Bargains

I tried to blog about my shopping bargains last night, but because of the snow we had 2 power cuts, each time as I was trying to post, so I gave up and decided to show you all today.
I had to get a few last Christmas presents from Basildon yesterday, and ended up treating myself as well.
My first find was in the pound shop- the bell wreaths, 40 bells on each wreath! I shall be using these in school next Christmas, a much cheaper way to get bells. Then I went to The Works, and there I found this book on felt making called Scarves and Wraps. Then at my local craft shop I found this Glitteratti packs going cheap, my only problem, which colour to buy!
Kezzy had her last art lesson this term, so I popped into Craft Arena to get Nickie her Q.A magazine, just had to buy a pot of this paint that has just arrived in the shop. I shall be playing with this when I get back from my Mother's after Christmas.



Kezzy's last day at school was cancelled due to the snow, about four inches. I was supposed to be meeting a friend for lunch but that got cancelled too, so I have had a chance to get my various white paints out and paint up some samples.

My children were disappointed as we had no snow and they were hoping for an extra day off school!
A good day for you to stay in and sew.x

I know Nickie said you were her shopper,but I didn't know she meant it literally. Excellent shopping though!
