Hi.. and a big wave from Holland!! 🙂
Sure having a good time, but absolutely no crafting done apart from going to the KreaDoe in Utrecht!
This show was Amazing!! and sooo big! I could have spend a week down there, well.. maybe 3 days because I am sure I haven’t seen a third of it on the day!
There was a special area for kids, another area dedicated for workshops.. and a huge Christmas market too..
Thousands of stalls with everything from Beads to Scrapbooking supplies, decoupage to modeling trolls. I did pick up some wool and crochet needle.. and managed to make my own crocheted flowers of which I’m so proud.. I now don’t want to use them on any of my projects.. but will do soon!
The highlight for me though was the fact that the Magnolia stand was there where I got to meet the lovely Jacqueline van der Sar, who I’m sure most of you know *Ü* She was helping out on the stall that day and spotted me instantly *big grin* and also got to meet John from Magnolia himself!
After I had my fill and stocked up on all the ones I wanted.. I tried to persuade John & Magnolia to come over to the UK and do the shows over here.. and they might just do that next year!! I’m keeping my fingers crossed and even offered to help them out in if they come to the NEC!! 😉
Agnes, I’m so sorry I missed you that day.. would have been lovely to meet you too!!
Another fab bit was that apart from all the lovely stash I just had to buy.. I had the chance to sub to a Dutch Magazine while I was over there, and yep.. its Cards Only where my SugarNellie DT buddy Tiets is featured in every issue.. so I’m well thrilled!
For now.. so sorry for the lack of projects.. Just got sooo much to catch up on with everyone here..
and I wanted to quickly mention that I can receive all the emails send to me but for some strange reason I can’t reply while I’m over here.. something to do with my outgoing server.. so if you have send me a question it will be answered as soon as I get back
