Lincoln Show - Sincerely Yours

Well having been cooped up for so long I finally got out to the Sincerely Yours Craft Show at Lincoln today, even if it was a tad warm.  I really wanted some stencils/masks to use with my pan pastels as I've only got 2, but as you can see, I've rectified that now!!!  I also picked up a few stamps.  I'm really not a lover of clear stamps but we saw a demo with them so decided to give them a go.  The Stampendous and Graphic 45 stamps are cling mounted.  And finally in the top right, some beads. Oh and I picked up a box of Papermania chipboard butterflies and dragonflies cheap (£1).

A close up of the beads.  The long silver hook is a bookmark, I had to ask too!! You attach beads to the end and put the metal piece in the book page.

This is what I really went to the show for, but alas I didn't buy any as they were too expensive.  But it was lovely to see all of the colours together, side by side.  I've made a list of ones I need to order from Oyster Stamps as they have them on offer, buy 5 for £20, these at the show were 3 for £16.  

And then the biggest surprise of the day, Maz spotted Neet doing a bit of demo-ing on the Oyster stand.  I told Maz it couldn't be her because she wasn't going.  She was really, really naughty and didn't tell me coz she wanted to surprise me, she nearly did as we were on our way to the exit to leave for home and if Maz hadn't of said something, we'd of gone home non the wiser!!  

And then we went outside and I met Chas, Neets other half.

Oh how I wish I could have been there - sounds like you had a wonderful time. And those metal bookmarks are great - I have made some.

We're coming to Lincolnshire in June - staying in the fabulous barn we stayed at last year in June. You'll have to tell me if there are any great craft shops worth visiting

Neet said...

You certainly saw more than I did and bought much more variety. But then I was looking for a certain two ladies when I walked around. Must shop with you two some time.
It was great to meet up with you even if you did curse me for not telling you.
See you again in the morning!
