CHA and a little Candy……

 

CHA was a blast yesterday!  I carpooled with Tam from SCS and it was really nice getting to know her better!

CHA is a little different from the trade show- Ranger was not there- so no Tim Holtz….. but there was alot to do and I ran into lots of people- including  Beate from SCS, Chrissy D and believe it or not, a lady I met is a stamp store in Kentucky in the past…..we both looked at each other and asked- “how do I know you…..” ?  It really is a small world! SO many familiar faces!  I completely forgot to take any pictures though…….

  I signed up to be in a ‘mystery’ FOCUS group- I rec’d an e-mail asking me to participate after signing up for CHA- and I decided it is really important for manufacturers to have feedback, so I signed up.  The group I was in was feedback about packaging for Martha Stewart products for gift boxes.  It lasted an hour- and after the hour was over, we were presented with this gift…….

Then I hit the floor and went to town!  I usually do not do make and takes until I am able to shop the entire floor, and I usually do not buy alot until I see who has what and check the prices.  Not alot was on sale, but to not have to pay shipping and handling….! I was able to make it all the way through Cha and then went back and did a few make and takes.

My haul:

These stamps were on sale for a great price, so I bought a few extra’s- one for me and one for YOU if you are picked by Random.org
