Back to normal

I will be honest as I always try to be. When it comes to the life of a completely freelance craft demonstrator standards regarding hospitality are neither high nor low. Usually we demonstrators are very well treated and we are always looked after in terms of drinks and lunch breaks. Thing is that after five years of being a freelance demonstrator I have never been better looked after than at SirStampalot by Janice and Andy last Saturday. Equally good yes, once or twice, but never better. All the ladies who came to the demo were truly lovely, very kind.

When I got there, I was really impressed that they had a wall with all my stamps on the wall with little labels on the top with the information about punches sizes and coordinating stamp sets. Bellow the stamps, there were displayed all the coordinating punches. I mean, wow! It is very easy to be a good demonstrator when a shop makes so much effort for you and the products you are using.

Besides, it is one of the few shops that stock everything I like to use. Sizzix dies, check. EkSuccess punches, check. Martha Stewart punches, check. Nestabilities, check. Glue Gel, check. Hero Arts stamps, check. Fine tip PVA bottle, check. Versafine and memento pads, check. Trust me, at the end of the day I was thinking to myself there is no way that they have all my essentials, there must be something they don't stock. But thing is, Janice and Andy do stock all the products that I like to use.

It was my last demonstration for the year, and it was such a lovely day that has given me a new lease of creativity and feel really inspired.

By the way, I got in the post today the latest issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft. And voila, my two Christmas cards are on the cover. It is always a thrill when it happens. 

After almost two weeks, yesterday I felt 98% human again. That flu! It really was bad. Now, I am still coughing and sneezing but not as bad as last week.

I saw these cards when my mag came!
Glad you're feeling a bit better; and that you had a good last demo of the year :)
