Wish I could attend them all! What a great idea at this time of year once the hoidays have passed.

Thinking about hosting in SoCal/San Diego - guess I had better do some planning if it is going to happen.

Kerrie La Guardia I'm not quite sure what is going on.  1) I originally filled out the form, 2) I wrote 2 comments here w/ the details and 3) I emailed you earlier per your request.  So hopefully, one of those will suffice.

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) over 3 years ago

Kerrie - apparently the email I sent you bounced back.  so here is the info again.

 Thurs 1/22 5pm
