Here We Go Again

Well it's that time of year again........ it's Top Drawer time.
My studio looks like this.

& my head feels like this!

This will be the 3rd time we have done the show, it will be interesting to see how it goes. The 1st year people were like "Belle & Boo who?" then last year we heard lots "ooh I know Belle & Boo" lets hope this year it's not a case of "we are ssoooo over Belle & Boo" It's a nerve racking time. I am setting up the stand with Russ & Patrick's help tomorrow and then the show opens on Sunday, it is actually a lot of fun once the stand is up......... but did I mention before hand its kinda scary, aaahhhhhhhhhhh!


  1. I definitely don't think that people will say that Belle & Boo is history! Once one knows the beautiful things you make, it's hard to forget them - in the very positive way.

    And with that absolutely fabulos book you just made (it's so well-made), well then it can only be a successful show.

    Have a good time. :)

  2. I'm sure you're gonna do great!!

    (when my mind is messy I don't have such nice decoration on top ;)

  3. I know for sure that people will NOT be thinking that Mandy :) I'm sure it will be a fabulous show, good luck. x

  4. It will be wonderful! I can hardly wait to see (via blog, sadly) your set up this year :)

  5. Good luck, you'll go down a storm! X

  6. You will bedazzle everyone who comes to your booth with your lovely creations!
    Best of luck,

  7. i so wish i was around the corner so i could come see your beautiful space...

    my most recent blog is about cleaning my "studio"... and features your new book which i adore :) xx

    good luck, not that you need it

  8. Oh you enJOY that show to the max, Mandy.
    Happy hugs for a lovely weekend! xxooxx

  9. You can't get enough Belle and Boo especially when you keep presenting us with the most stunning creations which are irresistable. I imagine people stopping at your stand, being captivated by what they see and buying up BIG.

    I look forward to hearing all about it.

  10. Got my goods today (books must be seperate - am going to order more too - haven't got around to it!). Anywho maker of Boo, I highly doubt any child would ever be over your sweet two (ie. Belle and Boo); and, any adult with a childhood imagination still lingering in their brain wouldn't either. Have fun @ Top Drawer. (Funny, my word verification was wineso - and I would so wine if someone was over B & B, or I'd boo hoo hoo - again very very very unlikely to occur [ever].

  11. Have a wonderful time! I've looooved your stuff for so long. You deserve every success. Will be turning my online shop around and desperately want to include the Belle and Boo stuff on there

    Big Hugs!!
    Take lots of water and sweets! Those trade shows can be so tiring!

  12. I'm sure people with still be thinking great things.

    Good luck, have a great time.

  13. with such beautiful little things what could possibly go wrong? Wish I could go! And I love you studio!x

  14. Over Belle & Boo??? Never! I'm sure anyone who was lucky enough to go were thinking, I knew they'd be back with more gorgeous things. It's always exciting to see what new treats you have for your young and old fans :-)
    PS Love the new book! I was greedy and bought three, one for my little girl, one as a gift and one ofcourse for ME!
