What a difference a Day makes.. and lookie at all these punches!!

WOW... what a difference a day makes. Today was so much better for me, but between Heidi, Stuart and Jay Jay... I did drink lots of water today and did sit a little here and there. We really thought that the booth would be a bit slower today... NOT! There was about an hour this afternoon where it was calmer, but seriously... today was even busier than yesterday! It really is so totally cool!!!


I can't even tell you how much better I felt today... other than really tired and worn out, I feel like a different person compaired to me 24 hours ago! Well and my feet and back are killing me too, but that is to be expected and I will live and be fine for that.

So because we were so busy again today I didn't get a chance to roam away from the booth again... sad I know all these beautiful tools and supplies and I have seen much of them! But tonight on the way out the show, I did get into a couple of booths and see what was new... I asked if was ok to take photos and then snapped a few for you to see. One of my many obsessions.. punches! I love them all ...

Here is the new EK Success border punches... my oh my..


 They are all wonderful - but I think my favorite two were Puppy Paws....






And the Chain... Oh I can see lots of cards with both of these... those paws are just adorable, and the chain just so different!

Of course I had to track down the Martha Stewart Around the Corner/Border punches... Man Hubby will have to build me a second craft room if I keep "collecting" all of these!  But I really do think I "NEED" so many of them! They even have one that is a little farm scene around it.... Sorry... photo didn't end up so hot...

The we just happened to pass the Spellbinders booth... lucky weren't we that all of these were on our way out of the show huh...

Looks like lots of really cool shapes there... now if only I could talk them into a donkey that would be perfect! They are starting to have animals -fish and birds so there is hope!


We ended our day eating out - oh my this was wonderful. We found the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. the night we came in, but we were all so wiped from our flights we really didn't "enjoy" it like we should. Well tonight it was wonderful! Food was yummy - dessert was even yummier... mmmm peanut butter/chocolate moose! but good thing I had the tiny Mini one, cuz I was so full! Fun restraunt - what a great idea, the entire theme around Forest Gump... to funny!


Yes, I know really bad huh? I guess that is why he was a waiter and not a professional photographer.... POINT and CLICK usually turns up so much better...  So here the four of us are... Jay Jay, Heidi, Stuart and I... and I have no clue who the watiress in the middle is.. she jumped in the shot at the last second! LOL

Sign on the table is pretty funny huh? Stays on the run side until you need something, then you flip it to the red sign that says Stop Forrest Stop .... cute!

Must sign off for the night... my eyelids and every other part of me is wiped out tire, sore and well.. I might just fall out of this chair if I keep on going!  If things are slower tomorrow I do hope to hit a few of my favorite product booths... maybe! And camera is charging just in case I do....

BIG HUGS from CHA!
