CHA here we come

I have to finishing packing and then I am out the door for Chicago for a very exciting week at the Craft and Hobby Show.
I hope to have some pictures to post for you and will try to keep you up to date as what we are doing.
My niece Cathy goes with me and keeps me organized making sure I am going down the same aisle I was in before going in a booth.  (some times 3 sides of the booth are  open with 3 different aisles and it is very easy to get distracted when i see something in another booth in a different aisle.  She is my "traffic manager" and does a great job at it.

We are taking classes all day Monday (I will be in one of Tim Holtz's classes  yay!) and then on Tuesday and Wednesday we have a class each day, but the rest of the time I will be shopping trying to find the newest and best things for you.   I will have lots of new ideas to share with you I am sure.

I will resume shipping on the 25th.  You can continue to email me your orders and I will try to respond to let you know I received them while in Chicago. (early morning or late evening).  Thanks again for being great customers, but most of all great friends.
