CHA Winter 2012 - Day 1

Well, I'm off to try to catch some much needed rest after Day 1 at CHA.  I had some great classes today.  I took the class from Crafter's Companion to learn all about their new Spectrum Noir alcohol based markers and it was a HUGE surprise.  I am sooooo in love with these markers!!  I've never had this kind of control using my other alcohol markers.  The ease of blending was absolutely unbelievable and shocking--you could constantly see the surprise and delight on the faces of all the students as we progressed along so quickly. I can't wait to work with them further!!  They are now going to be my "go-to" alcohol based markers and I am placing orders for them as soon as the convention floor opens in the morning!!

My afternoon class was with the fabulously talented and always darling Teresa Collins for her Teresa Collins StampMaker.  Needless to say, as always, Teresa was spot-on with giving us the information we needed along with several tips to help us design and create our own stamps.  Great job Teresa!!!!!

 OK, off I go to get myself as ready as possible for the morning, when the show officially opens and the Convention Floor opens up and allows us to see all the great new things that are waiting for us in the manufacturer's booths!!

Then when the day draws to a close, several of us (many from the Cricut message board) are meeting up for dinner.  It should be great fun and I always love putting the faces to the names!!

Alright, off I go!!  If you want me to check out something out for you, or if you want to place an order, just email me at gcporders@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to help you!!

Until later on tomorrow ....
