Ally Pally

Good evening crafters.

That was a looonnnngggg drive home.  Shattered, but now home with my two happy dogs, who were just a little bit happy to see me.

What a smashing weekend we've had at Ally Pally.  I was lucky enough to demo all weekend with paints and stamps - obviously covered in a multitude of colours at the end of each day.  I shared my delight in watching what paint does when splattered onto wet card.....seriously, it never gets boring!  Thankfully, other people agree, and were just as keen to see the results as I was (i'm not out of a job yet then).

I was demoing with another selection of cool stamps from Carabelle - who were actually at the show!  It's the first time they have brought their products to a UK show, so I was thrilled when they actually reconised me.  Their designers are amazing, and it's so good to see all the finished samples and stamps in real life.

A usual Ally Pally is the best place to catch up with crafty pals.  There are always so many familiar faces.  Thank you to everyone who came to visit, who said lovely things, and brought us lovely things!  I always come away worn out, but happy.

Dave!  If you saw the wonderful poem I shared on facebook (all the colours of the distress pads)....this is the very gent who penned it for me.

I love theses ladies!!!!  Always laughing, always bringing us a ray of sunshine....and also THE BEST vegan food xxxx
