Although this past month has taught me that all plans can suddenly change at the last minute. A combination of transport problems and ill family member two weeks before LFCC caused some very fast change of plans, plus a few sleepless nights trying to re-arrange everything I’d put into place months before. I do dedicate a lot of time and energy before these events to ensure I have everything I need as well as a good choice of some of my best glass for people to choose – but then I also expect last minute things to go wrong, and as much as I make contingency plans forgetting to pack things like enough business cards does still happen!
Recent events behind the scenes means that I am going to have to radically change a few things over the next few months, and regrettably November’s Birmingham MCM at NEC is going to have to be one of the events I am not going to be able to attend. It’s really a shame, as it is such a relaxed event, we meet such great people there, and as a bonus
has some of the best curry houses we get to
visit too! At the moment we may also have to miss the March 2017 one too, but I’m
hoping things get resolved before then so we can make our return then. Also I
am only able to get to Birmingham Covent
Garden one day a week
at the moment, on Tuesdays, and I am also hoping in the next few months that I
will be able to get there for more days too. I do also hope to also increase
the amount of glass in my Etsy shop too, which not prepping for Birmingham will
allow me more time to concentrate on too.
One show that definitely we will be at is
’s MCM Expo at Excel on 28-30th October.
Not only will we be back with as much as I can carry but we will be in exactly
the same spot at May, with a ‘booth’ style stall too which makes it much easier
to layout and display the glass for you to see. I’m already making new aliens
for it, I’ll be extending the range of coloured inks for dip pens too which
previewed at LFCC, including three new metallic colours. There will also be
pendants, marbles, more rings and earrings, and if we have room some more boxes
and ‘B-Movie’ cushions too. I do hope to see you there, so long as nothing else
happens in the meantime! London
All the best
