Right Place, Right Time

I feel so overwhelmed with shock, awe, gratitude, inspiration....it's been a whirlwind to say the least. Sadly I am almost too exhausted to go into great detail. But, there is always tomorrow, my friends. And tomorrow I will share more...when I feel like I have the brain power to do so.

The least I can do is show you some more snapshots of CHA from the past two days, right? These are things that I am really excited about, or displays that I thought were really cool....I'll go more in depth later. These are just a little taster.

You already know that I was quite taken with the Heidi Swapp booth (can't wait to show more)...

 October Afternoon is a big time favorite of mine. There was a lot to take in...

Of course, Dear Lizzy for American Crafts (W.O.W.)....

Lawn Fawn has some exciting new things happening...

Over the next couple of days I will be sifting through these (and more) bad boys to compile a list of my "favorites," or, "must buy these products... even if it means going totally and utterly broke... making me need to get a side gig as a cocktail waitress (hey, I've done it before, I can do it again)."...

Stay tuned for more from the show. I will be blogging a lot in the next week or so. I want to share my first time CHA designer member experiences. Thoughts on the show....of course, details on the products....AND meeting all of THE COOLEST people (Yes, it's worthy of all caps. And yes, I am shouting.). THE COOLEST. Is name dropping frowned upon? huh. I feel like it's just too cool and unbelievable NOT to drop. I'll have to think about that. It's not like I'd be bragging....more like I am still elated that I was given the chance to meet some of these people in person...hmm.

Since the show began I couldn't help but feel like I was in the right place at the right time. Like I was EXACTLY where I was meant to be in the universe durning those EXACT moments. Not to get all deep on you...but I don't get those feelings often. Not like that, anyway. I really can't explain it. Except that there were so many opportunities for things to be off or go wrong, or for me to screw up royally and be laughed mercilessly out of the business before I even got my foot in the door. (Hey, it's possible.) But that didn't happen. In fact, every. single. element. of my CHA journey played out flawlessly. (Ok. There were a few minor fumbles on my part. But I managed to recover gracefully and slink away with some dignity in tact. I just chalked that up to being such a newbie. Walk it off. Walk it off. No harm done.) Really, big picture wise, everything came together.

Ok.Ok. Enough. It's feeling like it's the right time to hit the hay. (Please forgive my ramblings. I'm so tired!)


  1. I was never able to walk around the show so I'm living vicariously through your pictures! Keep 'em coming! PS - so fun to meet you in real life :)

  2. Thank you, I will keep posting for you and Mommy. ;) It was great to meet you too and see some of your work in person. Amazing. But I am not surprised.
