I know I've been a bad blogger but...

Monday, August 9, 2010

I have been SO busy since coming home from Chicago. I had Scott's 13th birthday on Monday after I returned and wanted to spend some time with my kids after being away from Lily for the first time. Then I got a special assignment (don't worry I'll share more info when I can) and another Cricut Demo at Best Buy that is going on every weekend in August and then there's my EK Success class at Joann's. So I apologize for being a bad blogger...

It was so much fun to see friends and make new ones while I was there. Here's a few of my favorite photos from the trip...




One of the most genuine women I know, Angela From Unity Stamp Co. I really {heart} this lady and her amazing spirit. So excited about a special chat we had during the show!




Then there's Heather, Oh how I wish I lived closer to her in San Diego. She is such a beautiful girl inside and out. So happy I was brave and went to Scrapbook Royalty's Royal Slumber Crop. It was there I met Heather and she was so sweet and fun to chat with.




I was lucky enough to get into the city with these amazing ladies. I love hanging out with Lori and Bridget (loved her) from Imaginisce. I had been lucky enough to meet Lori earlier this year in Utah so it was super fab to be able to spend some time together in Chicago. What a cab ride huh Lori! Oh my...LOL. We had a great time at the Grand Lux Cafe on Michigan Ave.



And then there was this night...so much sharing and fun. Loved learning new things about all these sweet and talented ladies. Good Times!



Here's Crystal and I at the Imaginisce booth helping out with the make and take. I loved working with Crystal (aka Pinky...wink) she is such a sweet girl with so many talents! It was really a pleasure meeting her. She was kind enough to also hook me up with a place to rest my head a few nights and it was really fun hanging out with her!



Getting to meet Ashley Cannon Newell at the Super Show was a special treat. She is even more beautiful in person and so sweet!


I was thrilled to finally meet Rae!! I have long admired her beautiful cards that grace every Papercraft's issue! She was the Gallery Idol winner last year!



I was part of this fantastic collage posted at PaperCrafts Connection! Can you find me? Susan Opel, Cath, Maren and all the girls at Papercrafts are the most amazing women. So glad to have the opportunity to see them during my Chicago getaway!



And finally these two...words can not express how much I love these girls. Jimmi and Maren are so much fun to be around. They make me smile and laugh so much. I was such a vagabond all week long going from place to place and these two made me feel right at home. I {heart} you special ladies!!

There's still more pics but it's so late for me and I still have lots of work ahead of me tonight so I'll try to post more often this week!

I really need to dig up and pic of Robyn Schaub and myself...that girl is my new bestie! I loved staying with her my first two nights in Chicago. She hooked us up with a beautiful room at the Hyatt and it was first class all the way. Aside from Kauai, it was the nicest place I have ever stayed and I really had fun getting to know her!
Ok...off to get crafty!
