I'm starting to ship items for ScrapFest. For those of you attending, I'd love to hear what you'd like to see us bring more of - papers or stamps? Which ones, etc? I'm also wondering about stores in the area - would love to drop by and chat with them and hopefully get our line in their stores if they see there is a demand. Thanks in advance for this info!
And speaking about trips, my family is now planning a trip to Asia in April 2007 - to celebrate my grandmother's 100th birthday. Actually it's her 99th, but in (older) Chinese culture you are 1 when you are born. Yeah, confusing. I just got that wrapped around my head a few years ago. All our families from all over the globe will be converging on the family home and there's lots of grand plans and such going on. Looking forward to seeing everyone and showing my kids my roots.
We're hoping to also meet with some factories to see if it's a good idea to start manufacturing things like embellishments and all. It's a new area for me, and I'm not sure if we will go that route, but I want to explore and research it anyway. I'm thinking while I am there I will perhaps teach at a couple stores in Malaysia and Singapore, and then head over to Australia/NZ. If any stores are interested, please email me. Thanks!
