Thanks for popping in.
Just got home about an hour ago, had a little catch up with Dave, and then thought I’d come upstairs to chat to you.
Tell you what, I was thinking about you on the drive home.
How amazing that so many of you were watching at 7 am!
I asked you to join me, so I wasn’t flying solo,
but I honestly didn’t expect so many of you to actually show up!
And then to storm buy too! Nobody could believe it!
Michelle, my friend and buyer at HOCHANDA was even up at 7 watching. Just as well really, because she was hopping around within 10 minutes, on the phone to Dave (also up and cheering),
to increase stock levels quickly and across the board!
But you cannot imagine how chuffed I was. The sales were very very impressive. But even more gratifying was that they, to me, were a reflection of your loyal support.
So thank you.
We knew you would like the new papers and parchment,
We knew you would love Linda Williams’ exquisite
Dream and Wedding plates,
We knew you would love
the Carpe Diem Girl and Butterflies stampset.
But what we hadn’t banked on was how EARLY you would turn up to the birthday party!! I know we all like a freebie, and the papers with stencil were a good offer, but would they have got me out of bed on a Saturday at 7? Poor old Dave has to go to work tomorrow, to make a start on the stencils we added to the shows, to keep the giveaways going through all the live hours!
The first demo was a very simple one, looking for landscapes in the papers (and the parchment of course).
So often I get asked how do I see these things in paper?
Well, I don’t. I put them there…
