CHA update......

Happy Saturday!!!! Kerry & I arrived here in LA California very late Thursday night (1:30am eastern time) and didn't actually get to our hotel till around 3am(ish). As I expected I didn't do so well flying and the turbulence landing was rather rough (to say the least),but we are here.... As you have heard, the weather is has been TERRIBLE. It has rained the whole time we have been here, but as of this morning "I can see clearly now the rain is gone" (hehehe). It is sunny and the sky is blue (wahooo).



Here are some photos I took last night as the rain was settling. GORGEOUS.....GORGEOUS....It was one of the best rainbows I have ever seen. We settled in last night eastern time 6:30pm (our current time 3:30) with our Pjs and a take out pizza. I colored a few images and fell asleep.




Here are some Pictures from yesterday during our "real" first day of California. Kerry and I did the CHA Super Show yesterday and spent a little $$$$...ok, not a little. I will admit there wasn't much that I felt I "needed", until I came across the Carpe Diem both. It was a little piece of heaven, especially since they were selling the sketch markers for $3.95. YAHOOOOO....... needless to say, I spent a good chunk of cash there and I even took a picture for you. Now, don't be jealous, just kidding.
Besides the copics, the most exciting part of being here so far has been able to finally meet my
friend (in real life) Kim Heeber. Kim works for Clear & Simple stamps and has been working at the shows doing make and takes and such.
Today Kerry and I are heading back to the show for a bit and then it's all about meeting our online friends. I can't wait. Tomorrow we are heading to the trade show to see all the "NEW" stuff. I of course I take pics. If there is anything you have heard of and would like to see, LMK and I will photograph for you. Have a great day, I am off to get crafty and enjoy my first day hear in Cali without rain.
