Home At Last!

Good evening, everyone!

Hope it's been a great week for you all--I've missed our visits!  Looking forward to catching up with you and seeing everything you've created while I've been away...seems like it's been ages!

I just got back from CHA late last night--what a busy week we had!  I spent the week working with Sandy Redburn and Vicki Chrisman in the Crafty Secrets booth...I so enjoyed being with them--they're both such wonderful, hard-working and creative women.  There was product to sell, make & takes to teach, booths to set up and tear down, and so many wonderful people to meet!  I'm totally exhausted--I've got sore spots I never even knew I had....but I enjoyed every minute of it!

I don't have any new projects to show you tonight, but I just wanted to give you a little glimpse of CHA from my perspective...didn't have much time to take pictures, but here's just a few--definitely not in chronological order, mind you!

Here's the Anaheim Convention Center as we were walking in one morning--a lovely clear morning--we were very grateful!


A view of the booth during the Retail days...



The lovely Vicki teaching a make & take...look at those happy ladies!  There's Sandy hard at work in the background...


The display board in front of the booth showcasing Vicki's new 3D Shadowbox Frame card--it's just amazing!  It was, as one woman put it, "the hit of the show"!  Well done, Vicki!


Here's a close-up of the Accucut catalog page featuring Vicki's new die...pretty cool, huh?!


One of the boards featuring some of the newest Crafty Secrets' stamp sets along with some samples...



...a close-up of the fairy cupcake display...so adorable!


Here's a picture of the three of us on the last night after a delicious dinner...not my favorite picture, but...oh, well! 


I'll be back tomorrow with some more scenes and beautiful displays from CHA--hope you have a wonderful night...

Sweet Dreams!

  26. Hi, wig4usc! I couldn't get a private message to you--wouldn't work & I didn't see a connection to your blog, if you have one...let me know!

    I'm ALWAYS happy to share anything! I get my silver shavings glitter from a couple of sources, but one of my favorites is Little Pink Studio--she has so many wonderful embellishments, glitters, etc...
