I was up in Belfast on Monday with my daughter for her last exam before the start of her next semester and we managed to fit in a spot of shopping in the afternoon. I liked the colours of the doilies in 'The Works' so I'm sure I will be able to use them for a few cards (or maybe just keep them to look at, especially the duck egg coloured ones - my favourite colour!!). I also found a new shop with lots of stationery etc and picked up a box of 8 large coloured paperclips for £1 - I intend to add felt flowers to use them as bookmarkers. The little card with the strange chicken on it was an extra one of the notices I sent out to my needlecraft group to remind them that classes begin again this week. You can visit the other desks by going to Julia's blog HERE.
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
