I meant to show you my latest stash additions yesterday in my post... but I forgot.. Still never mind that just means that I get to pop up in your blog reading list again and say hi!
My latest stash additions are actually all related to making cards. As you have seen over 2011 I have been stitching for the Craftbubble "Crazy for Kitties" group birthday and Christmas exchanges. This has been such fun and most of us have signed up again for 2012. We also have some newbies in the list as well.
With the card exchanges I always like to send a small "kitty" inspired gift. For 2011 I managed to find some kitty notebooks and fridge magnets, but I always have my eye out for anything that has a kitty on it and is small enough to mail overseas with the card. On the weekend when we were out shopping I found a shop that had lots of kitty things to buy - so I did! As Hubby said, "if you don't get them now when you see them, you probably won't be able to find them the next time you come looking for them', and that is so true.
So here's what I got - kitty magnets, bookmarks, key rings and hangers. Lots of pink ones... which wasn't planned it was just how it happened! So that's all the gifts for next year's birthday exchange sorted, but it won't stop me looking for kitty inspired things as you just never know what you will find when you least expect to. It feels good to be so organised.... now all I have to do is to be organised and on time with my stitching!! That might be a challenge....

Well, I guess that's about it for today. I hope that the rest of your week goes well, see you all again real soon!
Til next time, happy stitching and happy stashing!
