Sorry it's so late tonight. We've been at the NEC Trade Show.
And boy did we get a surprise! We went to the British Craft Awards Ceremony 2015 this evening, because I had been asked to present some awards, which is a great honour.
And then Barbara Gray was called out for the Favourite Card Designer!
Didn't see that one coming!
Nor the next one, Best Rubber Stamp Range!
And when they called out Barbara Gray a third time, for most inspirational blog award, well I can tell you, I was shaking like a leaf.
With my two besties at my side, darling Dave
And marvellous Maria
It was an evening I for one shall never forget.
Thank you so much if you voted for Claritystamp or myself. I can quite honestly say when they called out Clarity for Best Rubber Stamp Range I was punching the air and squealing. Unashamedly chuffed for the Clarity Crew.
So not only did we have an excellent business meeting in the afternoon; we were given some serious pats on the back in the evening.
When I came off the stage from the Blog Award, one of the young magazine editors asked me what I thought about winning the award. My response went something like this:
"I love blogging! I do it every day! It's like writing a book, one day at a time and there's a brilliant community which has grown around it!" That's it, isn't it.
And I haven't forgotten that we must pick a winner for Dave's Witty Ditty Blog. I shall do that when we get home on Tuesday, if I may xxxx
It's a funny old life, isn't it. Never know what's round the corner. I certainly got caught out tonight!
Lots of love,
