Details please. Its 5:30 pm. Certainly someone has time to post something for those of us who could not attend!!!

Its hotter than blazes here. 93 I think outside. Charlie has been mowing all day long. I have been cleaning inside part of the day in between running Nicholas back and forth to his last soccer game in the 93 degree heat.

Grad party is tomorrow at noon. I am almost ready.

I had soooo much fun!!! Got a ridiculous amount of stuff --- lots of unmounted rubber, some new IO cling backgrounds, new Bug embossing folders, mica paints, and more.

It was fun meeting everyone -- we met up a few times through the day, and we had lunch together. Everyone is so nice!

And FYI to everyone, Lori is a pain in the tush to drive with. She complains the whole way and yells at my GPS. KIDDING! :) Well, she does yell at my GPS, but so do I. :)

What a great first experience with the Shackies!!!

That's cause GPS units are stupid for the most part. We've borrowed other peoples a few times and they have a mind of their own. Give me a map!

And yes, visiting with other Shackies is da bomb! And a rubber show to boot!!

Yes!
This was an awesome day meeting up with Shackie friends, new and old.
I, too, spent a boatload of dough!
I haven't even looked at it all again...so it will be like Christmas when I do look it all over.
It was a tiring day and I'll be hitting the sack very soon now!
So....'til tomorrow, Shackies.
Sweet dreams!

We had a blast! Bought TONS of stuff, ate TONS of good food, and laughed our butts off! Joanie had her own cheering section at longhorn! She was so good - she stuck to her diet, and the waitstaff came by our table and did a cheer for her! We are all pooped out from a fun, busy day. Shackies are the most fun!!!!

HA!
That was just so funny!
It almost made skipping bites of the awesome chocolate mousse cake, choc. sauce, vanilla ice cream and whipped cream concoction everyone else shared a wonderful thing!
sigh.

We did have such a blast!! We met lots of shackies--I think there were 10 of us all together. Joanie made great name badges--beautiful. Lots of people commented on them and some people thought we were vendors. It was a great show. Little things were different--the tables and benches were moved from the food counter area to over near the door. No big deal. I did notice that the make & takes were not free any more. The ones I saw were $1 or $2. I think all the vendors did very well. Of course Joanie and Lnesa and I had to stop into the Michael's near the convention center and shop there too!!! Can you say addiction?????

Here's my loot. I got 10 distress pads and a blender, some Rubbernecker stamps. I didn't take a picture but got some black paper from Marco's and a Cut and Dry ink pad sheet. I just made the tag. My first one. Addicted now! Oops looks like I exceed limits if I attach both at once so here is first one.....

I wish i knew how to get the pictures onto the pc. I was being very good until I went the second day. At Sparkles and Sprinkles I totally lost it. I bought 6 sets (buy 5 get one free). also a couple of single stamps. I also (during the 2 days) bought more copics, a memonto pad and reinker, package of prima leaves, dove blender refill, 2 spritzers, frosty and sparkly, about 1/2 dozen cuttlebug folders, a victorian lady's face, several st. Patrick's day ums, 2 packages of clear small gift boxes from DeNami. From Magenta I bought a package of 6x6 paper with directions to make folded flowers, a little chipboard, some metalic trims. And, I ordered a stamp set of quotes from the teaparty in Alice in Wonderland. I probably forgot a bunch of stuff but you get the idea. :laugh: I did come home with $$ but this afternoon I went to my gs' baseball game and bought them snacks there. Now I'm broke.:confused:

At the moment, I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed by all the stuff I got.
I need to mount my unmounted rubber....guess I could start there???
I received my order of Ippity stamps last week.
I received my order of Precious Innocence stamps this week.
I went on a purchasing overload over the weekend.....WHERE do I begin?
LOL

I hear what your saying Joanie! I got the stamps I bought from Charity, plus some I won on ebay, and then there is all the stuff I bought on saturday! It was an overwhelming pile! I sorted all my stamps, won't put them away until I use them. Tried out my Tim Holtz embossing folders. And the Tim Holtz dies I bought. I put away the ink and EP, and Smooch Ink that I bought. I even stamped bits and peices last night. No finished products, but I put ink to rubber! I use naked rubber, so having to mount for me! But I did trim a bunch last night!

I bought the new electric Distrezzer, embossing folders, some Nesties, some ink pads, paper, some Stickle holders, some glitter, etc etc. This is from memory as I have not put any of my stuff away yet. There is a BIG pile waiting to be organized. lol. Maybe tomorrow? Life is good!!
