HAPPINESS IS HOCHANDA....

You may have seen the shows, or read on Facebook, that we had 3 TV shows on Hochanda yesterday, with Lesley Wharton (Chocolate Baroque) doing wonderful things with a selection of CI products.  The reaction to the shows was amazing and incredible, and we are so grateful to Lesley and also her husband David (who was helping Malcolm with sorting out the orders back at home - and there were a lot to sort out!!). Also thanks to the lovely people at Hochanda for making us so very welcome.

I am going to post just a few of the fabulous makes by the CI teamies below, that featured on the shows, and helped so much to show off the products.  Makes here tonight are by Coco, Helen and Flo, with more to follow...












Do leave a comment if you saw the shows, or have been inspired by the makes.

Many thanks,

Jean x

Wonderful work! I watched the shows and was so impressed! Loved Lesley's demonstrations and am definitely inspired! I have several of your stamps already and really want some of the gorgeous trees but can't afford them at the mo. They are on my wish list though! Your DT did you proud! I hope there will be lots more shows! I love Hochanda as the presenters enthusiasm is infectious! xxx

Beautiful makes by your Design Team, who always do you proud, and what a lovely selection of cards. I was thrilled to see your gorgeous stamps were being featured on Hochanda and I watched the shows on Catch Up yesterday. Lesley is a true crafter and I thought that she did an amazing job showcasing your beautiful stamps. I love the way that she comes up with new ideas and reminds me of things that I've done previously but then forgotten about as we crafters often do as we move on to using new techniques. I hope to see more of your wonderful stamps on Hochanda again soon Jean, it made my day! Crafty hugs, Sandra x

I watched the shows and thought Lesley did a fantastic job. I was inspired to dig out my CI paper pads and make some cards, so thanks very much for the gentle nudge to my mojo! Can't wait to see more CI on the telly!

Jannet said...

Wonderful shows! I will actually have to clean my stamp block now, so I can follow those techniques : )

Fabulous samples by Flo and Helen using the cottage and all the trees, also the paper pads.. SO clever, and SO beautiful work, wow.

Beautiful creations!
So sorry that I have not seen that shows. We can also now see hochanda on our channel. But I cannot see everything in these 3 hours.
Pity that I have missed that part of the show.

I managed to see one of the shows and I thought Lesley did a fab job with your great stamps. Great inspiration from Coco, Helen and Flo. x

Florence said...

Great shows Jean. It really showed the quality of the products beautifully especially those gorgeous paper books. I couldn't watch the programs live because we have a slow broadband connection. It took about 3 hours to download each program but definitely worth the wait. Lovely samples from everyone and fab demos by Lesley.
