My Wednesday at CHA in Chicago

Here is my Wednesday pictorial journal of my fun at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show.  It is incredible the online friends you finally get to meet and all the creativity that flows from CHA.

Erika Taylor, designer for Helmar and Nikki Silivas along with her designs for Debby's Designs.  I was fortunate that Erika and I stayed at the same hotel so I was able to enjoy a breakfast with her.  She is truly wonderful.  One piece of advice...look out scrappy world you are going to see great things from this young lady!!

Me and Lisa Fulmer of C & T Publishing.  Lisa is full of energy as well as talent.  One word:  Incredible!

Tami Byer and I were so tired we were leaning on each other!  Tami is the newest of Fiskateer Leads. 

Anyone want to guess who this is?  This is the famous Pinky!!  Pinky is a Fiskateer, but also designs for several companies including Helmar. 

This is the only photo of me and Ruth together.  We were too busy taking pictures of everything around us.  I have to tell you I had a really off week and Ruth helped me to hold it together and come home sane!

How about another side show of inspiration to make you drool?

My monthly newsletter is going out in the morning with all types of announcements, inspiration, and opportunities.  I wouldn't want you to miss out.  You can sign up for my newsletter at the top of the blog.
