THE JOURNEY SO FAR....

I can't believe it's been two weeks already since I left to come out to the states to teach, it's flown by.
I started off working the Collins Show in Orlando, teaching the retailers the benefits of WOW! Embossing Powder and working with some great retailers, here's a little snap of the make and take necklaces we did. We added foil for that little bit of opulence.
The show was great, it always is, we're constantly learning from it.
Once the show was finished, I had to get ready to travel up to the Carolina's to start my stour tour. 2 States, 4 Stores, 4 Days, 8 Classes, 107 fabulous women
The first day was an 8 hour car journey, I wasn't looking forward to this, I mean, who would ??? But it actually went quite quick.
First stop was Scrapbooks by the Sea in Myrtle Beach, fabulous store, fabulous ladies, did an impromptu demo on the same evening as getting there, then did set up ready for the next day of teaching.
Doing a little demoing

A little R and R on Myrtle Beach waiting for our dinner reservation.


Next day we drive to Columbia, South Carolina to The Stamping Place, again great store great ladies.




Judy was an embossing super hero.
Then it's on to Boiling Springs, North Carolina at Dorothy's Stamps and Scraps



Jeanette cracked me up all day, hilarious woman,
 and the above piece of furniture, well I don't know anyone who wouldn't want this in their craft room...given the space, it was at least 8 FT wide and 6ft high, full of printers trays...oh boy !!!

Last port of call was Betty's Scrapbooking in Greensboro North Carolina, 




 The lovely Nancy,


Got to meet this lovely lady, Buffy St. John fabbi artist, going to give her technique a try, I was so nervous as she took my class... Gulp !!! But she loved it :) :) 
I had such an amazing time with all these (and all those you can't see) peeps, they certainly know 
how to have fun, and I want to thank WOW! for giving me the opportunity to do it and the store owners for believing in me and of course the fabulous customers who took the classes and made it so memorable.
Ricky's out here with me now and we're having a little holiday, so far it's been FUN!!! 







Savannah is beautiful !!!
Let the fun continue.....
Hugs

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
