Going, Going, Gone

Fabulous crafting day, the hustle and bustle was immense at Create and Craft yesterday, I arrived at 9am bumping into Sara Davies at the reception desk and having a catch up later in the green room, I blinked and it was 11 am and time for the first show with Dave Bradford (lovely Man) we had great sales from all you wonderful crafters and by the time we were ready for the 2nd show the panic set in that we wouldn’t have enough so we pulled out all stops and secured more stock so that you wouldn’t miss out.

Here is a couple of shots of the second show with the lovely Ellis Ward

The first is meet and greet

It soon became obvious that the massive stock just wasn’t going to last as you went into a buying frenzy and yes we had a sell out.

This is Ellis and myself telling customers to check out their basket if they were on line.

well done to all those that managed to get both cd roms.

I got home just after 6:30 and had a well earned cuppa.

Today is my Birthday so as I am writing this in the early hours of the morning I’m figuring I should climb the stairs and have a lie in.

Happy Birthday Jak. Hope you get a well deserved rest and are treated like a queen for the day.

I GOT MINE!!! The CD's were top of my 'must have' list and I had to check the price online to make sure they hadn't made a mistake on the screen it was so low! I saw both of your shows and now can't wait for the CD's to arrive... the postman will feel like he is being stalked next week!

Thank you to you and the La Pashe team for bringing such a large and wonderful bundle of resources and all of your inspiration to us crafters. We love you.
Hugs, Buttons x

Happy Birthday Jak. I really enjoyed your show yesterday, I was lucky enough to get the two CD's. I already have the first one so I intend to give the duplicate to my daughter who has a birthday coming up very soon.

Happy Birthday Jak
saw the shows yesterday and dived in to buy the cd's at the beginning of the afternoon show . Just got to find where Pete put my printer when i moved in a few weeks ago . For those of you not in the uk you can watch a live stream on the create and craft website - if you can cope with the time difference .
I hope you get spoiled rotten today and manage to do exactly what you want to do today
love Chris ( northampton )
