a work based Jolly!

the freebie post is here



***********************************************************


I am off on a business trip. I normally think business trips sound like a boring chore but this one is going to be so much fun & I'm so excited!!


I shall be found shopping & researching at Stitches, a craft Trade Fair in Birmingham ... John is coming too & we've managed to find a swanky looking hotel at non-swanky prices. I've been to trade fairs before as a seller (in my past life as an employee) but never as a buyer, plus it'll be nice to finally meet the suppliers I already use but have only ever spoken to on the phone.
I've done all my last minute preparations: gathering business cards, e-tickets, hotel booking reference, supplier stand info, camera (for sneaking photos for the blog!)...and, more importantly, I have a nice new brooch to wear!If you are going too and see someone wearing this it'll be me, so stop and say hi!


OOOHHHH and the whole point of the post was to say that I won't be posting orders on Monday but it'll be business as usual on Tuesday, all the shops will remain open for shopping as usual.
