First day is always a mix of desperation, inspiration and perspiration...........and this year was no exception.
First stand inside the door and OMG..........that took a good half hour to peruse..............
Graphic 45 is always the most amazing stand, they must spend hours and hours on the artwork for it. One of the new ranges this year is Olde Curiostiy Shop and it is def one of my favourites too.
How amazing is this.................simple but just lovely
This little chap was on the Canvas Corp stand, they sell mostly canvas (duh!) and burlap in all sorts of manifestations.
they have used the two products to cut flowers and decorate this cushion, I really wanted to take this home with me.
Heard of Christy Tomlinson? she is a new designer for Pink Paislee, and this is her canvas. It does not show the dimension in this photo but she uses a range of modelling paste, paint, papers and cut outs to achieve this look. Really dimensional, and such a nice lady too.
Banners are huge right now and this stand was outstanding, very eyecatching. I would love to know where they get all the fabrics from. The tables you can see here are old doors with legs on and a very eclectic mix of seating too!
Oh looky who I found, Dyan was on the Ranger stand, looking fabulous and demoing her new signature line which we will be stocking..........the other lady is Kristen, we met up at the show and and oohhed and ahhhed our way around pretty much the whole day........seems we both suffer from ADOS syndrome......"attention deficit..........ohhhhh shiney" LOL we tried to go in straight lines, honest we did!
I have lots of pictures of the Ranger challange for this year but they have to be turned yet and its late here so I am off to bed and will get them done for you for tomorrow.
