Final Day Friday of my Half Term Holiday

Well it is another hot one today. Went into Town early to get ingredients for tonight's lasagne - you didn't really need to know that - haha - but anyway. I then walked passed the QS shop. A light bulb moment when I remembered Karen showing me, while at the retreat, two cases she had purchased in there to house her ink pads. Karen also had then on show in her new sewing room. You can just see them up the top left hand corner (orange and green). Well you know me and orange? haha. So I went inside and had a look round. Not bought anything in this shop before and wasn't really sure what they sold - anyway I hunted about and found these two ...


The smallest one was £2.50 and the larger one was £3 so I thought I'd have them both. Came home and typed and inked up some labels for my Distress Ink pads and arranged them inside. And Bob's your Uncle! haha



I haven't decided what to put in the other case yet might house different ink pads. Have you noticed too that I have loads of room in the little case .... mmmm might need to fill that space up at some point! tee hee.

Thanks for checking in with me today. Back to school on Monday - ho hum!
