On the road again....

Hello from the road. We are driving home from CHA, we stayed and did the CHA Consumer Super Show! We had two stores carrying our products at the consumer show, so we were able to direct people to those retailers that wanted to buy my products!!! Each of the two stores sold out of several of the papers from the three released lines, and sold out of all the "Victoria's Street" house chipboard mini albums and Mini Paddies! (That was nice to hear.) Both retail stores also reordered products!!
As you can see from the picture above I've set up an "office" in the car... my cell phone, inhaler (b/c my asthma has been a little more active), chap-stick (a must have for me), a pen, and credit cards (b/c I had to reorder more products this morning due to the amount of orders we got at CHA). When the roads are good I work, when the roads are bad I'm sick to my stomach!! FUN FUN!!
Dan driving and listening to his I-Pod. The weather yesterday through FL and GA was awful!! The rain came down so hard you couldn't talk or hear each other!! And we had to drive sooooo very slow...
Me in the car yesterday, resting after such a long and exciting week!!
I had to share this picture with all of you, this man and his son came by one of the retail stores that where selling my products at the Super Show and they did my make-n-take, a little owl book mark!! They were so sweet and isn't that little boy just aadorable!!!

Okay this is so cool, I just got this email about this adorable kit that is being sold here: http://scrapinkits.blogspot.com/ using my papers along with other great products!! It is such a sweet little kit with such fun things in it, I had to share it with everyone!!!
We should be home in a few hours and we can't wait to see Henry and our fur-babies!! -Nikki

So glad you had a blast and the consumer portion was a hit.
I am glad Deana and Julie directed me this way...I am really loving your stuff.
And the pic with you laying back in the seat with a blanket...that is sooo me on our roadtrips. If you look closely to part of the windshield infront of the passenger side, you can see toe prints. hahah

Just found you via Scrapbook Update and want to say that I love your papers and want to wish you all the luck with your new line. Glad your CHA debut went so well. I just love the pink Christmas tree paper and want to say thanks for the inspiration.
