I am sure you will forgive the lateness, and hopefully I will be able to show you some of the new stuff I wll be bringing back with me. (I know I will spend a fortune on crafting stuff)

Children will love creating or recieving them so why not give them a try.
I have shared with you a way to save your self some money, if you like to use lots of different inks to add definition to your projects.
By using a new tool each time, it will keep all your inks in pristine condition, and not ending up muddy because the colours have mixed.
Here is a way to make your very own
