CHA, the Iron Man of Crafts

anyone who survives CHA, whether you are making orders, or taking orders, gets a gold star from me.

each person passing thru the front gate should be issued a survival kit... cross trainer sneakers, several pairs of cotton socks (cuz nothing feels better on tired feet than a fresh pair of socks), a 6 pack of red bull and high protein snacks (obvious reasons), a large, yet lightweight shoulder bag, a pack of tissues (for all those tears of joy) and sunglasses.
yes, sunglasses. to shield your eyes from all brand spanking new shiny stuff!

oh yeah, and a GPS. definitely a GPS.
can you get maps to conventions on GPS?

hey, now there's an idea.....

dang, i wish i was gonna be there. and i don't even care if i get lost. or get blisters. or smell bad at the end of the day.

my favorite place to visit is TEN SECONDS STUDIO. i know, i know, those chicks are nuts. but they're nuts in the good way. go say HI, and you'll walk away with a reusable free smile.
in addition to that, you've gotta check out their new product. besides all the fabulous new metal related items, Cheryl designed a big calligraphy stamp alphabet. it rocks.
i know this because i already got to play with it!!!

oh yeah. that was fun.

hope y'all have fun at CHA!
i'll just be here, home, feeling all jealous.

every morning...

i say to myself 'i should blog today'. and then it seems like a moment later the day is over and i'm crawling back into bed and i say to myself 'i shoulda blogged today'.
yeah. this has been going on for weeks. and weeks. thru xmas, thru the 'happy new year' and and and...

ok, so, a while back a wonderful thing happened when i didn't clean off my work area. well, i was able to to do another one, this one to share.

it's a photo holder thingie. it used to be a clock. a broken clock. and it was pink. 
not any more. tear it apart, paint it black, add some cool stuff, and wa-la!
(plus it hangs on the wall) the perfect rotating photo collector, or cool cards or hmm, phone numbers....or...stuff.

i love it. i just wish i was back in college. it would be 'the perfect thing'.
i mean really, who doesn't just love a spinner?
but hey, if you like it like i do, and you gotta have's in my etsy shop.

thanks for checking in. thanks for reading and looking.
