I'm absolutely spoiled. Twice a year, I get to attend one of the finest and most exciting trade shows--the Craft & Hobby Association trade show. In addition, the last two shows have had a companion show for consumers, where retailers can sell goods and show off how products are used and manufacturers can get feedback on products directly from the consumers. And the best part is that consumers can learn a new craft and expand their skills. It's really amazing to see and to experience the demonstrations and make-it-take-its at both shows. So that's where I was last week, which is why there weren't many posts. In the coming weeks, I've got some making to do, so I'll be sharing lots of fun stuff. Meanwhile, take a stroll around some of my buddies' blogs.
