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.
All this while working together to make it all happen…….
So much more to share from CHA Winter 2010. Enjoy this photo re-cap…….
That is a wrap folks…………..Stay tuned for CHA Summer 2010 in Chicago, Illinois!
