IMG_2082[1]

 I am home from Anaheim and the winter CHA show. It has just taken me a few days to rest up, unpack and clean up my studio. WOW! What a mess…but, that is another story! 20120207_1720120207_18

I had a wonderful time in Anaheim.The week went by super fast because this time I was doing demonstrations , classes, and had quite a few meetings.IMG_2106[1]

IMG_1986[1]I was thrilled when I got to the show and I got to meet Angela, the owner of Unity Stamps.Angela gave me my new stamps that I have created and co-branded with her company. It was so wonderful to actually hold the finished product.

Some of the wonderful crafty gals that I got to say hello to: from top left: Dyan Reaverley , Margie Romney- Aslett, Claudine Hellmuth, Nathalie Kalbach

There were some many friends that I met up with or got to meet, but I never thought to take my camera out. I know… I can't believe it either!

IMG_2024[1] I stopped by and chatted to Heidi Swapp for a bit. She is so lovely and I loved her new product line! Beautiful !

{I did this mixed media self portrait canvas to remind myself that dreams do come true…if you believe and if you have faith.}

  I also was one of the designers that took part of Westcott's remix contest! It was so much fun! What a wonderful company!

 

 

 

I was beyond words when these two wonderful designers, Cheryl Boglioli & Erika Taylor approached me separately during the show to tell me that they had used my paper line, 'Live in Color' to create something kind of cool.

Cheryl used some of my paper on her business cards. Super neat idea!

Erika created a beautiful card using my paper & Suzy West's new embossing powder~WOW. It was on display at the booth & looked wonderful!

 

 

Oh, and for the record, yes…. I did have pink hair for the show!

Gotta be CREATIVE!

When I find my memory card…. I shall post more pictures. I had a wonderful time and now my head is full all kinds of great creative and colorful images. Oh, like the PANTONE class I took… but that is another post!image
