Well I had a great time on Saturday at the Craft Fair although it always amazes me how there are always one or two stalls that manage to creep into an expo like that which no matter how I look at it I fail to see how they are connected to craft (silicone lids to keep your left overs fresh in the fridge?!).
I managed to get 4 of the things on my wish list and discovered a new on-line craft store so generally I came away a happy girl.

For a bit of fun I have decided to join in over at Papertrey Ink and take part in their
