⏪ THROWBACK THURSDAY 🔙

2017~ This is me with Angela, Karen and Catherine. We were all helping out for Angela's first large event, Create It run by HOCHANDA TV. We stayed close to Karen who lived just down the road. It was a different couple of days. The ladies did lots of demos during the two days, while I was involved in keeping the stock levels and making the stand look nice. I also helped out Liz from Kallosphere. She is also on Hochanda TV now and again.
