They want me to send my project and some promotional fliers, but it sounds like they'd also be receptive to me attending the show and possibly doing a demo. Woo-hoo!
It would probably be expensive for me to get out there, but I'm thinking that there's no way I CAN'T go. I mean, what an amazing opportunity.
Last year's show had more than 16,000 attendees. I could rub elbows with all of the crafty celebrities I love. I could take some of the fabulous workshops being offered by the top names in the craft world. I could also network with reps from various craft companies and publishing companies. Heck, I've been talking about writing a craft book for a few years now--what better way to pitch my ideas than in person?
I need to call my friends who live in L.A. and see if their offer to stay with them any time still holds. I need to check flights on Southwest and the other airlines to see how much airfare will set me back. I also need to call my best friend from Oregon who, in an ironic twist, had arranged to see me in Florida at the tail end of a cruise she's taking that same week. So much to do!
Oh, and did I mention that I need to recreate the clock? I already sold the one that's pictured. Oops.
Well, time to stop blogging and get busy on all these things I need to do. Whew!
