A PLACE WHERE CHAOS OFTEN PREVAILS!

I'm rather disgusted....


I would say GOOD morning all but to be honest with you it's not that good a morning here in my old craft room... you may have read on Kath's blog yesterday all about our little birdie sell out, not one but two days in a row... it was by far the most popular piece of equipment on the stand.
Now all the equipment that was used at the SECC last weekend was my own personal demonstration kit so I am sure you can image how disgusted I was this morning when I was emptying all my bags to store my kit away for the next time it will be used... only to discover... wait for it.... someone has actually had the audacity to steal my squeeze punch!!!!! Oh yes, my little birdie squeeze punch has gone walk about in some thiefs bag.
It is random acts of selfishness such as this that turn the show from being a big happy event where we all share tips and ideas into a not so nice situation where we have to face the reality of the kind of society we live in today.... one which contains thieves and liars. Like everyone else out there I have to work hard for a living and would personally never dream of taking something which was not my own, and all I ask is that I am shown the same respect as I show to others.
So on that note I will bid you farewell for the moment and one final piece of advice... if you are visiting any craft shows over the coming months... beware.... nothing is safe.

Oh, what a horrible thing to happen. We tend to think that all crafters are nice people but obviously not - I heard that one of the demonstrators had her sample cards stolen too. It's just not nice. Lorraine, I can only I hope the vent has done you some good even though it won't get your punch back. Kind regards, Elizabeth x

This has happened to me, too, Lorraine. Also, people who take your carefully-prepared samples, that also gets me furious. I hope Fiskars replace your poor wee birdie, but so often they're not replaced so not only do you not have a valuable piece of equipment, it also deprives all the people you will be demonstrating to in the future from actually having the chance to see it.
Bad, bad person who stole my Lorraine's punch!!!!!

I feel saddened to read this, first Caths card went awol, now this. The worse part for me, is that on the whole, crafters are the nicest kind of people you can be with.....don't let one bad apple spoil it.....sorry for you, hate it when this sort of thing happens....xxx
