What a day!

Have you ever had a day that exceded your expections? Well, I had one of those days today! As you will know today was launch day for Nikki & Friends Stamps at Craftology and I arrived bright and early at 9:30 to set up. I wasn't sure what to expect but this is what met me at the door -

And that was only the beginning....look at this!!!

It was amazing to see all my stamps on their pegs for sale with Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Zest It arranged below them. My dream had come true : )
It was a slow start but before you know it I had a little crowd in front of me and it was show time LOL.

And here are all the samples together!

I wasn't worried about demonstrating as I have demo'd quite a few times before. What I was worried and nervous about was how Nikki was going to be received. But I can honestly say that people were so kind about her (no I didn't pay them!) and it was great to meet everyone. I met lots of new people (watch this space Andy for Nikki's male 'friend' lol) and some that I have met before. I got a huge surprise when a lovely lady I hadn't seen in years appeared in front of me. I knew Jean when our kids were in nursery (Nicole is 25 next month so that will tell you how long ago lol)... she recognized my name when she received her Craftology news letter. It was great to see you Jean!

Can anyone guess which Nikki was the best seller? How about a little competition? My first Blog Candy .... I've wanted to do this like forever lol...if you want to win a Nikki of your choice, post a comment and which Nikki you think was the best seller. I'll leave it open till this time next week and pick a winner. can't win if you're not in!

Before I go I'd like to say a big thank you to the official Ladybug Crafts Ink photographer, Elaine! You did a great job and I promise you don't have to do it every time I demo LOL. Thanks for the tea June and Elaine and to Gaynor and Donald for giving Nikki & Friends their launch. And especially all my friends and family that have helped and put up with me over the last 3/4 months while I made my dream a reality.

Catch ya later x
