And, as my sister said at dinner, "A bad day at CHA beats a good day at work anytime." So, with that, I turned my mood around and decided to call it a fabulous "day off" from the regular SAHM's routine of laundry, chores, and dinner duty.
Enough of that....now on to some pictures....here I am with my friend Katie and [center] Nichole Heady from Papertrey Ink. Their entire team of ladies were so friendly and just a joy to be around.
This next picture is me and the all-time inspiring Donna Downey. It was a thrill to meet her and speak with her. She was exhibiting one of her original fabric journals and some of her products to buy. I wish I could have bought everything...I loved it all. (This was one of those friendly, "Hi, I don't know you, but can you take my picture?" moments and thus, the reason the picture is blurry....I will still treasure it nevertheless...and I earned brownie points because DD said she loved my necklace.)
Here is a picture of our group at the very end as we were leaving the showroom floor. Can you tell that we'd been on our feet for 8-hours straight? Do we look tired? or how about the deflated hair, the sore shoulders and the heavy bags? BTW, the pink ones are from Papertrey's booth.
