Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – British Craft Awards – Papercraft Blog of the Year. That’s me! Wow!
Well I have some news for you today! It’s been a manic few weeks here recently, as many of you know, we are in the midst of moving house, and while we had a predicted date to move, that’s been and gone and in the past, sadly with no firm date ahead of us yet. I’m praying sooner rather than later, living in limbo does not sit well with someone like me who works to extreme time planning and organisation!
However, a week or so back I attended the British Craft Awards ceremony in Birmingham where the winners of various awards were announced.
I’d been nominated as Papercraft Blog of the Year, and so many of you kindly voted for me when I popped up a blog post here. Well, as an award solely based on the public votes, I’m thrilled, humbled (and completely honest, a bit shocked still) to share that I won the award!
Me! me? Me??? Really? Yes, I’m still in that zone!!!
I was in a category that was made up of exclusively big name brands and household name brands and so it blew me away that I won it.
So I am sharing the photo they snapped on the day – yes, I am modelling that shocked “did you call the right person?” look really well, and also my snapshot of my trophy on the day.
I’m also super excited to share that Stampin’ Up! also won awards for Brand of the Year and Retailer of the Year. The 2nd one is amazing, we don’t have any retail outlets, just demonstrators. How cool is that?!
Out of 5 categories, Stampin’ Up! and I won all 3 of our nominations and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such an amazing company and humbled to know all of you out there who read my blog, send me emails and share the love. You are amazing and the very best.
