With thanks to Janet and Samina from Juko Designs for this 'beautiful' (said obviously with sarcasm...) photo of me and my stand at BCTF 2012. This was the sixth year I had exhibited at this trade fair, and had another good show... I once again won the WOW factor award (third time!!!) - this award is voted for by my fellow exhibitors, so is especially special! Thanks you guys (and girls!) I also was highly commended in the gift focus award for best new gift product. Plus, got lots of orders and met many new galleries. Yay!!
As well as all this, BCTF is also a great chance to see lots of fabulous work by amazing makers.... here are a few highlights- Jessica Hogarth's lovely illustrative prints and products, squirrel themed (yes!) Phoebe Jewellery and I may have (definitely did...) bought a ring, with a giraffe on it, from Charlotte Lowe :o) All round, it was a thoroughly brilliant few days!
