I know, I know – I have already heard from a few “out-of-towners” who think I’m being terribly cruel by posting all of the cool things we’ll be doing in our store during the Stamping Gala August 9-15 (the best one was “I just shorted out my laptop while looking at these pics”). I can offer two responses:
1. I get the same feedback from the locals when I post cool things we do at conventions.
2. I’m giving you a month’s notice – can you think of anything better in the summer than a trip to lovely Dayton, Ohio? And if you have to rely on a male driver, send him to the U.S. Air Force Museum after he drops you off (it’s only 15 minutes away, it’s free, and it’ll keep him occupied for hours).
That said, brace yourself for classes, demos, and free make it/take its from some of our favorite fellow vendors and instructors. Here are the highlights of Day Two – Tuesday, August 10:
