It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Yes..it's that time of the year when I blow a whole wad of cash at the Craft Show! And this year I did not disappoint myself. I won't say how much, but I am certain that the amount I spent doesn't compare to the visa card wielding old ladies that bowl you over with their little wheelie carts.  I am serious! It's like trying to squeeze though a death maze of tinted hair and oversized knitted handbags. I barely made it out of there alive.
This year I had a plan. I did my research and marked on the site map the four stalls I wanted to visit first, and headed to those places when the doors opened before the mad rush that was inevitable. Then I went back to the beginning and did the show aisle by aisle. Four hours of wandering around there and I was done. Here is my loot. I will tell you where it's from in case any of you crafty's out there are interested in any of the items.

Inks and craft mat from Ranger

12x12 and 6x6 templates from Crafters Workshop

art stamps and clings from Hero Arts

Clear stamps from Rosies, acrylic block, and Art stamps by Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection  "Mini Classics"

paper laser cut packs from Art Stamps Australia

Chip board laser cuts from Scrap Matts

Scrap Matts as well. (I met the guy who designed the parasol, isn't it beautiful?)

Little hinged cupboard from Twiddleybitz

Funky Attic House, Funky Townhouse, Twiddleybitz (these people make amazing stuff) .

 small printers tray.. Twiddleybitz.. (der Sprite)

This printers tray house is gorgeous made up..I fell in love with it immediately.

chair pin cushion, mini houses and binder rings, Twiddleybitz
Shadow box . 

I"m not addicted. 
I'm not...
So the ones that have the pictures of sample ones, of course mine wont look like those, not really my style, but rest assured I will show you when I am done.. lol. I am starting on the pin cushion first. I'm thinking....steampunk...


  1. I'm jealous! It sounds like you had fun in spite of the little blue haired ladies, lol. I look forward to seeing what you create.

  2. I'm not into scrapping and stuff, but I love the parasols too!

    1. No I don't scrap either. I do what they would call "off the page".

  3. I have no idea what any of this stuff is, but I sure can't wait to see what you do with it. Good luck, Sprite. And have lots of fun! :)

    1. LOL! I am trying to show hubby what I bought and he replies "uhuh.." He doesn't get it either.

  4. That's a good haul.
    What do you do with the templates and laser cuts? Spray them like stencils?
    Art is happiness.
    And stuff.
    Lots of stuff. Stuff good.

    Multiartpass. Hee.hee.

    1. I know.
      It's more, what CAN'T you do with them. Yes you can use them like a stencil, or with texture paste, to add texture to canvas/surface...
      Happy happy!


  5. Your brain must be churning with ideas for things to do with all of these supplies.

    1. It really is. To the point where I didn't know where to start!

  6. What wonderful you must have had
    Cant wait to see what you create from all your lovely goodies

  7. I thought about you today and yesterday because I spent both afternoons doing art. It felt good!


I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
