I just got back to my hotel room. I had a great time at CHA, where I did lots of fun make 'n' takes and saw some cool demos too. Most of the make 'n' takes were free, and many of those that weren't free were only a few dollars. (One was $10 to make one scrapbook page!) I also got some pretty good deals - especially at one booth where they were having some sort of Heidi Swapp clearance sale.
Best of all, I got to meet some of the "celebrities" I've seen on TV live and in person, including Judi Watanabe (JudiKins) and Julianna Hudgins (Sizzix/Ellison). The only disappointing thing was that there were so many vendors missing from the show. Oh,yeah. I wasn't too crazy about the $5.25 "Nathan's" hotdog and the $3.50 cup of not Starbuck's coffee. I mean, if I had wanted to pay those prices, I coould have gone to Yankee Stadium!
All in all, it was a great show, and I had a blast. We leave for home tomorrow, and we'll be stopping in South Carolina and Virginia Beach on the way. I can't wait to scrapbook the pictures I've taken. Until next week, happy crafting!
