Well I think it is time for a little bit of a catch-up now the Spring Exhibition season has ended. I am not out now until July when I am at Doncaster Racecourse on 14th & 15th with Stephanie Weightman (ex Create & Craft and now QVC).
As usual it has been a very busy run of shows, which on the whole have proved to be successful. Looking back there are always a couple of highlights and things that are remembered well. It is always nice to see other people's work and one highlight was when Jacqui Mansfield brought her work to Maldon in Essex (there are photos earlier in this blog).
The exterior of the Titanic Exhbition Building (I'll try again next year to get there)
Last of the season was Brighton. I had hoped for some nice weather for Brighton - particularly with the show changing dates from February to May. However, Tues - Thurs it was more like February! On the Friday it was a nice day and of course when we had to leave on Saturday it was lovely and Brighton seafront was packed. When it came to Brighton I really did not fancy an early morning start so I cheated and left a day earlier. This turned out to be a bonus though as I was able to unload the van on the Tuesday so on Weds all I had to do was set the start up and finish earlier! At the back of my head I had already the thought of going to Brighton Pavilion. I remembered going many years ago with my Parents when I was little - needless to say I could not remember much at all about it. I was really glad to make the effort to go and think it was the best £10 I have spent in a long while. So stunning inside. It is a shame interior photos are not allowed but I can understand why, so I only have exterior shots.
Now that I think brings my travels up to date!
Now to return to Friendly Plastic. I have some photos to do of new items which I will post in due course.
