I'm very envious of all that lovely stash Helen - glad you had a good day - i would have loved to have come but not possible this weekend - i am planning to visit Ally Pally in September though for the first time - can't wait

Glad you enjoyed your day Helen and what fabulous pics. Love the photos of Lin and Leandra and their gorgeous makes and what a lovely lot of stash you bagged, lol! I can see a 'few' stamps in there that I need ;D!

Thanks for sharing your day.

Wahey! You certainly did splurge. But after your forced restraint of the last 2 yrs (by your previous employer), By joves You deserved it!'

Julie Ann Lee said...

Ooh! What a great time you must have had! No wonder you were tired! It looks such fun. I am absolutely determined to make Ally Pally come what may! It will be my first craft show! The excitement will be major!!! Enjoy playing with all your lovely stuff! Julie Ann xx

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a tad jealous. How awesome to meet up with new and long time friends, then see these gals work their magic. I especially liked Leandra's houses, and of course, the piece with the fish she made for you.

You certainly got a lot of wonderful things and now can play with them. I have NO idea how you keep them all separated, or find room for them (grin).
