Wow What a Week! As some of you know this past week was my first trip ever to the Atlanta Gift Show. I went as a vendor debuting my new baby bedding line and bringing along my party hats. It was such a whirlwind week, between traveling, setting up and talking my voice out! Not to mention meeting some super sweet people along the way. The other vendors were super and oh so helpful. I learned sooo much from just being there and listening to their experiences and advice. I went to get some exposure for my baby bedding line which is of course all vintage inspired, I have been working so long on bringing this all together and it was nice to finally share it and get some feedback. Do tell me what you think!
I also had the pleasure of meeting Janet of Shabby FuFu! She came to market to stock her lovely website. She is a beautiful lady and her Hubby was her sidekick for the show. They are a wonderful couple and she is someone I definately admire. She has created a booming site and tons of admiring fans of her style.
On Monday my plans to meet Jenn of Eye Candy Creations http://www.sweeteyecandycreations.typepad.com/ came about, oh what a darling! She came to the show to meet me and got to see my little booth then she whisk me away to a FAB dinner. We had lots to talk about both being crafty gals and mommies! I enjoyed her company sooo much and it was a nice way to end my time spent in Atlanta. She made my time away more enjoyable and I think we could have talked all night! Don't you love the pic of Jenn and Me? Our outfits were so similiar and we have never met before! You can tell I look exhausted, being on your feet all day selling your products is no easy task. I am currently recouping at home well sort of my glue gun is in overdrive again!
I made some wonderful contacts and of course I am up to my eyeballs in party hats it is a party hat party around here with crepe paper a flying! I missed my family terribly why I was away and got a taste of traveling. It would have been so nice if they could have come along and been there at the end of the day. I am happy to be home and back in my own bed and chatting with so many of you. I enjoyed my first trip to market and hopefully this won't be my last show, who knows where I will end up next! I couldn't believe the shopping there, so much to see and buy! Thank you to all of you who have sent me well wishes and helped in any way. I could not have done this alone without all the support of family and friends!
