Happy Stampers North West Stamp Festival

We've survived our first Craft Show!!  It was an absolutely fantastic experience and although we were all completely exhausted, we were still smiling at the end of the day lol

Here are a few pictures from Saturday (taken before the doors opened and the chaos descended lol)....

The Clearly Besotted Girls (L-R) Caryn, Aimes & Me!

The (tiny) Stand 

The Samples

The Husband lol

The Make & Take Area

Caryn and Aimes were absolute superstars (so was Dean!), the event organisers were amazing and every single person I met on the day was exceptionally lovely.  Thank you to everyone who stopped to say hello, you truly were the highlights of my day :)

I could happily sleep for the entire week but the October release teasers start tomorrow and I have nothing prepared....better get to it then lol

Happy Monday, please send some virtual energy in my direction if you have any spare ;) xxx

It's looking great Stephanie all so neat and organized I can imagine you girls had a blast and I think you'll have lots of new customers coming your way. If i could I would send you some virtual time but i'm sure you'll manage to make another great release for october can't wait to see what you have in store for us.
