My first demo day!

I was asked by Hobbycraft to demo in their Milton Keynes store yesterday. I really had no idea what this would entail but the really friendly staff (and an email discussion with the lovely Kim) reassured me. 
I decided to try and show how some of their wooden items could be customised and 'grunged' up a little. There is a tendency to buy these items and add a little paint and then that's that... so hopefully I gave a few people a little inspiration... I know the staff fell in love with the reindeer! 
These items are the ones I made whilst I was there - I'll show the prep pieces another time (as I know they'll suit a few challenges nearer to the end of December!!!) If you would like to see these projects in person I have left them in the shop... happy hunting!
