First I saw Graphic 45... drooling here folks! Oh my this stuff is amazing, I love the feel and the looks! here are a few of their things in their booth.
Love this cone thingy... it has like a sugar coating on it!
And oh my - just move this into my house please - as is! GORGEOUS!!!
I would love this little lamp in my craft room - I have no idea what booth it was... sorry I was moving fast at that point as the show was opening -
I then spied Maya Road, just adore Caroline the owner, we were on a forum together many many moons ago - her buisness was just starting then. And now WOW she has some really cool things
Including a really cute dress form -
And then I saw them everywhere.. dress forms are the "in" thing now!
GCD's booth - Love those paper flowers!
7-Gypsies - great for hanging hardware on huh?
And this one caught my eye too... love the blue flowers.... I think this may have been the Prima booth? Maybe not... was on the move then too...
We had dinner last night with Tab from 7 Kids College Fund and her friend Jami Bova - Oh my love this ladies... my kind of fun girls! And we did some pretty good laughing.. just can't tell all the stories as I don't have signed waivers from them LOL Hope they aren't gonna sue me for showing the photo here.. don't have the sign -off on this either.. but oh well - it is a pretty good photo. Me - Tab - Heidi and Jami
I also got to meet Helene Kempf from Alota Rubber stamps today!!! I was so excited to actually meet her in person after being on her DT and getting to know her over the past few years... but a duh moment.. I was so excited to meet her in real life, I forgot to get a photo! Darn IT!!
I did get to get a photo with someone very special to me. This lady is one of the people that inspired me to get where I am today!
This is Rebecca Peck - she is a lead Fiskateer at Fiskars. LOVE LOVE LOVE this lady. You see we spent most of the time during our Fiskars Nifty Fifty training.. way back in 2007!! A great three day weekend learning to use Fiskars products and meeting other ladies from everywhere. But Rebecca and I just hit it off.. maybe the odd sense of humor we both have.. LOL!
You see during the weekend it was disussions with her that ... shoved me to try out for a few design teams. I was sooooo nervous and scared to do it. Kept saying - why would they want me? I am not what they are wanting probably - and she said.. hey the worst that they can do is not respond, say no and that is that. You had the experience to try for it and at some point you will find the one that is right for you. .... Well I went home from that show and two weeks later I tried out for the Stampavie DT.... and look at me now! First joining the Stampavie DT and then getting asked to work for them! I work for the greatest bosses in the world, I love my job and feel like I am pretty good at it- I can't wait for each part of my job and so look forward to the new things to come while working for this amazing company.
Man that got gushy huh? That is what happens when you are worn out tired, it is late and you are trying to say how special someone is and start babbling. Ok.. so the point is that Rebecca is pretty special to me and she is a real special person! LOL
Ok.. done - toast and have to turn in or I won't function at all in the morning and make it though the day tomorrow. Day three! Man it goes by pretty fast especially when you work so long for something.
