From Harrogate to the NEC

Hi All
Had a fantastic time at the Great Northern Paper Show last weekend and it was great to say hello and have a natter with everybody who came to our stall.
The show was a great success for us and we are really glad that you loved our demos and liked our prices.
Gordon had so many people wishing him well and nobody could believe the progress he has made in the last couple of months and we really do cherish your good wishes so much.
Well on Sunday i took part in the Ready Steady Craft Challenge and am so amazed that i actually won.
It was so much fun and honestly the maddest thing i have taken part in for a long time.
If anyone has any photos or movies they took of it i would love you to send them and then i can put some up on the blog for people who werent there to see.
I am writing this from our hotel room in Birmingham as tomorrow is the opening day of the Hobbycrafts and Stitch show at the N E C and we are really looking forward to meeting all our customers old and new.
Karen will be showing you new ideas with the Scor-pal, Scor Buddy and Scor Bug and i will be demoing some amazing dies that allow you to make big cards with your cuttlebug and big shot without having to upgrade to A4 machines and dies. I will also be showing you how you can make beautiful cards that are cut and embossed in 8 seconds using some new dies by Marianne and i think you will be very impressed.
Tomorrow night i am having a reunion with some fantastic friends that i lost contact with over ten years ago and cant wait to see them and share our stories and also talk about old times i am sure its going to be a hoot and this time i have made sure my camera battery is charged up.
If i dont get back to the hotel too late tomorrow i will put up some pics for you to see and tell you how the show and reunion went.
Going to get some sleep now so i am ready for tomorrow ( Gordon snoring already haha )
Love and smiles Rob and Gordon xxxxx and a big one for Harry X

Gordon On Create and Craft today and a pic of Harry Too.

Hi everyone.
I know i havnt posted for a while and i am so sorry.
You know how it is one thing leads to another and another and there just isnt enough time in the day.
It has been a very busy few weeks for us as we are ordering things for the big paper craft shows which are getting nearer every day, making samples for T V , the shows,and the shop with all the new products coming out
(all very exciting ) and getting all the classes at the shop sorted so they are ready to start again inApril.
Gordon has really improved dramatically over the last few weeks and today i was so proud of him watching him back to himself on Create and Craft and him and Karen did an excellent job and done us all proud.

We have been inundated with calls to the shop and e.mails saying how fab it was to see Gordon looking so well and back to normal.
Heres a picture of Harry to finish with and as you can see he has had a good hair cut.
I wanted to put this pic up because this is how he goes to sleep sometimes while watching the TV. He sort of stays in the position he is in and just nods off and it is so funny to see.
Yes he does like television especially anything with dogs and cats.
His favorite programme is In The Night Garden and he has watched it all the way through since he was a puppy, he even has an Iggle Piggle that sings and it is his favorite toy and is always near him at home.

I will close now and speak to you all again soon.
Thanks for dropping by.
Love and Smiles Rob Gordon and Harry xxx
