sensory overload isn't it, a great big craft fair like that. You managed though! I love the stamps you've chosen, and how lovely to put faces to names - am very jealous!ReplyDelete
So many great goodies. Lucky you.ReplyDelete

Aw - wish I'd seen you at Ally Pally - next year we'll have to do a proper WOYWW meet up, methinks!ReplyDelete
That's a dribble-worthy stash. Thanks for the photos of Ally Pally. I hope I can make it next year, although from the stash-buying potential, perhaps I had better start saving right now...ReplyDelete
