Close Ups...

...cor blimey and thrice alive... what a day yesterday was!!! THANK YOU, again, from the bottom of my heart, for all the amazing Tweets, texts, emails, Facebook comments and blog comments... it is totally overwhelming and very muchly appreciated!!! And wow!!! All those emails read out on the show!!! You really are awesome, do you know that!! Anyways... speaking of emails... I saw that they went into the "spotty potty" (hey, I saw Magic Hands I did!!!) and that there was then a draw to win one of the samples made on my segment of the show... well, I actually had made two samples during the first show so... seeing as only one was given away yesterday and being as I already have my own sample here, I thought I would offer up this card for you... if you want to own it, please just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on Monday December 12th.


So... wowzers, what a day! Did you hear me goof up? I could feel the giggles starting to build up after that little gem I came out with... "there's a bottle in the ball" Oh yes, indeed, not only did I say it once out loud, I went and said it again... oooops!




It was a really different kind of experience and all thanks goes to Dawn Bibby for making me feel relaxed and for helping me through my first shows. She is consumate professional and a very kind lady too. It was a nice feeling too... it is because of Dawn that I started this crafting lark... so it seemed like I had come full circle, if you know what I mean.. Julia did a cracking job with those Alcohol Inks... did you see her demo? HERE it is...





Anyways, those there pics are some close ups of the show samples I made using those divine Studio 490 stamps... and these pics below are pics of a pressie Grim got for me the other day to spruce up the Room of Stash... isn't it just TOO cute!!







It is a little battery/USB operated morphing Christmas Tree... I lurve it and it is making me a smidge festive... I think I should really go and get into the Christmas Spirit and have a mince pie and a little play at the 12 Tags that I have been neglecting! Right... best get a wiggle on, 101 things to do as usual... including a mountain of ironing! TTFN

You did so well Hels, I don't think anyone noticed your very small goof up! The samples were all beautiful. With Grim's gift to you, does that mean you will have to craft in the dark till after Christmas so you can enjoy your tree to it's full effect!

PaulineC said...

Really enjoyed your shows. However good you are at crafting it must be really nerve racking doing a TV show for the first time and LIVE too. You were brilliant and so different from the other things on C&C. Hope to see a lot more of you.

Jennie Atkinson said...

You were fabulous and it was great to see you at work and to see "proper" inky things on C&C. I have admired your work for so long. I assume you have been invited back and it won't be too long!

Fliss said...

A very big thanks and well done to you Hels as the show was fabulous and I'd never have guessed it was your first time on the box as your demos were awesome.
The little goof made me giggle too but it's just one of those things.
I too love those spools and NEED some as although I've seen them online, I had no idea how huge they are so they'll be on my Christmas list.
Hugs, Fliss xx

Rainbow Lady said...

You did a fantastic job my friend... even your little faux pas was nothing to worry about and Dawn made it sound funny. Fab samples too so I would love the chance to win your super card. Love your Christmas tree too
Love n hugz Cynthia x

Julia Watts said...

Barb Cady said...

What can I say dear? You're a natural and your tag was fab. proper crafting! They must keep you as a regular! (By the way, not abandoned Sunday Stamper am on Hols, no crafting tools with me, so will on return!) Love and congrats you star xx

Caz said...

Didn't notice the second time you said it!!!
I love your idea of putting the blue petals in between the others - would never have thought of that...really effective...another Hels' idea is about to be pinched.
Have recorded the shows to rewatch - I've told Lew I've got them (he left you a Facebook comment about it, don't worry, already sorted!)
Can't wait for the next show!!!!
Hugs

massofhair said...

Saw your first show yesterday on C&C & was very happy to see another proper inky messy guest. You have made me want to watch C&C again for your demos, your down to earth approach & clear instructions. What a joy to watch! Congrats on your fantastic debut. Looking forward to seeing the next shows on 17th Dec, will be recording for inspiration.
Take care :-)

It sounds like it all went well - I have recorded all three hours, but haven't had the chance to watch it yet.
Your samples are lovely and I'd be delighted if I won your beautiful card - thank you for the chance.
I'm loving Grim's tree too - he should be on commission as we'll all want one now!

I was so excited to watch you that I had it recording and I was watching in my craft room. You were such a professional it's hard to realise it was your first time on tele. I loved watching your demos and all your samples were to die for. Well done you and roll on the next one. Love your Crimbo tree.
Hugs Joanne xx

Katina said...

Hi Hels, I think I'm your newest follower after seeing the C&C shows the other day. You were brilliant and have inspired me to try a completely different type/style in my crafting. I fell in love with all the products and your samples were wonderful. Many thanks!

Joanna King (aka Asia K) said...

Hels, you were fantastic!!!! I was proud as punch watching my recorded C&C as if I was there myself lol ;))) You're a natural and who cares about little glitches, it just adds more flavour to the show! Hope to see more of your demos and your samples were gorgeous. Please send this one my way lol ;) Thanks for the tip about stamping with cosmic shimmer mists and for reminding me I need to do some ironing, too... ;p! Hugs, Joanna xx

Hi Hels, I had no idea you were going to be on C&C - I had recorded it as I usually do and have only just got round to watching it. Was delighted to see you there and I loved your demos and all the samples too. Well done and I am delighted you are getting the recognition you deserve.
Hugs Nicky

Marijane said...

I am soooooo disappointed that I missed your show. I tried to find it but my cable TV/internet provider didn't seem to carry it. I'm in the "states" and don't know if there are any ways for me to see it. Any ideas anyone? I have Comcast as a carrier.
