MT and other thoughts...







ok, as promised, here are some MT pictures. but you know what i really suck as a scrapbooker b/c i didn't take any of these pictures - i have to confess i borrowed them from deb (LOL) but that is ok b/c she takes better photos than me. so this was our booth. i must say MT was quieter this year than last. i mean sales were excellent but the only way i could do an easy and fair judgement was that we passed out fewer catalogs than usual and we did a lot more visiting with the other trade show ppl we know. during many shows, deb and i hardly get to get out of the booth. but at least this time, i got to stop by and say hello to some people that we get to see at all the trade shows and that was cool.

will we do 3 shows next year? maybe. we are contemplating it. but we are also contemplating some other things too - like the fact that i need a vacation. IF we don't do 3 shows, though, we already have something VERY COOL planned that would coincide with our releases.

the best part of the MT trip was having all of our family there (all 3 sets of grandparents were there!) they were so kind to bring us lunch and drop us off at the show each day and of course spoil the boys. so we paid them back by giving the grandparents a night off to have dinner and see mystere as a treat on us. i think they enjoyed it.

i also loved to see noah and jonathan interacting. they both cracked me up even being as young as they are. i can tell that jonathan is a bit quieter than noah (especially since noah now loves to SCREAM at the top of his lungs in joy) and noah has already instigated some things that jonathan didn't like. here is one of them:

during a photo shoot, the boys started to sway to the right and soon, jonathan was smelling noah's arm pits and you can see he was not happy - LOL - poor kid. we also got pictures of N and J where they were holding hands with each other happily. but it was nice meeting J and getting to hold him a bit. he has TOTALLY crazy hair that will not sit flat on his head (a faux-hawk!) and he is funny too! it will be interesting to see how they boys do when we go to hong kong/china at the end of the year. they will probably be at the crawling stage by then and that should be interesting!

speaking of interesting things, be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for a special announcement coming soon from us! we are trying to finalize the details now. that is all i can say for now.

and finally my RAK - david and noah picked the winners and i know that no cheeseburgers or milk was sent to them in the last day so the winner was picked randomly and they were not bribed! Heather B. you are the winner! email me so we can get your prize out!

have a great tuesday!

PS - word on the street is that ppl are madly looking for some of our mega bottlecaps after seeing what you can do with them on ali's blog - be sure to check back tomorrow, i might just have another RAK to give away!

I love seeing the picture of the two of them, they are so cute. I did see more on Kate's blog, I hope Cass didn't give you too hard of a time. When she asked what I liked from your stuff I told her I want two of everything (one for me one for classes) so I can't wait until it hits the shelves, although sometimes things don't even make it to the shelves in her store we pull it right out of the box befor it even gets put in the system.
