It's now Thursday evening and I'm worn out...... 3 days of walking and talking is fun, but, strangely enough, it's also hard work. I've been going to the trade shows since 1991 and I really enjoy it, mainly because I get to catch up with friends. Here I am with Sue and Julie from Leeds in England. I grew up in Bradford which is near Leeds so it was lovely to meet friends from "home"; I got a true "Brit fix" and some Rowntrees Fruit Pastels - yummy sweets, from a new friend from Glasgow.
Colleen and Marianne were in the Copic booth demoing markers and promoting a copy of their new book!!!! Would have loved to have seen it, but someone "borrowed" it before I got there and forgot to return it..... hopefully it will be in the stores soon :)
Claudine Hellmuth demoing in the Ranger booth
and, of course, Tim Holtz.
I found Wendy Sanger, from Tattered Angels demoing in the Walnut Hollow booth. The mists are a great way to add color to wood.
It's almost midnight and hard to keep awake, but here's a few of the over 200 photos that I took of project displays, etc. It takes quite a while to crop and reduce the file size of each photo before posting, so I'll have to wait till the weekend to add more.
Good night........... Y'all come back now......
