Thrifty (ahem)

I'm feeling very proud of myself tonight.  I've recently spent a tad too much on craft stash that I still can't use as there is literally no space, however, whilst watching Create&Craft and seeing their cuttlebug bargain, rather than just buy it (my usual method), I checked my bank balance.  I'm now officiall skint for the next few months which should give me some much needed time to pay off the current stash, actually learn to knit my cushion cover (one of my buys), continue to sort the craft stash ready for the craft room and get all the school work done.

I'm pretty much decided that i'm going to get a cuttlebug, they just seem so much more compact than a bigshot machine.  I'll just make it my reward to myself when I finally get the craft room done.  I've been learning loads of tips from other crafter's blogs.  I was particularly impressed by Clare Curd's system for storing clear stamps

I'm definitely going to try it.  I've also seen a couple of great ideas for storing promarkers.  I recently caved and treated myself to the full range so i'm looking forward to sorting them too.

I've also recently been trying to learn how to use my new camera.  I'm really pleased with some of the shots and think I may start to experiment with photos in crafting.

Anyway, that's all for now.

  1. LOVE your dandelion picture! and what a great idea, instead of buying new, learning and using what we've already got - harder done than said though! TFS, Love, Clare x
