Atlanta Show

Well, it's been awhile but I have lots of great excuses......
The holidays, travel, work, the flu and the Atlanta show all kept getting in the way.

The Atlanta show was pretty great this year; met lots of new, fun and inspiring people. Robin Davis and I hosted our twice yearly Artist Meet and Greet at my place and quite a few adventurous souls braved the ice and snow and walked over from the mart. It was a great evening and I'm already looking forward to July.

Jamey Berger, Robin Davis, Dan DiPaolo and me.

The rest of the week was filled with meetings, popping into showrooms to see new lines and say hi to friends and taking Robin's photo with her new product lines.

Seeing creative people I admire expand and grow their lines, companies and fabulous selves makes me happy.

Curly Girl Design had their very own new beautiful showroom (congratulations Leigh) just around the corner from Demdaco where she also has a line.

The cute and comfy inside.

The combination of creative display and fantastic product lines made the Demdaco Showroom a real stand-out. I finally met Kelly Rae Roberts and Lisa Kaus and ran into my long time pal Lori Siebert who was doing a signing.

Love this Carole Eldridge display

Tascha Parkinson's sweet ornaments.

and of course, Kelly Rae Roberts

Thanks to Anne McFarland Brown for letting me use her photos of the Demdaco Showroom. I couldn't find my camera.....it was in my purse the whole time.........

Well that's it for now-I'll try and be more diligent with the blogging but I'm making no promises!


  1. Thanks for capturing, Paula. It was a great experience for this "first timer." You are an excellent hostess!

  2. Wonderful photos Paula - very inspiring - wish I could have tagged along with you.
