We are now suffering from effects of the trade show. I think it happens to everyone in trade shows around the world. One day melds into another and you slowly lose your mind. I long to be outside. It is hard to stay in a 20×20 booth and keep your sanity, but the thing that makes it all worthwhile are the visits from friends in the scrapbook market and time with our customers who we love & appreciate. This year the economy seems to be on everyone’s minds, whether their business is in the US or overseas. We are more tired today then we were yesterday. This show is 1/2 day too long… it should have been over today. We had an emergency evacuation in the morning. Everyone left, I stayed and cut paper.
