Kristi and I had a wonderful time at the annual Product Sign Supply Nor-Cal
Thank you Betty, Kay, Ray, Bunny, Dave, and all of the staff at PSS for all of
the hard work putting together a quality show featuring a multitude of talent/vendors.
The Crowd wasnt as large as years past, which provided ample opportunity for all
Letterheads to get a hands on experience to remember for a lifetime.
I wish I could of had time to visit with everyone, seems theres just never enough
time at a letterhead. If I leave anyone out, its only because I've sponged up as much as I
possibly could, and I'm pretty warn out this morning from a great weekend.
I have to offer forward a big Thank You! to Rick "Awesome" Glawson for having
me as a assistant during his Glass Gilding demo, I flat out love gilding, and working with
a craftsman of Rick's Caliber is truly a most rewarding experience.
Lola Grey, aka GoldenMom, of Esoteric Sign Supply also came to show some of the finest
Lettering/gilding products available inthe world, Lola has over all others, made Kristi
and I feel like part of this family we call Letterheads.
Kent and Judi Smith of Smith Sign Studio Greeley, Colorado came out to educate the
masses. Kent and Judy are great, they're both Encyclopedias of knowledge, and now
theyve really given Kristi and I the Ole Letterhead Bug. I wish I could of
broke away more often to spend more time visiting. We anxiously look forward to our next
opportunity to meet!
Kristi and Nancy Blohm spent alot of time together visiting, thank you Nancy for the
encouragement, Kristi really enjoyed your company
