NEC 2012

Well what a busy day yesterday was!

We left home at about 9am eventually and arrived at the NEC just after 10:30. We soon realised just how busy it was going to be and changes our initial plan of starting on the left as everyone else did and instead headed over to the far right hand corner where all the workshops and demonstrations were! This was the side where all the art materials were so we had a quick look and then found the decopatch make and take stand so mum and I joined the queue and had a go at decorating a heart each - great fun and I kept finding glue varnish on my hands all afternoon... Brought back memories of primary school and peeling PVA glue off hands after arty activities!!

After that we braved the crowds and started our purchases! There were some bargains to be had and we picked up a few of them! I got lots if things that were on my wish list... And a few that weren't and discovered some new retailers to buy from in the future!

I got quite a good assortment of goodies (as you can see from the photo!) and still came home with some money in my purse so may have to pop over to Lili of the Valley (who are offering show offers until tonight on their website as they didn't go to the show!) for a last little spend!!

You got a good haul anyway! So many lovely things - can't wait to see what you come up with!

And very clever to go to the opposite side of the hall! By the time I got through the first few stands I was knackered!!
