The show was amazing. It was the first time I had attended a craft show at the NEC and to be honest, I probably wouldn't have gone if it weren't for winning the tickets and the great company (more on pricing later). There was a really good selection of stalls from paper crafting to fine art, fabrics and a small number of baking related goods. There were a wide range of free make and takes as well as paid workshops from Groovi parchment to water colouring, stamping, jewellery making and even encaustic art. Unfortunately we arrived a little late to sign up for the Groovi make and takes with master parcher Linda Williams, so we let Lou have the last slot as she had never tried it before. Jane is a DT member of the Groovi team at Claritystamp so she really knows what she is doing and I have done a bit too.
The three of us were on the front row ready for the Clarity Live show on HOCHANDA at 12pm. Lou was her usual self and I was busy biting the inside of my cheek so I wouldn't burst out laughing.
I was mistaken for a member of the Clarity team, Heather, by some people, so Jane took a photo of the two of us together just to prove there are two of us. I didn't notice Paul photobombing in the background.
