Hello from Chicago

Greetings from the Windy City!!! Hannah and I are taking a few minutes out to check in on the forum and emails. The show opened today and we are swimming in ideas, visions of products and classes. There are lots of beautiful papers coming your way. There are lots of not so beautiful papers as well, so we are needing to sift through catalogues and make some decisions. It is always fun and overwhelming to see all the new products. We were lucky enough to get lots of paper samples today, so we will be creating a "COMING SOON" wall in the store when we get back.

We had a chance to see some of the city on this trip. Took the L train to downtown, walked some of the Magnificent Mile, and visited Navy Pier. Navy Pier was by far my favourite, even though Hannah wouldn't ride the ferris wheel. It was a fun day - although it was REALLY hot.

I am being yanked from my chair so we can go back to the room and look through catalogues and make some plans. We have classes at 7:00 in the morning. No rest for the wicked!!!!
