I am back from the Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show 2015!  I had the best time.  You can probably see that in my my smile here on Day 1……..


My day started with the set up of the DecoArt Booth where I was reunited with my friend Stacy…..



This is where the hard work begins!  Setting up a trade show booth is kind of like setting up your entire living room from walls to finish in a blank space….



It all has a way of coming together and I believe in making it as fun as possible….(and will admit that seeing my name with the others really felt great!)…



including this fella from England…Andy Skinner (this picture was the start of proof that he does smile)…


I had the pleasure of taping not 1 but 2 segments for Scrapbook Expo where I nearly sweated my pits off and peed my paints!



and in the end it did all come together.  We were there very late and were tired but not too tired to head out!


Team DecoArt!

CHA8That concluded Day 1 and ready to hit it the next day (well, not exactly but I managed!)
