Chicago or Bust!

Jean and I are heading out for Chicago tomorrow morning. It's about 15 hours on the road, so we'll spend the night somewhere and get there Monday afternoon. The trade show is Tuesday-Thursday and the consumer show is on Friday and Saturday. Our workshops are on Saturday at 12:30 and 5:30pm. You can also find me on Friday at noon at the Craft Academy when I'll be showing samples and telling you about all the new products I saw at the trade show, then at 1pm I'll be at the Westcott booth to judge "America's Top Crafter", which you'll be able to watch later on YouTube. At 2pm I'll be teaching a Make It/Take It at the Michaels booth. After that....... a nice relaxed dinner and getting "goodie" bags ready for the workshops. We've had SO many manufacturers offer to donate product for these, it'll be worth coming to the class just to walk out with a "Little Yellow Bicycle" bag full of goodies. I'll also be at the Super Crop on Saturday afternoon at 3:30pm and have Scrapbook Memories show DVDs to give away!

Gotta run - still working on project sheets to put on a CD for everyone in the Christmas Crafts class. Jean and I will both be in both classes, but Christmas Crafts is "my baby" so to speak. Hope to see you there. BTW: I have a laptop, but it's not set up for the internet, so no blog or FB entries till I get back around August 4th. Sorry, but I'll have LOTS to share then, so check back!

I really, really gotta run - I still have to pack and load the van! Yikes.......! And pick up the dog from the vet.... I have a feeling I'll be up all night....... Have a great weekend!

Yours truly,
Julie :)
