Home Again

This is the sign that was sitting on the kitchen table, waiting for me when I arrived home at 3:30 am! I couldn't think of anything better to come home to.

So much to tell you about CHA...

Let's start with the reason I was there - to work the booth at Midnight Oil Scrapbook Designs.
I was picked up at the airport by one of the owners, Christy. She got a kick out of my obsession with the palm trees and we chatted for hours. At her house, I met her hubby, Anthony, and her sister in law, Ana. They were all wonderful people who made me feel very welcome. Later that evening, the other MOSD owner, Ali, and DT coordinator, Shannon, arrived and we stayed up til the wee hours of the morning getting acquainted.

We were up bright and early to set up our booth, which I must say looked amazing!

I even gave the grand tour to Brittany Beattie from Creating Keepsakes. It was exciting to be one of the new vendors and our booth attracted a lot of visitors, who did the make and takes and ordered lots of product.

It was so much fun meeting all the people who came through our booth. I was happily surprised by the gang from Scrap for a Cure (Diana, Patti and Anne). We had a chance to go out to dinner with Suzy West and Erin Yamabe from My Little Shoebox. It was a great evening. I laughed and laughed. I wish I could see all these wonderful ladies on a regular basis.

Another surprise visitor was my girl, Eva, from Treasured Scrapbooking. She is every bit as sweet in real life. She even brought some of her gorgeous cards for me to see, and all I can say is wow. The girl's got talent!

Well, still getting over to the time changes, so that's all for tonight!
