And, MJ and I during the show:
It was sooo much fun! We met many of Robyn's fans and, if you can believe it, a few of our own! (shout out to Jake - a fan of Custom Crops that stopped by to say hi and to give us a great card he made for each one of us! He was so sweet!) There were many of you who stopped by to say hi and that you enjoy our youtube videos! People were so nice!
One of my most favorite things from the show was a brand-spankin'-new friendship. We met Donna Mundinger, who is a Custom Crops designer and a very, very talented lady. You can check out her blog here.
She was an absolute hoot and we had such a great time with her. The trip wouldn't have been the same without her. Here's a pic of Miranda, Donna and I at McCormick and Schmick's:
So, after a full two days of compliments and having fun, it was down to business. On Sunday, it was time to shop! We saw a lot of really cool new products, including the eclipse machine by Sizzix. Of course, we spent some time at the Provocraft booth getting a demo of the Cricut Cake machine and we even were invited to an event on Sunday night that was the "official" debut of the product. Everyone at the event received a Cricut Cake! And to that I say, Provocraft Rocks!
I have OVER 300 pictures to share, but I'll put them up over the next week so that you don't suffer from image overload! Here's just a quick peek at some of the stuff we saw:
Scrapbook layout at Studio Calico - one of the new paper companies that had great product. They are going to be a hit. Their booth was always full of people. Check out their site here.
Creative canvas art at gcd Studios by Melody Ross
Bingo cards at Jenni Bowlin Studios. Get inspired at her blog here.
Awesome wreath with paper flowers at Pink Paislee. Find their website and blog here. We could have purchased everything in the booth!
A super fun new product at Webster's Pages called "bloomers." Check out their website here. The owner Brandin was so friendly.
Just a small sampling of things at the Tim Holtz booth.
Which leads me into my next segment! Here Miranda, Donna and I are with the King of Crafts!
You are definitely going to want to check out all his new product. It's unbelievable - wait a minute. We are talking about Tim Holtz. It is believable!
We also got a demo of the Tattered Angels new Glimmer Mist, Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam products - and, look who we bumped into:
It's Heidi Swapp! What an honor to meet her. She is so down to earth and sweet as can be. Plus, she's super talented! You can see many of her digital products here at House of 3. You can read Heidi's personal blog here.
I also took about 50 videos while we were there with my Flip camera. So, I will be posting those later as well.
Happy Friday everyone. I'm so glad to be back and I can't wait to get into my studio and create!
