Fun? Fair?

So rather than dwell on how dreadful the "show" (or rather no show) was on Sunday I'll at least show you photos and tell you about how lovely my show neighbours were.
Next door were Clare and Lee from Snug Baby. So nice and good at their job that I ended up in coming home with less money than I went out because I bought one of their rather marvellous slings.
The day itself was dreadful and was only saved by the people I met. The other exhibitors were all great and the show could have been so good if only people came, I think if they knew about it they would have..... "if you build it" and all.....

I made so many pieces especially for the event but at the last minute this was an addition - return of the cupcake tree but in baby blanket form. It will show at We Make Christmas and I really hope that it gets a good home their.


  1. When Claire and Lee were my neighbours at an event, I also left with less money after a snugbaby purchase! Hehe.

    Sorry the show didn't go as well as hoped, but your stand looks gorgeous!!!

  2. Aww, how lovely. It was great to meet you to, although I am still very envious of your magazine cover!
    Hope you and Toby enjoy your SnugBaby, and your husband wasn't too cross!

  3. Glad to hear (via @Claire_SnugBaby) that you liked the sling. Don't be disheartened by yesterday - you have some lovely products - there just wasn't the audience there to appreciate them!

  4. amanda - how do they do it? I think its something in the chocolates......!!!
    claire, no - he was fine and thought it was a great idea, its the other mums that will think I'm mad for yet ANOTHER sling! but seriously its the only one that I could use with him now.... well done (thank you mr snug - you were the only person who ate my foxes mints!!) xx

  5. I love what you have made, really pretty!

  9. oh hum - I'm so sorry. been there, done that - be heartened by the lovely complimentary comments above.

  10. Wasn't it just the worst show ever?!
    Did you know that I left early?
    I was almost willing one of the organisers to come and tell me I couldn't, just so I could have a show-down with them, but I guess they were all in hiding at that point!
    Awful. Awful. Awful!
    So awful in fact, I've taken the executive decision that jb*jb does not do any more shows ... ever! Even if they advertise it in 3-mile letters on the moon ... never again!
