Aintree Craft Show

May 23rd, 2011

Hello Everybody,

This weekend I had a fab time at the ICHF craft show at Aintree Race Course in Liverpool. Saw a lot of regular customers, it is nice to travel the country and meet up with customers at least once a year.

At Aintree my friends Leanne and Kayleigh the twins came to do some shopping and popped by to say hi. I can never tell which one is which,

They even bought me a surprise present, a gorgeous hand made make up bag! which they made themselves, they are both very talented young ladies. Think I will put my Nintendo DS in the bag, don’t want to mark it with make up. It was such a nice surprise, really made my day. Thank you very much Girls!

NEC Craft Show

March 31st, 2011

Hi Everyone

So sorry i have not put any post on for a few weeks. It has been hectic with the craft shows.

Had a fantastic time at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham last week. It was such a long week for us, we went to set up the stand on Wednesday and finished the show on Sunday. Phew! It was very tiring.

On Sunday it was a bit quieter, so I managed to get some shopping done. I bought myself a few sets of the new Go Create dies from Samuel Taylors. I love using scallops!

I love buying pretty papers, managed to find this pretty set of floral papers from Gadsby Crafts. The papers are from Do Crafts – Rose Garden Collections. Think I will use the papers with my new die cuts…..Can’t wait!

Went passed Crafts U Print stand and I had to have a picture taken with Crafty Bob. Won a prize on the tombola as well. Must have been my lucky day!!

Craft Show at Leigh Sports Village

March 17th, 2011

Hi Everyone !

Last week we were exhibiting at the Leigh Craft Show at Leigh sports village, which is organised by Sincerely Yours.

Managed to catch up with my friend Wendy she has a blog The Clipart Fairy where she does craft cds and downloadables. Wendy managed to do some shopping and bought lots of crafting goodies at the craft show.

I’ve know Wendy for a long time and first met her when she had a shop in Widnes. I still remember when i first went there to sell her some of our products and i was just stammering away because i was so nervous ! But bless her she was very good to me.
