It was P-E-R-F-E-C-T !!!!!!!!!

My weekend in Chicago
at the Country Living Magazine's Women's Entrepreneurial Event was

A M A Z I N G...

I met so many creative women that my head is still spinning.

We networked with women from all over the country,
each one with a great product & story,
and listened to highly successful women entrepreneurs tell their stories.
The speakers and other panelists, experts in PR, TV, and business, shared so much helpful information. It was truly inspirational.

And of course, the most fun for me was showing my glittery goodness to all.

The Country Living Magazine editors & judges
were incredibly charming, accessible and kind.

Now I KNOW why the magazine is soooo wonderful...

Chicago is positively gorgeous...wide, clean streets, flowers like you've never seen outside all buildings and stores,
those legendary, mind-boggling skyscrapers...

and the people are so darned friendly!
I cannot wait to go back...

Well...almost everything was perfect...

My suitcase looked like it tangled with a lawnmower!
(I think they must have used an entire roll of tape.)
The ornaments got a bit roughed up, but nothing was damaged.
The good news is that this happened on the way home! Whew!
Fortunately on the way OUT to the event, I had enough sense to hand carry my precious glitterbabies on the plane
so there was no chance of losing them.

I'll be savoring every moment of this wonderful event for a very long time...

Thank you Country Living Magazine!
