(Today is Tuesday at my house that means chocolate chip pancake day....)
Two of my helpers...like their hats? at CHA you could wear them for a chance to win the new Cake Expression..the chef has on her pink apron--another thing if you wore it you would win something....
I'm back! (from CHA!) This was SO MUCH fun! I met SO many people, I met a TON of my cyber heroes which was incredible. I kept calling them my friends--at one point the girls I was with
asked me if they were really my friends or was it all in my head....Maybe it was for the most part, but everyone was so nice.
The first day we were trying to make it to the back corner for a booth that I don't remember now. As we were walking up we see the American Crafts booth--there is Elizabeth Kartchner alone. I said, "come on girls!" And practically ran over there. She is just as beautiful in person as in pictures and just SO nice!
Her line is FANTASTIC and a lot of her product will be included in one of the upcoming kits at Scrapbook Circle--stay tuned for that! What was fun is later on in the day we walked up again to look at her paper (for matching purposes) and she remembered us!
This is Jill she is the owner of Jillibean soup, she is so fun! They have some fun stuff coming out, a few of which will be in some upcoming kits at Scrapbook Circle....
I was pretty excited to meet Laura Vegas. She is on the Ck dream team, and designs for Jillibean soup, and Making Memories, she also had a few items in the My little shoebox booth. I was SO excited to meet her in person, she is really nice! Thanks Laura for taking a pic with me! :)
This is Natasja Verbeek, she designs for Cosmo Cricket. She's pretty amazing....remember the flowers tutorials?--she inspired them. Her background is that at one time she was a florist. Go take a look at her blog, she has more and tutorials. This was her first time to the United States. She's so cute!
I was pretty excited and on the lookout for my designer friend Tanisha Long--she happens to design for My Little Shoebox, Purple Cows inc., and Creative Imaginations.
She's WAY talented, I first saw her demonstrating on Shimmerz and fell in love with her stuff! When she saw me she gave me a hug (see she IS my friend!) (Okay the white thing on my shoulder is a shirt...I wore it like a cape...if you wore it you had a chance of winning something...I didn't...) Hi, Tanisha!
In fact, I just found the Calendar Girls blog, (they demo how to use your cricut, cartridges, gypsy--it's VERY informative and they share ideas and how to make them--VERY fun!) right before I left and actually got to meet them too--they said
I was their friend too, so it wasn't in my head! hello--Joy, Melanie & Tammy!
Lastly, (for this post anyway-thanks for hanging in there with me!)
Yesterday we went and placed an order with Margie Romney-Aslett she's so funny! Her new line is FANTASTIC--we wanted pretty much of everything too! So stay tuned for that in upcoming kits at Scrapbook Circle.
Lisa, Jennie and I all agreed that this CHA was much better than last year. We didn't seem to be as tired, there seemed to be less people but more vendors.
With that being said, stay tuned here for some GIVEAWAYS. I have some fun things that I got and want to share with you! Thanks for stopping by and reading this MEGA long post! I'm off to make bread, do laundry and possibly something crafty! :)
