No. The CHA CHA in my life story is not a dance... it's a convention. A place to go to see all the incredible tools and toys designed by the Craft and Hobby Association member manufacturers to inspire crafters of all sorts to dream big. So... I am here in Anaheim, CA to be inspired and, believe me, creativity is in the air! I came in yesterday to take a Photoshop Seminar... mostly learned there's so much I don't know but now am eager to experiment with. Today the show floor opens and I'll be browsing all the wonderful booths looking for things to bring back home and either use to create new product to offer to you or maybe even a new "favorite thing" to add to the store.
I am hanging out with best friends, Audrey Jeanne and her husband Steve. Audrey Jeanne is an incredible artist and designer... you can see a delightful sampling of her work in the form of digital downoads at D.A.I.S.I.E. Company. We had dinner Friday night with Stacy, the Creative Director of D.A.I.S.I.E Co. and Andrea, another of their designers. It's wonderful how with some people, after just a few minutes of talking, laughing, and eating together you feel like they've been your friends forever... that's how it was with Stacy and Andrea. We had a great time and stayed up way too late!
