We had a great weekend in the Bellevue, WA at the Creating Keepsakes Show. It was nice being home and seeing familiar faces and introducing stamping to scrapbookers. I love the thrill of showing our stamping techniques and seeing the creativity and imagination blossom as they get excited. Their eyes light up and they are so expressive. I love it!
I met with some long time stampers, some even came from Portland, OR and Vacouver, BC, Canada. I also met a couple of friend's for friends. How fun that was. One of our dear store owners came from Hawaii! I bet it is beautiful there. Also, one of our loyal customers came a long way to visit us, with cookies and chocolate. (Thanks Candi!) Gary was especially enjoying the treats. Come to think of it, those chocolates never made it home.
We are winding down the year, but are fast at work getting the new Spring/Summer line ready for the new year. I was able to use some of your wish list submissions. So stay tuned and see... I have normally worked behind the eight ball by designing right up to the last possible moment. My organized assistant, namely my daughter, suggested I continue to let the creative juices run and design for next year's Christmas. What a concept! Imagine designing Christmas around the winter. I must say that it is hard to get inspired for Christmas during summer.
We are also working on updating our shopping cart. For those of you on our email list, DeNami InTouch, we wanted to offer coupons for purchases. Also, for those who visit us at the shows, we want to offer coupons for you to visit our website. It's coming soon. We are strong at graphics and design, but a bit lacking in shopping cart/computer language. We can't wait for it to go live. I may give an update as I have it. In the meantime, we will continue to update our current website with the latest in DeNami products.
Thanks to those who have commented on this blog and for those who identified yourselves at the shows as blog readers. We are excited to further expand the blog possibilites. I'm thinking video tutorials... Cool, huh?
Here is Roxanne from Stamps and Memories from Hawaii. http://stampsandmemories.com/
If you visit the store, tell her that she was mentioned on DeNami's Blog. She is a real sweetheart with a desire to help her customers. You will be well taken care of when you step in her store. Hawaii sounds good right about now.
Here is Elaine. She is a friend of our longtime friend. We had loads of fun chatting together and laughing. I found out she has a blog herself http://aplaceforink.blogspot.com/ Send her a comment telling her you saw her on this blog. We bloggers get a kick knowing that there is a cosmic blog web that link all of us together.
Below are some projects that I have archived and set aside to share.
Email me or post a link to your cute DeNami projects. Who knows, you might see it here.
