CHA Fun and a WINNER!

Hi everyone! Sorry for that loooong hiatus. Between running around like a crazy person at CHA, having a little tiramisu emergency yesterday, and racing against the clock to make 8 challahs today, things have been a little--er--disorganized.

I have some fun CHA stuff to show you, but before I get to that, we have a winner for the Ella Scrap your Single Years giveaway!

The random.org number was 13, and the winner is VERA!

I'm still single ;) so being able to get up and go at the drop of a hat is wonderful!

Yay Vera! Shoot me an email at keshet.starr@gmail.com and I'll sort you out:)

Now back to what you REALLY want to know about. . . . . .CHA!

This was a fun, fun trip. I was looking at scrappy stuff and hanging out with scrappy folk until past midnight just about every night, which is normally way past my bedtime, but it was so much fun I couldn't resist! Looking forward to lots of sleep and recuperation this coming weekend:)

The week started with a delicious dinner with friends:

(Special thanks to Jenni's husband Todd for driving us everywhere!) Check out Jenni's blog for more photos of the dinner and the meaning of our new vocabulary word, "poshers":)

There were so many fun things made out of paper to see at the show:

And lots of gorgeous tablescapes:


The Smash booth had this fun photo prop! I want one for home!


Not to mention these UBER-attractive glasses..... (ooh la la, right??)

SO many great new supplies out, like these Pebbles clothespins:


And can you believe this fun embroidery in the Amy Tan booth?

I had fun running into Nik at the Studio Calico booth!

Lots of pretty floral paper--YUM!

And as an end to the day, drinks with Elle (of Elle's Studio!), Jenny, Jenni, Linda and Cindy!


Whew! Quite a random little mishmash, huh?

And just to add to the random--the Elle's Studio July Inspiration Gallery is up, so go check it out! I'll be back to share my projects soon!

Tell me--What's YOUR favorite part of traveling??
