WOYWW 549 – a few crafty bargains

Morning, everyone. I am up and in my craft room fairly early today, and decided to get this typed before the day runs away with me.

I have two photos for you today. The first shows some fab Dazzles stickers. I have grand plans to use them on scrapbook layouts, but they definitely couldn’t stay in the shop at that reduced price.

The second shows the Crayola Twistables I treated myself to for Bible journaling. Again, these were in offer in Tesco. I also bought the set of alphabet stamps from Lidl at their usual bargain price. I have stamped out some names ready to make gift tags. I love the bright colours.

Did you get any ‘Black Friday/Cyber Monday’ bargains?

My Psoriasis is slowly healing. At least I am able to drive again and sleeping well at night (with the help of strong antihistamines!). We are helping my stepdaughter and her family move back to Pembrokeshire, so have been busy viewing houses/sorting out paperwork/loading and unloading vans etc. Our house and garage is full of bags/boxes/furniture. Hopefully she can make the final move before Christmas.

Christmas – are you ready? I need to get a few more cards in the post that I had missed off my original list. There are a few presents to buy, and I will be starting wrapping later. There are some that need to be sent off with a courier. I put up our tree and decorations on Sunday (busy with the chapel Christmas fair and a craft workshop on Saturday), turkey to be collected on Christmas Eve, and otherwise we are planning a fairly quiet time. Not sure if and when any family will be here, but it won’t be the busy/hectic week that we had last year. I have put my foot down and told hubby that I cannot cope with preparing big meals.

Breakfast time now (for me and the dog), so will get this published. If you would like to join in with this global crafty blog hop, then skip over to Julia’s Stamping Ground.

  1. I am not ready for Christmas, the tree isn’t up yet! It will all come good though, it always does. The part I really dread is the crush in the market for fresh veggies etc, could happily do without that. Haven’t seen those stickers before, hurry up and use them so I can tell how badly I need some!

  2. We are spending Christmas away from home so no tree this year but we are taking one with us – it will probably go up in the house when we get back as I is looking quite bare at the moment. I miss our big tree when it doesn’t go up but really there isn’t the time (or energy) this year.
    Glad your psoriasis is improving, hope it continues to do so and you get a pain free Christmas.
    Gosh you got some lovely shopping, bet it jumped into your basket as you walked around.

  3. Glad to hear of healing. I bought nothing. I have enough of every for this lifetime and beyond. Robyn 9

  4. Hi Ali, Have fun with your new stash.

    Happy WOYWW

  5. So glad that your psoriasis is easing. I forgot that I bought twistables for Biblejournalling – Alex has nicked mine at the moment! I usually use my prismacolours in my Bible nowadays. I am not ready for Christmas yet although the tree is up and the cards are posted. Happy WOYWW. With love & God Bless, Caro x (#11)

  6. Hi Ali. Good to see you today. Nice new stash there on your desk today. No – I didn’t get any bargains over the sale weekend – never even looked. Pretty hopeless at that sort of thing.
    Take care. God bless.

  7. We are kind of half way ready for Christmas but you can bet I’ll forget something that needs doing and that’s when I’ll realise I’m no where there at all Lol! Wishing you a happy woyww, Angela X13X

  8. Hectic day yesterday helping Tilly and tea for Ben. Today dashing around voting and posting parcels – long queues! No Christmas tree yet – maybe sort that for next week – I’m always a bit slow. xx Jo
