QVC Germany – here we come!

QVC Germany – here we come!

Hi there!

Or should I say, Hallo meine lieben Bastelfreunde!

Well, here we are in Düsseldorf, the sun is shining on the Rhine, and we are just about to head into town to find the little food market we stumbled across yesterday.

It’s Dave’s Birthday today, so I am trying to park the panic, which always creeps in prior to a TV show. Honestly. You’d think after all these years that the nerves would subside, but no. And Germany is a whole other ball of wax, I can tell you! Just one hour today at 8pm, and on QVC 2. the Second channel. Ah well. What’s my mantra? This too shall pass.

Here are the products I am showcasing over here, plus some beautiful samples….

That should keep us hopping for an hour! Fingers crossed it all sells out quickly!

Time to go and focus on the day ahead. There are 11 hours between now and then,  and I would like to enjoy them, not panic about what will be over in the blink of an eye.

Love & hugs,

    Happy Birthday to Dave, hope you have a great day together celebrating.
    Looked at what you are show casing today, it seems an awful lot to get through if the samples are anything to go by but I am sure you will be terrific as usual.
    If you get nervous it means you care, but really Barbara, it rarely shows on TV but when it does and you get the giggles it makes us all smile.

  13. Happy Birthday Dave ! Have a lovely day and a great show – I don’t know why you worry ! LOL ! I love the parchlet plates, they’re my go to for a simple card but they can be made into so much more looking at the samples and I will try one day. What a great idea by Dee – with iris folding with the stencils – I’d not thought about using them that way, however would I be able to devise the pattern? All the samples look great – well done team as usual! X

  14. Happy birthday Dave, have fun in Germany.
    Good luck with the shows, think they will go well as the samples are beautiful. XX

  16. Well done, Barbara – great show on QVC Deutschland and so much packed into it. Groovi, stamping, dies – no wonder all the sell outs! I’m sure you will enjoy a lovely birthday meal with your dear husband now – Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag! Sehr herzlich, Jutta

  17. Wow! you’re certainly going to pack the hour, with so many wonderful products! And it’s definitely a case of, if one type of crafting doesn’t take your fancy just wait a minute ‘cos we’ve a whole raft of other options to show you! Highlighting the wide-ranging versatility of Clarity.
    I have to say, when I got to Dee’s bauble sample with the snow scene, I found myself scrolling up and down to look at the stamps and then the scene, then the stamps again – where have the father and child got their hats and scarf from?!! Very clever!
    Hope you’ve had a wonderful day and a great evening

  18. Hi Barbara
    Happy Birthday to your Dave. I’m sure you will both have a lovely day, and it sounds like you are in the right place for the weather, it’s horrid here!! Cold and wet!!
    My word you do have a lot to get through in an hour, but we all know you are superhuman and I’m sure everything will be a sell out as always.
    Love & Hugs

  20. Hello Barb, and a belated Happy Birthday to Dave. Hope you had a good day together, and that the show went well. Knowing how you work, I would say it did. The samples are beautiful, who could fail to be inspired and buy some of the goodies to try replicate that arty goodness. Safe travels back home. Take care all. Bx

  21. Happy birthday Dave! Hope the shows went well and the nerves stayed under control? Wonderful samples as always x

  22. Hallo Barbara,
    Ihre Show gestern bei QVC2 war brillant. Ihre Art der Präsentationen waren begeisternd und die Produkte – wie immer – fantastisch. Barbara, Ihre Ausstrahlung wirkt sehr positiv und Ihr Deutsch klingt prickelnd. Das einzige “Haar in der Suppe”
    die Shows sind viel zu kurz und die Abstände der Besuche zu lang. Videos in “Deutsch” wären super. Weiter so……. Freue mich schon auf Januar 2019.
    Gruß aus Germany
    Charlotte W.
