Thanks and car boot bargains

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent me a note of encouragement and been complimentary about my cards.  I really appreciate it :)

We went to a local car boot over the Easter bank holidays and I picked up a couple of bargains.

I got these fab Oxo tins just 20p each - apparently there are 6 in the set.

I also got these 2 reels of thread just 50p each.

These jars aren't from the car boot they're from B&M Bargains, I'm not sure if that's a nationwide store but as the name suggests it does have quite a few bargains, they were only £2 for the 4.  You may be able to tell, I love storage.

I've also been busy making some cards for my friend with the Florists, when she does wedding flowers she wanted to send the couple a card from her and the shop so I've made some cards for her to give.

The weekend was spent getting samples together for my next class on Sat, I made the OH take the kids out so that I could craft in peace.  Bliss :)

If you want to see what I came up with have a look here.

Catch up soon xx


  1. Love those tins. Many years ago when I was in Primary School my pack-up box was an old Oxo tin - in the days before themed lunchboxes :)
