Good morning everyone!
I am sorry that it has taken me a few days to find time to update my blog, but my feet have hardly touched the ground over the last week or so!
And what a week it has been!!!
I made my debut on Ideal World's Create & Craft Channel last Wednesday, when I partnered the lovely Dawn Wheeler throughout the day, promoting the fabulous Kanban Cool Brittania range.
I was the one doing the demos as Dawn talked about the products, which proved to be a VERY big hit with viewers.
On Thursday morning, I again partnered Dawn, before she took sail on the Create & Craft Cruise!
More slots followed on Thursday and I was allowed to go solo, which was great fun with both Nigel later that afternoon and Leonie in the evening.
I was delighted to hear that the 4 day deal sold out during my final show.The add on kit, the butterflies, the specialty card pack plus lots more had also sold out beforehand. So all in all, a fantastic time.

I would also like to thank so many people, whom I have never heard from before, who sent me e-mails and messages of support and comments about how much they had enjoyed my demos etc.
It does appear that so many people would love to see instructions put on my blog after seeing the show, so I am hoping to find the time to do this very soon, plus upload photos of some of the samples that I made too.

I am not sure when I will next be back on Create & Craft, but hopefully it won't be too long, as I can't wait to repeat the experience. I was made to feel so very welcome by all of the staff, producers, directors and presenters alike.
Thank you Kanban for giving me the opportunity :)

I think it's safe you will be asked back - and soon, Kathryn. I really enjoyed your demos and I'm not a 'kit' kind of crafter.

Thank you so much everyone. Your comments are so uplifting.
Demo time on air is limited, but I like to try and share something that is not always the obvious. I hope it continues to come across well in the future. I will certainly keep trying!

I think you did a brilliant job! Your cards were fantastic and I would love to see them on here please! Especially the instructions for the scalloped circle sliding card, as I missed the first part with the dimensions etc!!
Hope you will be back on C&C soon because you were great!

Aww, thanks so much Debs!
Funnily enough, the pop up slider card was going to be my first tutorial on here, so I will make sure that it definitely is!
It is actually really easy to do and will lend itself to any occasion by using different card stock and toppers etc etc.
Watch this space!!
