Back from the NEC

 Sarah, the owner of Hotshotcrafts
 Wow what a great show the NEC was. It was so busy on the Hotshotcrafts stand. The new Papermania Woodland and Oriental ranges sold extremely well.

The best part was meeting up with blogging pals. so a big HELLO to
Brenda from Floral Fantasies Such a lovely lady. I was so excited to meet her that I completely forgot to tell her how gorgeous all her cards are
Dawn from Allpinkgirl. She is so Glam. And another lovely lady too. Thanks for the tips Dawn with the Inkidinks (and everything else I bought too) Your cards are stunning. It was lovely to see her family too.
Lynne from Stamp around the block. Yet another lovely lady. Lynne has a great digi stamp blog too Sentiments 4 you
Max from Scrappymax. So glad you made it to the show Max and looked me up. Max is special as she is the first blogging friend I met in person!. I met her mum too who enjoyed the cake show.
It was also great to see members past and present of my card making clubs . They were, Diane ( and her husband Norman), Maggie,Sarah, Karen, Mary and her daughter Janet, Jane, Daisy, Grace, Karen, Lydia and Cindy. The "colour blind" aunt and niece ( who I normally see at Ally Pally....sorry I can't remember your names. How bad of me but it was lovely to see both of you.)

 Also hi to Lyndsey and Fern from Lyndseymariedesigns who owns a craft shop local to me

 Mum and dad made it for the Sunday morning too.
The photos show the goodies I bought . I can't wait to start using them. And there are the Hotshot girls at 8 o'clock in the morning on Sunday enjoying a muffin and coffee before the show started!
Have a great evening. Keep warm
hugs Sarah x

  5. Morning Sarah

    It was soooooo good to meet you.

    The whow was really great, but I can tell you that I thoght about your poor feet more than once over that weekend and thinking how utterly exhaused you would be come Monday.

    I've only ever do a single day demoing and that is more than enough for me, so four days on the trot must be something else.
