CHA - Craft & Hobby Association Show

Yesterday I went to the CHA Winter Trade Show.  The CHA {Craft & Hobby Association} Winter show is going on right now in Anaheim... and since I live within driving distance I decided to check it out.

side note... blogging from my old PC laptop vs. my lovely mac desktop.... not even close!
So i apologize for the lack of photo editing & adding of detailed captions.  More photos & info to come... but here is a peek at some of what I saw.

Ashley of Little Blue Boo
love this girl. love her spirit.

Mod Podge

Dear Lizzy

My block.
...No Day But Today!

more soon!

...today I'm headed to Sew Modern to take a class from Anna Maria Horner... it'll be nice to be a student for the day!

I'm in LA all week... so if it takes me longer than usual to get back to e-mails that's why!  I mean really... would you be responding to e-mails or playing with this little one?... and her brother who is busy playing a game on his iPad...

Oh my gosh! It all looks so inspiring and creative! And now you get to play with Anna Maria (how did I miss that, I would have taken the day off!) and the sweet little guys too, what a fun week and we'll get to see and hear more I hope.

Okay, I want to live in Anna Griffin's booth. The colors are so restful. Thanks for the tour! Have a blast in AMH's class - hope you'll do a post about it. Aliyah's such a cutie!

I have five blogs on my Must read list, and this morning, I started with Little Blue Boo... then from there I clicked on my Jaybird Quilts icon to read your blog, and the first photo I see is you with Ashley.

I should have known you two would know one another! Looks like it was a great show.
