Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. We're not quantified; there's no chart of desire. When the roaring flames of your heart have burned down to embers, may you find that you have married your best friend. [Steven Tyler]

Back On The Road Again

Early in September, Darren, Emma and I hit the road to Wrexham for the 'Artstamp Wales' show. It was the first time we'd attended this show and didn't know what to expect.

The journey was uneventful and set-up went well. You can see how nice the stand looked with Darren, Emma and some of the other exhibitors in the photo.

Our hotel was lovely, in a wooded setting and we were made to feel very welcome.

Saturday 09th: no where near as busy as most of the other shows that we attend. Lots of people stopped by to watch the demonstrations and were very enthustiastic about our products. I was demonstrating Elusive Images new Christmas Stamps in conjunction with alcohol ink backgrounds - Wow! I love the Poinsettia Script. I think I've decided on the design for my own Christmas Cards this year!!

Sunday 10th: does anyone know we're here? It was so quiet today. The weather was absolutely beautiful which probably didn't help. If people were out and about they certainly weren't at the Stamp Show in any great numbers. The picture below right was taken early afternoon when usually you have to fight your way to the stands - I wish!!

The journey home was slow going..... lots of traffic, lots of hold-ups and even a vehicle on fire which really held us up. But at least the weather was still good.

We'll notch Wrexham up to experience and look forward to the next one at Harrogate at the end of the month. I'll be back with another update soon.
