The Good, The Bad And The Happy News
It's been a week of mixed fortunes in my little crafting world. I went to a craft fair, and the good news is I got lots of new stash, some of it at bargain prices. The bad news is, I managed to lose one of my bags containing a Tim Holtz set (which I'd paid full price for, to do a workshop at my craft club).
Then the other day, I was playing with my new Tim Holtz dies and managed to break my Cuttlebug. (Yes, I know they're not recommended to go through a Cuttlebug, but I've never had any problem before with them). I may have been asking it too much, the shim might just have been too thick, and next thing, the side exploded off. I managed to fit it all together but the bad news is, it keeps popping off as soon as anything goes through the rollers. So the good news is, I'm upgrading (sizewise at least) to a Big Shot, which I never had room for before.
And the happy news is, I've got a new stamp set coming out, PartyGirl, which will be available very soon, in time for STAMPlorations' birthday party - watch this space! The PartyGirl set is designed so that you can create a party girl front view or rear view, or you can use the dress separately with or without the hanger. I doodled a rack for my dresses to hang on. The sentiment is from another set by Shery that's being released for the birthday party. The sparkly stuff is Crushed Ice Crystals.
