Wow, what a busy few weeks it has been for me! As you already know I’ve recently been in America for the CHA show in Rosemont, Chicago but I wanted to fill you in with what I have been up to.
We flew in to the US a day early and we spent it as a chill day! Leann and myself decided to relax on the beach while the guys chose to go to a baseball match instead!
We had a lovely meal out with the nice people from Sizzix, including a typical desert in the US – it was absolutely massive!! It was so big that even the 4 of us together could only get through half of it! Look at this photo and see what I mean…
There was a treat for everyone on the opening day of the show – to open the show they had the Chicago police department bagpipers walk around with the board members. This is usually the only chance I get to see the show floor because we’re so busy on stand the rest of the time.
I was also very honoured as I was asked to officially open the show…so here I am cutting the ribbon, along with Mark Peters (vice-chair of the board) and some lucky members chosen from the crowd…
We entered our Envelobox Creator into the Innovations Awards, so I had to give a talk about it (only 30 seconds).
We won the award and got to go to the lovely awards ceremony on the last evening of the show.
