WOYWW 541 – I bought some stash!

I was just about to wish everyone Good Morning, but it is actually 12.25 pm. I have worked out how to log into my WordPress account and I have every intention to blog regularly on here, but definitely don’t hold your breath!

As today is Wednesday, I am joining in with What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Take a trip over to the Stamping Ground for more details and to join in yourself. As my blog post title says, I actually bought some stash this week. I was at a craft workshop at our local craft shop and it was mentioned that one of the town’s charity shops had a large amount of crafty stash donated to it. Obviously, we dropped everything that we were doing and literally walked as quickly as we could up the High Street (and if you know Haverfordwest, you know how steep that is!). Lots to choose from, including several baskets full of planner stash. I do my planning digitally now, but couldn’t resist some of the cute stamps (which will be useful for cards, notelets etc), wood embellies and some washi tape. I also bought some other stamp sets and a cross stitch kit. All of this for £16.

Didn’t I do well?!

Crafting-wise, I have been to a few workshops recently, and at least three planned each month. I will do a separate blog post showing what we have made.

Otherwise I have been busy with cleaning/organising the house/garden etc, getting out on my bike when I can (regularly cycling 20-30 km routes now), Spanish online lessons and trying to find space in my day for Photoshop (I have been attempting to master this for years now, and determined to keep going). I am also starting Bible Journaling again, with an international online conference starting later today.

Lots to type about in the coming months.

We are off to Spain at the end of the month, where I will be hiring an electric bike, so I can enjoy cycling around the beautiful valley. Who knows how Brexit will affect our plans to buy a property there, but in the meantime we can enjoy the lifestyle/weather for holidays.

I do still intend to import at least some of my Blogger blog posts over here at some point, but who knows when that will be.

Hope that everyone is well.

  3. Good to see you Ali! Great buys from the charity shop – i thought you’d given up this sort of crafting and got rid of all your stuff. Glad to know that I was wrong, hope you enjoy using your new toys! Bet you’re looking forward to going away.

  8. What fun…love all the fun finds. Hope you have time to play with them. Yeah for you and attempst with photoshop, it’s been on my list for a long time. Keep up the biking ! I miss it. Our rainy weather earlier took over the gravel roads and I can’t load it to go in town to ride. Now with harvest season too much big equipment and trucks on the roadways. Have a fun week.

  9. How lovely to see you on WOYWW – have I just been missing you?
    Great shopping and what a wonderful find – benefits all round – both the shop and yourself (and other crafters)
    Keep up the cycling and the electric bike sounds really good – cycling in the lovely sunny weather with the wind rushing by seems like a jolly good idea.
