Just wanted to share a few pics from Crafting at Ally Pally yesterday. It was such a great day and the stand seemed to be really busy ALL the time. It was so much fun and I feel really lucky to have been there. Apologies as they're not great quality. I managed to forget my camera so these were all taken on my phone AND I had to manoeuvre around the crowds.
Here are the two Alisons (Butterfly and CraftyTrog) at the demo stand. Just look at all the gorgeous products behind them too... Sadly, not NEARLY enough of them came home to live with me (sniff!) but I did manage a fair few ;oD. Butterfly made so many fabulous tags. If you check out her blog over the next few days I'm pretty sure she said she is offering them as a giveaway.
Emma with the makers and takers
Starting to get busy....
Here's Leandra doing her thaing with Bistres (just arrived), Fresco's, Treasure Gold and lots of lovely PaperArtsy stamps...
Decisions, descisions..... It was lovely to hear everybody ooh-ing and aah-ing over the stamps, the new paints and all the great products.
Lots of laughs, lots of art and a bag full of goodies to bring home too (actually it was TWO bags; I went back for gorgeous Bistres and a jar of Golden Tar Gel). Perfect day really.
It was great to meet Jo, Helen, Lin, Claire, Kirsten, Pauline, Julie Ann, Lucy and all the lovely people who asked about my pumpkin (step outs coming as soon as I can sort them out). This week for sure, because I know Mary and Tracey Matthews are champing at the bit to start theirs. Tracey wants to enter hers in a competition. I'm on it Tracey. Don't worry. Hope you got home safely yesterday.
Hope they all had another great day today. I know Alison Hall was going back for more.
PS. I see Helen couldn't resist going back for more today too. She took some great photographs and you can find them on her blog
