Hello there at last I am able to sit down for 2 minutes and share with you some pictures from the show. I have a video as well but my volume button on my laptop has stuck on mute and I cannot edit it,. We talked with so many lovely crafters this last weekend and made new friends which is lovely. Our stand grabbed a lot of attention once again and it was nice to have people come back for more than one look, this always makes us smile. here s some pictures I am hoping hubby will be able to un stick my volume button and I will be able to show the video tour as you will see the lovely items on display better.
We had tons of cards and 3 d items on display most of them made by my fab team and fellow demonstrators.
this was the other end of the stand and you can just about see the table for our make n take's, where the  big shot is.
One of the displays I love making for the show is the HALLOWEEN one and this year I had a go at making a display I saw on Kimberly's blog but saw it to late to make it for last year's show. It turned out so sweet and it got quite a bit of attention. I am also happy as I have it ready now to adorn my home now that the show is over.
Here's a few close pictures, of course it would have been better if you saw the whole display but hopefully you will get the idea. 
They are very much inspired by the talented fellow demo Kimberly Van Diepen and she has a fabulous video tutorial on her blog showing you how to make these lovelies HERE.
To decorate the cones I used a mixute of stamp sets, Tiny tags, Natures Walk, Aristic Etchings.
I will leave you with a few pictures of the fabulous girlies in my team that helped man the show Jo and Paula. They were fab and had a lot of fun, we all did. 
and one of all of us together all blurry lol.
Well this is all I have for you today there are loads of things gone of the retiring list so if you need anything make sure you place your order ASAP. 
 I can't leave and not tell you about my latest food inspired bit. We had pizza the other night 
But not just any pizza, this was my first ever hand made pizza made of course in the Thermomix entirely, from the dough to the fresh tomato sauce, it was incredibly delicious and so much better than any bought pizza.
Right see you all very soon but before I go I have a HUGE favour to ask, my dear friend Sally has entered a competition to win a Filofax and needs a few more votes to win, if you have 2 seconds would you please vote for her? She would be very grateful I can tell you and so will I. You can cast your vote by clicking the dot next to Sally H picture HERE.
Thank you so much,  big hugs M xxx

  1. Lovely to see your stand at Harrogate, and all the samples were absolutely fabulous. We especially loved the halloween and xmas decorations, beautiful!

  2. The stand was fantastic - looking forward to the video.
    Your pizza looks very yummy - my daughter did them a week ago but I can't have the flour so until I get a gluten free recipe I can't make them. I have made carbonara and risotto and cake and lots of lemon/lime butter. Oh yes, my Son in law tells me it is perfect for boiled eggs - don't laugh - he says 12 minutes for his Daughter's and 14 minutes for everyone else and they turn out perfect every time. lol expensive egg boiler!
    What was in the cleaning mixture you made ??

  3. I love to see your displays! So beautiful! Can you tell me how you made the beautiful wreath that is on the top of the wooden shelf on the left of your display photo?
