I've a confession for my Hawaiian friend Yuki..... I ordered from PTI last month! I know - I said I would never do it as the costs are horrendous - but I really really wanted the All Booked Up set to make something for a good friend who is retiring and also for my sister who will be laid up for a couple of weeks after surgery - so I crossed my fingers and listed all (well almost all) my wooden block stamps on ebay and sold the lot! I have found I just don't use them any more as acrylic are so much more versatile and easy to work with. And with these funds I was able to order what I wanted. On Tuesday the order arrived and I have to say I'm absolutely delighted with this set. My first project is a straight copy of Nichole's countdown project and I love the way its turned out.
I have to admit that with shipping costs of £18 plus another £23 import costs at this end I felt really sick to think that I could have bought another two sets of stamps with that money but just have to remind myself that I haven't really spent anything as the money went into paypal and straight out again without actually getting to my bank at all! And I got to buy the dies I'd been wanting too. Sigh..... so I'm very happy - at least until the next release!
I haven't forgotten that I promised a giveaway in my last post and I have been working on it this week but its not finished yet. I hope to post it at the weekend. I've been busy in the garden again and had my first digging of potatoes as well as pulling some onions this week. There's lots of weeding needed but I'm still spending too much time wandering around with my camera - as you can see.
And Kyffin the cat looked so pretty sitting on the porch I just had to snap him!
