Baltimore Regional and my Weekend

I am still recovering from a very busy week and weekend. My DH and I left Thursday night for Baltimore and being from a town that has no fast food stores and only one stop light, my DH was ready to have a nervous breakdown by the time we found our hotel. It was poring down rain and dark by the time we had traveled our 3 hours. I had to be at the Convention Center by 7:30 to meet Carrie so she could get our tables ready for our WOW demonstrations and get tips from the camera man. It was kinda nice not having to wait in line. The demo went fine and since I was the second person who presented a WOW demo. I demonstrated how to do Paper Beads using our DSP paper and had three examples.

A lot of people who knew of me but didn't know what I looked like, came up and introduced themselves. It was really nice to put a face to a name. As always, the boards were full of great cards.

 After the seminar, my DH and I met up with Ilina Crouse.
 It was great to meet her and she was doing a WOW on Saturday. 

Then DH and I went to dinner to wait for the traffic to die down before the trek home. We got home around 10 pm and I had to do a few things to get ready for the craft fair I was doing the next day. We had to set up around 7:30 am. I had a pretty successful day (not as much as last year though) and then had to take everything down at 4 pm and then we had to get ready to go out. We traveled again about an hour and half to Richmond to see Hal Holbrook doing Mark Twain. He was incredible and more incredible, is the fact that he has been doing this for 30 years and he is now 85. Today, Sunday was my day of rest. I am getting ready to go to bed and begin a new week. 

Now I begin to make my projects for the Royal Blog Tour. Busy, Busy, Busy...... But love it!

Love your paper beads Jen -- I did a demonstration at my upline's event a few months back on the same thing. I like your use of them in the cards!

Hello Jennifer!

I was at the Baltimore Regional Fri, Oct 1st and I really enjoyed your demonstration. The beads are gorgeous! That was my first event of the kind, so I had the best time and now can't wait for the Convention next year:)

Great bead work. You make me tired just reading your blog as you're here, there and everywhere.
