CHA Wrap Up

I could probably spend a week writing about CHA because there is so much going on there.  I think for me, the best thing about it all is reconnecting with friends you haven't seen in a while, meeting online friends in person and networking with new people.  Throw in all the craft inspiration, camaraderie and support and its just adds to the fun of it all. 

I came home and realized I didn't' take near as many photos with my own phone as I thought.  I really hate having my own photo taken, so i was the first to offer to snap the pics for others.  I was so busy taking photos with everyone else's phone that I bare took any of my own.  I'll be sure to remedy that at the winter show. Luckily I can snag my friends to show you some of the fun captured on film.

Being the rebels we are, we just had to crash the Martha Stewart party and took pics.

I was also a surprise guest for a live webcast interview with Charity Wings, a fantastic organization that raises money for non-profits doing important work. 

I hope you enjoyed vicariously attending CHA with me!
