This is my final re-cap and then I am back to blogging.  Lots to catch up on but first some photos and fun from my trip last week…….

Last week Helmar had the pleasure of having a booth at the CHA Trade Show.  Years ago I used to fly in, teach a couple of classes and fly home.  This year the show had a different feel for me and after all the hard prep work, make ‘n takes packed, and pallets shipped it paid off. 

And I love CHA.  It is a gathering of some of the most amazing artists and a convention center full of innovative new products. From the moment I see that big sign welcoming us I get all happy…..

Mark and I had the daunting task of taking all those preparations to set up the booth…….and it all came together.

This year I had the pleasure of working with one of our Design Team Members, Shelly Hein-Simmons who also happens to be a great friend of mine.  She shared her artwork, backed me up in every class and was great to work with.  So thankful to share this experience with her!

I got to give stuff away!  Oh I love to hear the hoots and hollers for free stuff….

And do what I love to do best……..share my passion.  I feel lucky to have people come back to take my class year after year, laugh with old (not in age) friends, and meet tons of new ones.
