Come Away with Me to Create and Craft TV

Morning............... I can't believe its Monday morning already.  I've done the unbelievably early taxi run and am back enjoying a quiet early morning coffee and thought I'd share some of the weekends highlights with you.  If you follow me you'll know I spent the weekend down at the Create and Craft TV studios in Peterborough as the guest on the Weekender Graphic 45 shows.  WOW! what a weekend.  The shows are weeks in the planning for the team at C & C and in the making for us guests, creating the set samples to  complement the collections.  I had a lot of late nights and early starts over the last seven days but all well worth it seeing the samples on set and ready to be shared on the live shows. 
Here's one or two behind the scenes shots taken before one of my shows with Nigel. Our set is to the left, lights low while the live show is rolling at the back of the studio. 
Our fabulous floor Manager and camera crew 
Anne and Chris our show producer and director 
I loved each and every one of the shows. they seem to be over so quickly.  I hope you enjoyed them if you tuned in.  I'm looking forward to sharing the fabulous world of Graphic 45 with you again in the coming months. Huge thanks to Nigel, Leonie, Dean, Stephanie the Production team and floor crew for a great weekend of craftiness and huge thanks to Lyn and Karen for their gorgeous samples too.  Girls I may be getting in touch again shortly :-)  ..........

I'm off to unpack the car, catch up on mails and orders and then start the to do list for today so enjoy your Monday, thanks for joining us and calling by and I look forward to sharing more craftiness with you soon :-) 


  1. Morning Clare, Fabulous shows at the weekend, I managed to catch quite a lot of them, great samples and fabulous demo's, you always amaze me with your 'laid-back' approach if things don't quite go to plan haha, I would be panicking like mad.

A brilliant weekend, and thank you for these behind the scenes piccies, fabulous !!
