I survived :D

Still can't upload pictures for you but thought I'd let you know I've survived the first day and let me tell you it was an interesting one!
I was quite nervous in the car on the way in with Karen and her hubby who was dropping us off but by the time we arrived and I got my badge the nerves disappeared. Show opened at 9 and by 10:10 not one person had stopped! I was beginning to feel a failure (I give up easily huh lol) when finally someone ventured into my little stand and that was that :D I decided early on that I was just going to be myself and not try and act like a business person...think I'd get sussed pretty quick...and I think it worked. I met lots of really nice people...some placed orders, others didn't but seemed to like Nikki and Ruby and others said they'd be back today to place orders. Hopefully they will and it wasn't an excuse to get away!
Gaynor and Donald arrived with a smile, hug and a was great to see familiar faces.
Three lovely ladies came onto the stand and placed an order. They 3D their cards and said once they received their order they would make a card for me using Nikki or Ruby. They left but 1/2 an hour or so later appeared back...I thought they had changed their minds about their order (positive thinking Kerry!!!) but they had remembered they'd some samples they were dropping off to another exhibitor and wanted to show them to me. OMG...they were gorgeous (They did let me take pictures which I'll post when I get home) and I can't wait to see what they do with my images...I think there was a promise of one if not two samples!
I met a lot of really nice people...retailer's as well as exhibitors...and I hope today will be as good as yesterday.
Shower time, then show time. Sorry nothing to see but thanks for stopping by.
Catch ya later x

Hi Kerry, Glad to hear you had a good day yesterday. I was one of the customers who placed an order with you and I am soooo!!!! looking forward to receiving your stamps for my shop. I have already decided that one of each will definately want to come and live with me. I have been showing a few of customers in my shop today a couple of your cards in some mags I have and they have all seemed really interested in them. I will let you know when I managed to make some samples and will post them on my blog for you to have a look at.
Hope Mon & Tue go well for you.
