I had a busy two weekends in a row at Texas vendor shows the last two weekends of January.  It’s always great to see all the familiar faces at these shows.  Since I’ve been doing these shows for at least a decade, I generally see the same ladies every year with a few new faces too.  The first one was the Stamp Scrap Art Tour in Mesquite which started with a 50 person make’n’take class Friday night.

Then, the show was most of the day Saturday and Sunday.

The very next weekend was the Just Crop, Shop, & Create event in Grapevine.  This one is twice a year, so I’ll be back there July 7th & 8th with more newly retired products and great new kits.  I did a make’n’take right at my side table for two at a time which was nice and easy compared to the fun but faster pace in Mesquite (rotation of ten customers every 20 minutes with five other vendors).

I really enjoy meeting everyone at these shows and can’t wait for the next one.  My Open House in May (5th & 6th) will be the next time I have a set up like this.  But, that will be in my own house and stamp studio.  So, at least I won’t have to load the truck with all my totes and tables…lol.

Happy Stampin’
