Day One ...

Hi Everybody,

Well day one is well and truly over with and I am now back at the hotel ... pleasantly tired and weary.

What a day this has been with a very earl start.   I thought that there was only one 5.45 on a clock but today I found out how wrong I was.

This was the day I went for the screen test ... and that was the easy part.

But I am really happy with the way the day went.

This was the first show I did with Dean and he was very welcoming.

In fact everybody has been so friendly anf reassuring that I felt very much at home.

It was also nice to meet up with some of the people that I have watched for a few years doing there stuff on Create and Craft.

So now it is time to get some sleep because it starts all over again tomorrow

Not quite as hectic with three shows to do at 9, 4 and 7 pm but still a 7 am start.

Thank you for the emails that you sent in to the show and I hope you will join me again tomorrow

Several cards have been given away in the shows and if they are wonky I apologise .... it's my nerves.

This is one of the projects that I made for the show and this uses the Cherry Blossom flowers to decorate the top.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

I did email in but wasn't lucky enough to get my email read out, your husband even got a mention. Look forward to watching again tomorrow you are a star and you deserve your fame, and have shared all your knowledge with us.

  26. Hello Christina
    Thanks for explaining the flowers.
    I have tried several times, but they fall apart, are too chunky for putting on cards, or end up in the bin!
    Patience I think is the answer and you have that!
    Have a good day today
    Take care
    Love Marg

  34. You did wonderful again Christina, you looked much more relaxed on the first flower show with Dean. I think you already have the hang of it. I can imagine you had a good nights sleep, nerves can wear you out for sure. The best on Day 2.
