CHA here I come
When I embark upon a trip like this I tend to plan ahead...make sure I have all of my ducks in a row so to speak. For some reason inside of a week these ducks ALL came running at me!! It might have looked more like the movie Birds!
Until I got the email on Monday that I was officially a registered attendee I didn't even know for sure I could go. Following that came the rush...signing up for classes, then somehow (unintentionally) becoming a guest blogger for SewNews covering the show, and having people want to set up to meet with me! What? How did that happen? How did I go from momma crafter to behind the scenes designer to people with business referring to REAL designers.
So now, as of 30 minutes ago, I finally have my hotel reservations in place, I know my head will be resting in a LaQuinta Inn 12 minutes walk from the big show tomorrow night (thanks to my friend Mark and the LaQuinta manager Bonnie!).
I will be in my own utopia....Crafting/ Sewing world on one side of the street Disneyland on the other! I would stay forever if I didn't have a cute family at home that loves me plus they will pack up the show next week...
So stay tuned for the latest and greatest in the Craft and Hobby world...see what will be coming to the world of crafting that you will want to put your pennies in a jar for and projects that make you swoon. Lets be inspired together!
Please comment if you are hoping to see from any particular companies...The trade show is HUGE and will take alot to cover I would hate to miss what you are looking for!
