Crafty Saturday

Hey bloggers, so sorry we haven't been posting much throughout the past week but we have been extremely busy outside of our crafting lives but today we got back to it and had a Saturday dedicated to some crafting and also a little bit of shopping.
We are starting to get inspired for our September Spectacular which will see a whole range of crafting techniques and mini workshops for everyone to get involved in. At the moment we don't want to give too much away but it will involve a bit of jewellery making and an array of crafting techniques, so excited! Today was the first step in deciding what techniques we wanted to focus on and we will be teaching a few inking and stamping techniques and also making flower embellishments and charms. Mainly using Tim Holtz products because they are just so great!!!
When lunchtime ticked around we decided we needed a bit of retail therapy and took a drive over to Burgess Hill to check out The Glitter Pot which has relocated to Sheddingdean Business Park. And I have to say what a transformation. They had relocated a while ago but me and mum hadn't been around there since our last visit a couple of years ago because it didn't stock all the things we were into. But now they have a whole floor full of everything you may desire. They have a huge selection of Tim Holtz stamps and products, though they could expand on their ideology lines. They have mountains of scrapbooking papers and accessories and there is just something about the place that seems so laid back and relaxed. So this will definitely be on our favourite craft store list for sure.
With another busy week ahead I will try and keep posting with new ideas and inspiration whenever I can, but for now keep crafting and be happy!

Until next time.................
