Well, I can't even begin to tell you how crazy this past week ended up. Almost all deliveries arrived a day later than expected, so long story short, van for Harrogate not packed until the wee hours of build up day (Fri) So we had to drive through the night, through the worst rain ever with dodgy van windscreen wipers for the whole trip. Bit yuk.
Was so tired when we left the stand tonight I forgot to take any photos, but check out my twitter feed in the morning to see pics ( @paperartsy )
But, hey ho, just had the most amazing veal with mushroom sauce in my life ever at Gianni's /Brios in Harrogate, a fab Italian place. It was so tender was simply incredible, so hope that tops up the energy status for tomorrow, as its pretty low right now. Blurry eyes. Sorry if veal is not your thing, I know in UK it is one of those taboo meats, but I've not experienced that attitude in other countries, so I enjoy it without a negative historical viewpoint.
Anyways, we are so totally looking forward to the show tomorrow. I have not been oop north at this show for I don't know, maybe 6-7 years. We are right at the far end of the hall - furtherest end of hall from the loos - we back onto the cuppa tea and chat zone. And next to us is decopatch and the MDF man. Between us and them its substrate city!
We have treasure gold, portfolios oil pastels, paint in bulk buy packs at a good price. Mark has bargain buckets of all kinds of constantly changing goodies at the till to feast on, and of course MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL THINGS NEW ....we are launching Jo Firth-Young's new Xmas stamp collection!!!!
So come down to our stand and say hi!! We are at the Harrogate event centre, Harrogate, Yorkshire.
It's going to be fab!
