New stash (Manchester Central Fri 31st Sep)

Stash shopping at shows can become like a mad frenzy. You leave the house with a clear budget. 'And no I won't be spending more than X', I reassure myself as I enter the building and then I leave having spent double. The contents of my plastic bags, even when they are condensed into one bag do not look like they equal the financial commitment. But ask me if it was a positive experience. It was ace. Not only did I go with two great people, my dad and my best friend, I was inspired and what I bought should keep me going until... well at least next week.

When shopping at a show remember there will always be a shopping disaster. So what was mine? I bought to die cut alphabets and got home to find my die cutting machine has given up the ghost (died). Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

I feel the need to spend more money already. Anyone know where I can get a Wizard really cheap?


  1. Glad you had a good time in Filey, and stash shopping in Manchester, but sorry to hear that your Wizard has died. What about getting a Cuttlebug to replace it, I think it can do everything the Wizard can, but I'm not sure. I think I'm prejudiced 'cause I'd been interested in the Wizard but the guy I say demonstrating it at a show was SO rude to a customer who was trying it, made her feel so small when she knocked something off the (overcrowded) stand. Funny how these things set you against something, isn't it?!

  2. glad you and your pops had a good time:) I might make it one year with you, to keep you to your budget of course:P


Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You let me know I'm not on my own.
