CHA Day ONE!!!

CHA day one is now in the history books for me. And WOW... what an experience. A few nerves just before those doors opened, and from that very second CHA opened we were busy!! There was no real breaks or down time from 10 am until 6 pm! I was so proud to be in this booth...  and a part of Stampavie -  I have been so blessed to have had Stuart and Heidi come into my life and ask be to join this "family" and that is just what it is... ok... so I am really really tired and yes a bit emotional now. But it is all still 110% true!



Here are the bosses.. Stuart and Heidi under the Stampavie Logo sign - and I just have to mention the aprons they are wearing.. very proud my Sister made them for us to wear at the show, GREAT job Mel... they are wonderful! This photo was taken just before the doors opened, I think we all had a few butterflies at this point. But from then on it was just thrilling and fun! Painful feet and back and all.. it was really a blast.



Here is  full photo of our booth. Heidi and Jay Jay were busy getting the make-n-take table ready to go..  Is is a beautiful booth or what? Really shows off the images wonderfully.



A view from the side - Our "sales" table - A busy place all day!




I really can't believe I am showing this horrible photo of me.. but I was just so excited to get my photo with MELODY ROSS!!! Oh my we have been watching the GCD Studios booth being built all week, I just adore Melody's art and this booth is just as stunning as her stuff. Just wait until you see all of her papers this year and she has a new tool line that is a must on my shopping list this spring! And I have to say - she is so sweet in person a true joyful spirit.

I really do hope to get away before the show ends and take some photos for you to see... today I didn't really leave the booth from 9am until 6pm. Tomorrow will probably be just as busy... but my camera will be in my pocket so you never know what I might get a chance to snap a photo of :0)

As we closed the show, we had planned a dinner with Heidi from Simon Says Stamp - her and her 'Team" of ladies met us and we had a wonderful time talking about the show... products... the business and of course a lot of laughing about everything from our more than stressed waitress to  teasing Stuart. Hey the only guy with 7 ladies... can you say a must target? But I think he really enjoyed every moment, right Stuart?  These girls are so much fun and I so enjoyed relaxing and getting to know them! Meeting some of these people I have known for so long by email, forums, and chats over the internet has been so wonderful!

Well I must close and call it a night.. every inch of my body feels the past 4 days and I really do need some quality sleep tonight -

I'm delighted you're having such a wonderful time Michelle & incredibly jealous that you're there & I'm not!! ;) The stand looks fantastic; all of you should be very proud of yourselves.

Oh how I wish I could be there Michelle, it looks fabulous. And I think that's a great photo of you. Hugs Dawn Marie.xx

Kittie said...

Michelle, I love seeing the photos. You are right...the booth is gorgeous. Wish I could see it in person. I love seeing the picture of Stuart and Heidi. Tell everyone hello for me and that I am there in spirit.

I had to laugh about Stuart being with so many women. Two years ago I attended CHA with Dave Miller, the owner of Rubbernecker. He was running around with five women the whole week. Poor guy! He had a blast, though and he would be the first to say so.

Hugs, Michelle. Take good care of your feet and back.

Linda aka backroads girl said...

Lots of Motrin! Or Advil. Or Aleve. That booth is awesome! Wish I could be there to brouse through it, and all the other wonderful things you are seeing. Take as many pics as you can. And I love that pic of you! It's nice to see the "donkey/goat lady" at last! Instead of always hubby :) You are adorable :)

Hugs, Linda And take care of yourself while you are having the time of your life!
