How can we thank everyone that came to see us at the NEC over the weekend - you blew our socks off!!!
Not only did Tony and I break an all time daily total on Saturday, but we also broke the record for the largest UK show EVER. Remember we have been exhibiting at shows for 16 years and so during these current tough times, not even in our wildest dreams did we expect to be so busy. Thankfully Rachie, Bev and the team had loaded the van with a mega amount of stock, so we only ran out of some ribbons during Sunday. Maybe they knew something?!
We met such wonderful people and had a delightful time, it was fun and enjoyable. It was fantastic to speak to so many of our customers and blog followers, and to hear your stories. It was great to see so many cake visitors, and thank you for coming specially from the Cake show to find us. All the projects were carefully scrutinised and photographed. Although I do think Wilkinsons should give me some commision for sending so many people to their stores for the felt hearts I certainly hit the spot with that Hello wednesday project HERE.
When Rachie saw the state of the ribbon units this morning, well........, sorry but her comment is unprintable!! She and the girls could not believe it, Bev even asked "What had I done with the ribbons?" Ummmmm Sold them! They have been busy restocking for Paris, which we leave for on Sunday.
I only managed to catch up with the Friday FREEBIE comments this morning. Our hotel had no mobile signal and they do not offer wi-fi, so I was a bit in limbo all weekend. Thanks for all your super messages. Mollie did the honours of picking from the Bingo bag this week.
The winner is number 34 = Joanne Edwards
Ooh another show, I can only imagine the goodies that the lucky visitors will get to browse!! Hope it goes (or is going to be accurate) very well indeed for you x
Thank you Joanne, it did! If you send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org I will let you have all the details for your voucher, I am sure you will have a little wishlist already.
That's me done for tonight I am pooped!! I have some super Challenge goodies to share with you this week, they were hand delivered to the stand, I have had to put them under lock and key - Rachie has fallen head over heals in love with one of the cards. To be honest I am not sure any of the creations would be left in the box if I left it on the work table overnight!!!
