CHA 2008

So this past weekend I spent in Chicago! I got to stay with Kalla, Chris and Caidan--with no other family! On Friday, Caidan officially turned one...so Auntie Betsy and Caidan hit the grocery store for donuts and the boy ate almost a WHOLE donut all by himself!
But my real reason for the trip was to attend the CHA Show 2008!
This show is where craft companies debut and showcase their new lines about to hit stores and I loved it. I got to see sneak peeks from all my favorite scrapbook companies, made some cool make-and-takes, got lots of freebies....and met ALI EDWARDS---the best scrapbooker!

Me and Ali....I was so excited!

Ali demoing these amazing alcohol inks which I have added to my must have list!

This frame in the middle is so cute and in my Christmas colors...don't be surprised if something similar is shown on my blog!

The paper line used in above project!

If I get really ambitious I may take on this project for Christmas!


My new loves....

Tupperware...but not the new stuff, it has to be the old stuff! Not only can I use it, but eventually I will be able to display it. The best place to find it...GOODWILL! Each piece below was $1.00.
This chair will be amazing when it is done. $0.99! at St. Vincent DePauls and Sara got an identical one...stay tuned to see the revamp!
