Last Sunday,Tena and I headed to Anaheim to attend CHA. There were so many loose ends to tie up around here that I didn't have a chance to post about it.
I got there only to discover I had forgotten my camera...but I did have my camera charger :)). Good thing Tena had hers...I asked her to take dozens of pix for me and will post some when I get them. In the meantime, just thought I'd let you know that I was there. Had a great time with my roomie (that would be Tena)...it's been a while since we hung out together...glad we were able to do that again.
I was tickled to run into Peggy, my friend from New Jersey, who was there with her daughter-in-law, who is a rep in the New England area. We had lunch with Peggy and were joined by Donna, Heidi, Janet, Debby and Kandi, Donna's assistant, on the back row with Tena and me. Peggy is right in the middle with her darling pink rimmed glasses. Fun lunch, for sure!
OK, so what about the new stuff? There were a lot of manufacturers who had one or two cool new things...when I get the pix, I'll share some of them. For the most part, the new releases were fairly conservative in size. I do have to tell you that the graphic 45 release and booth were amazing...loved everything they introduced...be on the lookout for it in future kits.
On the kit front...well, it's been an interesting month of ordering and receiving (or not receiving in some cases) product. I don't think I've ever had so many challenges with getting everything I ordered...and on time. For example, when you place an order and give a "need" date, would you interpret that as a "ship" date? Hmmmmm. Anyway, I'm waiting on just a little more product that didn't come with the order...am planning to ship out on Saturday morning. Thanks everyone for your patience...mine has been tried quite a bit this month :)).
OK, back to work...have some classes in Northern California at the end of February to talk about, a trip to Australia in April to talk about, my project for Inspired (well, a bigger peek) to talk about, and so on and so forth.
But for now, just wanted to say thanks to all who commented and wrote about Creative Escape (I think it's going to be a great year) as well as those who sent along your b-day wishes to Vern...he says thanks, too!
