Back home from Birmingham and into the warm. We had a lot of fun at the NEC while at the HobbyCrafts show. It seemed to be snowing the whole time the Fiskars Team were there, I’ve never known it to be so cold in March before. Even though the winter decided to stay for longer than normal, the lovely crafty ladies and gents still managed to venture out and come to see us, it was great to see you all, meeting the regular crafters and new ones alike. We spent a fabulous 4 days together and I will miss my buddies Kath and Rachel, however, we will be together again in November for the next NEC show. Ready to get into mischief again, I’m sure.
This time, I had time to shop as I didn’t have to do the Prima shows, and let me tell you, I managed to get some fab stuff. Anything sparkly and I go weak at the knees and there was no lack of glitter, gems and shiny items. I could definitely have brought the lot so I did have to seriously discipline myself.
There are some pictures missing due to the fact that I am totally amazed at how much I crammed in my car, I obviously had problems with self control, and haven’t emptied it yet!! I think a visit to craft buyers anonymous is due.
I also got a melt pot, which I’m really looking forward to having a lot of fun with, and if you’re a novice at using one, like me, let’s learn together. I know I’ll make lots of mistakes and I promise I’ll tell you about them.
In the next few weeks I am going to make time (space) and sort out my stash so I can get on and do some making. I will be using both new and old craft box goodies so if there’s anything you want me to do let me know.
I’m off to get ready for my airport run now, lucky me!! So, let’s see what the roads are like to Heathrow and hopefully I’ll get back at a decent hour and the journey won’t be too long.
So, until next time
