Hi friends! I arrived home mid-week last week from a very quick 4 day trip to Las Vegas for the Create and Connect trade show (formerly the CHA Summer trade show). This is the show where craft manufacturer's present their newest products for buyers. While Melissa Frances (the company I work with) did not exhibit at the show, we did participate in a separate, multi-vendor extravaganza show. It was so nice to see many of our friends and buyers there. I then stayed for the first day of the Create and Connect show to walk the trade show floor, see what's new and talk to my friends who work in the industry.
What's a craft related post without a craft project to share, right? This layout is one I made for Scrapbook and Cards today magazine last year. I love those 3 photos from our Israel trip in 2011, and so it was time that they made it into my scrapbook.
So, what have I been working on since coming home? Beyond my job, Terri Brush and I are madly working on getting our website up and ready for our "La Dolce Vita" Tuscan retreat next June. So many of you are anxiously awaiting it's launch. Thank you! Soon my friends...it will be ready to launch very soon!
