First stop was to teach a lovely bunch of ladies who belong to the Crafters Home network. It was my first time educating for them and I had a blast.
Next day we were headed for the show to start the set up.
As usual, Friday at the show is education day. 85 retailers all excited so how do you keep them quiet???
You make them do colouring in, lol.
It even worked on all my assistants lol. Can you spot Gentleman Jim? Its my only photo of him from the show...not sure how that happened!!!
Even the lovely Patti, who is my trusty right hand woman, sat down to enjoy
Then its back on to the show floor for more prep.
Smooching with the fabulous Dina Wakley
And before you know it its showtime.
The adorable Suze Weinberg
Fabulous ear rings made from one of my stamps
The ever so lovely Seth Apter
and Marjie Kemper
The lovely Jonathan Fong, first time of meeting but obviously a brother from another Mother !!
See how wonderfully we coordinate!!
Lots of chats with Dawn Bibby, bringing Dylusions to The Craft Channel
The ever so talented Jamie
Now this stand was the pick of the show for me. Their colour and enthusiasm just stood out. They had the most fabulous Day of the Dead papers and they kindly gave me some to do a project. It won't be till I get home but keep your eyes peeled.
He adores me really !!!
And before you know it its time for it all to come down again !!!
Then on to a plane bound for San Fransisco
I'm teaching at The Creative Escape and the next few days will be jam packed.
I'm stocking up at Whole Foods for all the good stuff to keep me healthy
Unfortunately that's all the photos I have...too busy working and socialising, lol, to take many.
I'll be back with some of my individual samples.
