This week has been crazy busy. I mean INSANELY busy. When did 5 year olds get such hectic social lives?
We've had 3 birthday parties this weekend - including her own and frankly I'm ready to slump into a gin-induced coma in the corner.
Dashing through town to buy paper plates and party streamers didn't exactly leave much time for mooching around the charity shops. However, my chazza radar is still ticking over, and screeching past one shop I slammed on the breaks (I was on foot, you understand) when I spotted these in a window.
Yes, I know they're not the most exciting of finds, but they will substantially boost my paper craft equipment collection and they're always handy to have when knocking up cards and gift tags.
They were a bargain too at £1.75 each for the big ones and 99p for the little one. I know they cost about £7 each in my local craft shop, and so did the sales assistant as he muttered about them being priced too cheaply. I felt a momentary pang of guilt, but soon remembered that I'm probably one of their best customers, and some you win some you don't.
