Back from CHA
I'm back from Chicago - home to a quiet house. My in-laws took the kids to Ohio to visit great-grandma and play on Uncle Joe's farm for the weekend. They are having so much fun that they don't want to come home. IN FACT. . . my mother-in-law called to tell me they were leaving tomorrow, then called me back 15 minutes later to say that they threw a fit (Christian cried) and talked them into staying an extra day.
Seriously, does this mean I'm a bad mother? I am getting a serious complex. They don't even want to talk to me (either of us)! I think I'm going to have to plan a Toys R Us trip just to win them back on Wednesday. Christian rode on a huge, air-conditioned John Deere yesterday - I just can't compete with that. He used to think the entertainment system in the new Pilot was cool. Nana comes in on Wednesday night for 10 days so my name will officially be mud for a while longer. . .
CHA was fun! So many cool new products. I think my two favorite paper lines were Scenic Route (no secret) and Fancy Pants - very cool stuff! Loved the Heidi Swapp and 7gypsies booths - but that is no secret either. Heidi has some new journaling spots - seriously one of my favorite products! And. . .my girl Teresa Collins had some very cool things with Junkitz, one very unique item in particular that I picked up for the September kit. Awesome new stamps from Fontwerks (will be picking up one for the Sept. kit as well) and from Autumn Leaves. Nunn Design also had some great new trinkets - very classic stuff that I use over and over again. I am even having a custom item made for the September kit with her - so excited about this! Still trying to get settled and finish orders.
And for those of you in the Nashville area, there is a local annual event in September that I will be teaching at, The Simply Southern Scrapbook Convention. The link is www.simplysouthernscrapbook.com. It is being held September 7th - 9th in Franklin, TN. There are still openings for the class if you are interested.
Have a great night!
