So for the second year in a row, I am missing the summer CHA show in Chicago…the advantus team is either already there or will be there tomorrow setting up and getting everything ready for the weekend. I really hate missing the show. I love seeing all my industry friends… it’s really the only time that we are all in once place and get a chance to catch up just a bit and see what everyone has been up to! Not to mention just the energy that exists at a show. It’s totally inspiring and invigorating! Sigh… I am so lucky to have awesome people on my team that I know will do a great job in my absence! There are a few sneak peeks out there floating around. If you are curious… you can check some of the stuff out here on the Scrap Etc. BLOG…Monique has posted images from the catalog just to get everyone excited! http://www.moniquemclean.typepad.com … you will have to scroll past all the basic grey sneaks! I keep wanting to play around with the new stuff that I have in my possession… but I have like ZERO energy. I hate it. but I am trying to go easy on myself!
If you are there checking out the Scrap Etc. site, be sure to check out the details of Monique’s (she is the owner) 2008 event. She has invited me to participate in her event next year in april. It will be in Nashville at the Gaylord…the place is amazing, and a wonderful venue for an event! I taught for her in 2006, and had one of the most fabulous experiences of my teaching career. She has a really different vision for an event. Her goal is to inspire LIFE… the theme is about telling your own story, and focusing on what you want from life… daring to DREAM. I am really excited to be a part of it. I am already working on something that I think will be very special. It’s all so right down my alley!
ACK! It’s almost midnight… it will only be a mere 2 hrs. before Connor will be hungry.
Off to bed.
