My visit to the Alexandra Palace Craft Show

I met lovely Jenny from Hobbyart

Unfortunately it was pouring with rain yesterday and was very misty, so Alexandra Palace did not have its usual magnificent views over London. It it was wonderful to meet so many lovely people. I took lots of photos to share.

A collection of beautiful cards by the talented Hobbyart Design Team.

The talented Barbara Gray giving a lovely little demo.

Some lovely cards by Inkylicous, I am sure I spotted my friend Sandra’s stunning work there.

Some gorgeous Alice in Wonderland makes from Dolly Dimples.

I was really looking forward to the Anna Marie stall, but sadly they had sold out of a lot of things the day before.

My goodies - a stamp by Hobbyart, and one from Clarity, a stencil too all with nature themes. A beautiful unique fairy stamp from Inkylicius. I also found some Distress Oxides at a good price! I found Tim Holtz Resist Spray, which I have had my eye on for a while.

 Last but not least I treated myself to a gorgeous die of children holding hands, and one of them holding a teddy bear ahhh.I used to work in a playgroup for under fives years ago before the coma and before I became very ill and disabled.

I am looking forward to playing with my goodies. Sad Indigoblu were not there, but they are very busy with their popular Dirty Weekend workshops. I will be receiving their new stamps to work with soon.Lots of crafting ahead.

Thank you for visiting, wishing you a happy crafty week xx


  1. Hello Jannet, well it looks like you had a fabulous day out, brilliant photos and lovely new crafty stash. Will look forward to seeing your new creations.
    You are so lucky to have these craft shows to go to, up here there is nothing in Inverness, and now the Glasgow one is quite poor as many of the companies find it not worth the expense to come up, so please you were able to go to yours, kate x

  2. What a gorgeous photo of you and Jenny, it's looks like you had a wonderful day and the pile of goodies you bought are yummy! I am looking forward to seeing what you create with them. It's cool you found the die which brings back such lovely memories of when you worked with children. xxx

  3. What a great day you had Jannet and Jenny is so lovely. The last couple of shows I have been at she has been surrounded by people watching her demo's. Great choice of Hobby Art Stamps, I used those last year for my family Christmas cards.
    Have fun with your new crafty toys and I look forward to seeing your IndigoBlu creations very soon.
    Creative wishes Tracey x
