Yesterday was the second day of the Trade Show. This place is HUGE. I still have not made it to all of the paper crafting booths yet... and I wonder if I will get to see them all. I did spend a lot of time at the Provo Craft booth. The booth is really whimsical in appearance and I like it a lot. The photo above is just the stage portion of their area. I love the huge 3-D house on top of the storage area.
In the photo above Donna Mundinger and I are posing with Suede from Project Runway. He used a new machine, E-CRAFT to cut the dresses displayed being us. I must share that I think the e-craft is an AWEDOME machine. One of my jobs here is to help Custom Crops find new product to see in their store. This machine is a MUST HAVE for the store. It is another die cut machine but it does not use mats and the software comes with the machine. I suggest you check this machine out if you would like to add to your cutting machine stock.
Finally Diane (Capadia, who is my roommate here at CHA) and I went to dimmer with about 15 women from the message board. I had such a great time and met some truly nice women.
In the photo above I am posing with Chirsty from Provo Craft. She a Jim Colby joined us at the dinner. They were SUPER NICE and we had a great time. In fact, Christy picked up the bill for all of us and that was an unexpected treat!!
The photo above shows the group that attended, all but Dawn, Nurse Viper, who had already left when we pulled out the cameras. Below Diane and I posed for a silly photo with our empty glasses.
When we returned to our room were were joined by Joy and Melanie from Everyday Cricut for some girlfriend time. I do not know when I have giggled so much. I just wish my BFF girlfriends from home could have been here too. They would have loved this.
And with that said, I am now a half hour late for today's show so I have to run.........
