connections

Trying to get all of my thoughts from CHA out of my head is a bit tricky. Being the worry wort I am, I guess you could say I was a teensy bit nervous about the show. It turned out to be such a wonderful experience! That's why I am smiling so big. :)
There was such a great energy at the show, full of enthusiasm. I was reminded how much scrapbooking brings women together from all over the world. I love how having a passion for a simple hobbie creates instant friendships & connections.
(Amy, April, me, Yamille)
American Crafts and the whole crew was awesome! It was so great to spend some time with Creating Keepsakes team at dinner and during my book signings at their booth.
I was giddy when this cute boy arrived. He's such a great support and I adore him! My favorite was when people recognized him and said hello.

I'm sure by now you have heard of The Girls' Paperie! It's a new craft line released at the show by my good friend Margie. It was one of my highlights of CHA to see her beautiful booth and products revealed! I am so proud of Margie and it was special for us to go through the process & experience this together. Her entourage, or daughters, Megan and Brooke were there for The Girls Loft too. xo

This is Suzy. My new BFF. She is hilarious! She was so fun to get to know and I am still laughing at her silliness like riding my bike during the show & her crazy driving.

Also, a big thanks to Camille & my mom for watching my sweeties while I was away!! xo

Dear Lizzie & The Girl's Paperie are my two favourites this year, looking forward to their release :)

I agree with the honey bee's comment, Where do you get your inspiration for your cute wardrobe, does your sis do your hair?? if so where does she work now? I used to work with her a long time ago.... Love your blog i am quite impressed!

YAY for you and your 1st line...I can't wait to see it at a store near me. Will Utah stores get first dibs??
1 question...How are you always so cute and put together as full time mommy and a entrepreneur??? All while downing sugar cookies and cookie dough.
I love ya..but honestly how do you do it???
