I am back………..did you miss me?  I sure got a lot of emails asking where I fell off the earth to and the answer is I was in Anaheim, California for CHA Winter 2009.  It was amazing as always.  I had a great time and from start to finish it was busy, busy, busy.  In fact, I nearly lost my voice toward the end of the trip. 

One highlight was visiting the various booths and seeing my very own creative work.  It was amazing to visit those booths (Best Creation, Inc, Buttons Galore & More, Scrappin Sports & More and Clear Scraps) and see my kid's pictures smiling at me. 

Of course, the highlight of my trip was the Helmar Booth.  That is where I poured my heart and soul and even left my voice.  I had the pleasure of teaching make 'n takes, meeting new people, seeing old friends, meeting our new USA Design Team Members, talking to magazine editors and showing off the Helmar products. 

Make sure to check back to the Helmar USA Design Team blog to see our Giveaway winner.  We will be having monthly giveaways so stay tuned!

On Wednesday, my friend Carol came to the show and we were able to briefly walk around.  As usual, I made the most of my time and just loved being there.  I just know that this creative work is my calling and I love every second of it.
