For example CK doesn't have many listing for stores in Utah and the ST had several; stores in WY are never in CK but there were a few in ST; CO never has many listings in CK, but again there were several in ST. This magazine is pricier than CK, so I don't know what to make of this. Any ideas?

What's going to happen to the manufacturers if CK goes under? I don't think the other mags are doing very well either, so where are they going to advertise? And let's not forget ckc and cku...even if attendance has declined, I think the manufacturers do a lot of business at these venues. If Ck goes under it's going to have a huge effect on the rest of the industry. Are we ready to go back to having nothing but cardstock, glue, stickers and deco edge scissors to scrap with? Even the thought of that makes me feel a little panicky. I have done pretty well as a side business making paper crafts to sell at craft shows, and I won't be able to do that any more if I don't have any decent products to use. I really hope this is just a temporary thing and not the beginning of THE END of the industry.
Erin, I'm really sorry about your situation. But if you do write that novel, I definitely will read it!!!
