When I arrived I decided that the best strategy was to have a walk around first and just try and take everything in, and then have my lunch before shopping some more. The good thing about this show is the grid-like layout and with plenty of space between stalls - unlike the Stitch and Creative Craft Shows I have been to in the past. It is easy to navigate and there is also a vast amount of chairs and tables to sit and contemplate your spending or to eat a sandwich.
I also love to see the new products and gain inspiration for ideas as I do love to stamp and wish I did more of it. One of the best things is being able to take photographs of the card samples when you buy products at stands.
This time around I purchased a multitude of supplies from "Every Craft's a Pound", brushes and stamps from Inkylicious, Stamps from Stamposaurus and other bits and pieces during the day. Now all I need is to get crafting!
