By Sunday, after two days of the CHA Super Show, the regular CHA Winter Trade Show 2010 began and I was already completely exhausted.
During one of the Super Show days, my buddy Nancy told me we had walked about 6 miles that day not to mention how much standing in one place we had done.
My dogs were barking.
But I couldn't slow down, once the big show started there were people to see and TONS of stuff to check out.
Here are a few of my favorite things I saw at CHA Winter 2010:
My Mind's Eye, Lil Robot Line!
I have a soft spot in my heart for all things robotic.
The new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts, Elizabeth Kartchner looks like a model in real life, seriously, and was as sweet as the candy in her display!
Maybe because Allison is always in the booth with a cool Make and Take like this years bangle bracelets...
Hambly Blog. (those are rub ons!!! More photos of the Hambly Booth in my post on Craft Critique.)
Apparently I LOVED the Cosmo Cricket stuff because I had a ton of pictures of their projects.
These cupcakes looked good enough to eat but they were made with this new modeling clay, kids would love this stuff.
And I had to check out the new Halloween stuff, since hers is always my favorite.
I have to admit, one of the best parts about going to CHA is getting to see all my crafty buddies that don't live as close as I would like.
Like, Ms. Jessica, who did live in Illinois until a few months ago, it was awesome to see her and the cool stuff in The Greeting Farm booth, love those pinup designs!
And remember, I met Carol Duvall at the Super Show?
Well, I ran into her again at the ProvoCraft Gala and my buddy, Susie got to grab a photo with one of her idols.
The day I was in CA was my birthday.
It was the first time in my many years that I spent my birthday without seeing any of my family at all and it was totally weird.
But I had my girls to hang with and they were so sweet.
We went to another party with the Scrapbook Etc. group and it was fun.
The most fun was that they had temporary tattoo favors and Dana added one to match mine.
