More CHA pics

I came to the convention 5 ft in height and I think I'll go home 4ft 10 as I've walked myself down. So much to see and do .... lots of great make and takes and freebies so I'm sure I'm already into excess baggage. 
One of my favourite booths is 7 Gypsies. So many great ideas and beautifully staged.....
Lots of new fastening which resemble mouse traps to me!
A fun make and take mini totes full of bling!
 With Diana of Hampton Arts, make and take using smooshes
We were photographed for fun by Smash and posted on the wall
Graphic 45 stand is another great piece of staging
Plenty of mini buildings around
It was lovely to meet up with Suze Weinberg who is retiring... sort of... as she plans to run art retreats in Portugal!! Good luck and good health to her!
Somewhere in this lot is our hotel. At night is is a myriad of lights from the skyscrapers and lots of helicopters whizzing around as there are landing pads on top of many of the buildings.

Oh Boy, this looks like an AMAZING experience Jo.
You are going to come back with excess baggage and ton's of inspiration, good job that doesn't weigh heavy;) I look forward to seeing what you create when you are back home....and recovered!!

I've been trying to catch up on all your previous posts. Can I call you a "Valley Girl?" "Like it would be like fun to like follow you like around." Like it (grin)?

So Suze is retiring. What a change for her. You and Tim together. I bet you frame that one!! And all those booths. It's amazing that all those booths I would visit, you showed, too. Totally awesome.

BTW, see my new rocking horses tonight (today) on WOYWW. And a big huge thank you, too.
