Months and months go into prepping for CHA and this year was the the example of bringing things together with teamwork.  As Education Coordinator of DecoArt I played a part of something much greater that took so much from so many.  I am proud to be part of that.  So in a nutshell here are the highlights from my time there…….

DAY 1 and 2 Set Up

Day1 Day1a Day2

DAY 1 – Trade Show Opens!


Filmed this Fun Decoupage Demo too….

Day 2 – Trade Show


Day 3 – Trade Show


Another Periscope with Tanner Bell and Courtney

and just as fast as it started…… ended.  Time to tear it all down.


Every so thankful to old and new friends I connected with.  I was only  sorry my camera was not out more often.  One huge highlight was meeting a big inspiration of mine, Joanne Fink, the Zenspirations guru/creator who paid me so many compliments on MY work which meant a great deal (ok, blew my mind!)….it inspired me to keep on doing what I love so much!  Plus I got one of her books!

JoannI left the show with a happy heart, no voice and more determined to keep doing what I am doing….work hard!

CHA Mega Show 2016 is a wrap. Thanks Team DecoArt!  Bring on PaperWorld in Frankfurt Germany next…………♥

Set an example.  Treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.  In other words, don’t be lazy and make judgments about people.  Be kind.  Ask about their stories.  Listen.  Be humble.  Be open.  Be teachable.  Be a good neighbor.”
