WOWZA!






It was a thrill to be in the middle of the scrapbook/craft chaos at CHA today. I went down last night and got to spend some down time with Elsie and Shannon Tidwell before things got busy. I got into registration before the line exploded and as I was sitting patiently, saw Ali Edwards get stopped by a few fans. I smiled on the inside because I am not a 'stop and say hi' girl. I'm a 'look from a distance' girl. I'm much more likely to introduce myself to someone who may recognize me. When I saw the lovely Celine Navarro and her friend checking out product at a booth, I rushed over and grabbed her. I also stopped by Daisy D's and met Stephanie Dos Reis, who's first line just premiered at the show. I was feeling pretty brave until I saw Jeanette and some others from SIStv. I just smiled on the inside again and walked on by. I ran into Michelle and Amy Tangerine and Kristina Contes and Morgan at the Love, Elsie booth and met a lot of lovely scrappers.
I made the rookie mistake of not bringing wheeled luggage to carry all those catalogs! Check out some okay pics of some of my favorite product here. I'm off to bed. More soon!

P.S. The top four LO's were samples for the show. LOVE the Daisy colors and the whole Forrest line. They are so beautiful.

Love the new LO's! So jealous that you got to go to CHA. I've never had the chance to go, so I have to live vicariously through others. I'm off to check out more of your photos from the show. Thanks for sharing! :0)

Home today due to one of those Midwest ice storms. So I have time to share a few thoughts:

1) thanks for the CHA peeks. I have always thought that you really have such a great eye. You would be great as a purchaser. Co.'s do have those.
2) I luv that little deer sheet of paper as well. It's gorgeous. Reminds me of the Dear line from Steve&Barry's, which is so cute as a little embroidered logo.
3) you look so great in the red accessories and cute white lace.
4) I'm not much a 'gush over big names' kind of girl either. I like my privacy, and I assume most others do too. But there is a little thrill to see well knowns.
