We're packing up our bags tonight full of samples, giveaways (and dirty laundry) and planning out our last day at CHA. Tomorrow we'll be placing last-minute orders and getting a few more samples (if we're lucky). Today was a whirlwind of order-placing, make & takes and searching for lost (expensive) cameras. The orders were plentiful, the make & takes were cool, and the camera was found (phew). We're spending more than we planned, so we think you'll really like what we have coming in. We'll post again after we head back home. Katie has plans to put together a mini book highlighting our trip. If you're in this weekend, maybe you can catch a glimpse!

Fawn: Anna Griffin - she is so happy that I decided to carry this line again (she would like you to buy some so she doesn't feel like she led me astray).
Katie: Photo op with Donna Downey (she practically ran to Donna down the aisle).
Chris: We R Memory Keepers Album assortment - just wait 'till you see how many albums we'll have in stock now!
I'm in the process of downloading Fawn's 821 pictures off her camera since she filled her card and wants to take more photos. So I'm going to use a few of her amazing photos to share some of our day with you. We'll post again tomorrow.
In the meantime, here are some photos of other highlights from our day, including: bumping into Suze Weinberg on our way into the show (never mind that my eyes are closed - aside from that it's a good pic, right?), David Tutera (the wedding guy - Fawn saw him in the Darice booth), Fawn with Ali Edwards (haven't seen her at a CHA show in a while), the girls from G45 (not the most flattering photo, but you get an idea of how cool their booth is - they all dress in clothing matching their new lines), Fawn & Katie with Tim Holtz, and again with Amy Tan (in her American Crafts booth setup), the girls with Donna Downey, Katie with Elizabeth Kartchner (for Liz M., we're thinking of you), a group shot in the Creating Keepsakes booth, and me - negotiating with the guys at My Mind's Eye (we're working hard for you). Enjoy!

When the doors opened (after bagpipers played, which always kicks off the show), we headed to our self-assigned areas to do make & takes, turn in orders and meet with sales reps. The three of us hardly saw each other all day, but we all got to see and experience different things (which we're all sharing right now). Now, after our Chinese food finally arrived, we have a few catalogs to pour over, then it's time to hit the hay. We'll hopefully have more news tomorrow!

We cleaned up at one of the events we attended tonight, and will be shipping home our winnings since they're too large for our bags (and the show hasn't even started yet). We are exhausted, so we're going to save our show floor planning for the morning, and we'll fill you in more then. Stay tuned!

It's almost that time... We're off to CHA this weekend for a few days of ordering madness. If you don't already know, this is the trade show at which we place our orders that'll arrive over the next few months. It's a ton of input,and a little bit of fun. We can't wait to share with you what's new when we return!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and that means it's time to start thinking about how you can make this holiday unique. Gather a few special goodies (some sugary, sweet cookies for your Sweetie perhaps?) and then join me for a quick class where we'll make cutest little boxes around. Using just 5 pieces of paper we'll make two paper boxes (3 1/2" and 4") in a Valentine's theme. Tuesday, February 7 from 6-7 pm. - hope to see you then. This is a great idea that you'll use over and over!

We've been looking for new vendors who carry licensed products, and we've recently filled that gap with Sandylion products. We have some adorable new stickers for characters from Hello Kitty, Pinkalicious, and Disney to WWE, Transformers, Angry Birds and everything in between!

Prices of the lots range from about $30 to over $800, and vary in quantity. You can view the bead lots during business hours at the store.
