Magic in Waterstones

Belle and I spent a good 2 hours in Waterstones yesterday. She got her free reads and I got to flick through beautiful picture books. Both of us lounged on their generous sofa's and basically abused a good free read in the quiet of store. Ellie bought a Sponge Bob annual (which I will read too!) and I got the new Mike Gayle novel and this beauteous book here

Its truly inspirational and will accompany a home study course I'm doing on Fashion Design. Not that I want to a fashion designer per se (my god, that industry is more hellish than some other industries Ive worked on both present and past!) but I do want to have a stab at making my own clothes and pattern design from scratch. This course is perfect for that.

At the till, Belle and I spotted the 75% off shelf. My zombie-like eyes swirled at the sheer sight of it and I floated to it with my mouth salivating. I bagged these babies for almost **free**

Post it note/page makers - £2.00 (was £8.00 and look at that tin!)

Notebooks reduced from £1.50 to 75p

And my most bargacious bargain? This brolly here reduced from £12 to £3! I KNOW!!!!

Im off to teach at the Mj Crop Circle in Thatcham very excited because I have a lot of scrapping to catch up on as well as teach a couple of classes.

See you soon x

Fab bargains and I love the look of the book. I'll have to drop in to the store in town and see what they have.
