Thanks for popping in.
Wow. What a day! From singing She Loves you yeah yeah yeah, tales of feeding a sheep farmer Romano peppers stuffed with pine nuts, capers and parmesan cheese, and creating havoc whilst skiing in the alps in the SHAC Shac at 10am, to setting up a virtual mini stand at the NEC and pretending we were all hanging out there together at 3pm!
Isn’t it amazing what you can do when you have to? Can’t get to an exhibition? Got to stay safe and at home? Well, let us bring the show and the demo to you!! Hahahaha. Lots of perks for sure! Comfy seating, clear viewing, refreshments, free entry AND free parking!!! Sounds pretty deluxe to me! That would be a pretty epic exhibition, wouldn’t it?!?!?
I do hope you enjoyed our new show, The Moment of Clarity at 3pm. I just put my old demo hat on, the one I have worn at shows for over 30 years, stood standing, and launched myself into the stamps and masks! And didn’t the time fly!!
Fastest set up and break down ever. An hour to set up, and the same to dismantle. Now I know it was only a baby stand, to make believe, but nonetheless, I haven’t handled any grid wall since last March at the SECC in Glasgow!! The reality of an NEC Birmingham set up was usually 9-12 hours the day before, and at least 8 of us working flat out to get it done. Then, after 4 days of 9 hours daily demonstrating and selling, it was all broken down, back in the truck, then home James – And don’t spare the horses!!
Here we see Paul and I, well seasoned on the show circuit, strapping together the grid wall. I wish I’d invented grid wall. And tie-straps. An exhibition is held together with tie-straps!
Many, many thanks to two of my closest friends: Paul Church for steering the show and helping our visitors on the stand, and to dear Dee Paramour for her lovely art samples and support; she always makes our products sing beautifully. Much appreciated.
So there we have it. Many, many thanks to you for watching and supporting and buying our products if you did. If you missed the gig, no worries. You can always watch it on Youtube later if you like, where we have uploaded it, or just click the link here.
The great introductory prices on the Stamps and Mask set which were showcased today will stay true until next Friday.
Date for your diary: Next Moment of Clarity is on Friday 19th February at 3pm again. We’ve got something new and fab, which we are already working on!
But one exhibition, one Moment of Clarity, is just right, if we are to travel gently through this year, don’t you think?
Stay safe, have a great weekend.
Love and Hugs
