Hi there folks!!! Had an amazing time at Ally Pally yesterday but definitely paying for it today! im on the heavy duty painkillers today but it was so well worth the pain. Not only the early start, the non stop walking but the 4 hours being on the coach are the cause!!!. Ally Pally is an amazing place and the best craft show i have ever been to.
I was so happy as i got to meet the gorgeous Sylvie (Gibmiss) and some of her awesome friends. We met when we got there and then we met up for lunch. I also got to meet Debby (Deb4000) and she is just lovely. I just wish there had been more time to have a good get together.
Me and Amanda, my friend that i went with, managed to spend some money. Here is a pic of my stash;
You are probably wondering what the wooden box is all about. There was an amazing stall selling alternate art projects with plenty of MDF!!! i love painting and making different things that cost £££££ made up in shops. Lots of shapes to make hanging photo frames, door signs, ornamental shapes to hang from doors etc. They were so so cheap. That box only cost £4.00 which i am going to make up for a memory box my friend Wendy.
Got some gorgeous House Mouse stamps and lots of odds and sods.
Although i am in agony today i am already thinking about the September show (gluton for punishment i know!). So nice meeting lots of different people and funnily enough when me and Amanda were getting on the coach there were 2 ladies that i knew so even if you went on your own everyone is so friendly and you are bound to see people that you know or make new friends with.
I heard earlier from Sylvie and she got back to Gibraltar safetly and she said what a wonderful time she had had.
Thanks for stopping by.
Big hugs, Clare xxx
