WORKING...

So I just got back from CHA in Orlando. They moved it from Chicago to Orlando. Which is good and bad. I loved having a fabulous excuse to go to Chicago - one of my very favorite cities - at least once a year. But it was awesome to go visit my brother in Orlando (and lay by the pool by myself and soak up the sun! - even if it felt like a sauna!!)

CHA was very productive. I felt like I got a lot of great deals this time and will have lots of cool things to offer up to my customers in the coming months!

After a few late nights staying up to get all the calculating, figuring, ordering taken care of, I had a chance to have some fun at the show.

My favorite booth is the Doodlebug Designs booth. It's always set up like a little candy house. It would be the type of place you would love to have as a playhouse for your kids (or yourself!). Here are some shots of it with one of me 'in the kitchen, baking cookies'!









Also, the one and only shot from the night I went out with my brother and friends....


Unless you consider these two 'photos from the night...' (First is the front cover of a great newspaper in the Orlando area. Second is a shot of my brother's friend, Brendan, which may have been manipulated to look as if it was in the newspaper. I don't know. You'll have to ask Bennie / Brendan for the truth...)
