My weekend

Before I start talking about last weekend I wanna tell you that I finally did my first christmas-card! *whoohoo* It took a while before I could finish it but finally I´m done. I always have problems with my first card and it´s not easy doing christmas-stuff when it´s sunny and warm outside! ;o) But here it is: *tadaaa*

Ok, and now about the weekend. ;o) It started with another Stampin´Up!-workshop I did. the hostess asked me to do tags so I give everybody these ideas:

I love to do home decor and I think a decorated candle like the one I did is easy and quick to do but looks beautiful. It´s an idea for a small gift too. I was lucky that everybody liked my ideas!

I was home really late but had to get up really early. My sister Carola and I went to the "Stempelmekka". It´s Germanys biggest convention for stampers.

It was soooo much fun!!! I met so many people - some of them I haven´t seen for month and some of them I just know through internet. And they all were so nice and I wished I would have had more times to chat. But there were sooo many of them! I was there to shop too but it took several hours before I got the first change to see some stuff without being distracted. ;o)

My favorite booth was from Magnolia. I like their stamps and I think their booth was so cute! They had their rubber in little baskets and tags on it to show the image. And they had some AWESOME cards there. Great inspiration!

And are those woodcut Tildas sweet???

I just could have stand there and look for a long time! *lol*

Ok, but I wanted to use my time to do some shopping too. This is what I bought:

I was a little sorry that there wasn´t more scrapbooking-stuff. I didn´t like most of the papers they had. But I could have bought way more stamps! ;o) And I would have never guessed that I was going to buy a scor-pal. I always think and siad that I don´t need a tool just to score. Ok but then Gisi demonstrated it and I was done. *lol* I´ll see how much I´m going to use it!!!
Before I close this post I wanted to show you the next sneak of upcoming Stampin´Up!-stuff. What do you think?

Have a great day! - Coni
