Hello from Chicago

Hey everyone! I've just got settled in my hotel room here in Chicago where I'm over visiting for the Craft and Hobby Association Summer Trade show.

We (being myself and my good husband Simon) flew out this morning from Newcastle, connecting through Amsterdam. We were on one of the big 747's but as you can see, the weather was terrible in Amsterdam when we took off!


We're staying at the hotel directly opposite the convention centre, so it will be handy for the show. When we checked in this afternoon Simon and Gary (our US Sales Manager) found a nifty device in reception which has the weather forecast for the coming week...


My god it's going to be hot! (too hot for us to manage!)


So we nipped out for a quick bite to eat and went by he convention centre - I called in to say hi to all the CHA staff!


Then we had a quick bite to eat, followed by the most ridiculously sized desert!


Anyway, I'm absolutely shattered now, so am going to have a couple of hours kip before the rest of our staff get in this evening. Tomorrow is a big day - we're teaching classes with our Spectrum Noir pens (2 classes, both are totally sold out with waiting lists!) and of course we're setting up the booth. I'll take some pics and share with you tomorrow when I get chance!

Until then! Sara xxx
