Excited is not a strong enough word...

Well, at the very end of my CKC experience, I saw Wendy Smedley, creative editor of Simple Scrapbooks. I brought The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker, as I knew she was scheduled to be in St. Louis, but I did not know if I would see her for an autograph. I passed her in the lobby, and, well, let's just say it wasn't one of my best verbal responses. But she was so gracious and understanding that my tongue was twisted around my head! She said Aby Garvey, the co-author of the book, would be at her class at 3:10, which was right next door to the SEI class I was taking. She suggested I stop by with the book.
I did so. The two of them were so kind to sign my book and get a picture taken with me (love the glasses, eh? I was so wiped out by then!). Wendy asked if I would send her a picture of my craft room, after I gushed about how helpful the book was. Well, needless to say, right now there will be no photographs, as it looks like a craft store exploded in here. However, after I sift through the mess of CKC purchases, I will, most definitely, send her a picture. SOOOOO cool.
