I met up with the girls from the Manchester Etsy team last weekend, for our monthly meeting. Someone had had the brilliant idea to do swaps, so we all took along some things that we had bought in a fit of creative enthusiasm, and then never found a use for. It's really true that one woman's trash is another's treasure! The Craft Centre was full of cries of "are you sure you don't want this??" and we all went home with lots of new goodies! I've also been buying some bits and bobs for a new project I'm working on (newsflash - I've been commissioned to do some how-tos for a new UK craft magazine!!) It's so inspiring having new art supplies - now I just need to find the time to use them!!


  1. Lucky you...lots of goodies to create with...cant wait to see what you come with! :-)

  2. oooo... that looks like a real interesting stash of stuff you got there!! and the colors are a poppin'!!

  3. Wow, that looks so exciting! I love the colours!!

    Congratulations on the magazine commission!! Can't wait to read it!! You'll let us know when it come out won't you!!

  4. I know - there are a couple of map pages in there too - just in time for this week's challenge!

    Catherine thanks! I'm really excited - the first issue will be out in a couple of weeks. Though I'm not 100% sure I'll be in the first one, I'll let you know when my projects appear!

  5. What a fun event. I am so jealous!!! I want to come play with you all.
