A little behind...

Oh, and I am definitely not talking about mine, cuz it ain't little! I am just now writing about CHA and the Craft Supershow. I got back Sunday, but yesterday I just had to (yes I had to!) take three naps.

CHA was a blast! It was a lot of work standing on your feet all day. The talking part came easy until I started creating my own unique version of words. Lack of sleep can do that ya know! How cool was it to meet so many people. I just loved meeting some of my online friends in person. Everyone of them even more wonderful in person.

I worked Nikki Sivils booth. It was their debut at CHA, and wow, what a reception they received!! I was so happy for Dan and Nikki! Speaking of... Dan and Nikki are the nicest people ever. I also got to meet fellow design team member Charity Hassel. She was also my roomie while she was there. We found out we have so much in common in regards to our past. Anyway, we all had so much fun. We joked and laughed the entire time!! They were all great sports and took my abuse rather well, I might say. :D

I also had the pleasure of meeting the Graphic 45 ladies. Diane and her wonderful daughters were just amazing. I felt so guilty for not working there booth. I would have if I could have been two places. It was so neat to meet them. Diane, if you read this, thanks for being so sweet and appreciative. :)

Ok the super show... it was another experience all together. Since Charity left me... hmmm...you know you did girl...I was left doing the make and take all by myself that first day. Those people were like buzzards at my table. Dan and Nikki weren't fairing too well either by the looks of it. I really really really don't want to see another paper cupcake in my life. That is what I was teaching for most of the time. They were darling, but not good if you are cupcake challenged!

Anyway, the super show only had a few of the CHA partipants there. We were only there to show our products. LOL, some people didn't like it that they had to go somewhere else to buy. All in all it was a good show as well.

I also had the pleasure of meeting some of my fellow A Million Memories girls. OMG, I can't begin to tell you how hard I laughed at times. Each one of them just fantastic and crazy! I look forward to getting back together with them if I go to CHA in January.

I haven't downloaded my pics yet. If I have some good ones, I'll be posting them later. Yep, CHA was great!!!

OMG!!! I'm laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes!! Seriously!! I'm laughing and crying at the same time!!
It was like "buzzards" at your table!! Dan and I are still stunned that 1. we all survived that supershow and 2. that you didn't walk out on us!! It was that craziest thing I've ever been apart of!! I think I read that there were 4,500 consumers at the supershow!! And I think all of them came by our booth, pretty much unhappy that we weren't selling ANYTHING!! I've had nightmares that they came after us when we told them that "we are just showing you our products, but you can purchases them at this booth # and this booth #"!!!LOL!! Thanks for the laugh, actually I'm still in stitches!! Miss you girl!!
