New Stash!! {Winner of Giveaway Announced!}

Afternoon Dear Reader; a lovely sunny day it is too a little late from me today as i though that i had scheduled a post for today but they had actually run out on Monday last week so i missed Friday too, Opps! I didn't check the blog on Friday as i took a day off with my hubby, and we had no tech for the whole day just did nothing important caught up on recorded TV and basically vegged out! It was lovely!
Today i thought that i would share with you my recent stash purchases well i say recent they go back as far as march.

First up was what i brought at Stamperama;
2015-03-01 12.56.44

Lots of Lawn Fawn!…. Bugs and Kisses, Stitched Hills, Stitched Circles, Baked with Love, Whale you be Mine?, and Happy Everything!..and they’re matching dies of course!

Not sure about Stamperama; i was a bit disappointed there was not a lot of stands, possibly due to clashing with another show, i will give them another go if i am around but i think shows like this may have had their day for me; which is a shame as i love going to them and coming home with a huge haul.  But it was the sheer choice that i loved, i am considering Ally Pally in Sept though.

Next up was an order from Sprinkle-Twinkle

More Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies; a block, some 6x6 paper packs and sequins al from LF
And a couple of memento inks.  I ordered this over the phone as their website is fab but they have oodles more in the store so i just called up and asked for what i was after. 

Nice quick delivery Smile great service.

I also got a couple new Spectrum Noir pencil tins

I got these from Amazon as they had the best price at the time Smile

And Finally i got another of the We R Memory Keepers Totes….. I needed another one…..no really i did! lol My grey one is full of my project life bits so if i was to go to crop and i didn’t want to scrap i needed something to carry my stash in right?!  Lol the ways we justify our purchases Winking smile

This is just like my grey one inside but unfortunately i chose to buy this from Oyster Stamps and the experience left a lot to be desired.
This is the review that i left on their Facebook page after my dealings with them;

Wouldn't recommend the service at all customer service is severely lacking; ordered on Sunday paid extra for 1st class hoping that it would be with me by Wednesday, still showing as processing on the Tuesday; when i phoned Tuesday to ask if they knew when it would be shipping was told {rudely} that it was a processing time of 7days!!
Item shipped Wednesday and has just arrived - great 2 days later than i needed it but at least it was here.
BUT they're was a price ticket on the bag for £21 when i paid £24.99!!
I called and asked if this was correct and told basically tough as they have a new member of staff so she must have marked it up with the wrong price. Less than believable at best, i would hazard that it is pure fabrication, I would also say that the packaging left a lot to be desired it was packed in one layer of brown paper no internal bag on the tote bag to protect it.

There are also marks on the front of the bag but i can over look them as i doubt i would ever get anywhere with a replacement from this company


I am not an awkward customer  i will always give a good review as well as a bad one if needed but i do think that good manners and great customer service cost nothing.  I am from a retail background so i know how a customer should be treated; but i also know how being told you gave great service is just as good for the business as giving bad feedback

Well that’s my shopping for now, cant wait to start using it and sharing the projects with you all.


Now for my giveaway that ended on Friday, thank you to all who entered.  I popped all the names in a hat and got Mr.C to pull one out…..

drumroll please……..the winner is……..(dramatic TV show pause)

**Louise Simms!**

Well that’s it from me today
Until next time
