CHA Day #3
Well I am home...or where I am calling home for this week. I just got settled back into my room at the hotel. We had such a super busy day today. The Strano Make and Takes went great, really busy....I mean REALLY!!. RibbonStiff
was very popular today, I am just so happy for Jen and Lou. They have both worked so hard and I am hoping it will pay off for them in a huge way.
I met lots of wonderful ladies in the booth. A lot of women from Great Britain, just love the accent. Make me think of my girlfriend Gillian who is from England.
But, the most exclusive guest to the Strano booth today was, GET A LOAD OF THIS
....Martha Stewart. I am totally not kidding, it was super. She travels with an entourage
of about 20 people, all dressed in black and very NY. Gosh the best boots I have seen in a long time. She came into the booth to check out the RibbonStiff
. And what was the first thing Jen grabbed but my book that I had made using the 3 Bugs papers. You can see it down a few posts in this blog.
She also looked around and checked out Beth Price's layout hanging on the wall, and some of the cards made by Jan and Nicole. WTG girls, your stuff is looking so super in the booth. Funny thing, I have not gotten any good pics yet. Will make it a point to do it but it just gets so busy so fast.
Hey Sue, your dresses have thier own shelves right with the RS bottles. Will snap some goodies on them also.
Anyway the MS visit was quite the sight. It was totally cool, kind of weird but cool. Most people did not even know she was there until she was just about gone. She looks good I must say, and in great shape. All in all is was very cool, she was in, she was out, and then she was off to Xyron! Two of her editors did say they would be back so we are hoping that will happen for Jen and Lou. Fingers crossed. These two totally deserve it. They are wonderful!!
I also met Mackey who is a member at SBO
. She came seeking me out after reading about me on a post by JA. Thanks Julie Ann!! Hey Corey, she was asking how you were. I told her you were doing great and had a new baby boy, well kind of new...lol.
Some of my shopping highlights were....Basic Grey
: got a number and a pretty low one. 4 new lines and the most awesome rubons, in some of the coolest styles and the color BROWN!!! Nicole you would just die!Cosmo Cricket:
Awesome chipboard books that attached to eachother with ribbons that are laced up like shoelaces. I also love their paper lines Halfway Cafe and Dutch Girl. You can see some of Dutch Girl and the Lace Up Chipboards here.... Sarah Baker you need to get your butt on thier DT. We should talk. I have some names.
No Pics but we are so ordering the large acrylic stamps, and papers. Love them all!!Queen and Co.:
Yup, ordering the felt on the roll. JA, you will love it.KI Memories:
Elsie's line is very cute. Three paper lines with embellies and stamps. Here are some of her layouts. I am thinking of getting the Toby and Roxies Papers, along with some rubons and cardstock stickers. I also like the celebration line. It has cool birthday papers and some felt letters also. That was pretty much it for KI.
And Carolyn and all the SBO Moms of boys expect to see Junkitz Extreme Boy
line at SBO soon. It was even better in person. So cool!!! Sorry no pics. Jan, I think you will really like it also!!Scenic Route
for you Miss Nikki. All I can say is YES!!! We passed on them last year and I am so wanting it this year. I left my catalog at the booth so I will report more tomorrow on this.Celebrations by KI Memories
MODs new Primary Line:
I thought this was pretty cool. And yes Autumn Leaves has some awesome stamps. Some more renditions of the journaling stamp that is so popular plus some fun circle shapes with words and phrases in them. The pics were blurry so you will have to trust me on this one.
Have a super night ladies. Will check back in tomorrow. I am hoping to see Maya Road and Cherry Arte tomorrow as well as FW, Hambly, and Page Frames. I have made some new friends over there. We had a meeting in Target the other night when we were all there getting some stuff for our booths. Chat later ladies. I am off to check out the boards at SBO
