BCTF over but not out

I need a badge making saying 'I attended BCTF...and survived'. What an experience the last 4 days have been. It was one of the most exhilarating, over-whelming, moral boosting, exhausting times of my life.

I met so many amazing talented people, who I will give more time and space to in the coming weeks and share some of the fantastic work that they produce. It was of course wonderful to have my partner in crime just around the corner. What was fun was realising that whoever liked her also liked me and vice versa.

As well as actually getting orders for new stockists, several other opportunites arose that had never entered my consciousness. One gallery want me to come teach some children's workshops. Another want to include me in an exhibition they are doing. Even an interiors stylist gave me her details and wants to 'talk'.

There is definitely alot going to be happening in my life as a consequence of doing BCTF and most of all the confidence to do so. I'm very excited about the future.

Actually, they only liked me. I just asked them to pretend to like you too! ;p

It was a lot of fun wasn't it? I think there's a good possibility that by this time next year you and I are going to be running the world.
Thanks for talking me in to it!! And for making it even more fun. xx

Wow, sounds like it was a great experience, and I'm glad you had fun! Can't wait to hear some of your 'future' things as a result of this show. Well done you. (I wish I lived closer to such an event to take part).
