...cor blimey, what a totes-amazeballs weekend that just was! Alexandra Palace is my favest show... I think it is because it is such a lovely venue and there are soooo many stands to look at (I have never once managed to see them all) and of course, I get to sit and play with ink and Studio 490 stashly goodies all weekend... fun! Best of all, I also get to meet up with loads of lovely crafters - some whom I have been chatting with in Blogland and on emails... time to catch up with friends old and new... perfection eh?
So.. that there is my demo desk yesterday morning... I should have taken an "after" shot too... it was a whole lot messier than that by the time I had finished. I was sitting next to Julia this weekend... and I was full of intentions to get loads of pics during the show... so, Saturday, armed with camera, I set about taking pics... only to find the battery was dead ...whooops!!! So... re-charged battery and camera came back with me yesterday and the first thing I did was get a snap of Julia... it's a lovely pic isn't it?
And... if you nip over to Julia's blog, you will see some of her pics of the weekend... including this one of me... getting messy with ink....
Meeting up with Minxy, Gillian and Alison was as fab as ever... Gillian was my personal shopper for the weekend too... and thank you girls for keeping me fed and watered... here we all are, sitting on the steps yesterday afternoon.. posing with our Tim bags...
And then Minxy says that she has this journal book thingy and she wants me to add a page to it. Well, ok, I am rubbish at journalling, I just don't "get" it... but... Minxy was insistent.. and having been totally fazed by the other entries all in there from Lin, Leandra, Laura and Sam, I set about doing something Studio 490... and because I can "be like that", I added a grunge rose to the book too... well, Minxy will always remember that look on my face when I was trying to colour that page ... every time she can't close the book lol *snort*
Anyways... that's all for today... I have to unpack (yuk) my stuff... and put it away again.. and tidy the Room of Stash (all that sample making made it a bit... erm... messy) oh and I have some tellybox stuff to catch up on.. Dexter & Coronation Street omnibus, here I come!! Thanks for looking... have a grand day ... TTFN
