I've just got back today from a week's holiday in Kent - never visited that part of the world before: we had a lovely time, staying at a gorgeous boutique hotel in Royal Tunbridge Wells called the Brew House hotel , and visiting various places around Kent and East Sussex.
One of the highlights had to be the day that my husband went fishing, and I drove over to The Glitterpot, where I also met my crafty friend Karen for the first time. We have been online friends for over a year in a small friendship club started through a shared love of Penny Black stamps, so it was brilliant to finally get to meet. And what better place than the Glitterpot, which has got (amongst many other fabulous things) the biggest selection of PB stamps I have ever seen in one physical place. Karen is lucky enough to live about 20 miles from the Glitterpot so it wasn't her first visit, though I think I will probably have to revert to online ordering from now on lol!
So here we are - that's me on the left, and Karen on the right. You will notice that we had to get pictured surrounded by PB stamps - what you can see there is only a small selection of the whole!!
All in all we had a fab time - shopping ... chatting and getting to know each other .. and chatting with the lovely GP staff. All I need to do now is get going with some cardmaking to use my new acquisitions - hope to be back soon with my first post-holiday card, and also catch up with some blog hopping. Luckily I'm not back in work until Tuesday :-)
hope you've all had a great weekend!
