H{ippity} Hop! Live from Anaheim - it's CHA Nights!

Oh my...we are having a blast here at CHA. So much to see, so many people to meet, so much to do...it's fantastic! We're just across the street from Disney, but the park can't even turn a head compared to the beauty and fun in the Convention Center!

I love how generous all the attending companies and businesses have been. Not only have we been treated to demonstrations of products and patient instruction from industry leading crafters, but we've been given samples to take home for experimenting. I cannot wait to show you things I've learned!

I was able to learn from Heidi Swapp using Tattered Angels products - the differences, the nuances, her favorites, her tricks and tips. It was *awesome*!



Heidi Swapp shows attendees how to use new Tattered Angels' products.

Beautiful people. Graciously sharing. Encouraging, empowering, evolving.

I love it. LOVE it!!

So...I've been a little distracted, I've been a lot overstimulated, and a lot sleep deprived. This is the project I tossed together using my Make and Take from Basic Grey's new Kioshi line.

Yes, I know...it's not a great project, but it is something terrific to me...it's a moment in time that will remind me of CHA for years to come. It will remind me of the ippity girls, and Kelly, from Kentucky, at Basic Grey who talked to me of how she came to work for them. Beautiful people, the heart of every product and every company I've come in contact with so far.

Imperfect people, imperfect companies...doing what they do, and putting themselves out there to help us take the next step along our creative pathway. I hope you are inspired to try something, just for the fun of seeing what you get when X meets Y and gets combined with Z. Such fun!

Oh - I'm an {ippity} chick now... watch out for future sales!! You are going to LOVE the new sets. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! See you soon with more CHA updates!

Cool runnings - peace be the journey.  ~ky
