Getting ready for QVC shows!

qvc_style_uk
I've got a busy week this week! Technically I'm still on maternity leave but a HUGE opportunity came up with QVC America, and I just couldn't turn it down!

They've not been really in to craft for awhile, and with the recent growth market they've decided to get involved again! I'm honoured to have been invited to be a headline guest presenter for the new CraftCorner starting next Wednesday at 3pm Eastern US time (that'll be at 8pm here!).

I'm taking my favourite Ultimate Pro on the show, as well as our Spectrum Noir markers and the fabulous Frou Frou CD. Have a look at some of the tremendous samples the team has made for me to take:

Did you see recently on my Facebook page that'd I'd taken Olly to the passport office? Well I couldn't make this trip without him (and Simon of course)! I might never be finished packing though....Oliver's case is bigger than mine!

We fly over this Wednesday for a training seminar Thursday. It seemed silly to fly back home for the weekend, so we'll take Oliver sightseeing over the weekend. But I've heard they've already got a foot of snow and are expecting another storm, so I'm not sure what we'll see!

I'll be sure to keep you updated here and on Facebook with how our flight was and get some behind-the-scenes pics too!

    Wow - what an opportunity . Good luck ( and here's hoping Olly sleeps, (PS has anyone given you the tip of ensuring you feed him / give him a dummy to suck on for the landing? It'll help equalise the pressure in his ears ) xx

    Such a wonderful opportunity for you Sara! It's completely understandable that you take Oliver and Simon with you, being that it's Oliver's first flight it's nice that you all share it together. I hope you all have a wonderful time and you all enjoy the time there when you're not busy with QVC. I hope Oliver enjoys his first flight and I look forward to seeing any photos .

    Wow going over to the USA, Oliver 1st flight. You all take care, take lots of pict's. Keep warm, take a hot water bottle! You can warm the pram, then take it out. It's very cold over there.

    QVC, USA will love you! Will try to watch it go out, if they still allow us watch online. Keep safe. xxx

    Hi Sara, As you know Sharon, I and the kids moved to the States (Michigan) recently and we both look forward to seeing you on the television. I am sure Sharon will be looking to continue to fill her crafty stash now that I have furnished her new craft room in our new home. Take care when you come over and will see you soon. Kev & Sharon xx

    Wow what a fabulous opportunity Sara, you would have been mad not to have taken them up on this, besides it will be a great excuse for you and Simon to spend some quality time with Oliver, just the three of you. Have a safe journey and most of all have fun, make sure to remind us when to tune in! xxx

    Hi Sara
    What a great opportunity. You deserve it I know you put such an effort into everything you do and your team do too. Does this mean we won't be getting all our create & craft shows in the future boo hoo.
    I hope everything goes well for you and that Oliver is good on his first flight I am sure he will be fine.
    Take care and good luck xx

    Wow great to see your taking the American market by storm. Well done you and show the Americans that we 'Brits' are just as good at crafting as they are (maybe even better but then I'm bias), Hope you have a wonderful time and Oliver has a fab time on his first trip abroad with mummy and daddy.
    Enjoy xx
