NEC

Hello all and Happy Monday, although I'm a little tired today....and no wonder after the fabulous time I had at the NEC......which I have decided stands for.....Necessary Education for Crafters.....
I have many stories to tell from Toilet stories....(Sam), tickets traumas (me) and nearly being evicted from the station (Clare), but I'm saving them all for my book.....lol....
Here are some photos....this is one of a few of us at the Clarity Stamp stand ....day 1....


Some of us were lucky enough to go to a great workshop with my lovely friend Clare Charville ....here we are....


At our Clarity meal we all got a little silly with our napkin holders....


And yes, it did look like an advert for SpeckSavers....


Now, those of you who watch the classroom shows will recognise the name Massimo ...he's 5 years old and is one of Theresa Pace's sons.....and oh, he is a wiz with the Gelli Plate....here he is meeting Barbara....we all had a little tear in our eyes...it really was a special moment...


It was great to catch up with so many people and to meet new crafters....especially those who I met for the first time....
We all had a blast .....but back to housework....walking Tess and getting ready for the workshops on Wednesday....
Thanks for looking in today and here's a little bit of craftiness to leave you with......


Gelli plate and Clarity stamps....
Take care and see you soon....Jo. xxx

  2. Love your translation of NEC!
    Sooo wish I could have been there when Massimo met Barbara (even though he made me a slave, saying that I was Sam's slave too!). Don't tell my husband of my new title please.......
