The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Stamperama at Stevenage
Got home a little while ago from the Stamperama stamp show at Stevenage... Great to catch up with some friends, but the show wasn't as good big as it's been in the past, and some companies were missing who should have been there....
Still good to see Paperartsy of course, where I started with a make and take using infusions and distress oxides..
taken by Racquel (standing) and using her stamps for Paperartsy - great to catch up with Miriam and Wendy who were both there, we grabbed the first make and take session. (tag in stash photo later on)
Lin and I stopped for an early cuppa and Lin had breakfast, couldn't believe how empty it was - this was about 10.30 ish, normally it's really busy first thing..
back to Paperartsy for some quality demos and chat, Leandra experimenting trying to seal the Oxides to make them permanent... sort of worked! I'll leave it to her to share her secret some time!
Realised I hadn't taken many photos...so snapped a few quickly.... Lauren was also on the demo stand with Leandra, was great to catch up with Claire (red tshirt) Alison in her fab crochet top, and Miriam watching Leandra...
backs of people deliberately not turning round...great to also catch up with Jo V (with the ponytail)
and great to see Lucy too, even if only towards the end before I left
and a very small stash haul... although I have already got the Prima modelling paste, I was hoping to get the Golden one we'd used on the fabric workshop but Leandra had taken the Prima stuff instead and I didn't realise I had it already... some beads for the book and some lacy trims for the book...
No-one had a big gelli plate there so am about to go order one online!
