amazing...

that is the only word i know to describe how this CHA went. it is so hard to believe that only 9 shows ago, we started out with a tiny little 6 ft table and a peg board and here is where we are now:








now some might say "whoa it took you 9 shows to get here" well yeah. i am proud to say it did take 9 shows. slow and steady wins the race you know!

but i want to thank everyone who has asked/hounded/harassed their LSS to stock us b/c we were busy non-stop. even with 5-6 of us working on taking orders, sometimes, there were still people waiting to speak to us. i think part of the show, i counted like 40 people in our booth looking at all the beautiful projects (thank you design team) and the products. and for that i thank you all. it is b/c of you that we can continue to offer great products at great prices.

and i am glad to think that we didn't disappoint. you all have energized deb and i. that is the only way to say it. and you just wait - we are already planning for the summer show.

i also managed to snag a couple of the maya roadie stickers before we gave them all away and coupled with some of the finest crushed velvet in my hands - so i feel a RAK coming on! let me empty all of my suitcases first and get a couple more naps in and be sure to check back for a RAK.

oh yeah if you want to see the 93 products we did release at this show, check it out here:
http://www.mayaroad.com/newsletter/2007CHAWCatalog.htm and things start shipping at the end of feb.

i do have more comments about the industry (good and bad) but i will save those for another day. for now, i just want to say thank you for supporting the MR family. it means so much to us.

Congratulations! I am so happy for you both on another successful show. Your booth makes my heart beats fast. I would not be good person for these shows. Because as you know I am not good with "celebrities" I would most likely faint LOL

Congrats again ladies. You rock!
