  • Hobbycraft at the NEC on the weekend

    Had an absolutely fab time on Saturday at the NEC, it's the first time I've been to a show like this and it was just craft heaven! There aren't many craft shops in my area, so to have everything you could ever want and more was just wonderful, I buy a lot of my products online or off Create & Craft, so to actually be able to see the goods in the flesh so to speak was lovely. Plus being a big Create & Craft fan, I was a bit starstruck as everyone was there, all the companies you see demonstrating on the telly were there, and everyone was so nice - that's crafters for you. Also the lovely Nigel & Stephanie from C&C were there and I had a lovely chat to Nigel, got a photo with him (see below) and a goody bag for my daughter who couldn't come, which was full of card, card blanks, stickers oh all sorts, it was so heavy that my arm is still aching from carrying it around all day.

    I spent a fortune, I bought stamps, cuttlebug embossing folders, stencils, stamp blocks, beads, findings oh and so much more. I was absolutely pooped by the end of the day (and so was my credit card ) but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Met Craftfairy off here at her stall too, hi Yvonne, lovely to meet you

    Really good day & I can't wait for the next one!

            have decided we're going to go next year
            so we're going to start saving some pennies in January so we've got loads to spend come November
            this year you could use your tesco clubcard points to buy the tickets so fingers crossed that will happen again next year
            we're going to make a few days of it as well and go to the chocolate factory and Birminghams shopping centre to do our christmas shopping
            ooh I'm excited already and I've got a whole year to wait lol
