Craft Fair in Melbourne

Hi, Thanks for popping in!
I was at the Melbourne Craft Fair yesterday.  WOW-sooo many like minded people to see and chat with.
I demonstrated techniques using Chroma Products on the BFDA stand.  I don't think I've ever spoken non-stop for that long about something I'm so passionate about!
Here's a picture of Rachel and I demonstrating in front of the BFDA stand.
Rachel conducted the Make and Take workshop in Craft Circle, while I continued to demonstrate and she came back with this lovely gift tag for me! 
Thanks Rachel.
After a quick break I did the run around from stall to stall.  I say run around because I normally spend all day at the Craft shows and go back and purchase what I really need after checking out all the stalls.  Hm, yesterday, I only had a couple of hours and it was dangerous!  No running back to get anything, not enough time {I just had to buy it then and there}.
Here's a picture of my goodies I purchased yesterday.  A quick stop by Giggle Buttons and met Kez & Elisa.  I also found a few art supply stalls. 
One lovely helpful lady was Ange at http://www.scrapware.com.au/ I also stopped and introduced myself to Pam from Cottage Garden threads.  Oh yummy, I could stitch almost anything using these threads and of course some pretty lace was purchased from Lace Cottage for sewing and in my art journals.  Oops, Being on the run, I forget to take pictures. Not very good blogging.
Happy Painting,
Hugs,
Anna
