a little more about CHA ...


so you would think that after CHA I'd be sitting on the couch eating bonbons...
NOT SO!

Now there are flights to schedule, class instructions to write, class supplies to order & organize when they arrive, kits to make & then ship...

nope...no bon-bon time here!!

HEY...
Did I tell you that I ADORE art parts?
I think I may have mentioned it???

One of my most favorite of the art parts is the spool...

I like that it's 3 pieces...
that makes it very easy to paper, paint, ink or stamp the individual pieces...

it would be way too hard if it came assembled...
and hard to ship too...

Here's more spool fun...
this one was in tim's ideology booth...

the curio knob makes a great flower center...
you KNOW I see flowers everywhere...

I can't help it...



so I told you that @ CHA, we work hard...
but we eat hard too...

here's the world famous Ms Keychain...
aka Karen Morikawa...

this was SERIOUSLY the largest serving of dessert I have ever seen.
EVER!

This is the carrot cake from Gibson's, where we had an AWESOME dinner with the Stampers Anonymous family...

even though we were stuffed...
we decided we NEEDED dessert...

Ted told the waiter to bring 2 servings for us to share...
plus apple pie for Michelle & ice cream for Ted...

the waiter said...
are you sure?
how about just one piece?

we had NO CLUE & about fainted when this was served...

take a look...

5 pounds (or close to it) of yummy goodness...


all 6 of us had plenty to eat...
Keychain took the rest home & her family was still eating on it 2 days later...

if you go to Gibson's...
my suggestion...

get ONE...
it's wonderful & HUGE!

Here's my portion of the Stampers Anonymous booth...

I took a photo that actually turned out...
shocking!



Hmmm...what else?

Oh...

the book #3 giveaway...

THANK YOU ALL for the comments!
I appreciate the time you take to send them...

the book goes to...

Dale has left a new comment on your post "CHA was ...":

That spool art is the most 'I wantable' piece of art I have ever seen. You make me drool with arty needs, but dare I say, you can keep the cake 'cos I don't have a sweet tooth. How lucky am I then - not - 'cos I love salted peanuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If those stamps need a home, I have a shelf just waiting to welcome those little orphans. I offer a loving home in which they will feel loved and needed, where they will be surrounded by similar friends. Thanks for a chance to adopt some of your babies.
