My craft goodies

... bought in New York.I had been looking forward to shopping in Michaels since we first booked the holiday in New York and saved £70 from my birthday money to spend on craft goodies but I was so disappointed when we got there. The shelves were empty so there was a really poor supply of crafty goods, no papers at all, so most of the stuff I bought was ribbons at a dollar a roll! I managed to get a couple of punches (the only ones they had) but there was nothing new that we couldn't get over here.

I did manage to get the Doily punch (as well as some paper flowers and a couple of gorgeous Anya stamps) from Tracy at Dies To Die For though and what a fab service she gives. I ordered on Tuesday evening and my stuff arrived this morning. I will definitely be using them again.

My postie also brought me my new DT stamp from DewDrop Craftz. It is one of the new Sally-Ann Hancock designs and he is Eric the Dinosaur and he is just gorgeous! Take a look at the blog too as there is a prize on offer for the winner of the challenge :)

My last 'pressie' is the gift I received from my Secret Birthday Fairy (which was the same as a Secret Santa). I organised it as one of the celebrations to celebrate the 7th birthday of the Crafts By Carolyn I got card blanks and envelopes, lace, ribbons, paper flowers, die cuts and assorted tags all in greens and yellow. Who was a lucky girl then :)
