ICHF Birmingham NEC
I had an amazing day! I was so excited to be finally going and the atmosphere and inspiration all around was incredible.
I met some awesome people on the day and people who have been tremendous inspiration to me personally. It really was the most awe inspiring day. I met Madison from Echo Park. Love their papers and collections and he was lovely guy. I met the girls at Personal Expressions who were demonstrating art journaling with spray inks and stencils! They were fabulous. They even let me take a couple of pics and gave me the finished demo signed! Yay! I even saw Hayley West of Create & Craft fame in the ladies loos haha!
There were seminars and workshops, demonstrations and incredible sample displays to see! The Sizzix stand was amazing & they allowed pictures which are below. It really was like being in a crafty sweet shop.
The highlight of the day was bumping into Nikky Hall of Polkadoodles. She really has been a long time inspiration for me and I love her work. I almost chickened out talking to her but am very glad I didn't as she was totally lovely and we had a great (& very exciting!) chat ;)
It wasn't just a sightseeing expedition though as I did have a purpose and that was to see if I could add products to my shop that will compliment my digis. I think I've come up with some perfect additions so keep an eye out for those in the near future!
So it's exciting times ahead for T4T and I can't wait to share some of the new ideas & developments with you. Also look out for some new releases next week ready for Mothers Day & spring! :)
Have a great weekend!
