I am smitten with this town. I am in love with the small town feel of this special place. I am in Antioch, IL teaching at Hannah's Home Accents. It is a 30,000 square foot mega scrapbook, craft and speciality store and more. Yes, they carry ALL my TCD products. They have the BEST selection and I shopped and even bought some cool things for my workshops at the upcoming Caribbean cruise.
This is Dana (far left) and two her store employees. They are both 19 years old and helped me so much. I can honestly say they went above and beyond. Dana picked me up in Wisconsin and we drove to the store. I immediately LOVED her and knew we were instant friends. She had everything so organized and we set up for the workshops (thank you girls for the help) and she had all my brand new collections. Everyone was so excited and filled their carts with my product. It was selling out FAST. Dana had to contact Brian (my sales director) and place an order on the spot. I loved seeing everyone so excited to get my new lines. It just makes me feel like I am doing something right- THANK YOU!!!!!!! MORE TCD will be in on FRIDAY if you want to visit the store.
The class was so full I had to go so far back to try to fit everyone in the photo. Everyone welcomed me and I enjoyed talking to each of the girls. I got to see so many familiar faces. Yes, many of the Scrapfest girls who scared me last year. ha! There were girls who drove several hours to be here. I have to say, this store is definitely WORTH the drive and visit.
Dana asked me on the spot if I would come again in 2014. So I was more than happy to say YES! More tomorrow....
Dana and her girlfriends who truly inspired me by sharing with me... yes, they reminded me that we are leaving a legacy.
It's late... 12:40 am here and I need to sleep so I can teach two more workshops this morning.
