News from the show

Hello girls, sorry I am not about much, no Internet connection and will not be back in the office until Tuesday as I am in GLASGOW. It was a beautiful drive down the center of Scotland on Wednesday, blue skies and sunshine and no rain anywhere. Set up the stand on Wednesday night with the help of DD Debbie and spent the rest of the night running around Glasgow searching the DIY shops for giant hooks as the stand was still in bits.
Thursday arrived and I had the lovely Ali help me out, a huge thank you to all the sugar addicts who stopped to say hello and I will need to show you an extra special gift we received, people are so kind and I think that the Sugar Nellie community is second to none, such a great mix of crafters who all share one addiction.
Friday was quieter and tomorrow I get to work with Gayle :) she's bringing cake as the food in the SECC is dire and totally overpriced. I can easy live off cake for a few days, especially if it has fresh cream.

take care and I will catch up with photos as soon as I can

Just don't eat too much cake & cream or you'll be sick. All the best over the weekend & dismantling as well.
Have a safe journey home too.

I was there on Thursday and i totally agree that the Sugar Nellie stand had a lovely community feel. That really stood out! I got myself some new stamps including a few of the new Mangas, loved Mirror, Mirror! Going ink her up tonight!
It was great to see Sugar Nellie at the show this year..lots of people were talking about it as i worked my way around the stalls!
I also got caught out with the terrible food at a shocking price ...enjoy your cake, you deserve it after all your hard work!!
Hugs,

It was lovely to meet you for the first time Karen and Ali and of course sweet Debbie. We had a lovely day and I must say the highlight was seeing all those lovely Sassy stamps along with some old favs and the new ones too. I agree, the food was yukky and the prices were ever yukkier, is that a word!!! Enjoy your cake.

Hiya Karen,

How ARE YOU?

You will be worn out with the SHOW in Glasgow eh?
Was great to catch up with you again.
- you are like the "Scottish Pimernel" ha ha - I seek you here-I seek you there!

Found you though- very tiring but will you be doing it again - you seem to enjoy it- and everyone enjoyed catching you (FAST RUNNER).

There is a Craft show in Edinburgh, April 30th- will you be going to that one?

Oh did Gayle bring cake? What she bring you?

Been stamping & colouring my Simply Sassy girls - time to bring them out to play on the challenges, me thinks!

Made my day catching up with you, as you are so friendly,not all stalls are friendly but the ones I visited were- friendly is better than professional any day!

Hoping that you had a good return on the amount of work that you had to put into the show - I know it can be expensive to exhibit.

We wll love you for it awww hug hug.

Thank you

Take care
Big Hugs
