We're Here!

Laura and I arrived safe and sound (well, more or less) last night and settled in. They gave us rooms on the same floor, but not anywhere near each other. Perhaps we made more of an impression the last time we were here than we thought?

Anyway, a full day ahead today! Here's a quick run-down of some of the events. We'll be posting pictures, etc. as the day progresses (assuming technology cooperates).

First thing this morning: Product Lightning Round. This is like speed dating for crafters. Vendors have about 3 minutes to tell us about their latest and greatest products. Enough to entice us to come to their booths on Sunday.

Then I'm taking classes the rest of the day with Kim Hughes (former designer for Cornish Heritage Farms and now owner and lead designer of Paper Smooches), Printworks and Michael Strong. Laura is taking a couple of Impression Obsession classes and a couple of Copic classes.

Don't forget to comment here on the blog and on our Facebook page. We'll be choosing a winner today from here AND from FB and another winner tomorrow from both locations for some excellent goodies. Plus, we just enjoy the feedback and support. As much fun as this is (and it really is fun) it's also exhausting, so we enjoy reading your good wishes!

More soon!

Yea! Glad to hear you made it safe and sound. Why don't you talk to Micheal about coming and doing classes? Hope it's a day of fun classes. Enjoy!

Oooh, I'd love to take a class with Kim! Enjoy and post pictures for us!

I am so jealous of you two...not only do you get to check out all the new crafting goodies, but you are in old stomping grounds where I lived for several years, including grad school at BU. Say "hello" for me!!!

Sounds like some full days, can't wait to see what you bring back, and to have you share your new techniques!
