I have to say that this CHA was one of the best shows I have ever had as a designer! I met great people, made some connections with some of our wonderful manufacturers and sold some of my designs for publication. But I was super excited when April Thomas from Clearsnap asked me to teach two mini-classes at their booth. I had such a blast! In my classes, I taught 20 wonderful ladies how to watercolor two cards using Clearsnap's Smooch inks and Smooch sprays. Let me tell you, FUN was had by all!
This is a picture of Aleene, The Queen of all Crafts and me at the CHA show in Anaheim, CA. I was so excited to meet her! I first began my business as a craft designer after I had a few of my projects published in "Aleene's Craft Club" in 1999. It was because of Aleene, Tiffany and Heidi that I got the confidence to publish my designs, so meeting them all at the CHA show was a huge honor for me. After that, I bought Maria Nerius' book "Rubber Stamping for Fun and Profit" and the rest as they say, is history. These are the most talented ladies in the craft industry and I am humbled by all of them. Thanks ladies!!

Oh My Goodness! Well, I finally took the leap and started my first blog. I hope that everyone will bear with me while I navigate my way through these very strange waters. I am open to any hints and ideas to help me along the way. So all of you "professional bloggers" help a "newbie" out! I'm so excited to begin my journey. I want to share craft ideas and information about the craft world and I also want to share with you some of life adventures. This is going to be too much fun!
