I have shared the make ‘n takes, demo’s, workshops and more from CHA.  Now for the good stuff…the down time!  The CHA Gala was an unexpected one for me.  This was a cocktail attire party that of course I did not have the appropriate attire but thanks to Sharon (dress) and Pla (jewelry) this came about!


We clean up nice….


Stacy, Andy and I took one night to get away and hit Downtown Disney…we have the best time!  We just turned into big kids…

and had a yummy dinner at House of Blues!


From start to the last dinner we all enjoyed being with one another.  We worked hard and played hard.  That is all you can ask for…



I tried to get photos of everyone but did not 🙁  .  I want to say a special thank you to the entire Decoart Team:  Stan, David, Patrick, Stacy, Donna, Pla, Sharon, Kristi, Kelli, Andy, and Mark a wonderful CHA 2015 show!

Find your balance between planning and presence – between striving and appreciation.  Work hard, but don’t go looking for something better every second.  You must be willing to loosen your grip on the life you have planned so you can enjoy the life that is waiting for you in this moment.  It may not be everything you want for your future, but it’s everything you need right now.  Experience it and appreciate it.”
