Stampaway USA 2011
Mike's booth was always my first stop, and it wasn't just for the quirky inventory, but for a chance to visit with him and Chris, always a highlight of my Ohio trip. He was witty beyond words, never without a smile on his face, and the wink of mischief never far away.
Chris was gracious enough to give me a pin to wear with his photo and everytime someone would comment on it, I'd get teary eyed and have to walk away for fear I'd cry in front of a crowd. He was loved and he is missed, but I'm so glad I got the chance to visit with Chris again and to meet Kristin face to face.
Carol has attended 2 of my art retreat weekends, and like several others, she wanted to know when the next one will be held. Start looking at your October calendars girls!
I failed to get photos of Mary Jo McGraw, Cecile, Connie or Tammy. I was too tired to think straight and never once pulled out a camera while we were on the show floor. Michelle and Anne from St. Louis invited me to their room on Friday night after the Preview Party for our annual show & tell. We missed Lori, who didn't attend this year, but still managed to eat pizza and laugh til 3am!! And again I didn't take a single photo. Sheesh!
More to come, including photos from all 3 of my classes. Thanks for dropping by and do come again.
