OOoo new crafty stash!

Morning all, how the devil are you this Wednesday?
It's another bright and sunny day here, although it's a tad cold, just perfect for a early morning walk along the beach to wake you up.  Brr!
I've had my annual check up with the nurse this morning and was a little shocked when she took my weight, gulp!  Now I haven't had my head in the sand as I know I have put a little weight on, I was just surprised as to how much.  Slimming world books back out at the ready, boo hiss.  It is just so hard at this time of year, too many lovely rich yummy foods as the festive season approaches.  I don't feel that I eat excessively either but I do know where I am going wrong.  It just seems to me that everything that is enjoyable and yummy to eat isn't fat free!  In the words of my youngest that is just not fair!  Boo!
I guess this means that I have to try and do better on the food front, yawn.

Moving on to today's crafty loveliness I promised last week to show you my recent purchases.  I think you best sit down.  I even checked out with Santa on Facebook how good I have been this year......73% naughty!
Gulp, coal for Christmas then?!  Still on the upside at least I'll be warm.
I guess these purchases come under the naughty but nice umbrella, on the upside, I am looking forwards to playing with them.

Mmmm look at all those dies!

Oh and a couple of other dies, an embossing folder and two stamp sets jumped in my basket at the same time.  How rude!  ;)

Finally I also got this lovely yummy threads from Patricia.

So kind, thank you and such beautiful colours.

I now just need the motivation to sit down and play, sorry I mean craft!
First, boo, hiss, I have a huge pile of ironing to tackle so I best make haste and get that sorted.  Enjoy your hump day folks.  x

Great crafty stash, and I know how you feel about having to be good. I am on steroids and I am back on a higher dose so I just get started losing weight when it goes again. I might need to get back to going slimming world.

I am avoiding my annual check up with the nurse for fear of getting on the blasted scales! This year seems to have been so stressful and I've been coping by shovelling food in...I dread to think what the scales will reveal!

Look at those PTI lovelies!! I got exactly the same parcel (the Tinsel and Tags and the add on kit) and as luck would have it the parcel arrived on the exact day that I decided I needed to quit the crafting and concentrate on other things. Typical!

The yarn looks lovely too, fantastic selection of colours.

Take care Erika
Love Elaine xxxx
