I had my cheque from the Chicken people today! woohoo - my first royalties... Phil asked waht I was going to spend it on. I gave a rather hollow laugh becasue if I were a business I would now only be about £4,000 in the red!
It has been payday (from my proper job) so I have done a leetle shopping recently. Scrapbooking uses the same kinds of paper (good) but needs something else - like aplphabets - so I have been buying some rather nice naked chipboard ones by Heidi Swapp and BG and loads of lubbly wubbly Auntie Sarah's Bloomers - paper flowers from Sarah's Cards. I bought 4 mixed packs of large ones of various kinds and some mixed colour small selections. I had just bought a few when sarah celebrated her birthday and gave a rather nice discount. That is the type of birthday I like!
And I also bought the Junkitz Classic Rock collection as I have noticed that my kids all wear a lot of navy, red and beige and hey - those are the colours of cl-ass-ic rrrrrrock! (said in my best radio 2 voice). And of course Dasher - which I bought from Scrap Revolution - but they are now out of stock. I can understand cos I love those cool christmas colours!
Any more spends? Oh yes, as I have heard they are discontinuing zipemate I bought a load of plates for it - cheaper than replacing it - yet.
And today we had the Card Club at Church. we had 11 there! So it's growing which is good. It is still using mostly my stuff although there are one or two other card makers who bring bits and bobs. I don't mind because I usually only take along older stuff so it gets rid really! I'm not as green as I'm cabbage looking you know.
It's lovely to see people getting a kick out of making cards.
I've done some harp practice and the blisters are beginning to harden and the fingers loosen up so I might not make too much of a prat of myself in a few weeks time. But i'm too tired for any more crafting today - apart from cross stitch while watching Casualty.
Was going to upload a pic but I only have 10 minutes to cook tea pre Caszh and the luck of the Blogger is not with me. Lucky there is a tv in the kitchen though...
