Doncaster & beyond

Morning everyone,

What a great time Bev & I had at Summer Crafting in Doncaster last weekend. We met so many lovely people, some new faces and lots of "old" acquaintances such as Tina, Betty, Mrs Ben and Denise & Ginny. Bev had a great time so much so that she wants to do it again at the NEC in November!! Thank you to everyone who came to say "Hello".

So today I'm off on my travels down the A1 to Peterborough for 2 shows tomorrow at 9.00am & 2.00pm. I hope some of you will be watching even if it's just to see the inspirational cards my great team of girls make.

Yesterday I was given the designs for the new Christmas CD ROM "A Christmas Wish". OMG they are fantastic. If you loved the Garden Delights CD ROM you will immediately want this one. Bev is talking 8" x 8" exploding boxes. I'll need a Pickfords lorry at this rate. Well, I have my car to pack and Maisie to walk before I go. She's already looking at me with the big sad brown eyes as she has seen my travel bag so I will have to redeem myself by taking her on a long walk and then bribing her with treats before I leave.

See you tomorrow.

Happy crafting,

Life goes on......

And that's just what Mum would have said to me. I'm still struggling but it's a day at a time, some are good, some are not so good but it's early days so I keep telling myself.

So what am I up to? Well hopefully you were all watching the launch of our new collection of CD ROMs The Cookie Collection with the first title being Garden Delights which I have to say has been very well received. I've been wanting to work with this style of artwork for ages and finally got my wish when the Head Baker said "Go for it". Weren't the girls' samples gorgeous? They did me proud.

So what's next? Well Bev the Blade & I are off to Doncaster at the weekend as we have a stand there. It's stand 67 right in the bottom corner. Bev is so excited as this will be her first retail show "behind" the counter. She is counting the sleeps LOL.
I'm busy sorting out the display boards and the Head Baker has given me loads of special offers as treats for you so please keep some of your pennies at the ready. I hope to see lots of you there and meet up with some "old" acquaintances too.

Happy crafting,
