Hip Hip Hoorayyyyyyyy

Well...whew the show is over and as much fun as I had at the show, I am so grateful that it is over.

I was overwhelmed (on many occasions) to have all the support from my incredible friends. There wasn't a time during the day when I would look up and not know at least 3 people in the room. I love you all and so appreciate you. It was a bittersweet day for me, for those who do not know my little family is moving to Alaska in a few weeks so most of the people there I might not see for awhile. Not to mention, I moved earlier this year so a lot of the people who came I hadn't seen for some time. I had several...Oh, my gosh it's been so long...and Oh, my gosh it's going to be so long...moments. Needless to say, I was crying a lot.

I haven't decided when I will do another show yet, I think I need some downtime to decompress from it all. I would be curious to know if any of the vendors would like to do it again (I did have several say already that they would). I would also be curious to know if the customers would like us to do it again too.

I don't think I would have it in Burbank though...tax was 9.75%! What a joke! The permit stuff was crappy and overall it was just way too expensive. Not to mention we weren't allowed to have signs and so if you didn't have a personal invitation there wasn't really much more we could do to increase the traffic. The cost of it all wasn't even covered by the entry fee or the profits.

I do think I will do another show in another city where it won't be so costly...time and place TBD

Beth was the lucky winner of the last giveaway, way to go Beth!
