Please click on the penny black images...

I've now photographed all my penny black wooden stamps... there might be a couple hiding out in the shed...... wow not sure how long I have been collecting i'd say probably no more then 5yrs...

i just wish i was in america.. and then i could bake cakes and visit PBSTAMPS.COM and buy lots and lots of penny blacks.... Dick has a great selection.... and its like christmas getting a parcel all the way from the states

WOW!!! 77 penny black stamps

I'm no sure I want to know how many black stamps I have... i think it must be over 100. i have 77 shown on here, i'm of to photo the rest...I also have some of the clear sets but won't be taking photos of them.

craftsulove have free P&P till monday, so i've just purchased the scor bug and they also sell cake making bits... so i think i've purchased some sugar... the type you see on cakes in expensive shops... and free P&P can't say no.... i've been waiting for almost 2 weeks to get the email for free postage :)

daughter bought me the hmmingbird cakebook.... yum the cakes are lovely, especially the cupcakes and frosting to go on top... I have lots of sprinklings to go on top of the cakes but i really wanted the glittery sugar.

started the topper for my penny black saturday challenge card, using copics... the new colours that i bought are great... artymiss still has free postage, i think till the end of the month.
shed is now half tidy... but i can't help myself.... then i start to craft lol

Things I need to do...
update my penny black gallery... I have lots of stamps, Can't help buying Penny Black they are just so sweet...
I have placed bids on ebay for some new ones, 2 days to go..

tidy shed!!! wow what a mess, but there is always enough room to squeeze in and make a card..

OOOO my camera is fixed.... what a worry, the lens just needed a good clean... all my pictures have a black mark on them.... but at least they won't from now on
