Although I had visited the studios at Ideal World some months back it was my first live show with them and what an enjoyable experience it was. I was excited to be on air with Lottie as she has a background in musical theatre and that is aways a great thing in my book. But everybody there was so pleasant and helpful it was almost unreal. Over 100 emails came through during the show welcoming me to the channel and that blew me away. I came away buzzing.
And as if that wasn't enough I spent the whole two and a half hour journey home reading texts, emails, Facebook, twitter and blog messages that so many of you (over 180!!!!) sent. And that doesn't include any comments on the forums. I did start to reply individually but it became impossible especially as I have still been receiving them today. Thank you seems inadequate for the way it made me feel but I do mean that sincerely. You all said such nice things and if it hadn't been for my dad giving me some negative feedback(!!!!) my head might have been too big to fit through the front door. So thank you, thank you, thank you. I was so overwhelmed. I love my job and know I am the most fortunate person to have what was my hobby as my daily work!
I tried to show as many samples as possible but there were a few I didn't manage to show and I thought you might like to see some of them.
A twisted easel card using Bazoo papers.
These owls are from the stamp kit. All the stamps were adorable. The papers were from the Spring Drop paper pad.
A card using papers from my favourite pad to air - Spring Feast 6" x 6".
8"x 8"layout using a stencil and then papers from Love Letters 6"x 6" pad. The same paper pad was used for the butterfly card below.
Today I thought I better tidy the house as my priorities were elsewhere all last week. I even went out and bought steak for tea to ease my guilty conscience for neglecting everyone. Even the dogs were getting pretty fed up with it all.
I am off now for a glass of wine and another early night. I don't want to gush any more but thank you again for all your support.
Love and hugs
