Hi from sunny (but COLD) California! Today was the first day of the trade show - CHA - and it was fun to see lots of friends! Here's Michelle, Karen, Gail, and I ready to enter the show this morning. One of the first people I ran into was my Texas friend Anita...
I didn't get to see a lot today since I spent too much time talking but I did find some cute papers and things.
One of my favorite new lines was from Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper. Just darling and right up my alley! I think you can look for this in an upcoming class!
Elizabeth Kartchner's Lucky Charm collection and Amy Tan's Yes, Pleas collection are cute too.
I really like a lot of Studio Calico's new collections!
How cute is this stencil??
I love seeing my Bazzill buddies - Frani, Carol, and Margie.
My friend Stayce has a new company called Art Anthology with yummy new paint colors!
Paper Smooches is a stamp company with really cool new die cut templates. I need some of these!
Two new collections from Graphic 45... French Country and The Secret Garden - love this one!
Loved these new collections from Simple Stories!
I got to visit with Stephanie Howell in the My Mind's Eye booth - so nice to see her here!
And of course, it's lovely to see my South African friends, Lyn and Glenda! I am so blessed to have these friends from around the globe. My life is so much richer for knowing them!
I'll be back with lots more photos! Do you see anything you like???
