California Dreaming...Winter CHA 2009

Well, here we are in California! We are so excited for the convention to start. For those of you that do not know, Kell and I are in Anaheim for the Craft & Hobby Associations (CHA) winter convention. This is where all the manufacturers release their latest and greatest. We are like kids in a candy store!! The booths are gorgeous! You see all those famous crafters walking around like Becky Higgins, Tim Holtz, etc. It is so cool.

Last time we were here together (2 years ago) we basically stalked Tim Holtz. We hung around his demos for an embarrassingly LONG time! We finally did get the nerve to ask him for a photo with us….that is the one that we just cannot bare to take off our website….yes, we are obsessed! It is our mission to get a new photo with him this time! We will let you know if we embarrass ourselves again or if we decide to lay it cool.

It is our plan to keep you posted on all the happenings here in Anaheim. We want you to feel like you are actually here with us! Sorry we couldn’t book a party bus to this show! Each day we will post our to do list and then we will let you know if we crossed everything off.

So here is tomorrows to do list

1. Learn tons of new tips and tricks at our 7AM classes so we can come back and share them with you. I have a sweet Magenta class and Kell is taking a Ranger class.

2. Literally run to the Basic Grey & Spellbinders booths and place our order with them. Note...orders are filled in the order they are placed so you will thank us for all the intensive training we have being doing over the last two weeks when you are working with the NEW Basic Grey before all your friends in other cities!

3. Meet our new BFF ( Paris Hilton) and get a pic with her.

4. Try not to embarrass ourselves around Tim

Wish us luck!

Oh, just so you know, the store is still open while we are away. We have our amazing staff eager and willing to assist you. We will be back on February 3 with lots of new projects and demo products for you to get excited about

OK you guys are just too funny. Training and working out so you are in the first 100 at the Basic Grey and Spellbinders booths. Kelly you mentioned in the store you wanted to beat your last number ........let me know how you do. Kim don't let anyone bull you over. I am cheering for you 2. Make sure though it is not all work related and have fun with your hubby's.
