It already seems like ages since Surtex, and yet, where is my recap??? Well, in addition to the busyness of the season, we have a small baby, soooooo….. I get a pass, right? 😉

Well, I am happy to report that even though I am behind in getting a Surtex recap posted, Cathy Heck is ON THE BALL. She posted three great recaps of Surtex (recap 1, recap 2, recap 3). Her last post, Trends and Friends, features our own little love. You can see our baby at the end of her third post, here. Below are a couple of her heartwarming illustrations.

In Cathy’s photo, Baby is in the arms of my dear friend, Anne. Anne is notoriously baby crazy, and quite likely to de-sock a small infant at any moment. Who can blame her? Baby toes are so cute!!!

Below is a cute photo of my husband (without whom I would not have my fabulous booth) and our infant son. They were a great team. My husband took such good care of Baby that he didn’t cry at all during the show. Baby wooed passersby with his big smile. I can’t say that I would recommend bringing a tiny baby to a trade show, but if you HAVE TO, then I sure hope you have a baby as easy as ours is!

We were lucky that our booth was near many other wonderful artists: Josephine Kimberling, Ana Victoria Calderon, Kelly Ventura, and Sarah Ehlinger of Very Sarie.

We also got to talk a bit with the amazing Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom fame, and her husband. They are so nice, and generous, and helpful!

Work by all of these artists is shown below. Behold the beauty!!!
