Stamperama show, Stevenage - today

Hi all, just got home from Stevenage with some goodies (ahem!) from the show.

It was busy to start with but by 2ish had practically emptied... but we had a good time and met a few Twits (though not as many as sometimes sadly)  I didn't take as many photos as usual, either..
 an early cuppa and sit down.. Karen, Jo, Lewis (Caz's son) (man in purple no idea!) Miriam, Caz and Lin
 bit later we had another sit down.. only there weren't enough chairs so I took up my normal crafting position..

 you get a different view down here!
 but then I got a chair!
 Paperartsy was busy all day... no pics of the stand as there are new releases for the trade show next week, that we can't share with you yet..
 Lin, rocking the short hair!
 stash (1)
stash (2)

there is another one but I can't show that!

There were only 20 stalls there today, lots fewer than normal, and like I say by about 2 it had got quite empty (which did mean you could get in to look at the stock nicely!)


Looking forward to playing with some of this soon, but probably not today!

Memo to self....make sure to keep a smiley face when Helen is around with her camera....although the shot where I was "concentrating" on Lin's demo, my non-smiley face is blocked!! LOL!!! Lovely photos, shame we couldn't have had more PAtwits there but was good to meet up again. xx

WOW, wow, wow. I have stencil envy. These are fantastic. I also like that you purchased white lace that can be dyed any color you choose. I enjoyed seeing everyone who went and the fun you obviously had. Most impressive stash. Still haven't seen infusions (or for that matter brushos) in person.

NIce new toys to play with, and nice photos of you all chatting. Shame to hear it was so low on stands, and emptyish for half the day too - doesn't bode well!

Small show but bet you still had a great time especially as Paper Artsy were there and by the look of the stash I have no doubts that you did. I really need a show fix Lol! Just back from the Gym, trying to get back into it after my cold though the cough hasn't quite gone yet but I did go in the pool today, first time in ages. Have a great week, Angela xXx
