Just wanted to pop in and post this video I did for the Sizzix blog last week. It's a quick look at what will be coming out at the show. And I am very pleased to announce I figured out how to insert music into a video (!) for your viewing (and listening) pleasure.
CHA will be held in a new venue this year- Las Vegas- so it will be nice to explore. Unless it's too hot. Then I will not be leaving the hotel/Convention Center. Here's what's on the agenda:
Monday, July 22 Education Day
- Designer Showcase set-up- this is where designers set up a tabletop display of their work in hopes of getting new clients. I am excited about mine (if I get all the parts done)... Come see me in Booth 116
- Round Table Discussions- moderating a table at on "What CHA Designers can do for you"
- Sizzix Rep and Retailer Training
- Helping my friend Ann Butler out in a class she's teaching

I am getting both tired and excited at the same time looking at this. Amy Bowerman of Plucking Daisies, a blogger and friend I met at SNAP, is coming along to help me- so happy to have her along! Also Pam Bray from Scrapbook Flair, Pam Keravuori from Pamela Jane's and Barbara Rankin from Black Hole Arts Studio made the most beautiful samples for me at the last minute- God bless you all- they are amazing!
If you are at the show, please stop by and see me- I love hearing what you all are up to. I will try and post about what's going on but it's a new place and not sure of the internet situation. If that doesn't work, I will take pics and share when I get back home.
Thanks for stopping by- wish me luck!
