Day one of CHA is done, and now day two -

Well it is a good thing you don't have to listen to me for this post... I have no voice. I don't know where it went or why. I really wasn't talking that much, at least not any less than I normally babble. But it decided to leave me and today may be hard to understand me... but I can point and click those orders in right? LOL

It was a great day yesterday, we are in a fabulous location, with a lot of the really big names, we are just in front of 7-Gypsies they always have an awesome booth -
I just love their booth - It is ... well so 7 gypsies! Especially that huge umbrella at the top! And all the wonderful old things they decorate with - you know that is me! 
I am really in love with these new clip board thingies they have. I am sure they have a much nicer name for retail - but you know what I am taking about. I really do think I need to find me one of these and decorate it. Really cool to hold cards that come - Have to add this to my wish list - 
And you KNOW these are on my wish list. I am just so addicted to new
punches! The EK Success booth is just in front of us, and while coming in yesterday I spied the new slim line punches. They are really coming out with some great ones, especially the large jumbo ones!
The board makes them easier to see the patterns - I love that green one.. oh and the pink is really cute like a ribbon almost - but the purple would be fun like lace doilies - but I was thinking the blue one you could even run ribbon in and out of the center... Ok.. I really like all of these!
And don't even get me started on the regular size slim line punches!!! LOL too cute!
Pink Paisley is across the isle from us - BUSY booth! In the morning they had Rhonna Farrer in the booth - wow what a cute lady! I didn't get a photo of her, I was busy with customers myself - but then I looked up and saw this person in the booth!  Yep.. that is Heidi Swapp! pretty cute herself - And they were lined up for her make -n- take of course. It is really kind of cool to see these "famous" people in the papercrafting world - showing off their products themselves and talking with the people... Ok so they are just people too, but hey.. they are like scrapbooking super stars!

Speaking of Super Stars....

Here are the four of us at the start of the show yesterday. We are all pretty worn out already, but very excited for the start of the show! That is me - wide on the left, then Heidi, Stuart and on the right Diane, our design team coordinator and make-n-take hostess this year.

I'll try and make it out of our square around our booth today and snap more photos out in the show. Don't know how far I will make it, but I'll do my best!

HUGS and-

This looks good; indeed they are just people, but they have a bit more admirers as we have. Enjoy.... Helen

Oh, I'm a punch addict, too! I NEED some of those! Do hope that your voice comes back, or at least that it doesn't hurt! Get some rest...I know that you are working (and hard to I'll bet!) but hope that you get a chance to look around a bit!
