Sweet CHA

Ok... so I'm still dragging my feet around... too much walking... another reason I should exercise!!!

First up, I got to watch TIM HOLTZ doing demos... WOW!!!
And Theresa took a picture of us... Theresa, if you are dropping by, please drop me a line. I'm dying to talk to you. And I met Wilna, she was sad for missing you... MB said hi too!

Met the Rusty girls and Lance. They had set up a chocolate fountain in the booth... Uber Cool!

I loved rooming with MB and Libby... will do it again in a heartbeat!

The HOFer girls lunch was a blast too.

CK booth was busy with something or the other all along. It was so nice to meet CD, Britney, Brian, Jessica, Emily, Erin and the Simple crew. And Becky Higgins too. Love her new book. I used to be kinda scared of sketches, but I guess I'm converting.

DCWV treated everyone with free icecreams... YUM!!! You gotta see the new lines... even more yummy than the icecream... itching to get my hands on the stuff like the rest of the DCWV girls.

Tricia from Cocoa Daisy took us out to dinner... the Chicago style pizza was pretty good. Got to meet the DARE girls.

The Piggy Tales folks were so cool too. Loved working with you Theresa, Norma, Chris and Laura.

Met my cottage buds... Hey Marnie, I'm a very educated woman now!!!
Diane, THANK YOU... I'd have never known that those elks were there if you didn't take me there... and IKEA too

Carolyn, Dawn, Cathy, Tina... so good to see you.

First time CHA-goer... overwhelmed for sure! So if I'm missing anyone, please forgive me and my fried brain.

Off to Chicago

I was working on a Zsiage Sod last night till 3.30pm. After my last eye doctor appointment, I had a hard time adjusting to my new contacts... not a good time! Anyhow, I'm feeling a bit better now... hope things go well at CHA... my first.

I'm a RUSTY PICKLE CHEF

I was invited to join the team yesterday... feels good!!
This weekend has been solely family time... needed that. My kids are so delighted today. We got the new Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus CD and sang along and danced to it... Ashis cooked dinner... so exhausted and feeling content...

Beyond AMAZED

Love the layout in August CK - the one that says "Tag, You Are It" - awesome :)Ali
I got this email from ALI EDWARDS... my HERO. Amazing, how she thought about me and took the time to let me know... totally touched! Thanks so much Ali. Can't even begin to tell you how much this means to me.
Finally, I did get me August CK yesterday... its full of HOFer goodies among other inspiring ideas.

And now, I'm holding my breath. Didn't make the first cut in the Rusty Pickle DT. But out of goodness of her heart, Tasha extended an offer to the remaining 7... give me three RP pubs in the next 6 months and you are in.
And between Monday when the team was announced and Friday, TODAY, I was lucky enough to get all three: 1 for Paper Crafts, 1 for Memory Makers and 1 for Scrap Art Zine(Germany)...talk about MOTIVATION and HOPE!!
Now, I hope to make the cut. Wish me luck!

My opthalmologist appointment went well yesterday... still a bit blurry from the dilation though. Now, gotta take care of chores. See you in a few

On a sad note, I hate to see my old hangout http://www.cropperscottage.com/ close its doors.
I have made great friends there. Kim, Shannon, I'm so sorry that this didn't work out.

The HOF book will come out in October. I really like the layouts from my entry that got picked for the book. Can't wait to see the whole book with all of our works in it.
