Well I had my hopes up that this would be the year I finally make it to the Licensing International Expo held in Vegas in June. Normally it was held in NYC. This year in an effort to reduce the cost to exhibitors they changed the venue and went to Vegas which they said reduced the pricing by 60%. Even with that reduction the cost is still an incredible $4,600. WAY too pricey when you add in the cost of flight, hotel and food when I'm flying from the east. I'm bummed. I have been designing like crazy lately and some of the stuff would be so perfect for journals, cards, or fabric. Here is a little peek at one of the many new designs I've been creating lately….and if anyone is interested in licensing…let me know.
