Sneaky Lunchtime Shopping...

Hi Everyone...

Well the title says it all. I'm currently studying a short course one day a week alongside my work, and today in our lunch break I went on a sneaky shopping spree.

I picked up a few 'essentials' such as insect killer spray for my rose bush which is being attacked, and some white cropped jeans for the lovely sunny weather!

I also treated my self to a couple of crafty/pretty bits!

I'm collecting buttons ready for the button swap at Lucey's Button Swap
It will be my first ever swap and I'm very excited! Just need to get some ideas of what to make!

I bought some felt to make my needle case from the Cath Kidston Sew! Book - but I need some pinking shears to cut the edges and some wide flat bondaweb! 
Unless you ladies think it would work with wonderweb strips?

A palette knife, which I have been searching for for ages, that didn't cost the earth but is perfect for icing my 'Hummingbird Bakery' style cupcakes!

A lovely Cath Kidston style bowl - which I'm currently using to store my left over mini eggs from Easter! 
Can you believe there are any left!?

I can't wait to get crafting! The button swap has really got me excited - and I'm itching to make my needle case! Thing is I have a very important interview on the 9th May and should really be spending my evenings preparing - not blogging and crafting. But I love to procrastinate!

(Is it ironic that one of the things I have to revise is my dissertation project on procrastination!? - I think so!)

*Sigh* so I will try and refrain from crafting - despite the Big Girl Craft Club at Emporium Tea Rooms being cancelled tonight (so I would have been crafting anyway - so why shouldn't I?)

Lastly, A quick thank you to Victoria for her shout out! I hope all you new readers enjoy - and if you do please pass on my blog!
