So many stamps, so little time...

We're back home after the show today.  It was great fun doing the show with Leonie, she is such fun!  Talk about a kid in a toy shop, she wanted all the products in the show and got really excited when we went through the cards before the show started.  She was also game for wearing a Stamp Man apron, I said she didn't have to but by then she'd already grabbed it and was half way through putting it on!

We were chatting about this, that and the other before and after the show, we reminised about our shop years ago when she first visited, Moonglow and all sorts of other things.  Her enthusiasm for crafting is brilliant, I could have carried on chatting to her all day, but, we all had to get on our way home. 

There were a lot of stamps in the show to get through as well as all the accessories and the hour just flew by, we agreed that it should have been a longer show. 

Unfortunately I haven't seen the show yet as we had a signal loss again on our Sky and it is all pixilated, so I will have to record a repeat and hope it works.  Here are the repeat times in case you missed it too

16 Jan 2010 11:00 PM - 12:00 AM

17 Jan 2010 05:00 AM - 06:00 AM

I didn't get all my demos done, but I will show you on here once I get some photo's taken,  hopefully tomorrow if there is enough light.  It's been a gloomy day outside today hasn't it?  It was nice to get home and see that a lot of the snow has now gone though.

All in all a lovely day, which I was especially glad about as I hadn't been feeling too great and hadn't slept well, I started with a sore throat on Thursday and have had a bad back all week, although as I was flopped out on the hotel bed last night it was a bit better today, hence the other reason why Ian drove me down.  I had initially been worried about the snow but the forecast looked much better, so I would have been OK on that front.  I'm just hoping that my back is better before I travel down for Wednesday's show.  I'll tell you all about that another time, it is something very different for me!!

Leonie went off clutching some of the scrunched papers I'd given her, she was stroking them so it would have been cruel not to let her take them home:)  I wonder what she will make with them!!

Well I'd better get on and make some dinner...

I hope you are all having a great weekend!



  1. Hi Jill, glad the show went well. I'm away for the weekend & won't be able to catch the repeats either :-( so hope they'll repeat them again some other time. In case not, please do put some of the samples on the blog. x

  2. Hi Jill

    Sorry to hear you've been feeling a bit under the weather, it must be dreadful when you know you've got such a long journey ahead of you. Glad all the travelling went well.
    The show was great, I don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing you scrunch starburst stains, that lilac was gorgeous. You're such a natural at C&C and Leonie was great.
    Looking forward to seeing your other samples and shall wait with baited breath for Wednesday's show.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, it's supposed to be nice and sunny and almost tropical tomorrow!!!!

  7. Glad to hear you and Ian are back home safely. I recorded your show and haven't been able to watch it all yet. Saw the beginning, Leonie was like a kid in a sweet shop and I am not surprised she wanted everything, ME TOO !!!!!!
