    inks for stamping - since I'm mid clearing/sorting have discovered I actually have a ton of stamps and I've never done any stamping & actually have hardly any inks and not a clue which ones to buy!!!

    Pepop as for the trolley they sell them in 8's ... maybe we should have a group buy :rotfl: I need 8 for the NEC, then Popkins will need 64 for all her stuff :rotfl:

  • Afternoon all, 'fraid darent sit too long as will fall asleep - must keep going - and its swimming AND its Parents Evening!! I want my bed!!!:cool:

    Just incase it may be of use to some of you - as I only realised they do fill your own boxes with card & paper at The Works - not sure if its only certain stores though because this one was near my mums & the one near me doesnt - thought might come in handy as there isnt a papermill near us bit of a trek to York or Metrocentre. Didnt get chance to check out the quality though:(

    Lovely bits & pieces for easter in the poundshops & home bargains if you want to check them out - got some cute stickers & lovely ribbons for 99p each.

    Lei, not sure if commented on your blog - but your candles are lovely:T
