Artstamps show at Newbury - Hot Hot Hot

Well, judging by the amount I bought (see below!) it was a successful show - and I hope Alison (craftytrog) enjoyed it - I bumped into her early on - I hope you weren't disappointed, as I feel kind of guilty for putting the idea of your going into your head -  but when I review it, I don't think it was as good as usual - some of my favourite companies (LB Crafts mainly!) missing again - but see what you think:

So much I couldn't fit it all in one pic.  The (bits and bobs) - Tim's Lost and Found paper stack, reinkers, card blanks, paper packs, more mini misters, etc etc.


and a "few" stamps.... a few more bits of idea-ology, a fab female form to alter, some tissue tape...  If you look closely (and I am sure you will) you will maybe see that some of the stamps were REDUCED i.e. bargains..... and NO, (Lori!) I don't know where I am going to put it all.... lol.

Sorry about all the crap in the background of the photo (including my box of blogged tags behind.  One day I will do something with them once blogged...) 
I had lots of things on my list that I couldn't get, including some tags - can you believe I've practically run out?  So when I got home, I rang Lin at LB Crafts who is sending me some, post-haste!  Thanks Lin!!  I left lots earlier than I normally do from Newbury so was home for most of the first of today's World Cup quarter finals..... and now I am settling down to my dinner and a lovely glass of Pimms....

Cheers all, and have a good evening!    Oh, by the way, I seem to be having some problems with anonymous comments on my blog and when I leave comments elsewhere (I left a comment on Hels' blog when I got home and it showed up as her commenting - although the link was back to me) so I have for the time being taken off "anonymous" comments from my blog - hope it doesn't cause you too much trouble.  I'll see how it goes.....

OOOh I do love looking at other people's stash can't have too much I say!

Julia Dunnit said...

Would loved to have come over and met you but was otherwise committed. Still, saves us arguing over the stamps, becasue of the handful you brought, I already have two and would have brought the others, no doubt! You did well...I heard from quite a few regulars who said it was quiet.

Lori said...

How did you read my mind,then? That is so funny, it's exactly what I was thinking as I was looking at the pictures! HEE What a haul you made this last weekend, and for not being "as good as usual", looks like you found stuff anyways, rofl. You're gonna love that lost and found paper stack, I'm just sayin'.

Val said...

Well - I cam home with a tote overflowing, but it looks like you bought loads more than I did!! Heehee .....
Hugs
