I’m back from the Mall of America!! It was so hard to wake up this morning, but it had to be done. I am super tired, but it was soooo worth it! I have a few pictures to share! I always get home and wish I had taken more! If you have pictures from this weekend and wouldn’t mind emailing them to me, I would love to have some more! The first picture is Kimberly, me, and Jessica at our booth. This is where we did the make and take all weekend. I think I could explain it in my sleep, but it was great to see everyone who came through to do the make and take! Thank you to those of you who came by and introduced yourselves as readers of my blog. It was so nice to meet you! On Friday night I went to dinner at California Pizza Kitchen with the ladies in the picture below. These gals made me feel so special! They each created something and gave it to me as a gift…all kinds of wonderful things! Thank you Tami, Pegi, Tami, Paris, Amy, Pine (I still can’t call you Heather!), Michelle, Kathleen, Kristina, and Kris for making my time in Minnesota so special! Can I come back again next weekend!? *wink* On Saturday night, Stampendous sponsored an all-night crop at the Apple Valley Archiver’s. There was a catered dinner and cake (it’s all about the food for me!) and this was my opportunity to SHOP! I picked up some stamp sets from Inque Boutique, bunches of buttons from Foof-a-La, some cute papers, and a few other fun embellishments. Saturday was a really long day, but I’m never too tired to shop at Archiver’s! I didn’t get much time to shop at the Mall of America, but I did buy some white chocolate raspberry peanut butter from P.B. Loco right behind our booth. It is soooo good!! And I also bought these cute Sketchers to wear during the show because they seemed super comfy when I tried them on in the store. Well, they were comfortable, but I think they needed to be broken in a bit more because the back of the shoe dug into my heel all day long! By the end of the day my heels were bleeding. I just wanted to say thanks to Tami for coming to my rescue at dinner on Friday night with two blister Band-aids! I wouldn’t have made it through the weekend without them!! When I arrived home last night I discovered that my wonderful husband had painted my new stamp room while I was away! I was so happy I almost cried! Now I can finally begin unpacking and stamping again…. just in time too because the deadlines are piling up!!
