Teeth Tradeshows Jetlag and Workshops


Hi everyone

Well what a couple of weeks weve had here at Once Upon A Stamp.
Firstly i have to appologise for not blogging but i have been in quite a bit of pain with all the dental work i have had to have done over the last couple of months and have not been fit for doing anything especially in the last few weeks.

Anyway all the work on my mouth was finished two days before we went to Chicago for the Craft Trade Show and i think Gordon was happy as my mouth was that sore i couldnt talk much so he had to do all the ordering.
We had a great time and have found some fab new products so keep watching the web shop.

We have still got some places left on some of our August Workshops and here they are.

Both of Karens classes for the first of this series of Rubber Stamping techniques for beginners filled up really quickly and i can see this one going fast too.
Karen will be taking you step by step into the world of Rubber Stamping special effects and you will be amazed at the cards you will be making.
This is not just a workshop for beginners as even more advanced stampers will find this class really useful.


I thought i would put a couple of photoes up of Chicago as we both thought it was probably the most beautiful city we have been to in America. The architecture is amazing as the old and new buildings all seem to merge wonderfully with each other There is so much to see and do and it also seemed a very safe city and we didnt feel threatened once even walking around after dark. We will most definately be back


The first day we woke at 7.30 in the morning after sleeping for 12 hours (it was only supposed to be an hours nap ).We did a twelve mile walk of the city and then went to the Aquarium which was fantastic.Here we are half way round it taking a breather.



This is Downtown Chicago and as you can see for a city it really is beautiful. The large boat in the background takes you on an architecture and history tour of the city and we just didnt have time to do it this time but its on our list for next time.

Below is a little video
i took of Navy Pier from the water taxi we were on
I thought this would be a good time to try out putting a video onto our blog.

Smiles Rob, Gordon and Harry.
