Duct tape, wallets and osteogenesis imperfecta… what on earth could these three things have in common?!?! Simple… one twelve year old Jake Grys. Jake took his talent for making duct tape wallets and turned those wallets into a dream trip to Chicago for a Comic Book Convention. Jake managed to raise enough funds to pay for his trip and his brother’s trip all from sales of his wallets.

While I didn’t attend the OI conference last weekend, Sandy from Perfectly Imperfecta did. Check out her reflections on the conference HERE.
And, may I say I’m majorly jealous she was recognized by conference attendees as the “blogger”.
I ended up not going to the OI Conference this weekend. Scheduling, pricing and lack of motivation all played into my decision. All the pictures, status updates and tweets from the conference made me second guess my decision to forgoe attending. Actually all the posts… made me regret my decision. But, what’s done is done. Maybe you’ll see me in 2014.
I can’t wait to hear all of your stories and to get read all the information that was distributed during the event.
