Getting Ready for Stampaway

Hi Everyone,
I know you are wondering where I've been. Well last week I was in Chicago attending the CHA event and I must say, I had a blast.

I worked a booth with a friend who was introducing her new bow maker tool. And there was quite a buzz about this new tool. And I must say that I use this tool all the time. It is so easy to make a bow using it.Chances are when you see a bow on one of my posts I used the bow maker. Here is a link to her site. http://craft-deebowz.blogspot.com/ She has posted some pic's and a quick story about her new bow making tool and the CHA convention.

The overall attendance at CHA was down compared to years past. But on the other hand that made getting in to talk to people easy and quick.

It was great to see some of the people I have known for a long time, and to touch base with them and talk about the new things they are intro'ing.

I got back Friday and have been busy finishing up on my Stampaway classes ever since. Phew, was I  farther behind this year than I thought. I will be done by the weekend and then I can get back to my everyday routine.

Next week I have:
At Stampaway
August 1 - Wednesday nite - a Stampaway class at Stamp Your Art Out working with glitter and outline stickers.
August 2 - Thursday @ 12:30 - I have a large class (36 attendees) in this  class that is packed full of 3 really cool projects. 
Here on the blog:
August 1 -  the new monthly Sparkle N Sprinkle Sketch Challenge
August 1  - the next challenge at Cornish Heritage Farms
August  3 and Friday Aug 4. - the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog Hop -  The theme is Our Furry Friends.

BTW, Sparkle N Sprinkle has added digital stamps to their line up so all you digi lovers will have some really cool digitals to use for the monthly challenges. 

OK  now I have caught you all up on what I've been up to and what's coming next week. Please stop in next week to check out the posts for the challenges and the blog hop while I am at Stampaway. Have a great week and I will be back soon.
