With EXCITEMENT!!!! I want it ALL, was one comment of many from some of the fantastic shopaholics at ALLY PALLY.
It was an absolutely brilliant show, CREDIT CRUNCH ! what credit crunch???
If any of you are reading this THANK YOU for all your lovely comments, we put so much effort into getting the stand just right, it still amazes me how it takes us 5-6 hours to put it up and it comes down in 1.5 hours, but not without ALL the help I get, you GIRLS were FANTASTIC, SUPER, BRILLIANT and you made it such fun, even though I was a complete WIMP (THANKS BEV, BANANA FROG)! I got a wee bit ill on the Saturday and nurse Maggie MADE me take a bit of a rest in the car for half an hour, but I felt so guilty as the stand was PACKED nearly all day, sorry for those of you who couldn't even get onto the stand.
Sadly I still didn't feel good on Saturday night, so I didn't go out with the CTM girls, but our lot did and Oh! what a night I missed, but I'll not worry as one of the other girls got a video of some of the ACTION. I don't think I'll be putting it on here, let's just leave it at that.
HEY!!! I don't want to forget to say a great big THANK YOU also to MUM, NINA and POLLY for keeping the shop going while we were away, you're all STARS.
I'm still feeling rough but I'll be back in the shop tomorrow putting it all back together and bringing in some GREAT NEW STOCK, the new KAISER stuff is BRILL as is the new CRAFTWORK CARDS CHRISTMAS BITS and the pearlised cardstock is LUSH, you may come in and stroke.
I'll see if I can sort some piccy's out of the show in the next post.
I'll leave you with this last thought:-
Remember to keep the GERMS at bay and cross your legs when you sneeze!!

It was a great weekend and this is just one of the many lovely comments we received. We even had the £7M Lottery winners from A1Carers in Hornchurch shop with us and not content with shopping once, they came back again.

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
