CHA Day 2

Published by at 11 01 am under Chit Chat

Day 2 for me, Friday,at CHA started with Jan Marie, Susan, Jerri Kay and I checking out the floor. Between bumping into people, a lot of quick hellos, and trying to see all we could in that short, short time, I had to reportto the JustRite booth at 1:00 to do make-n-takes. That was a blast — I did the little black and white bridesmaid dress favor boxes for over 4 hours until they closed down. All the make-n-takes at the JustRite booth were VERY well recieved, and they had a ton of them going on all three days. The volume of display items was also very impressive and they drew a lot of attention not only from prospective buyers but also magazine editors, news people, writers and wedding planners. It was fun to take that all in from the sidelines as I was doing the make-n-take projects. I almost hated for it to all end that afternoon at closing time!!! The new products coming out by JustRite are truly amazing — and I’ll share more about them in another post — but just think circles, large circles, and ever LARGER circles, and ovals, and even larger ovals, and think of a rubber grid to snap your alphas into, a large rubber grid — large enough to create full sentiments and even short sentences — complete with new alphas, too!!! No more stressing to get alpha letters straight on your project — perfection, EVERY time!!! Can’t WAIT to actually get this product so I can show you!!!

From there our little group headed overto the SCS CupcakeReception at the Hyatt next door. This was another, OH MY GOODNESSexperience!!! Many very familiar faces I had not run into already were there — oh what fun!!! And everyone was SO friendly and nice — a very festive atmosphere with lots of picture taking going on. Here’s some I got, and,sadly, many of mine didn’t turn out, but here’s a few:

What a pleasure to meet these ladies — and there were so, so many more I met that I don’t have photos of — oh, I only wish I did. It was truly an experience I will always cherish and never forget.

Hope you are getting some rest!…and to think!…I thought I would be more rested with this trip since I wouldn’t be getting up with the baby! I don’t think I slept at all while I was there! I need a vacation now! 😉 It was well worth it though! Have a good one Sharon! 🙂
