It happened again.

Thank you to my faithful readers and I apologize for going missing in action again. But that was the last time. I have been in Columbus, Ohio since Saturday and just got back last night. We had our Thirty-One National Conference.

It was an awesome trip with over 10,000 happy screaming women as we learned all the new exciting stuff for the fall/winder season.

 We got to see lots of new and exciting products. I am in love with the new Go To Tote in Navy Dancing Dots. I actually got to pick it up and try it out. I am ordering this the minute Fall products go live on August 1st.

We got to see a lot of ideas with Solution Sets that can help simplify and organize your life. 

And I got to see the new brown faux leather purse from our Jewell by Thirty-One line. 

I got to meet Janet Kincaid, who is the creator of the beautiful jewelry line we carry called JK by Thirty-One. 

I am in love with all the jewelry products.

I am very excited about the new personalization. The new Icon is the heart. 

AND you can now do up to 3 lines of personalization and up to 16 characters per line on some items. 

They are using heavier outline thread for the icons so they show up better.

In addition to the Thirty-One fun, I got to sign the Pink Heals Firetruck in support of cancer. This was dear to my heart because I have lost loved ones to Cancer and I have many Cancer survivors in my family so I really wanted a chance to sign this for my family.

In our spare time, I got to go to The North Market.

I had the best popcorn and the best glazed donut I have ever had. 

We got a sneak peak at pics of the new Christmas line. 

It is going to be a lot more Christmas items than usual.

Then on Monday, three of us walked to The Short North District of Columbus.

It was jammed packed with unique stores and boutiques. My favorite was a store called Global World. It was awesome.

I met a lately who had blue hair...on purpose. But just for conference.

And we even had one of our Thirty-One sisters get engaged on stage. She thought she was getting a free purse, but the boyfriend was on stage with her and when she got the purse he reached in and got a box and flipped it open, got down on one knee and proposed. She said YES of course. It was awesome. 

It was a fabulous trip.
