I think this is a missing thread, Judi, back to the naughty step

for you :D

One week and we are on our way to grapevine convention.

It is a 6 hour drive :( but so worth it :D I go not only to

see what is new but so many of the venders have become

my friends and to be frank I miss them when I do not

see them. It has been 3 years since I have been able to

make the trip due to surgeries so my pain pills are packed, yahooooo,

then i will put the rest of the stuff in.

Get ready for lots of info and pictures so you can be at the

convention through my eyes. One important thing i do is eat

Mexican food in Grapevine as it is soooo good i truly look forward to it/

I am thinking about entering the ATC contest. I have only entered once

and it took alot of courage for me to do that 3 years ago.

Is anyone else going??

I will see Barb benson there and Laela will not be going this summer

and will miss her.

Is there anything special you wpuld like pictures of?? NOOOOOO I am

not going to be in any of the pictures :eek: :o

Oh before I forget Judi you can get off the naughty step now

Take pictures of any new toys you see or demos of any new techniques. You be careful now and make sure you don't hurt anything that will keep you from going. We want you to have fun because you deserve it.

I plan to go to Stampaway in Cincinnati on Aug. 13. I live about 20 minutes away from Sharonville Conv. Cntr. I always have a fun time. It is 9am to 5pm. I usually go about one o'clock. I figure I can get into just as much "trouble" in four hours as I can in eight. Ha!

can I really use it or is it an impulse buy??

Thank goodness the camera does not know the diff so you all

can see what is going on :D No pictures of me because the gray

matter of my brain has gone and turned my hair grey to :eek:

Mary I can hardly stand the excitment that is building.

I really need to get to work on the ATC for the contest, I do need to

represent our club here. They have a really weird theme they want

and am trying really hard to wrap my brain around it,

I will put them on the arms as i am taking both my

electric and push chair. Harold can help me and one of the

venders always lets me put my goodies under her tabel.

I am getting really excited,
