It's hard to explain but the trip always seems really quick, yet really long all at the same time. I love seeing all the customers, enjoying conversations about the industry, how business is and new ideas, and also making new contacts and business. The days fly by because we are busy and there is so much to do, however all in all we are gone for about a week and the days are long too.Today over at Bella Blvd's Studio Blog, I'm sharing additional photos and a recap of CHA. Stop by for more information and inspiration.
I designed four new collections for CHA Winter that will begin shipping the week of February 17th to customers all around the world. So be sure to as for Family Forever (above), Max, Molly and Lucky Starz (below).
While I have met Design Team member Nicole Nowosad before, I never really had the opportunity to chat and really get to know her. She came to dinner with us one night....we had a great time!
And one of my customers, Scrapbook Gallery, has recently been purchased by a new owner (on the right) and is currently remodeling the store and will be re-opening soon as the Scrapbook Gallery and More PR. So proud of Anette and her new adventure. We need more new stores and excitement like this in the industry!
Thank you for following me on Facebook throughout the show and for all the wonderful comments over at Bella Blvd about my newest collections. I can't wait to begin designing some new workshops with these products!
