First, Let me apologize for the disappearing act! I am now a working girl… again, and it has taken up much of my time.
November 9th and 10th 2013 were the dates of this years The Original Rubber Stamp Convention, held in Carson California.
I have been to state fairs and craft fairs but never a stamp convention!! Thank goodness my boyfriend went with me to keep me from spending every dime I have. It was awesome! There were wonderful booths and exhibits and classes going on everywhere. It am constantly amazed at the creativity people have. There were some great ideas.
I did purchase a few things..
Anyone that knows me or my other blog (An Indie Advisory) you know that I love mushrooms. I found this mushroom stamp and some other fun stamps

I am totally in LOVE with the Tim Holtz brand and all the people he works with including Stamper’s Anonymous.
Stamper’s Anonymous had a booth, I have been drooling over their products for years. Mario Rossi was even at the booth. I kept telling myself that if I saw him I would say Hello, because I am a huge fan and follow his blogs and such. Here is hs twitter link : https://twitter.com/mariojrossi. Well, I saw him and got all fan stupid and ran away. I get a bit shy. So now I am kicking myself. I do that stuff all the time. I get around people I totally admire, get the “I am not worthy complex” and run away, ha I am a nerd!
Anyway, I am kind of well poor, so I do not often purchase craft supplies, I usually have to make my own. I finally broke down and bought some of the dylusions ink spray. This stuff is AWESOME!!!! It is so much fun, and the colors are beautiful and vibrant, I wish I could have bought every single color (which I might have done if my boyfriend was not there LOL). If you have never seen this stuff, I would highly recommend it.
Stamper’s Anonymous info:
I absolutely had a blast, and cannot wait until I have a real chance to play with all my new loot.
Here is some information on the vendors that were at the convention and some info for some upcoming conventions.
There are stamp conventions and stuff all over the country so if you are not in California I would suggest looking online for stamp conventions near you, it is so much fun.
See you soon!
