The show was a success for us, even with the sweltering heat outside that possibly deterred some people from going to the show. We sold tons of Dollar Dreadfuls - selling out of a couple of our titles, (as well as my Knit Wits ashcan which I didn't really expect!) I didn't get a chance to look around the show as much as I would have liked - the days literally flew by for me, but I did do a couple quick passes of the floor and bought a couple things which entertained me on the long plane ride home.
Overall, it was a wonderful show (as always) and we've already signed up to be back next year!
In other news, this weekend I'll be participating in the Tour de Cure, which is a 34 mile bike ride for the American Diabetes Association. I've never ridden that far before, (and I'll be riding a fixed gear bike!) so it will be a challenge. But I have been training very hard these past couple months, so I feel confident I can do it! I've already raised 700 dollars - and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated so far. Your support means so much to me.
A couple of my family members, including my brother, suffer from diabetes so it is a cause that is near and dear to me. I want to raise as much as I possibly can in the hopes of one day finding a cure for this disease!
So, please, if you can spare even just $5, I would truly appreciate it! You can sponsor me online at my PERSONAL SITE. Thank you!!
