My London Crafty Haul
I might have mentioned that a few weeks ago I was going on vacation to London. I enjoyed myself but I didn’t buy a lot of things because I wanted to have experiences.
I did buy a few things though. There is no way I could go on vacation and not get something!
I picked up a three pack of Zebra pens. As you know, I like a good pen. It had to be medium or bold point. These ballpoint pens have a medium writing point. And isn’t the casing gorgeous? A rose gold pen just makes writing better.
If I never purchased another notebook in my life, I’d still have too many. There is something wonderful about cracking open a new notebook. I picked out this illustrated icons of London notebook by Sterling Products. I’m not sure what I’ll use it for but whatever I use it for will be enhanced by the London Eye on the cover.
Of course I picked up stickers. To many people these are children’s gifts. But, for me and other crafters, stickers are so versatile! You can use them in your Happy Planner or Erin Condren Planner. You can use them on scrapbook layouts or mini albums. You can even add them to friend mail. I purchased a London bumper sticker and pack of puffy London icon stickers. I can’t wait to use them.
I also picked up postcards. No, these aren’t the ones I’m going to mail. These are the ones I’ll use in projects. The fronts are brightly colored and the opposite site has a build in place for journaling. Post cards are perfect for that! Spoiler alert! There are going to be several projects coming up from my trip overseas so stay tuned.
I told you that it was a small haul. It was small but meaningful. I only took one suitcase so I had to make it small.
Don’t worry though. I can do a lot with this haul. Just keep coming back and see what I do.
