Today I followed my appointment with a quick dash into town to do some admin jobs - post office, bank and stationery supplier. I decided that I should also try some retail therapy. A trip into Boots for some chemisty things and a browse around the gifts. They have a lot of Christmas stock in now and although I don't want to start thinking about Christmas just yet I found myself drawn to have a leisurely browse because the aisles were so quiet - they won't be like that in December!
I found this pretty trio of tins - I bought one for myself and one for a gift
and a rubber stamp set - I'll be able to use these on my hand-made gifts I'm planning to make for Christmas
I haven't started making anything yet as we are just into October but there are a few ideas buzzing around in my head. I have been squirreling away fabric, ribbons, buttons and some lovely decoupage paper. My sewing machine is poised for action - just waiting for me to get my act together!
