Member's Weekend... Pinnacle Crafts.

Today was the start of the first members weekend of 2011 and with 30% offmost stuff (some restrictions) it was a great excuse for booking a day off and having a long weekend.

Despite getting to Barleylands early the shop was already heaving...these weekends are always well attended.

I picked up a few sets of new stamps - treating myself to two sets of Joanna Sheen's House Mouse stamps (I saw the "Ice Cream" set used on some cards in a magazine this week and I fell in love with the images). I also treated myself to a couple of the new Core'dination embossed cardstock packs and I finally got hold of Sir Tim's stack "Lost & Found"...I know it has been around for a while but I've never been able to get hold of one until now.

So some lovely bits to play with but I'm going to have to be good. I haven't put a pic on here because if I see the stuff I'll want to play...and really I do have a lot to do over the next few days so I'm saving them.

After all the rain that we have had over the last couple of weeks it now seems to have decided to stay dry for a bit but boy is it cold. This morning even saw some of the dreaded white stuff but it was gone in the blink of an eye - good job too! I really don't want to be contending with those weather conditions all over again especially as I have a 'Tim style' class to attend over at Pinnacles in a week's time. The last time I went there in the snow it decided to start coming down again and it took me 2.5hrs to get home...I think I'd rather have the rain - at least it feels a bit warmer when it is wet.................

I hope you had a fun day playing with your new stash Toni. Did you know that Hobbycrafts now stock Tim's stuff? *Ü* That was a lovely surprise when I went in there yesterday. I didn't buy any though - just yet. At least I know where to view it IRL and make my lists! LOL. What is the colour of the Clinique lipstick that they no longer make? ~Glen~
