I'm going to CHA in July:).  I'll be hopping around the show, checking out some booths I've already got on my 'snoop list'...and also be setting up shop for part of Tuesday and Wednesday in Booth #918, where my new rubber stamps will be revealed!  That is pretty exciting:).

To be honest, my heart sinks a little when I think of leaving the kids and Phil.  I really have parting issues:).  (Seriously.  I feel homesick away from them.)  But, my mom asked to come along.  She has always wanted to go to Chicago...and I've never had the opportunity to just go on a vacation with mom.  Just mom and me:).  So she is making this a special and exciting trip.  I'm very thankful for this working out and getting that one on one time with her!  

During the week of CHA, I'm planning a super fun string of posts, giveaways, and guest posts!  It will be a lot of fun around here that week-- you definitely won't want to miss it!:)  I'll have two more cameras to giveaway (yup.  TWO more!) and a bunch of other goodies.  I'm excited to invite some friends to guest post as well...And yes!  I will post a free digi for ya'll.

  22. Have fun at CHA! I am so excited for you that your business is expanding into rubber. Ok, let's face it. I'm excited for me, too, because I admit I'm more of a rubber than a digi girl. Your stamps are fab either way, though. Such talent!
