2015 One Of A Kind Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Show in Madison WI

This is where I was this past weekend - One Of A Kind Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Show in Madison, WI AND right before Bella, a huge snow storm (our first snow fall of the season). It came in fast and furious (Friday night through Saturday mid-afternoon, dumping between 4" to 14"). Madison accumulated about 4". Schaumburg IL (home) had 6" but other areas got up to 14" - not fun.

I hitched a ride with my favorite LSS (Local Scrapbook Store), Craft Fancy (they were vending at the show). 6 am on Friday morning we headed off. To "earn" my ride, I helped set up the booth a little while making a mental shopping list - LOL!! Look how nice the booth turned out - beautiful!

After helping, I went off to say hello to Greg Smallwood and my "home" booth, Marco's Paper, for the weekend. Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® asked me to show off their products to his customers. Who can say no to sharing my addiction...er, love of their stuff?! LOL!

After checking into my hotel which was connected to the hall, I came back onto the floor to get ready for the Make'n Take Market. From 6 pm to 10 pm, vendors had a table at their booth for customers come in and create a project. They had four hours to create as many projects as they can or get a head's start on shopping. Here are some of my new friends creating my project...

My table was busy. Then it was quiet for five minutes - perfect time to clean. When I looked up, I see five happy faces ready to go and they were my last group as time was called! Boy, 10 pm went by fast! LOL! This was what they made...

Guess who was at the show?! None other than the talented Wendy Vecchi! She was demonstrating at the Stamper's Anonymous Booth. I was excited to see this booth...no stamp shows in the Chicago area so I never seen their booth - only images. So I got to see it up close and live! LOVE!! Thanks for taking a picture with me, Wendy!

Special thanks to Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® for sponsoring me, Greg Smallwood of Marco's Paper for being such a wonderful host, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® for providing the adhesives for both Make'n Take and demos, and Craft Fancy for putting up with me! LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by!
