Notes from CHA

It has been so long since the last time I walked the isles of CHA. Wow I loved being back there. The difference was last time I walked around as a store owner picking up catalogs and debating on what new product we wanted to buy. But this year I walked around as a designer for a store. I was just browsing no catalogs I could pick up and sit around pouring over everything, and I could only hope that the store I design at saw something the same way I did and want to order from them.
I spent the good part of yesterday drooling over some fabulous goodies coming out and seeing some familiar faces and finally meeting a few others who I have only really known through blogs and facebook.

I love all the fun displays that some of the companies came up with.
Some of my favorites from yesterday are Jenni Bowlin, 7 Gypsies, Teresa Collins, Graphic 45 and Fancy Pants. I also love the Tattered Angles now that I know how to use it. I see a class in the making soon. I know there is more but I just can't remember. I may just need to go back tomorrow to refresh my memory.

Class Launch plus other goodies

The Scrapping Lounge will be having their class launch this Friday from 5 pm-7 pm. I will have classes displayed for Feb and March along with all the other talented designers at the store. Be sure to stop by so you can get an up close look at some super cute projects or just stop by to see ME. Also if you sign up for one of my classes your name will go in a drawing for a grab bag full of scrap goodies. If you sign up at the launch your name goes in twice.

Also if our launch isn't enough we also will have a few of our favorite guys from Quickutz showing off some great new stuff. I will let you girls in on a little secret. It has been rumored that the quickutz boys are kinda cute. I've seen a few of them and can tell you that there is something about them that does indeed make the girls swoon. You will have to come in and see for yourself.
Hope to see you Friday

My creative juices are flowing

Last night I went to the Scrappin Table with my friend Tammy. I was excited to actually complete a few pages. I usually come home from a crop with several half finished pages. We had both set a challenge for ourselves to see what we could come up with using our recent Scarlet Lime kits.

I have a love affair with flowers. I will try to sneak them in every page I can which gets tough because I have two boys.

Happy 2009

It was a very last minute decision to spend New Year's in Vegas. I thought Daren was a little crazy when he first brought it up. In fact until 5 minutes before we left the house to make the drive we had no place to sleep. It was just a fluke thing that I decided to check our time share one last time to see if anything was open and they had one room so I called. The guy said the people had just cancelled and I lucked out. We were planning on just driving home right after.
It was pretty cool how they closed the street down and all the people but I will say with it being Vegas and all I was a little disappointed. The midnight fireworks would have been cool had the firing spots not been at the end of the strip. We couldn't see them and it would have been nice if speakers were pumping music outside along the street. I was so in the mood to dance but wasn't about to pay the huge charges just to get inside any of the clubs. And I just have to say this one thing. If you feel the need to go to Vegas on a big day leave the kids at home. Really the strip is crowded, not normal crowded I mean in some spots packed. Daren always had a hold of my belt loop or something so we didn't get seperated and just to get through you had to just push through and then suddenly you glance down and you see a kid or even better a stroller. Sorry guys I love my kids to and if you want to spend New Years with them stay home or go somewhere less crowded where everyplace they turn they don't see some drunk fool or have beer spilt on them.

New Year's also has special meaning to us because it was that night 16 years ago that Daren and I meet and had our first kiss at midnight.
And just to give you all fair warning I have decided that next year I am having a New Year's party. So book those sitters now because I will not accept any "I can't make it" or "we already have plans". This is your save the date notice
