Visit to Hobbycrafts at the NEC

Well what a day - a visit to Hobbycrafts exhibition at the NEC Birmingham. We left at 7.15 this morning (after a night of little sleep - think it was the thought of being up early). At about 9.30, (while rummaging through a box of ribbons) I had 2 text messages - the baby boom continues! Margaret's daughter had a little girl at 7.30 this morning and Sharon's 'daughter in law' (almost) had a little girl at 8.35 this morning. All concerned are doing well.

Anyway, back to the show. I stand by my comments of last year - I still felt this show was very much aimed at card makers. Don't get me wrong, it was a very enjoyable day and I managed to fill a ruck-sack and have 2 further bags, to weigh me down. But there was a real lack of scrapbooking stash. I did manage to buy some lovely 7 gypsies mini chipboard books, some great storage boxes (there were some fab storage ideas about), a few papers and I treat myself to a lovely pink thingy to use with heat seal crystals. (like a kandykane type thing!)

Did anyone go to the exhibition at Olympia, London this year, if so what was the 'stash' shopping like there??? We are considering that one next year??
