Well I'm finally home....
What a whirlwind week! Convention was awesome, yet again. I'm always so energized and have so many great ideas for my business after attending the CTMH functions.
Christine and I had a blast rooming together and teaching together at Extravaganza. Thank you to all the people who took our class! I also loved, loved, loved hanging out with old and new friends that I only get to see at these events. Thank you for all the laughs ladies!
Of course this year was incredibly special because the album I made about Evan took first place in the Artwork Contest!!!! YAY!!!! And, the lovely convention goers voted my album as the Consultant's Choice as well! It was such a blessing to get to share my story, and so overwhelming to win. I got to meet with Jeanette (CTMH CEO and founder) and talk with her and have my photo with her. (Once they email it to me I'll post it).
So many people came up to me and shared their adoption stories - both good and bad. Two of the more special stories I heard actually came from birth moms. I have so much respect and awe for these women. They are brave, compassionate, and incredibly strong for making the choice that they did. I hope they know how much I appreciate them for taking the time to share their stories with me.
I'll begin posting Evan's book page by page today. I took over 70 pictures of the album before mailing it in to corp - so it's not something I can sit down and post all at once. And once that's up, I'll start posting the artwork from our Extravaganza class as well.
Thanks for reading!
