TBAI Has Come and Gone


Alas, it is true.  It really was a fabulous show and just SO much fun.  I'm already looking forward to attending next year! 

I'm very thankful that dear Darlene Allen came to my rescue when I didn't even know that I needed rescuing.  While I was setting up my table, I was getting more and more anxious and stressed.  Right at that time, Darlene came up, put her arm around me, and gave me a gentle pep talk.  It was just what I needed exactly when I needed it.  I can't thank her enough.  She helped me to put things back into perspective and relax--exactly what my body needed.


In the end, I was quite pleased with how my show table turned out and I couldn't be happier with how the whole show transpired.




Here's my gallery piece for the show, Benedict and his Illuminated Manuscript.  Matt did a fabulous job on the writing desk--don't you agree?!
  

The whole room just sparkled with amazing bears on the day of the show.  It really was spectacular.


I also meet up with many friends including Ginger Brame and Michele Seraphim and, of course, the famous Sebastian (if you don't know about Sebastian you really must visit Ginger's blog--just click on her name above).




Just look at all those buckaneers!  How are they going to top that next year?!!


And I can't forget our "field trip" to the Bundy House Museumin Binghamton. It really had some spectacular architectural details.




Unfortunately, I didn't get to take photos of all the tables and people at TBAI that I had wanted to show you. I was just plain too busy. And then, when things finally did slow down for me, my legs decided it was time to go on strike. Thankfully they waited until there was only one hour left.  Now I just have to be patient until they decide to start work properly again.  They did hint to me today that they are considering cooperating in the near future, but they just haven't committed to it yet. (sigh)
 
Heaps of Hugs,

  5. Hi Cheryl, It looks like such a wonderful show. I hope to come and display there someday. Philadelphia is in May, I know your girls are still in school, but it is certainly an educational place to visit. I would so love to meet you and your bears there. I love the one dressed in red, what a sweetheart.
