Today I've not been to work and had a lovely time shopping this morning! I went to the new craft shop in Preston Crafty Hearts where I picked up a new circle punch and a selection of new 12x12 papers with the intention of using them for my 365 album (which is coming along very nicely thank you - photos soon I promise!).
On the way back I stopped off at a lovely shop that sells all kinds of beautiful unsual bits and pieces - mainly gifts and bits and bobs for the home. I managed to pick up some truely stunning wire birds and a similar metal one that are designed to hang from some ribbon. I'm going to have them in my craft room hanging from the ceiling in the corner above my computer I think but I need to put some different ribbon on them first. No photo of them today as it was so grey and dull and I want to get a photo of them in situ. I'm sure they'll make a great future entry to my 365 though. I also picked up some really cute tiny wooden hearts that have different words on them, thought they'd make great embellishments.
And one of the other things I love about the shop is the packaging! There bags are just amazing, I really love them and can't bear to get rid of them so I save them. I've got ideas about what to do with them, the smaller ones perhaps will become pages in a mini book and I might cut up the big paper one and use it as the background to a LO. What do you reckon?
And as you can see I really do like these bags... so much infact that they are the subject of my Day 7 photo to document my day of retail therapy!
