My birthday and more blog candy!

Well for those of you who don't know, I'm a 4th July baby! So it was my birthday yesterday! I wasn't feeling very well (I have ME) but it didn't stop me enjoying could I not enjoy it with all these beautiful presents! I'm in a real crafty patch at the moment so whenever people asked me what I wanted for my birthday, that's what I asked for! I'm sure it got boring for people but for me, bliss!!!

So I thought I'd show you some feels a bit like bragging but it's certainly not, I just know that people put pics up when they get new stash and I always find it really interesting to have a nosey!!

1) Kezza recommended the Letraset rubs ons, so I'm looking forward to giving them a go. The rubber stamp in the middle is a High Hopes elephant stamp, it looks so cute!! Then I got all the Laura Ashley things from my brother and his girlfriend...I didn't even ask for them, so was a lovely surprise! I got some lovely new primas from Kate and Gaz. I haven't used primas before, from what I know of anyway, I just use any random flowes! So it's good to add to my stash :-)

2) Well, the following post was responsible for this little pile of goodies. I took a look at Poppicrafts and loved what I saw, I could've asked for much more!!

3) The Glitter Pot - This has got to be my FAVOURITE craft shop. Kezza is so lucky to live so near! I could spend loads here. I'd wanted some Lili's die cuts for ages so I'm looking forward to trying some of these. I'm also excited about the Craftwork Cards mini sentiments. I struggle for sentiments sometimes, they're the most basic thing but something I just don't have much of. So these will be really useful!

4) Non Craft Presents - Well I did get SOME non craft related presents!! I got some new music, which is always great! Really into Duffy at the moment. Then I got a nice Ripcurl top and a couple of photos! I went to a photo shoot with my brother and his girlfriend over a year ago. They got a special deal and invited me to go along too. It was fun but I wasn't able to view the pics, as I was away at the time. Anyway, it was such a surprise to see these. They're really nice, though I wish I'd been a bit slimmer, but was such a nice present!

Last but not least, I have come across lots of Blog Candy...and I just can't resist! The first is Steph who is celebrating reaching 20000 hits! The second is Karen who is celebrating setting up her own craft company and third is Katharina who is celebrating the new High Hopes stamps. And I mentioned one of the High Hopes stamps earlier, the elephant is not one of the new ones but it's gorgeous and the new ones look great too! Go check them out!

Great post birthday girl! I nearly bought the same set from Poppicrafts that you got - it was in my basket! Why is craft stuff so exciting?! I may have to give those rub ons a go as i never usually get on with them but maybe letraset is the way to go xx
