Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I just couldn't resist having the title.....As Seen On TV !!!
I was like many of you I expect watching Sue on Hocahnda yesterday afternoon and I saw that the 'Millie' Die was featured on the Line up, so I decided to send an email in with the photos of the two cards above attached, to my complete amazement at the end of Sue's 5pm show they featured my cards!!! Sue loved them too, I hope some of you saw it.
I also shared my cards with Sue on Instagram and she messaged me back saying ''Absolutely Stunning'' in my eyes there is no higher accolade!
I was absolutely exhausted yesterday and unusually for me spent most of the day on the sofa but this gave me the hugest Buzz!
I will leave the link below in case any of you want to pop over to In2craft to have a look at this die and some of the many on offer, I will admit that I went over yesterday and bought some Glitterbitz and Lustre Polish!! Shhh!!!
I was also really suffering after our day at Farnborough, this was the worst I have felt after a Craft show, I had had a really rough night on Friday, having only maybe 50 minutes sleep the whole night, mostly because I just couldn't get comfortable and my AF was giving me hell. Milo was also very unsettled which is never a good thing when you are trying to sleep.
Farnborough was good, although I'm not sure if Sue, Margaret and Brenda agree that it wasn't 'as good' as previous years.
Firstly the parking, before it was in an indoor structure that adjoined the show venue,( a bit like the one that they have at the NEC for disabled parking). So you didn't have far to walk or wheel yourself, this new building had outdoor parking that was far enough from the venue to cause issues for someone that really struggled with walking or had to wheel themselves in a wheelchair, there were also a large amount of steps up to the entrance, they did have a ramped access but it was Very long and quite steep, there is no way I could have got myself in there on my own, Margaret wouldn't have managed either.
There were also a lot less Craft Stands there too, before there was a huge range of Parchment craft stands, I didn't see one this time, there were a long line of rooms doing workshops, I think that there were one or two this time, there were a few make and takes though. I just think that there wasn't that much choice as far as range of products, for instance apart from Distress Oxide inks there were virtually no Tim Holtz products on sale. Lots of SW dies, Tonic dies, Crafters companion Embossing Folders had a lot of repetition, there were some favourites like Honey Doo, Inkyliscious etc. It was lovely to catch up with Anne at 'The Art of Craft' stand, they have now expanded their range of dies etc, looking forward to seeing them again at Ally Pally.
Right now I'm not sure if we will bother with Farnborough again, especially if Stamperama is on the same weekend, we will probably try that show next time.
The highlight as always was spending the day with lovely friends surrounded by lots of crafty goodness, oh and Margaret's Lemon/Coconut cake of course!
Today I will hopefully be playing with my new crafty goodies, making some lovely backgrounds for this weeks challenge.
I hope that you all have a lovely day too,
Special hugs to Pat and Pete as always xxx
Love and hugs to all of you too,
