I’m home sitting in my recliner with my coffee by my side!  What a whirlwind the last week was.  I truly meant to give you a daily update . . . . but meeting up with friends in the evening and getting a little BAD was just way more fun!  So many things good happened this past week but I have to honestly say that from a personal standpoint, this was the best CHA ever!  I had more fun hanging with friends I haven’t seen in a year or so, meeting new ones and letting what little hair I have down!

Before I get into more of my favorite finds, here’s me with Daisy from eclectic Paperie.


With Cindy Lyles.


I’m so sad I never got a picture with Leslie Miller.  We’ll have to solve that problem in the near future!

I know you’ve been waiting for this . . . . Darcie’s new images.  You’ll be able to get these from eclectic Paperie.


This next one was a favorite of almost everyone I met.  Viva Decor!  It’s paint in the most marvelous colors . . . . crackle, soft, paint pens and there is even polymer clays!

Look at the deep cracks and color of this bowl.


The bra and belt were made with dots of paint from the pens.


All sorts of examples in the middle of the make-and-take table!


I’m telling ya, I can’t wait to get my hands on some of this!

Then yesterday on our way to the Consumer Show . . . the Trade Show Aftermath!


One more thing before I leave . . .  thanks to all of you who stopped me on the floor or came to see me at the eclectic Paperie make-and-take at the Splitcoaststampers booth.  You absolutely made my days for me!!!!!  It was such a joy and pleasure to meet you.


Wow what a day it has been!  I’m a little tired and my back hurts a tad bit, but my feet don’t hurt  . . . . WOO HOO!

I have to say that this has been one awesome day!  First off, who did I get to meet this morning but none other that Leslie Miller.  OMG, we were having breakfast and I was taking my tray up when I saw the Flourishes Team.  I walked over to hug Jan Marie and THERE sitting next to Jan Marie was Leslie.  Can I just say that I have been a fan of Leslie’s for ever and a day.  We’ve emailed, we’ve chatted and have always said we would love to meet one day!  TODAY WAS THE DAY!  I was overjoyed!!!!!!!!!!!!

To make the day even better I walked the floor with Daisy from eclectic Paperie, our roomie Micki and Cindy Lyles!  Okay I have a new sister friend  . . .  Cindy.  There are very few times in your life when you meet someone and automatically feel comfortable and click.  We’ve laughed, joked, been BAD and had an absolutely awesome day!

I can’t end the day without telling you of some of my favorite finds of the day.

First off, Tim’s new Configurations rock!


Then Wendy’s Art Parts are going to be a major “MUST HAVE.”


Another thing I saw at the Stampers Anonymous booth was Darcie’s new releases.  These made me stop in my tracks, congratulate and praise Darcie.  I actually walked right up to her, introduced myself and told her I thought it was the best release I had seen in a long time.  Not her typical style but alas I failed to get pictures.  I’ll have them for you tomorrow!

Graphic 45 has gone Steampunk!  I LOVE it.  Cindy and I stood there, drool running down our chin.  If we could have figured out how to get these projects out of the showroom . . . .  well, maybe we shouldn’t go there.


Just look at this!


Last but not least, BasicGrey!.  I have really not liked the last few releases and haven’t purchased any BasicGrey for some time.  THIS you will see plenty of  . . .  BasicGrey Curio!


This is all I have for now.  We still have lots to see and I’m sure I’ll have more tomorrow evening!  Thanks for stopping by and all of you who stopped me on the floor today, introduced yourself as a blog follower . . .  THANK YOU!  You absolutely made my day!!!!!
