I don’t usually post on Tuesdays but just had to share this… This past weekend we were in Westminster, MD for the StampScrapArtTour show. As always it was nice to see so many of the familiar faces that turn out to support us year after year. And this trip was even more fun thanks to a visit from a couple of very special visitors.

On Saturday, Repeat Rock Star, Dawn Bennett stopped by for a visit and brought us a big stack of awesome cards to add to our display boards. I had the pleasure of meeting Dawn back in the the spring when she first joined our team, but it was so nice to get to chat with her again.

Sunday’s at the shows are usually much quieter and last weekend was no exception. I was bored and hanging out at my demo table when someone handed me a stack of cards and said… ” I thought I’d deliver these in person.” Well let me tell you, I had to do a double take. Repeat Rock Star, Robin Kirkpatrick, totally surprised me with a visit! Since Robin lives in Atlanta, I was completely floored to see her standing in front of me in Westminster, MD. What a fabulous end to my weekend! It was so wonderful to officially meet Robin in person and we had a great visit.

Today I’m back in the office and looking forward to perhaps adding another chapter to this week’s Rock Star get togethers. Rumor has it that Joy Hadden is vacationing here in Maine and may stop by for a quick reunion. I can’t wait! 😀

Hope to “see” the rest of you here again on Wednesday!

Surprise! I don’t usually post on Thursdays but I had to share… We just got back to the office yesterday after a week on the road. Our first stamp show of the year was with StampScrapArtTour in Mesquite, TX. And let me tell you… it is one looong drive from Maine to Texas and back! I’m still pooped!!

Although the show was a little slower than years past, we did have a wonderful time visiting with all our Texas stamping friends again. :-) And the highlight of our weekend was spending time with two of Repeat’s Rock Stars. Joy Hadden spent Saturday and Sunday helping us out in the booth and on Sunday we got to meet Makiko Jones for the first time. It was such a great pleasure getting to know these talented members of our design team in person!

From a vendor’s standpoint rubber stamp conventions are a lot of work, but the friendships that are forged there are my favorite part. :)

Happy Thursday to you and have a great weekend! I’ll be busy here catching up on orders and reviewing the submissions from our Design Team Call. If you’d like to be considered for a Rock Star position it’s still not too late. Applications are being accepted until tomorrow so don’t delay! Follow this link to my Design Team Call for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by today…

It’s been an extra busy week for Repeat Impressions! Last weekend we were in Westminster, MD for a stamp convention and today we’re setting up for another show in Rhinebeck, NY. In between time we spent two days at home catching up on orders, took a quick show inventory, and restocked what we could before packing it all up again to hit the road. Whew!

There were a few bright spots in our week though… At the Westminster show, RI Rock Star, Julie Smith paid us a visit. Fortunately she stopped by on Sunday when the show was a little slow so we had a chance to have a nice chat. It was great to get to meet Julie and she even brought us some cards she created to add to our display boards. :-)

On Wednesday while we were home repacking for the next show I got a call from RI Rock Star, Joy Hadden. Joy came all the way from Texas to vacation in Maine and enjoy our fall weather. We were just so glad that we were at home on the one day she would be passing through our area. It was a real pleasure getting to meet Joy… what a sweet lady! :-) I only wished we could have spent a little more time visiting but we were both pressed for time. I was busy getting ready for the show and Joy had a dinner date with a lobster! I was so jealous. I live in Maine and I haven’t had a lobster yet this year. Can you guess what I’ll be doing when I get back from NY?!

Thanks for stopping by today. If you are in the Rhinebeck, NY area this weekend I hope you will come by and visit us at the StampScrapArtTour show.

Have a great weekend!

Last weekend at this time we were in Florida for the StampFest convention. The Orlando show is always a good time but this year it was extra special! My 9 year old niece, Adriana, came along for the trip. :-) She helped me teach at the Make & Take on Friday night and assisted us in the Repeat Impressions booth too.

And, we also had a nice surprise awaiting us on Saturday morning… Repeat’s Rock Star, Ayana Posadas, was in the house! Ayana was there attending her very first stamp convention and helping out in the DeNami booth. After corresponding via email for several months it was wonderful to get to meet her. I already knew that Ayana was a real sweetie but she’s even more adorable in person!

It was great to see all our Florida stamping friends again, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that it was really nice to be back in Maine and away from all that heat and humidity too. This northern girl doesn’t function too well in the icky stickies! So this weekend I’m back in the office getting in a cool frame of mind and working on some new holiday stamp designs. Yay!!

However you’re spending your weekend I hope it’s wonderful. :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
