Well, a whole week has gone by and where has the time gone? I spent the start of it at the Stitches Trade show in Birmingham. This is a very interesting hobby and crafting exhibition for the trade only and an ideal opportunity to meet existing contacts and make new ones and to also see the launch of exciting new products. As always, it was extremely interesting and I look forward to using many new products in my projects soon.
Working with new product, which inspires makes crafting so much easier. There is nothing worse than working with a product that doesn't excite, but in this industry when a client wants a project created with a particular product, you have no choice. So to be told that crafting must be a fun job, is not always the case - at times it can be extremely frustrating and certainly is difficult on the days where creative block takes hold and a deadline is fast approaching.
Thankfully, I haven't had one of those days in a long while and I'm on a roll right now. In fact, I'm working on some more projects for clients right now and hope to have something on Creative Crafter UK on the theme of Mother's Day for you shortly. Please do keep checking back!
