I'm back from Chicago. My trip was a great combination of lots of work and lots of fun.
CHA was big and busy. The Urban Lily booth looked great. And the UL products were well received. Everyone who passed through the booth were so friendly. Despite spending three days with Renata and Phil, we didn't get a photo together. But I did manage to get a few of the booth, below. I'm hoping Kim M and Adrienne, UL DT members will forward some photos, as I know they took some when they visited the booth
Left photo: The Urban Lily Secret Keeper Cards. What a hit they were. We loved the reaction from everyone as we would open them up to reveal the inside. Middle photo: The UL booth. Right photo: A fantastic little display piece for some of the smaller projects.
It was great to meet up with the girls from my other design teams, Maya Road and Paper Salon.
Deb, Caroline and Jess from Maya Road were so friendly and welcoming, as were all the DT girls who were working the MR booth. So lovely to meet them.
Also loved meeting up with the Paper Salon girls and go out with them a couple of times in the evenings, was great to spend time with them. Below is Jen, a fellow Crowded House fan and PS DT'er. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of everyone at the booth :-(
One other lovely lady I was able to meet was Kai-mei from Fontwerks. I have been a fan of Fontwerks for the last few years, and always love seeing the new products they release.
We met lots of other fun people. Will post more later. As well as some sight seeing photos of Chicago. Love, LOVE that city. Loved wandering the streets, catching the 'L' around town, jumping on and off the buses to get around town, going up tall towers with spectacular views, wandering through parks... Anyway, more of that in another post.
Thanks for visiting.
