Oh, what fun I had in Chicago at the CHA summer Super Show. Again, I came home wishing I had taken more pictures. But, when I'm at an event I either a) don't think to take more pictures or b) am too bashful to take more pictures. I need to get over my timidness and just do it because I love having the memories. And, yes, technically I know I'll always have the memories even without the pictures but I hope you know what I mean. :p
Here I am with the most wonderful PTI team: Debbie Olson, Heather Nichols, Nichole Heady, little ol' me, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Ellefson, and Mish Wooderson. Behind me is the PTI booth.
I think the Meet & Greet at the end of the day was a great way to just hang with the girls and chit chat. They were all so warm and friendly and genuine. I'm sure they were just beat after a busy day but they persevered and smiled some more. I really liked each and every single one of these ladies and I wish I could have found a way to tell them that without sounding like a major suck-up or a star-struck teenager geeking out over the Jonas Brothers. They are just icing on the cake to a wonderful stamp company.
I met Taheerah and I just have to say how tall I felt. :) I'm usually the short one, standing at a mere 5'3". Taheerah was just as sweet in person as she is online and I was so glad I got to meet her.
Here's Sara and Taheerah.
Here's one last picture from our get together on Friday night. In the front is Nadine, Taheerah, and me. In the back row is Sara, Marjorie, Cherie, and Leann. I so enjoyed getting to know these ladies better!!
It was so fun just walking through the PTI "store" and picking whatever I wanted off the shelves. I LOVED seeing all of Nichole's samples in person. How fun and awesome!!
You can also see the four make-and-takes that I did. The bottom left is the card and the felt flower we made on Friday. At the top of the picture is the Christmas tree card (which I goofed up so don't mind the bad inking job) and then on the right is the second card from Saturday. I got to use the envelope die and I liked it a whole lot more than I thought I would. That just might have to get added to my wish list! :)
I would go back in a heartbeat next year and would highly recommend another get together with the forum friends.
