The Works is one of my favourite stores here in the UK. They sell a little bit of everything: books, toys, games, art stuff, craft stuff. And they have very good prices too. I recently did an online order and got myself a whole bunch of goodies.
I got an adhesive roller, because they’re always useful. And I got this chalkboard marker because I’m always eager to try out a new white pen.
The chalkboard marker isn’t too bad. Better for drawing onto black than for adding accents to stuff, but that’s okay. It is a chalk marker after all, not a paint pen.
I got a pack of off-brand Sharpies, for a future blog project that you’ll see eventually.
I got some cute Christmas paper. Possibly for a blog project, possibly because I’m addicted to cute papers. Let’s just say both.
Some stamps. The alphabet set also has a whole bunch of border stamps.
Some Christmas washi tapes. Initially intended to be a Christmas present for myself – I like to get bits throughout the year and wrap them up so I forget about them. But I think I’m gonna use them to make Christmas cards at some point.
A wooden box. The Works does a wide range of these, in different sizes and designs. I love them. You can decorate them, but I also think they look pretty cool as they are.
Some more papers. Pretty pretty papers. I may have involuntarily sighed happily when I flipped through these.
Some sheets of foamboard. Not very glamourous. For a future project.
Another one of these blank covered notebooks that I like.
And finally some decoupage papers. The stars and the tartan are for a specific project. The snowflakes were just cos they’re pretty.
So, how many of these teased projects do you think you’ll see this year?
