Whew, our first show in almost a year! To my surprise everything went so well. I think I forgot how much I missed doing shows until I am thrown back into them.
I flew out to Arizona for the Mesa Family History Expo in Mesa, AZ. To my surprise there were less vendors than last years shows, but there was no shortage of people. I think my favorite part of doing Expo’s is meeting all the new people and showing them how exciting and amazing digital scrapbooking is. I don’t think a lot of people know how cost efficient digital scrapbooking is over traditional scrapbooking ( if you want to find out how it saves you money, email me: firstname.lastname@example.org). Every show new people come to our booth and wonder what digital scrapbooking is. After talking to them and figuring out what they want and what they are looking for I am able to get them really excited about jumping into the world of digital scrapbooking. There were a lot of people who asked questions first and came back the second day with the decision to invest in digital scrapbooking. Over selling our graphics, the most important thing to me is to see how excited a person gets over digital scrapbooking. I love people getting into the digi world and starting to see how amazing and fun it is. They then see how and why I do what I do and am so passionate about sharing it with everyone.
Back to the show, lol. Everything, like I said before, went so well. I met a lot of new people and made some new friends and saw some old faces from the show last year. I had several people so excited about digital scrapbooking that they are blogging about our company. Isn’t that so cool?! I am hoping to see a lot of them on the message board to share their new layouts and ask lots of questions. We visited with our friends from Heritage Collectors, Marlo and his wife, and got the latest on their products and vice versa. I caught myself taking breaks while everyone was in classes to go out and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. Utah, as most of us know, is not the warmest in January so I soaked up as much of the sunshine and warmth as I could.
I can’t wait for the Roots Tech Expo at the Salt Palace Convention Center in two weeks. I hope some of you can make it out to come and visit me and check out our new products. This show is MASSIVE and contains over 150 vendors from all over the country. Last year was their first year doing the expo and I am very proud to be a part of it again. We were very successful at the last show and I am crossing my fingers that this show will go even better. Check the blog in a few weeks to get a review of the Roots Tech show. This time I will not forget my camera so I can show everyone how much fun it is!!
